When the idea of intuition is corrupted by conglomerate qualities of crap, intuition is quite dead, if it ever was. I’m not sure how a human could ever hope to possess such a thing, only believe that what now is felt and/or sensed is informed intuition, which is a contradiction. There might be something to it. But intuition? Memory burns it to bits.
A scientific theory is built upon facts. The theory is there for scientists to accept as a model going forward, or reject through contravening evidence. But the theory holds sway.
I have observed a reluctance on the part of scientists and fans of science to acknowledge the neither-proved-nor-disproved nature of scientific theory for the wiggle room it affords hordes of half-baked ideas not founded upon ground as solid as empiricism. But while they don’t cede the ground of the unknown to misuse, they submit the known to abuse.
