5 Reasons Why "Naturalism" Fails as a Worldview

Is Naturalism a self-defeating idea to hold onto? Is it possible that Naturalism is insufficient as a perspective on reality in the areas of science, philosophy, and liveability? 

As we discuss in this episode of "Intelligent Faith Radio" the worldview of Naturalism is fraught with intellectual problems and contradictions, and is a completely bankrupt and inconsistent view of reality.  Be sure to take note of the 5 ways in which Naturalism fails, and use it in your conversations and discussions about the Christian worldview.

The Evidence of Biological Information

Is the foundation of all biological life based on something that is itself non-physical and immaterial in nature - INFORMATION?  

Do we see the signature of an Intelligent Designer within the genetic encoded language of DNA?

As you will see in this short clip from "Case For A Creator", the answer is a resounding "Yes!".  How fascinating it is that we have discovered in the 20th century, that in the midst of scientists claiming that the only reality that exists, is that which is physical and material, we have come to learn that the very foundation of life itself is based on INFORMATION - a non-physical and immaterial reality.  

The DNA molecule (hardware) and the encoded, digital language it contains (software) have rightly been dubbed "the Holy Grail" of the biological sciences and will likely be the undoing of the Neo-Darwinian naturalistic worldview.

Is Christianity Unscientific?

Neo-atheist Sam Harris alleges that the faith of Christian geneticist Francis Collins is 

unscientific:

James Watson, the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, a Nobel laureate, and the original head of the Human Genome Project, recently [asserted] in an interview that people of African descent appear to be innately less intelligent than white Europeans. A few sentences, spoken off the cuff, resulted in academic defenestration… Watson’s opinions on race are disturbing, but his underlying point was not, in principle, unscientific… there is, at least, a possible scientific basis for his views. While Watson’s statement was obnoxious, one cannot say that his views are utterly irrational or that, by merely giving voice to them, he has repudiated the scientific worldview and declared himself immune to its further discoveries. Such a distinction would have to be reserved for Watson’s successor at the Human Genome Project, Dr. Francis Collins.1

How should one understand and respond to the accusation that Christianity is ‘unscientific’?

A Powerful Apologetic Method: ABDUCTIVE Reasoning!

"What in the world is 'Abductive Reasoing'?" Well, abductive reasoning is employed by crime scene detectives, car mechanics, and your medical doctor.  Abductive reasoning is when you look at all the known facts, and seek to form the best explanation to explain the data.  Abductive reasoning seeks to find the "inference to the best explanation" for the known facts.   

This is a vital way of thinking and investigating that all serious Christians should be engaged in....
