... not obvious to everyone, but illustrations of it abound. For instance, a famous theory in the development of chemistry was that of phlogiston. Phlogiston, the "material" of fire, was- logically enough- thought to ... was released (or transferred to another substance). This concept made possible a great number of valid generalizations about chemical reactions, and predictions of new reactions that also turned out to work. The theory was "verified" by ... chemists in many experiments. Nevertheless, the theory is now universally regarded as wrong, in part because the hypothetical substance phlogiston would have negative weight, an attribute as close to utterly impossible as one can get. 90 Beyond Velikovsky ...

... life is perhaps THE most interdisciplinary question in the whole of science. Traditionally, it connects biology, geology, chemistry and physics, but I shall endeavour to show you today that it must encompass also subjects such as epidemiology, ... It is generally assumed that life first appeared on Earth perhaps 3.9 billion years ago as a result of chemical evolution producing complex structures from simple starting materials. However, the arguments to support this are largely speculation following a ... .
