What was Francis Bacon known for?
To the present day Bacon is well known for his treatises on empiricist natural philosophy (The Advancement of Learning, Novum Organum Scientiarum) and for his doctrine of the idols, which he put forward in his early writings, as well as for the idea of a modern research institute, which he described in Nova Atlantis.
Was Francis Bacon a Catholic?
Bacon was a devout Anglican. He believed that philosophy and the natural world must be studied inductively, but argued that we can only study arguments for the existence of God. Information on his attributes (such as nature, action, and purposes) can only come from special revelation.
Did Francis Bacon find a way to freeze meat?
Like any good empiricist, Bacon decided to run an experiment there and then. He purchased a chicken from a nearby vendor and proceeded to stuff the carcass with snow and ice, thereby preparing the first recorded frozen chicken in British history. Sadly, Bacon never completed the experiment.
