Often times people assume that I reject science–that I’m anti-scientific. When people aren’t making this assumption, they often assume that I believe in science. The truth is, I do not reject science, but I don’t believe in it either. I believe that accepting science as your primary worldview is a mistake, and denying that science is a useful practice that helps describe our world is equally mistaken.
So, do we really believe that our thoughts are the result of neurons firing in our brains? Do we really believe that we are but a collection of cells? Do we really believe that the world we live in is composed of atoms? Do we really only believe in things we can see and touch?
Is it really that awful to believe in something else, something we can’t see or touch? Or are we still asleep, enjoying our dogmatic slumber?
