SCIENCE is from the Latin for 'knowledge', which philosophically means 'true, justified belief'.

informs wisdom, reason and humanism.

This creates a 4-legged worldview within reality that maximizes well-being for individuals and society.

A Letter To Christian Apologists

From: An ex-Devout Catholic (my background)

"I don't know if there is a God (agnostic), and you don't either. I am an atheist because there is no evidence in support of such. Efforts to convince people that understanding reality through Faith is a way to Truth is Gaslighting." ~Tom Rafferty

Please ponder the following points and questions:
  • Philosophy
The difference between philosophy and science: Science used inductive reasoning (from the bottom up) which results in probable conclusions. Philosophy uses deductive reasoning (from the top down) and the conclusion has "certainty" IF all of the argument is true. However, every logical syllogism and argument for an interventionist deity has at least one unsupported assertion (these are some examples). This summarizes the problem with philosophy:  there is no consensus.
