“Flooded with the light of life”: What a beautiful way of putting it. This creates a double dilemma for materialists.
The dual wave and particulate aspects of light, essential to our ability to see, and so much else, must all be just right to within insanely precise parameters.
Either a mind through free will alone may cause scientifically measurable change in the physical world, or we are forced back to embrace blather.
Granted, scientism can aid and abet evil. Its tendency to do so is predictable. In its blindness it harms and humiliates.
Oh, it’s very difficult to concede that you were mistaken about something. Especially, I would say, for males.
