That is still a lazy thinker's answer.
There's a reason I consider philosophy to be only marginally less pointless than theology. :)
Philosophy is OK when it comes to morality or ethics, but when it comes to physical reality no philosopher has ever known enough to know what they were talking about, and so should steer clear of it. Unfortunately, they haven't.
Natural philosophy = modern science. The scientists just don't want to be as kooky as Newton anymore.
Natural philosophy is the pre-scientific attempt to combine nature and spirit. It does not equate to modern science.
So you invented the reflecting telescope, analyzed light into the rainbow, invented calculus before Leibniz, developed celestial mechanics into a true science, discovered the universal law of gravitation, and were master of the mint? But Newton was also an alchemist and a Revelations interpreter. So for you only a pure atheist like Feynman is a real scientist?
Newton was one of the transitioners of natural science to modern science. He made great strides, but also had pre-scientific ideas.
We are 1000 years in the past (of 1000 years from now) ... we are hopelessly primitive to. With Progress (tm) we will have even smarter phones in the future.
Your statement means "today". Feel free to engage in primitive beliefs. I do not.
So get the bone out of your own nose, before you get it out of mine (Jesus).

You need to identify the bone. Only then can we discuss it. And I'll bet the only response you can manage is a non-sequitor.
