    So be it. I rest my case; your reply is consistent with Eagleman's and scores of others who fall under the umbrella of theological Materialism as a religious [value] construct, all of which are...

    Okay, but I think you're deceiving yourself in your assumption that methodological naturalism "deals only with the science of our physical existence." We are not beings who can switch off our...

    One thing about mental-brain associations. I've tried (and failed) to express here and other places my metaphysical hypothesis of a value-endued reality (value mechanics) and won't get into it here,...

    Yes, you state your beliefs from time to time Shunyadragon, but your arguments continually mirror those of atheist materialists. If you waddle and quack like a duck, you have to know you're going to...

    I've been remodeling my basement and listening to Tom Campbell vids lately, if I understand him correctly he feels he has a legitimate scientific approach concluding that consciousness is not a...

    Actually there are a handful of others--none on this board obviously--who've taken the time to figure out what I'm saying without insisting on dumbing the ideas down. They are among the...

    Simplified: Yes, your and my approach to what truth is is completely different. I understand that you and those who share your worldview will robustly reject my interpretation of truth. You don't...

    Methodological naturalism is just the epistemic version of what you call materialism. I see no fundamental difference between the two. Maybe I'm just too unlearned and ignorant to see the...

    I believe that all human beings regardless of religious persuasion (including none) have, by benefit of design, varying abilities to apprehend moral/ethical norms.

    It occurs to me an addendum might be beneficial to some readers of the thread. That writing is best when simple, unencumbered ideas and concepts are used is a true general rule in comparison with...

    I used the term 'scientific laws' last post, should have been 'non-contact forces'. I assume you aren't really reading my posts or you're skipping the issue...I pointed out why it's irrelevant to...

    Sorry, I'm not sharp enough nor do I have the time to reduce to simplicity. I agree that simplicity is better, just have enough trouble working out the stuff. I understand your lack of interest. ...

    Agency exists in a state of restrained freedom as I see it. The upshot of the value mechanism is its capacity to demonstrate that rather than the common take on free will--i.e., as an ability to...

    Correspondence is a process, not an actual theory of what truth is. Combustion converted to motion is a process but doesn’t describe what an engine coupled to a transmission is. I feel that...

    Bingo. You're an astute fellow. Hence, Universalism.

    God has woven a systematic, rational, allegorical system into Scripture that aligns with the metaphysic presented here. In fact, the value...

    I think it comes across as difficult because it's a bit unorthodox. The premise follows Avicenna's comment in the Summa that [paraphrasing] truth is a component of essence. So there must be two...

    I accept that reasoning is internally subjective and relative. The value-impeded [falsified] intellect is incapable of wholly grasping the immutable, where the absolute reigns. But concepts like...

    Yes, the 'moral component' and law of God written on hearts is a corollary of the metaphysic presented. Its most unorthodox component is probably the idea that value is a component of reality on the...

    Though I hold a fairly traditional Christianity, I have to part ways with the status quo on the matter of atheist morality. To understand the matter I have to define truth as I see it:

    But the blind assertion that "objective verifiable evidence" can only be empirical is the primary religious belief of materialism. That's why I wondered where you have room for a belief in God--He...
