Eliezer, are you intentionaly ignoring my comment posted @ August 04, 2007 at10:58 PM ?
The earliest account I know of a scientific experiment is, ironically, the story of Elijah and the priests of Baal.
What do you mean by "I know of". Do you mean an account that you have evidence for? If yes, what evidence is that? Or do you mean the earliest recorded? Surely there were early ones recorded. Korach and the 250 men?
