 Pasteur, fermentation, contagion, and proving a negative
Louis Pasteur is one of the greatest names in the history of science and medicine, chiefly because of his establishment of the germ theory of disease and his conclusive demolition of the then-prevalent evolutionary concept of spontaneous generation.
A recurring theme in antievolution literature is that if science cannot account for the origin of life, evolution is false, and that "spontaneous generation" was disproven, so therefore evolution is false.
Science is bound, by the everlasting law of honour, to face fearlessly every problem which can fairly be presented to it.

 History of Biology
The Babylonians were quite knowledgeable in a number of areas of science: their knowledge of astronomy was very advanced by even 1500 BC or earlier.
Because modern science distinguishes between subjective and objective and teaches us that objective is “good” and subjective is “bad,” this creates for us an increasingly wide gulf between our perceptions of phenomena and the concepts by which we explain them.
Since then, science has “bent over backwards,” as it were, to insure objectivity and make sure it has nothing to do with religion, which many scientists reject as being too subjective.

 The Scientific Revolution
The medievals had inherited the science from Islam, for chemistry was never a separate discipline in Greek or Roman thought.
Experimental science, then, requires that all factors that have gone into the experience of the natural phenomenon be cataloged in some way.
The first electrical storage device was invented in 1745, the so-called "Leyden jar," and in 1749, Benjamin Franklin demonstrated that lightning was electricity by firing up a Leyden jar in a thunderstorm (this discovery led to the invention of the lightning rod).

The humbly-born François Quesnay trained himself in medicine, rising to become a physician in Louis XV's court and the leader of a sect of Enlightenment thinkers known as the Physiocrats or the économistes.
The working-class boy who could not read until he was 11 was eventually elected to the Academy of Sciences and hailed as the "Confucius of Europe", the "modern Socrates", by his gentlemen-disciples.
He was elected to the Academié des sciences in 1751 and fell in with the philosophes, who curiously sought out the little country surgeon who had so bravely challenged the great doctors.
