Don’t confuse science with scientism
In my award-winning book Proving God, I attempt to unify science with theology.
While some people would argue that the realm of science only embraces the material world, this limited definition is better called scientism.
Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg (whose ideas I promote) certainly looked at his scientific pursuit as including metaphysical and spiritual realities.
I have even read that scientists do not actually seek ultimate truth, but models that can offer adequate explanations and predictions.
The most unexplainable phenomenon in the universe is human consciousness or person-level experience. Everyone has it, however, scientists cannot form third party objective conclusions about it.
So scientists cannot offer us a complete or satisfactory neural theory on consciousness.
This is a hilarious situation.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I would like to say that scientists are going to have to include LOVE into their future models of reality—including human consciousness!
