Adelaide Chapter

The philosophy and limits of science, by Dr Leonard Long, 26 September 2019.

February 17, 2022

John Lennox has challenged whether science can prove everything? However, in this presentation, Dr Leonard Long will address the question, “Can science prove anything?” Science is practised within a belief system based on unprovable presuppositions, and can study only the patterns of behaviour of an already given functional, predictable, universe. Scientists who wander into bad philosophy will be critiqued, as will scientism – the overblown belief in science.

So Leonard’s address includes the following topics:

  • Nature of science,
  • Scientism,
  • Methodological naturalism,
  • Ideological corruption within science, and
  • Interference of politics and funding within science.
