The farce continues until a child exclaims, "The Emperor has no clothes!Certainly it is true that I am human, prone to bias.Would it then be impossible to detect him simply because he is God and God is defined as undetectable?Would a God who is actually trying to be recognized as enormously powerful and intelligent actually be harder to identify than an intelligent and powerful "alien" civilization sending radiosignals to our planet?No answer can be "God probably did it" for a scientist, by definition, because God is defined as being non-materialistic or outside of Nature. If an all-powerful God wished to hide from us, he most certainly could do that - no doubt.Therefore, scientists commonly argue that God, if he even exists, is beyond the detection of science - that he cannot be ruled in or out of any equation. However, what if God wished to reveal himself through the physical world?
a non-intelligent cause, even an ultimate cause, adherence to material [i.e., mindless or randomly acting] causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated." Many go on to explain that "materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door."And there it is - - Ultimately it is all about the concept of "God".And yet, the scientific method really does not support the use of any "" assumptions when evaluating the potential truthfulness of any hypothesis or theory.The position that the mindless non-deliberate processes of nature are the only types of potentially "natural" forces that can possibly be considered when it comes to explaining the origin and diversity of life on this planet is not a requirement of the scientific method, but is rather a philosophical position.It all boils down to what scientists define as "natural" verses "supernatural".The funny thing is, scientists do theorize the involvement of intelligent minds all the time when it comes to forensic investigations or searches for extraterrestrial intelligence - since these intelligences would be "natural". Upon what basis are all considerations of the workings of an intelligent mind excluded, without any consideration whatsoever, when it comes to determining the origin and diversity of life on this planet?
