Rise of Science

             A BRIEF HISTORY OF RELIGION "vs." SCIENCE:   For nearly two centuries, "Science" has been the stick with which to beat Christians and other believers in God over the head.  Science, however, emerged at the end of 1000 years of a Biblically-soaked western European culture, and in no other time or place.  That was no accident.  Science is the Way of the Cross for the intellect.  We give up our right to be right and let the truth and the Lord of truth speak for themselves.   Read more...

            The Science Library is logically tied to the   Epistemology Library because science (from the Latin 'scio' = 'I know'), is about how to find out the truth about a given area (physics, chemistry, history, logic, mathematics, theology, etc.).  Science (as understood and practiced in Western culture) is an intellectual and moral discipline for finding the truth. 

 

          Miscellaneous --

          ** Personality, Empiricism, & God -- on the metaphysical (Biblical) foundations of empirical science. 

            ** Definition of 'Science'  --  the underlying issue of the Intelligent Design debate -- & without which there can be no resolution.  (See below.)

** What is Philosophy?    E. Fox

** A letter to the editor of First Things on God and science

** Open Letter - Earle Fox to David Satcher, MD, Ph. D.  on his "Call to Action on Sexual Health: Science & Belief -- Seeking Common Ground"  --  Conference in DC, May 24, 2004

** OpEd to the Washington Post - "Religion vs. Science"  -- E. Fox

Kurt Goedel was a brilliant mathematician who is alleged to have proved that mathematics is incomplete, that, for example, it cannot be proved that 2 + 2 = 4.  Mathematicians have, I believe, generally accepted that conclusion -- which cuts the bottom right out from under the certainty of most of what we call science.  But science goes on anyhow because it appears to work so well.  Go here to read Goedel's mathematical version of the Ontological Argument for God.  Be ready for some heavy stuff.  You will be led to further links for completing parts of the article. 
        This has serious implications for science as a whole and its relation to theology, etc.  For more on science and theology, visit Personality, Empiricism, & God (PEG) as it takes shape on the Road to Emmaus.   PEG will be dealing with this uncertainty in coming chapters.  Possibly -- then answer for the gap of evidence for 2 + 2 = 4 lies in metaphysics or even theology??? 

World in Process --  Book review on Process Theology -- commentary by E. Fox 

"Hardwired to Connect - the New Scientific Case for Authoritative communities..."  A MUST READ. Possibly relevant also to the Intelligent Design movement.  Now available from Emmaus Ministries.  Get your copy for $7 postpaid. 

US Infectious Disease Policy Based on the Wrong Germ Theory --  Carolyn Dean, MD, and Elissa Meininger  --   on the potential for disaster if we concentrate on remedial rather than preventative measures.  

Science, Crowbars, & Bats -- Chuck Colson --  on science vs. scientism.

Pathological Science -- Yes, we have invented pathological science (global warming) -- any science where truth-seeking is not the first order of business.  Which, of course, is then no science at all.              

More Pathological Science (or History) -- on the history of the early scientists and the myths which still surround them fabricating a false opposition between science and Christianity. 

Has Science come to a Dead End?  Some are saying so.  I hardly think so.  But I do think that secularized science might be doing so.  It rejected metaphysics, to its own shame and demise.    E. Fox. 

What is Truth? and How do we Know It? <-Audio.  The Vital Question facing Judeo-Christians today.  Sermon  Printed Version Sept. 11, 2011.

Common Sense Science

** Common Sense Science (CSS) joins with PEG...  A commentary on the disaster which secularized science has created for itself.   E. Fox with two CSS authors. 

Truth-seeking before Position-defending --

     ** Putting Truth ahead of God ---   Heresy???   Not according to God. 

     ** Truth-Seeking before Position-Defending -  Only truth sets us free.  

Common Sense Science - Is Science not already common sense???  a striking New (really the Old) Way of Looking at the Universe -- from Common Sense.   This view Reverses many of the anomalies of Einstein's Relativity Theory and much of Quantum Physics - back to Common Sense.. 
        Prediction: this new understanding of science will change our future dramatically, and be found quite compatible with the Biblical view of Reality.   So far it looks good....  Stay tuned.
 E. Fox   

Common Sense Science -- an astonishing article by David Bergman ("Conflict of Atomism and Creation Science in History" pdf file) on how secular science is intellectually collapsing (and has been for half a century), and how the Biblical worldview is totally compatible with real science.  
     This has been my message for 40 years -- that the science is inherently and inevitably Biblical.  It arose out of the Biblical mindset, focusing on the world of time and space, not on the Hellenic world of Ideas and Abstractions.  And, yes, it was greatly aided by the Hellenic gift for abstract thinking.  But the abstract nature of its worldview prevented science from being developed by the Greeks or Romans.  The Greek-developed tools of the intellect work much better in the Biblical worldview than in the Hellenic worldview.

