    I say you should do some more reading.
    Check out where each is used, and how.
    That may give you pointers.

    Unless...
    I understand now.
    Your post is itself an exercise in trial and error as opposed to logic.
    Very clever.

    Why not use both trial+error and logic?

    They both have their pro's and con's.

    I'd think you'd need logic to use trial and error.

    Yes - I think T+E without any logic would be chaos.

    I guess it comes down to how we interpret the OP's "instead wait for logic to develop".
    I took it to mean "wait until sufficient logic has been developed to work out the answer using logic alone".

    You are right RP just wanted to know whether many of the inventions will stand the test of time as they have been possible due to T+E example(light bulb). I guess those inventions which happen due to culmination of human reasoning to some point live longer than those made by T+E
