And that, Ray, must be one of the most mammoth-sized cop-out evasions you have made in all these years of posting on GH Inner Space!!!Quote
As long as you say the same thing about physics, I can see that argument--but it makes intellectual life pretty boring. Theoretical physicists like Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking are interesting even though their ideas are not directly testable. We are allowed to imagine that their speculations about multiple universes and all sorts of mystical forces are true even though none of these possibilities can be tested any time soon. The data we gather through applied physics keep their dreams alive.
Likewise, Paul Tillich and Noam Chomsky are both philosophers/theologians that inspire me as a more practical applied philosopher to consider both spiritual and material foundations of cognition--even though our tidbits of scientific information remain insufficient to prove the spiritual manifestations expressed in religion.
