How can a discovery think?
I have this at the beginning of a text:
As far as I know, 认为 means 'believe, think, consider, feel'
现代 sets the time to nowadays
科学 + 研究 followed by 的 is a compound adjective 'scientific research 的'
新 is also an adjective for 发现 = discovery
Adjectives and time words are unimportant words and may be left out, then I get: 发现认为，
How can a discovery 'think'? If they wrote 显明 I could understand, but not 认为。
As a Chinese person, do you find this use of 认为 unusual at all??
