Darron S, Unfalsifiable Postulates are Dubious – You seem to have dazzled heads a liltte with your wit when you suggested that the scientific method cannot allow for an intelligence to be used as an explanation because the postulate of God is incapable of being falsified, and unfortunately, according the a hard-line scientific method: “any presupposition used in a scientific theory must be falsifiable (testably disprovable).” It seems that on this basis you have come to believe that the postulate of a creator God must be deemed, in your own words, “not good science.” (see comment #4). Your Can’t Prove Science Guilty of Faith – You believe this method is to be contrasted with “faith” in something which is not falsifiable. By following these principles, you seem to enjoy thinking of yourself as unbiasly faithless in your approach to your worldview, whereas we Christians are gambling with our faith. Whereas we believe in things uncertain (by the scientific method as you understand it), you yourself only hold to “presuppositions … based on observable, repeatable, and testable evidence.” From this platform you make your challenges to us “find something in any accepted natural scientific theory … that we take on faith as opposed to evidence.” This is quite an impressive use of words. Invisible Marhons on the Dark Side of the Moon Argument – You also say that it’s not the burden of science to disprove negatives so the burden of proof rests on the one making the positive claim for the existence of something. And we all agree that it would be a waste of time to send the brilliance of scientists on a goose chase to disprove invisible marshons on the dark side of the moon. So then, it seems (to you) that if we agree to that, we should also agree that it’s just as silly to expect science to disprove God. This way science can proceed without necessarily being able to disprove God, and no more loose it’s philosophical/intellectual credibility than someone who dismisses the idea of invisible marshons on the dark side of the moon who eat invisible green eggs and ham (yes … I realize if it were invisible it couldn’t be “green”). Again, very impressive argument.Bradley Cochran's last blog post..
