Scientists think they know everything.

Atechnogenesis[1] is the secular scientific explanation that life on Cybertron sprang up through the naturally-occurring interaction of gears, levers, and pulleys.[2]

The strict scientific rationalism of atechnogenesis rejects traditional religious claims that Primus is the source of all life on Cybertron, and much of the ancient doctrine surrounding the Matrix.
