Shabby philosophy in a white lab coat

Rick-SantorumMainstream modern science, with its analytical methods and its ‘objective’ teachings, is the dominant force in modern culture. If science simply discovered and taught the truth about reality, who could object? But mainstream science does not simply ‘discover the truth’; instead it relies in part on a set of unscientific, false philosophical presuppositions as the basis for many of its conclusions. Thus, crucial aspects of what modern science teaches us are simply shabby philosophy dressed up in a white lab coat.
