Hypothesis and Fact

September 26, 2016

C. S. Lewis puts the following words in the mouth of Mr. Enlightenment:

Hypothesis, my dear young friend, establishes itself by a cumulative process: or, to use popular language, if you make the same guess often enough it ceases to be a guess and becomes a Scientific Fact.

–C. S. Lewis, The Pilgrim’s Regress (p. 23)
