Response to Causality in science
You unwittingly prove what I had posted on another board.
Science's focus on quantitative measures has led to critiques that it is unable to recognize important qualitative aspects of the world.
Polymath and Episkopos of Discordianism Robert Anton Wilson stresses that the instruments used in scientific investigation produce meaningful answers relevant only to the instrument, and that there is no objective vantage point from which science could verify its findings since all findings are relative to begin with.
Aronowitz also alleges that while scientists consider it absurd that Fundamentalist Christianity uses biblical references to bolster their claim that the Bible is true, scientists pull the same tactic by using the tools of science to settle disputes concerning its own validity.
And so this circular argument goes!
