Popper’s Paradox

July 26

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

(John 8:44) ESV

Scientific hypotheses must be falsifiable but the truth can’t be falsified, if it could it wouldn’t be true. Therefore popular science (SciPop) and truth are mutually exclusive.

Hypothesis 36

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

(Isaiah 5:20) NKJV

Occam’s razor used to crop up frequently in the discussion on Twitter as if the atheist science trolls (ASTs) were appealing to a deity. As such it’s listed as a major deity in the atheist pantheon.

God Encompasses Physics

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for

“‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’e

(Acts 17:24-28) ESV

When confronted with an accusation on Twitter our impulse (that’s me and the Holy Spirit, except, usually grieving the Holy Spirit) is to be snarky about the poster’s cognitive dissonance (a way to call them stupid).

Occam’s Razor

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

(Matthew 7:13-14) NKJV

Occam’s Razor is a problem-solving principle attributed to William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347), who was an English Franciscan friar and scholastic philosopher and theologian. The principle can be interpreted as stating:

The Mainstream Science Narrative of godless Existence

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.

What’s a Tarheel?

And the Lord said:
“Because this people draw near with their mouth
and honor me with their lips,
while their hearts are far from me,
and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,
therefore, behold, I will again
do wonderful things with this people,
with wonder upon wonder;
and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden.”

(Isaiah 29:13-14) NKJV

In the fall of 1990 we began the graduate program in Plant Biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. On our first day we were shown around Coker Hall by a senior graduate student, Victor Albert.

Occam’s Delusion

the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy thumbe up

Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

(Isaiah 29:14) KJV

We’ve demonstrated that Occam’s razor is a philosophical train wreck by comparing the assumptions necessary in heliocentric vs. geocentrospheric cosmologies and through the improbability of the origin of species by evolution.

The Wisdom of Their Wise Men Shall Perish

Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

( Isaiah 29:14 ) KJV

We are going to cause the wisdom of the SciPop wise men to perish. You probably think that SciPop has disproved hell. That’s why we’re going to disprove SciPop. It’s very simple really.
