Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

Do you see any elephants that have always existed? No? Is it not then obvious that there is nothing that has always existed? what has your answer to do with the point i made ? If there were absolutely nothing , then there would still be absolutely nothing, and we would not be here. So it is unavoid...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

Please prove that assertion. I will accept (for the sake of argument at least) that everything that begins to exist in our universe must have a cause, but it does not logically follow that this rule applies to the universe itself. (The universe is not a thing in the universe.) You are also proposin...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

how do you probably KNOW i have no evidence to back up my faith ? If you have evidence then you don't need faith but please go ahead and produce your evidence. Of course i need faith, since evidence is not absolute proof. Evidence are scientific facts, based on which you can make deductions. But th...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

Therefore outside of our universe, irrational things can happen ? like a square be equal a circle ? or 1 + 1 = 3 ? you don't believe that, do you ? No, I don't. Although, interestingly you do. You believe that everything must have a cause, including the universe. But you also believe in a being who...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

Certainly in our universe nothing comes from nothing. But that doesn't tell us about the universe itself. As time and space (or spacetime) began at the Big Bang, it may be that there's no meaningful way of talking about what happened before it. Common sense does not necessarily apply when it comes ...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

Do you agree there must have been eternally something in existence ? Or do i get it wrong, if i say that from absolutely nothing, nothing derives ? As I said, nobody knows for sure. Of course we do not have empirical evidence, but you can certainly use reason, to answer my question, no ? One thing ...

Well, nobody knows exactly so let's just say it was a petulant space wizard who was somehow always there. :roll:

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

I'm in favour of the Big Bang Theory as to the origin of our universe. And what caused the Big Bang ? How do you know there even is something by the way? thats a good question to who believes something only with empirical proofs..... There is a lot of fantastic work and published literature on all ...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

I don't believe you. Your modo operandi will ALWAYS be to find reasons to back up your prefered world view, for what ever reason it is. Even if these reasons are irrational. Thats because you do not search for truth, but for whatever confirms what you want to believe. To what do you attribute the f...

Re: Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

I can't think of any similar example that predicts a supernatural world to support our universe. To what do you attribute the existence of our universe ? why is there something rather than nothing ? And you may retort that it is fickle of me to try and use the laws of the natural universe to arrive...
