First of all, there is no such thing as the scientific method.
If you are referring to hypothetico-deductive reasoning, that was invented by William Whewell, who is the same guy who decided upon the word “scientist.”
Additionally, I should like to point out that Einstein came up with his theory of relativity by imagining himself riding on a beam of light. This is not part and parcel of the so-called “scientific” method. In fact, it’s not empirical at all. Yet you choose to give science the credit. Why is that?
