Why Philosophy is important,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Naturalism Defeated?: Essays on Plantinga's Evolutionary Argument against Naturalism (Paperback)
So many Scientists now a days, and so much positivism and bad philosophy to go along with it.
So much Lack of philosophical thinking, to go along with materialism. As Bad philosophy = Bad scientific interpretation
So much emphasis on the verification principle, which begs the question how can one use the verification principle on the verification principle?
Well the new age scientists who are naturalists seem to come in with a biased naturalistic mindset of "The Supernatural cannot exist, because the supernatural can't exist" circular reasoning. So now it's time for the real "free-thinkers" to bail us out.
Evolutionary Naturalism asserts brain adaptation for "Survival" not "truth" so this really opens the doors to anyone who has an open-mind.
How can we trust our cognitive faculties? What's the secret the ingredient that gives us a sure way of trusting our reason, when reasoning came from reasonless matter?
Plantinga lays down a beauty and puts forth a great argument against Evolutionary Naturalism
