Where Science Fails

Updated: Apr 5

I am continuing the thoughts presented here https://www.philosophicallyinclined.com/physics-possibly-a-dead-end


Science is never settled, which implies that is always unsettled.


Science is a self-correcting ongoing process, which implies that it is always wrong and will always be wrong (science will continue to be self-correcting). New evidence humbles every scientist and apologist of science. Centuries of scientific progress get proven when new evidence emerges. There is no reason to think that there will come a time when we will have seen it all. In other words, new evidence will never cease to emerge. I am not suggesting that the pursuit of Science is worthless. I am suggesting that the apotheosis of Science as some sort of divine guidance is misguided because Science will never find the truth.


How then can we find the truth? I am inclined to think that revelation might be the only source of truth. Here, I am not speaking of everyday truths but of eternal principles.


Seeking truth is a verb. Verbs imply intention. Intent implies a subject of intent. But the subject is an illusion. It is an illusionary cloud of perception, intention, biases, and illusions. How can something in space be observed/seen when the sky is cloudy? Therefore, truth can not be sought. It can only be found or revealed. When it is revealed, it does not have to go through or be processed via a cloud of intentions and the source of intention. It stays pure and unadulterated.
