Immaterial Aspects of Thought by James Ross

Immaterial Aspects of Thought by James Ross
http://www3.nd.edu/~afreddos/courses/43151/ross-immateriality.pdf
ANIMAL cognition and desire, from the appetite of a clam to the optical systems of vultures and frigate birds, is supposed to have neurobiological explanations resultant from, if not reducible to, universal laws of physics. That is a minimal and modest project for epistemology naturalized, one to be assisted by specialized sciences.
There is a larger and bolder project of epistemology naturalized, namely, to explain human thought in terms available to physical science, particularly the aspects of thought that carry truth values, and have formal features, like validity or mathematical form. That project seems to have hit a stone wall, a difficulty so grave that philosophers dismiss the underlying argument, or adopt a cavalier certainty that our judgments only simulate certain pure forms and never are real cases of, e.g., conjunction, modus ponens, adding, or genuine validity. The difficulty is that, in principle, such truth-carrying thoughts2 cannot be wholly physical (though they might have a physical medium),3 because they have features that no physical thing or process can have at all.

Blowing the whistle: But, Emperor Evolutionary Materialist Scientism (by being self-falsifying) is parading around naked . . .

http://www.uncommondescent.com/atheism/blowing-the-whistle-but-emperor-evolutionary-materialist-scientism-by-being-self-falsifying-is-parading-around-naked

1] Truth does not exist (Is that a true statement?)

2] Nothing is absolute (Is that absolutely true?)

3] I do not exist (You must exist to deny that you exist)

4] Science is the only way to know (Can you scientifically prove that?)

5] Only what can be perceived by the five senses exists (Can you prove that by the five senses?)

6] Nobody can know anything for sure (Do you know that for sure?)

7] Nobody can know anything about God (How do you know that?)

8] Talk about God is meaningless (Since it is a statement about God, this statement is meaningless too)

9] Reality is just your interpretation, objective reality does not exist (That’s just your interpretation)

10] “‘Everything we think and do is the function of our genes/nervous system’”: Is this belief itself just the result of genetic/neutral activity? If so, why trust it — or any belief we have? If your belief happens to be right, it’s just by accident” [2]

11] There are no beliefs (You expect me to believe that?) [3]

12] Everything is meaningless (So is that statement)

Pseudogenes Shrink Gaps for Theistic Darwinian Evolutionists Collins & Giberson

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin discusses how theistic Darwinian evolutionists Francis Collins and Karl Giberson rely on the argument that pseudogenes are junk, "broken DNA." The pseudogene is their centerpiece evidence for common descent and macroevolution in their new book, The Language of Science and Faith. This leaves them hard-pressed as we learn more about biology, genetics and biochemistry, finding function for non-coding DNA, including pseudogenes.

To Build a Worm: Where Undirected Evolution Runs into Severe Difficulties

To Build a Worm: Where Undirected Evolution Runs into Severe Difficulties by Paul Nelson at evolutionnews.org
...if we want to explain the origin of the adult form of C. elegans, we need first to explain the origin of the developmental pathway that constructs the worm. And this is where undirected evolution runs into severe difficulties.

UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS - THE BEST AVAILABLE EVIDENCE

UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS BRIEFING DOCUMENT THE BEST AVAILABLE EVIDENCE by DON BERLINER with Marie Galbraith Antonio Huneeus Presented by CUFONS, FUFOR, MUFON December 1995

Everything You Believe Is Based on Personal Experience and Testimony

Everything You Believe Is Based on Personal Experience and Testimony
...when anyone says that testimony and personal experience are dismissible forms of evidence, they are obviously using (consciously or not) selective (and logically incoherent) hyperskepticism against an unwanted idea, because everything any of us believe or call ‘knowledge” is gained/extrapolated (hopefully using logic and logical arguments) via personal experience and/or information gained via testimony.

The Little Bird that Could

The Little Bird that Could
Hundreds of miles out to sea in a storm, exhausted birds would sometimes land en masse on ships for refuge. Sailors must have wondered at the sight; where did these little birds come from? And what are they doing out here? Did the wind carry them away from the safety of the land? A team of scientists decided to find out.

Lee Strobel is a journalist who's research into the authenticity of the Gospels transformed his life. He started out as an atheist skeptic but when he used his credentials as a reporter to get access to the worlds leading historians, the results of his research made a believer out of him.


The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel from Slaves4Christ on Vimeo.
"... [believing] began a transformational process for me where over time my philosophy and my attitudes, relationships, parenting, world-view, all of that began to change over time for good. Really for good."
"When Lee became a Christian his whole life started to change to the extent that our five year old daughter who also saw those changes went to her Sunday school teacher and told her that she wanted Jesus to do in her life what He had done in her Daddy's life."
