Resistance to Science? Faith In Philosophical Materialism?
A recent article entitled "Why Do Some People Resist Science?" got a lot of comment in the blogosphere recently.
This post about it and many of the comments are worth a read.
I note one comment in particular:
They are playing with a very sharp sword that cuts both ways.
Using the other side of that sword, I have commented previously about possible reasons why people put so much faith in philosophical materialism that they refuse to follow the scientific evidence wherever it leads: here and here and here, and with an overview on worldviews here.
