"It is better to solve one problem five different ways, than to solve
five problems one way. "

I strongly doubt this... there is nothing more productive in science than to find one solution which solves five different problems.

Anyone can claim to do science. Math is the proof it is done correctly.

“Physics is to math what sex is to masturbation.”
            Richard Feynman
“Why nature is mathematical is, again, a mystery.”
            Richard Feynman

     a)  Let to take physics as a stone.
Then only making sex with math it is possible to create the beautiful
living planet  Earth.
    b) Let to take math as an idea.
Then pure math for pure math is an abstract image - masturbation.
Only married with physics they both can create the paradise planet Earth.

And if somebody cannot happily live on this  paradise  planet Earth -
- then it is his/her own problem.

   a) where does stone come from ?
   b) where does idea come from?
My answer:
They both come from an infinite void, from an emptiness, from a nothingness,
from the  zero vacuum continuum : T=0K.
