Philosophy – what does that have to do with science?

Philosophy – (“the love of wisdom”) has everything to do with science.  It is all about mind, reason, and knowledge.  Science would be impossible without philosophy because Philosophy includes the Laws of Logic.

Science is the observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of natural phenomena.  To perform science there has to be some ground rules or “laws”, right?

Below are four (4) “laws of nature” that can be found in Philosophy.  These are called “Laws of Logic”.

  1. Law of Non Contradiction – something cannot be and not be at the same time and in the same relationship. 
  2. Law of Causality (Cause and Effect) – every event has an adequate (big enough) cause.  
  3. Law of Uniformity – the present is the key to the past and future. 
  4. Law if Identity– if something is “A” then it has all of the properties of “A”-ness.

Without these laws, there is no laws of science.  These Laws provide us the foundational understanding of the universe so that we can provide a theoretical explanation on our experimental investigation.  Interestingly, these Laws of Logic cannot be tested in the laboratory!

A side note about Philosophy.  We each have a personal philosophy, if you will.  Something called a “Worldview”.  Our worldview consist of our values, morals, beliefs and GodView and comes from our answers to the 5 questions.   It is our worldview that muddies up our examination and interpretation of science.  Can you set aside your worldview and examine the theory of evolution based on real science rather than pseudo science?

This website shows:  there is more religion than science involved in the Theory of Evolution.  How do I know this?  Because the fact is that the Theory of Evolution violates many Laws of Science.
