O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.(1 Timothy 6:20-21) NKJV
For centuries the scientific mainstream has been building a narrative of godless existence (SciPop). The purpose of SciPop is to account for human existence in a way that requires no supernatural cause.
Mainstream science (SciPop) is an attempt to rationalize human existence in such a way that no supernatural cause is required. Unfortunately the universe has a supernatural cause, so the first step in the SciPop reasoning process is to A priori reject the truth out of hand as either a premise or a possible conclusion (Popper’s paradox).
It makes use of induction (inductive reasoning) where a premise is used to supply evidence for its own conclusion.– Mainstream Science (SciPop), definition
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Since the universe has a supernatural cause this means that the first step in the SciPop train of reasoning is the rejection of truth. The truth has no place in SciPop and this is by design, not by accident. It’s not a problem though because the SciPop investigative process is inductive, meaning that whatever you want to believe is how you interpret whatever evidence you’ve got.
The popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop) is an internally self-supporting network of inductive, reductive circular reasoning based on the premise that the origin of the universe, and thus humanity, has no supernatural cause. It’s existence is entirely the responsibility of peer review.– The Popular Science Narrative of godless Existence (SciPop)
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
The scientific method has been crafted to support this goal. It’s designed for the express purpose of making sure that you NEVER find the truth, not even by accident. This is enshrined by defining a “scientific hypothesis” as something which has to be predictive, testable and falsifiable. The truth can’t falsified, and frequently can’t be tested, therefore truth lies outside the realm of SciPop. SciPop and truth are mutually exclusive.
However, sometimes the truth is simply unavoidable. In these cases it’s incorporated into the SciPop narrative of godless existence wrapped up in a fog of technicality and half truth.
The Scientific Method
- The Truth:
- God is a Spirit.
- The Scientific Method:
- The Truth is neither testable nor falsifiable,
- therefore it’s unscientific and must be rejected.
- According to the rules of the scientific method:
- popular science (SciPop) and the truth are mutually exclusive.
