LOGIC. WHY SHOULD WE STUDY LOGIC? PT 3. SEEING PEOPLE AND THINGS AS THEY REALLY ARE.

Development, Process, Pear, Think, Idea
















RELIGIOUS/SPIRITUAL FAITH.
MIRACULOUS EVENTS.
SUPERNATURAL BEINGS.
RELIGIOUS TEXTS ETC.

Are not considered to be Included in the Realm of THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD, (WHICH BY NECESSITY, INCLUDES THE RULES OF LOGIC), BECAUSE THE BELIEF IN THEIR TRUTH OR REALITY DOES NOT REQUIRE EVIDENCE, OR ANY KIND OF JUSTIFICATION THROUGH INTELLECTUAL INQUIRY.

If One Reads the CHRISTIAN BIBLE, THE TORAH, THE KORAN etc,, the Interpretation or Meaning is left to those who study the CONTENTS, IN THE CONTEXT OF HOW IT SHOULD BE APPLIED TO THEIR PARTICULAR FAITH.  SCIENCE, AND THE RULES OF LOGIC, DO NOT COME INTO THE DISCUSSION BECAUSE FAITH ALLOWS FOR CONTRADICTIONS, MIRACULOUS EVENTS, DIVINE INTERVENTION, AND OTHER CLAIMS, WHICH BY DEFINITION, DO NOT REQUIRE PROOF TO THOSE WHO ACCEPT THEIR REALITY.

IN OTHER WORDS:  IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ARGUE THAT SOMETHING EXISTS OR DOESN'T EXIST, OR , AN EVENT OCCURRED OR DIDN'T OCCUR, IF THE BELIEVER WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY EXPLANATION, PROOF, OR CONCLUSION THAT CONTRADICTS THEIR FAITH.  THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE:

THE NATURAL WORLD-  WHERE REALITY CAN BE EXAMINED, TESTED, STUDIED AND UNDERSTOOD BY THE HUMAN MIND.

THE SUPERNATURAL WORLD-  A HYPOTHETICAL REALM THAT EXISTS APART FROM THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE, AND IS NOT BOUND BY ITS LAWS.

THERE IS NO INHERENT PROBLEM IN BELIEVING THAT EACH CAN EXIST, IF YOU THEM SET APART, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THEY CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD PROPERLY, BY ATTEMPTING TO MEASURE THE EXISTENCE OF EACH BY PROPERTIES THAT CANNOT, BY DEFINITION, BE FOUND IN BOTH.

THE TRUE ENEMIES OF RELIGION AND SCIENCE, ARE THOSE WHO TRY TO FORCE THEIR "FAITH" ON OTHERS, BY CLAIMING THAT THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD "PROVES" THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM.

HOWEVER, IT WON'T WORK.  YOU CAN'T BEND, CHANGE, OR ALTER PHYSICAL LAWS TO ADAPT TO YOUR DESIRED CONCLUSION.  YOU MAKE YOURSELF SOUND DESPERATE, AND DESTROY THE VERY OF ESSENCE AND FOUNDATION OF "RELIGIOUS FAITH".
