Intuition or axiom is the foundation of mathematics and physics, but has been until the first axiom of biology lacking in the science of biology. Darwin philosopher Daniel Dennett is fond of saying how wonderful is Darwin's "strange inversion of reasoning", and he is very proud of the anti-intuitive nonsense that randomness/errors/noises can create complex systems of great order. I would not advise anyone to be a philosopher without being a scientist first if his philosophy depends on scientific discovery. To base one's career on second hand knowledge is being reckless. Dennett is completely fooled by Darwin who not surprisingly is extremely poor with intuition and logic as shown by his difficulty with high school mathematics. Darwinism is based on the negation of intuition or 'strange inversion of intuition', a position no other great minds hold and no true science is based.
I recently found a few great quotes on intuition as listed below:
‘The only really valuable thing is intuition.’
‘Instinct leads, logic does but follow.’
‘It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.’
