The former became a super skilled engineer, having learnt to prove by experiment all the theories propounded by the ancient and modern physicists.
The latter propounded theories which none could disprove. His only proof was that, all that he said could be proved only beyond Life – an euphemism for Death. But if one were to wait, then after the point of reckoning (another euphemism for Death) there would be no redemption. Fear, utter Fear, drove the masses into the latter’s hands.
