Here, I conclude a conversation with Dr. John West about Lewis’s prophetic warnings to us about science and scientism.
Ascribing sentience or cosmic purpose to forces or the particles on which they act is to step out of the realm of science into the realm of myth-making.
As an illustration, John West discusses the COVID pandemic and how that recent public health crisis revealed much of what Lewis warns against.
Lewis died on this day, November 22, sixty year ago in 1963. He frequently examined the impact of modern science on human life.
Rather than refute Harris by pointing out why his statement scores high on the irony meter, I thought I’d ask ChatGPT to do it for me.
