I understand what you are saying. I have all along; I'm not sure that YOU understand what you are saying. You are betting that science has the potential to explain everything. You are taking a position of faith that everything is natural, and as a consequence there IS nothing supernatural. I've been saying this all along; just trying to show you that you are closing yourself off to possibilities and are placing your trust in something inherrently not trustworthy. Proof of that merely requires consideration of how often scientific knowledge is uprooted by new theories and new knowledge. BTW, I reject your notion of faith being only positive; choosing the positive of two mutually exclusive possibilties also gives you the negative.Alien wrote:Strictly speaking, the answer to your question cannot be other than "None". There is no difference between "cannot be scientifically explained" and "supernatural".Felgar wrote: So having to admit that science cannot hope to explain everything, you are left clinging to a semantic definition as "unexplained, and not supernatural." Tell me what is the difference between something that cannot be scientifically explained and something that is supernatural?
But, I would not say that science cannot explain something. I would say that science does not explain something. Here there is a big difference, perhaps not immediately visible. I have never been in New Zealand. This does not mean that I am not able to go to New Zealand, but simply that I have not done it.
They are only foreign to each other from your point of view. Check out the banner at the top of the page; as God has stated: "The Heavens declare the glory of God."Psalm 19 By understanding our world, we better understand the One who made it.Alien wrote:I simply look for scientific explanations, for everything. And, as I said in my first posts here, I am trying to understand how it is possible (looking at the title of this site) to mix science with faith. The two concepts are foreign each other.Felgar wrote: And why are you willing to preempt seeking real truth in lieu of a weak are arbitrary classification of those things that we cannot explain? How has your life been enriched by this philospohy?
Anyways, I hope that one day you'll open your mind to new possibilties. I believe your philosophies are to your own detrement, and maybe one day you'll come to see that.
