Well, for one thing, two of the Three Laws of Motion are counterfactual. Indeed, the First Law can't even in principle be verified. They're presuppositions of the system that cannot be demonstrated, but need to be taken on faith if Newtonian mechanics is going to get anywhere. Same thing goes for the assertion of the existence of absolute motion and space. ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com