Fraudulent Science - lecture by Michael Crichton - "Aliens Cause Global Warming...."

Pathological Science -- Yes, we have invented pathological science, not limited to "global warming" -- any science where truth-seeking is not the first order of business -- which, of course, is then no science at all. 

Global Warming (again...)  --  2 good articles on the honest science of the matter. 

The Epicycles of Global Warming --  James Lewis in American Thinker.  "When True Believers begin to harbor doubts, they don't immediately give up the faith. It's too scary; too much pride and money has been invested; too many jobs and reputations are on the line; and they need to find a new reason to live. So they always try to add on new wrinkles and qualifications to their crumbling story. Today that's happening with the global warming cult."

Former Dire Predictions -- global cooling, end of oil, gas, gold, food, etc., etc. 

Polar bears NOT endangered -- more junk science elucidated for your entertainment.  

31,000 Scientists reject Global Warming --  "Mr. Gore's movie has claims no informed expert endorses."  It looks like the GW "event" is turning out to be the Global Scam of the Millennium. 

The Question of Global Warming - by Freeman Dyson.   Wow!  quite a new approach, with some totally new (to me at least) science.  Well worth the read....   E. Fox

Carbon Chastity -- by Charles Krauthammer --  More on the absurdity of the Global Warming speculations. 

A Global Warming Primer -- National Center for Policy Analysis -- This is an analysis of Global Warming.  You will gain a real understanding of how much we do not know about it, how much we will spend to improve it, and how little it would improve.  Eye-opening!  

Global Warming - another nail in its coffin.   

Global Warming --   A pdf file on some good science. 

'Pears that Global Warming is, well, like... OVER.....  

Global Warming, Science, & Government -- Frank Tipler --   We had better get the relation between science & government right.  Or global warming and similar issues will never be gotten right.   E. Fox 

CO2 &  Your Health -- CO2 a Necessity...

Government control of Global Warming Science (via "monopsony") -  is badly distorting the results.  Government-control of just about anything distorts it.  The role of government is to be the referee for the public, NOT a player in the game, which always turns out dishonest and ugly.   

The REAL Copenhagen Global Climate Conference -- a group of honest scientists are gathering at Copenhagen December 8-9 to give the lie to the travesty of science which has blown wide open with the exposure of corruption at the UK East Anglia University center for climate information, a main pillar of the Global Warming agenda..  The official Copenhagen conference will run from December 7-18.  Keep tuned.  The East Anglia debacle may go a long way towards pulling support from the Global Warming Scam.  The evidence will not matter to the perpetrators of the potential disaster, but there may be enough honest folks there who will catch on and sound the alarm.    E. Fox

Christianity & the Rise of Science -- a super UK website on this subject, e.g., on the role of Galileo, religion, & the Inquisition.  The evidence has been known for many decades, but our "dedicated" secular media has not wanted us to know the truth.  Truth will out.  See also the Science Library

The Dawkins Confusion --  In Christianity Today, Alvin Plantinga takes on Richard Dawkins -- two well-known and very capable philosopher/scientists types who disagree completely on the "God" question.    
       This is an super assessment of Dawkins' passion against God, and of some issues involved in the Intelligent Design vs. Evolution debate. 
        I am in the midst of revising my doctoral thesis at Oxford granted 43 years ago, on the relation between science & theology, in which I show (I think) that science, as a logical fact, could not have arisen in any but a Biblical culture.  Personality, Empiricism, & God is relevant to all the contention between Evolution and Intelligent Design, and will, I think, help clarify many of the metaphysical issues.       E. Fox   

Shroud of Turin - was it projected as a quantum hologram as Jesus' body was resurrected?   What does the science tell us?
