How Do We Explain The Laws of Logic?

thinking 33

The whole scientific enterprise is based on certain assumptions which cannot be proved scientifically, but which are guaranteed by the Christian world view; for example: the laws of logic, the orderly nature of the external world, the reliability of our cognitive faculties in knowing the world, and the objectivity of the moral values used in science. I want to emphasize that science could not even exist without these assumptions, and yet these assumptions cannot be proved scientifically. They are philosophical assumptions which, interestingly, are part and parcel of a Christian world view. Thus, religion is relevant to science in that it can furnish a conceptual framework in which science can exist. More than that, the Christian religion historically did furnish the conceptual framework in which modern science was born and nurtured.

How Do We Explain Math?

In the atheist’s paradigm, only mutability or inconsistency exists. Anything that is immutable or consistent, such as a fixed point of reference, is incoherent in such a template… Since there is no opportunity for the existence of the attribute of immutability in an atheistic world, it then follows that that which is immutable by nature… cannot exist in the atheistic model…

Math, like God, has the attribute of immutability. It is unchanging. Therefore, it can be relied upon. It is the means by which proper thinking, science, and economics (amongst many other disciplines) may be accomplished. However, by virtue of its complete absence of immutability, atheism by default renders its view of reality and math as mutually exclusive. In other words, just as atheism and God are mutually exclusive, the atheistic paradigm and math also both cannot occur at the same time due to the essence of their opposite natures.

The Bible teaches us that there are no atheists. Every person knows that God exists (Romans 1:18-32) because every person is an image bearer of God (Genesis 1:26-27). Not only does the “atheist” know that God exists, but the “atheist” also knows that math exists. The “atheist,” true to his/her chaotic and incoherent worldview, attempts to have the mutually exclusive coexist. The “atheist” attempts to embrace math while denying its attribute of immutability.

You See What You Want To See

Science is a mirror in which you see what you
want to see reflected back. The Nazis used science
to justify racial genocide. Liberals use to justify . . .
“let’s hug the world”. But both of them reflect the
cultural prejudices of the people who are looking
into the mirror of science.
