Materialist philosopher Joseph Carter denies the existence of teleology in nature, but he is mistaken.
There is much to agree with in Yale University clinical neurologist Steven Novella’s recent article on the p-value.
As I noted yesterday, Joseph Carter wrote a fatuous essay in which he denies purpose in the universe and does an amusing dance around the implications that follow.
The human mind, unlike the human brain, is an immaterial entity, thus unrealizable by a material artifact like a computer.
Carroll, a cosmologist and physicist specializing in general relativity and cosmology at Caltech, is highly regarded by the New Atheist community.
Materialism is an impoverished perspective on nature, and it creates, rather than solves, problems in metaphysics and science.
Writing here yesterday, I pointed out the problems with materialist metaphysics.
Materialism isn’t really a metaphysical theory. It’s just a mistake. It’s a woefully inadequate understanding of nature.
This odious stuff never ends.
This case is a matter of tremendous importance.
