You say a lot here, and you line of argumentation is not vey clear to me. Can
you be more stepswise please?
Please consider that bones are necessary for striped (*i don't know

muscle-tissue to function.
A man conducting a gee-whizz science show with fifty thousand dollars' worth of
Frankenstein equipment is not doing anything scientific if he knows beforehand
what the results of his efforts are going to be. A motorcycle mechanic, on the
other hand, who honks the horn to see if the battery works is informally
conducting a true scientific experiment.
