Just throwing this out here, but if your worldview causes you to say something like:
|How is it that theists of diverse creed (present company excluded) and atheists can agree on this?|
Because they hold the same religious views about god, regardless of whether they are theists or atheists.
Maybe you should step back, have a beer, and think things over.
This from a Hunter thread, where he starts with quoting Popper via Scientific American (for a PhD, he loves him the pop literature), flies in the face of Popper, into an attack on methodological naturalism of sorts:
|“so what’s your alternative?” it is implicit that god must not be the answer. That answer is dismissed out of hand, for it has long since been falsified|
Denies having said this, admits having said this, then decides:
|"There's nothing wrong with MN, in biology or any other area of science"|
We get into an argument about Cornelius' claim that saying god is a falsified hypothesis of evolution is identical to saying god is a non-falsifiable hypothesis not considered by science, to which he replies:
"I said "distinction without a difference," not "identical.""
WTF does that mean?
I swear, Cornelius has invented an opposite-day philosophy where science=religion, theism=naturalism (but MN is fine), atheism~theism. It's quite challenging to argue with him....
