As will now be shown, this approach has created far more problems than it has solved. The first untidy knot arises with the notion of "continuity", as utilized in the mathematics that Sir Isaac Newton elaborated in order to formulate his famous Three Laws of Motion. On the front of the scientific work undertaken to investigate and determine laws of motion, his work stands at the watershed. His elaboration of the general laws of motion of all matter was a huge advance over the incoherent and conflicting notions that previously prevailed.

Ibn Haitham didn't read Aristotle's work to believe in it. He read the theory, used the criterion on truth and falsehood and was able to decipher true elements from the volumes of work. Einstein didn't dare use the same logic about Maxwell's "laws" or he didn't have the criterion that Ibn Haitham was equipped with. Einstein was not a Christian, but he certainly was a believer of Eurocentric philosophy. This fundamental inability to discern truth from falsehood (called Furqan in Arabic), is missing from European new science or social science.

However, it is their intangible roles that are decisive in mediating our ability as humans to make use of knowledge of the truth for socially positive ends and humanize the environment, natural or social. These are the activities that secure humanity's long term. No human social problem is without some human social solution. Whoever would increase knowledge is bound to disturb the status quo, but even so, a person must increase his/her knowledge of the truth. The essence of human social agency lies on the path of pursuing knowledge.
