I was wondering about the question of materialism, shouldn’t that be on the list, given advances in physics over the last 100 years? It is not that the scientific method does not work, in fact it works so well that I am currently transforming thoughts into characters on a computer screen that will be converted into energy and information and (rematerialized) before your very eyes.
Perhaps, the scientific method is simply immature with regards to the list of subtle energies which are the primary focus of the Center for Inquiry. Not that I have any issue with questioning these items, I just think that the belief that reality is physical should be added to the list of items now demanding extraordinarily proof.
Science works incredibly well, but it is also challenging the paradigm that reality is physical.
