In your original post you said, quote: "THE SUN DOES NOT RISE, NOR DOES IT SET." In you latest you speak of the "apparent" rising and setting of the sun. Apparent means what appears (to us), and that is what is meant by phenomenological. You then talk about "scientific phenomena". Phenomena are by definition phenomenological. In fact, there are no "scientific phenomena". Phenomena are just that - what we perceive. Scientist try to explain and predict phenomena (and much that does not appear besides), and they often do so successfully. But that does not make the phenomena themselves "scientific", any more than it makes the Creator a scientist. Science (like Math) is a human creation. Feynman never made or supported these kinds of conceptual errors.
I do not believe in magic, but some scientists appear to do so.
