Only a little history. Tells you which gang of cosmologists had
Wolfram's ear back in the days of the 50 versus 100 turf wars.

The axiomatic method of mathematics is one of the great achievements of
our culture. However, it is only a method. Whereas the facts of
mathematics once discovered will never change, the method by which these
facts are verified has changed many times in the past, and it would be
foolhardy to expect that changes will not occur again at some future
date. - Gian-Carlo Rota
