The Law of Three Stages, is an idea created by Auguste Comte. Comte said that knowledge, over the course of history, has had three stages. The first stage is the "theological" stage, in which Comte says that people make up false beliefs. The second stage is the "metaphysical" stage, where people use philosophy to think about their beliefs. The last stage is the "scientific", where people prove what they believe.
