THE MYSTERIOUS WORLD. HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE? #4.

Library, Books, Education, Literature
As we Analyze the DISCIPLINES OF LOGIC, AND THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD, ONE THING BECOMES PERFECTLY CLEAR:

That when used properly, THE TWO ARE SO SIMILAR AS TO MAKE THEM ALMOST INTERCHANGEABLE.  AT NO TIME CAN WE SAY THAT THE RULES OF ONE STANDS IN CONTRADICTION TO THE OTHER. The Ultimate Goal of each is to find "TRUTH", either as an "ABSOLUTE" which cannot be Reasonably Denied, OR THE Most "PROBABLE" According to the Information given.

As we have seen throughout World History, understanding the UNIVERSE AND THE NATURAL WORLD BECAME EASIER, AND MUCH MORE BENEFICIAL FOR MANKIND, AS THE PROCESS CALLED THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD REPLACED SYSTEMS BASED ON SUPERNATURAL BELIEFS. NO LONGER DID MAN JUST ACCEPT HIS FATE, COUNTING ON FAITH AND DOGMATIC ACCEPTANCE TO EXPLAIN THE JOYS AND MISERIES THAT WERE INFLICTED UPON HIM BY A MYSTERIOUS AND UNKNOWABLE UNIVERSE.

THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD became the TOOL THAT ALLOWED HUMANITY TO NOT ONLY UNDERSTAND THE NATURAL WORLD, BUT ALSO TO ANTICIPATE, CONTROL, AND CULTIVATE CERTAIN SUBSTANCES AND SPECIFIC PHENOMENA FOUND IN NATURE TO THE BENEFIT OF ALL. For this to happen, Two things had to occur:

1)  Convincing Ecclesiastic Authorities that CONCEPTS OF GOD, AND THE SPIRITUAL WORLD, WERE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE FROM FORMING AND CREATING SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES.  YOU COULD HAVE FAITH, DEVOTION, AND OBEDIENCE TO THE DEITY AND SCRIPTURE OF YOUR CHOICE, WITHOUT ABANDONING INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT, AND RATIONAL INQUIRY. 

2)  THAT SCIENCE, ITS METHODOLOGY, RULES, AND GOALS MUST HAVE UNIQUE AND UNALTERABLE RULES THAT WOULD MAKE UP THE FOUNDATION AND CORE OF THIS NEW DISCIPLINE.

ENTER LOGIC, AND ITS LAWS.
