What can a man without even primary education, contribute to the field of Science?” Our answer to this question may be “No! Nothing”
The problem with learning by experience is that you spend most of your life discovering stuff that other people already knew, which leaves little time to discover anything not already known. Some scientific knowledge was acquired at considerable risk to life and limb: I'd prefer to read about the toxicity of alpha radiation, or the terminal speed of a falling person, rather than kill myself finding out.
