How to Know Immaterial Things Exist

« What is the Relationship of Faith and Reason and How Does this Relate to Salvation through Faith? | Main | The No-God Delusion »



Unfortunately the senses is not what's at work when it comes to religion. It's more like cultural units of information are so virulent because of their evolutionary history that hijack cognitive architecture and settle down in your brains. Religious concepts are the interpretations and what we all experience but they're cultural constructs. We all experience what later came to be known as psychological immortality and common sense dualism. But religious interpret those experience by creating cultural concepts such us: the afterlife. That's why we need science. In science, since we do need peer revision, it's not so easy to believe your own faulty senses. Our senses are wrong most of the time and they cannot be trusted. But we have found ways to overcome them and find out things about reality. It's called the scientific method not religion.

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

I urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. Jude 3

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
