Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Inductive logic has its limits.

Its validity decreases as the complexity of your subject increases.

In physics, you can take simple measurements that validate inductive thinking; for example, how long it takes an apple to fall from a tree. In evolutionary theory, you cannot; for example, the genetic sequencing of retroviruses that existed a billion years ago.
