Retrodictions, canto 1, quatrain 9

Not faith, nor pride, nor fear, nor shame,
nor doctrines work Her wonders out;
by guess, by test, by proof, by claim;
the philosophic Way of Doubt.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
He is both faithless and a nature-worshipper.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about the scientific method.
