Modern science can now provide intriguing support in answering the big questions about the nature of reality. However, the incorrect and outdated materialist worldview still has a strong hold on the collective.
The article, The 10 Dogmas of Science, offers a succinct summary of assumptions which are not facts but instead have been presumed.
- “Dogma” means “a point of view or tenet put forth as authoritative without adequate grounds.” This precisely describes the opinions found in the The 10 Dogmas of Science.
- In fact, virtually all of these dogmas have been soundly proven to be incorrect. (We bring you accessible and verifiable knowledge in this multi-page section on Consciousness and The Nature of Reality).
Here are some examples of the opinions summarized in the article linked above — every single one of which has been proven to be incorrect:
- The assumption that Nature is mechanical, or machine-like. Animals are machines, plants are machines and we are machines.
- Matter is unconscious. The Universe, Nature, our bodies, are all made of unconscious matter. For some strange reason our brains became conscious, and that is a major problem for materialist science.
- Biological inheritance is only material, it is all genetic or epigenetic.
- Your mind is inside your head, it is only an aspect of the electrical activity of the brain.
- All psychic phenomena is illusory. It appears to exist, but it doesn’t. The mind is inside the head and cannot have any effect on the outside world.
- Mechanistic medicine is the only kind that truly works. Alternative and complementary therapies may appear to work, but that’s only because people have got well anyway, or it’s due to the placebo effect.
We are more likely to dismantle this incorrect paradigm among adherents if we understand the history of how it became embedded in their belief systems. Scroll down to delve into how the incorrect materialist worldview developed.
