And still we spend a great deal of time on invisible things: some appealed to Dawkins (what the pure math of physics postulated) and others frustrated him (“fairies, ghosts, hobgoblins”).

Oh look, a conflation. You may have spokem too soon, Neodarwinian. As RD explains in The Magic of Reality, we can draw empirical conclusions
1. directly,
2. indirectly or
3. by showing a model is successful when tested.
It's clear physics passes that test whereas the other suggested tosh won't.
