    "Physicalistic" is a manufactured word which, in my opinion, doesn't mean anything at all.

    Funny... I would agree if I had not found the meaning. Based on the definition of physicalism, I personally believe it has something to do with atheism.
    Only what is physical can be proved using laws created by man.

    Yes, it's a theory advanced and a word coined in 1931. Fairly recent.
