Re-reading the OP: I know the question in the topic is a 'what-if', but that title is an odd one for a scientist, isn't it? Science, i.e. scientists, make(s) mistakes, that goes without saying, but to portray it at all as really, really wrong is rather close minded I think. I wonder if it is here another tactic to try and justify a 100% faith belief?. Of course philosophers and thinkers an

QuoteWould you like some more of Kuhn or just use your energy on zero evidence of what you are saying? Like, empty chatter for the sake of using a new computer? No, not empty chatter - a way of keeping active and providing an interesting hobby.

Word salad. You use the word insight'. How do you think insights are formed in the mind/brain? They are formed from information taken into the brain via the senses. Each individual's brain then files, re-mixes, adds to, etc this and comes up with ideas which may or may not fit with the real world.

Thank you for writing that about Kuhn's work. As I have gathered by dipping in here and there for years to find a new piece of factual, objective information about any god/spirit/etc/etc in religious beliefs to be revealed in the world of science, there isn't one. As far as I can see, Kuhn does not claim that, but I choose not to spend time listening to reams of stuff about how people think and

QuoteYou like that expression, don't you? I have learnt, from a lifetime of reading, from the experience of serious discussions on message boards, with world-wide memberships, that it is important to distinguish between subjective and objective evidence.

Quote 2. The Mind is not a space. Yet, it has "relativity" to any and all dimensions. It is cooperative and cannot be imprisoned within a skull, where its nominal function is to operate the physical body. 'The mind' is a phrase used to enable us to talk about aspects of the brain which most certainly is 'imprisoned' as you put it in the skull. Susan

QuoteLet someone else do your homework for you. If you want the real Kuhn, he's easy enough to download--but difficult to wade through. This site has done a marvelous job of presenting the main points in straightforward steps, But I am not interested, particularly at this late stage in my life and with the difficulties involved, in studying the work of Kuhn, another human being in the unbr

QuoteSo begins the personal experiential mystery of life for each of us. This sounds like yet another post attempting to rationalise your unscientific 100% faith belief, but it canot and will not ever be objective, so why not just admit that , as there is zero evidence for any god/etc/etc, the likelihood of their ever being any in the future is also zero?

QuoteIf you go through the model, you can click on each of the stages to see what happens to ideas like Darwin's theory of evolution. Why not, then, pick out one thing he says that refutes the Theory. No doubt there are points - points which have been improved, amended, and are still open to further improvement - but I'm not going to plod through that to look (i.e. listen) for a subjective view

I am talking about you and your100% faith belief. Aristotle was brilliant but he did not have access to 20th and 21st century physics for a start. QuoteRay: Au contraire.

Since each person's definition of 'spiritually;, let alone 'spiritually guided' , is different, no-one can tell …... unless you can provide definitions which are reasonably clear.

Quote[ Why should we rely on them now? As always, you do not rely on them personally, you can rely to varying degrees of course on their as-near-as-possible objective results. If you know their work is still in the stage of trying to find out what experiments can be done to verify the hypothesis made then if you choose to believe what they tell you, then that is your problem,not the scientist's,

QuoteFor many things, outside of our sphere of experience, we believe in the science. I demur slightly here - you believe what scientists have said and written. Since all good scientists know that their conclusions and results are open to challenge and revision, you can also check out the conclusions and results of other scientists. It is then your choice whether to believe the conclusions and r

This post is so back to front, I am not going to point out all the errors. However, I repeat the strong point that the number of anecdotes does not a Theory make. Anecdotes remain anecdotes unless they are backed up by objective evidence. Susan QuoteSusan, like any novelty, it has to do with credibility of practice.
