Origins science – Can science really discover the origin of the universe?
Aerospace engineer Phil Andrews is examining whether science possesses tools of inquiry adequate to explore all conceivable explanations of the origin of the universe. Given that it is normal practice to apply ‘Methodological Naturalism’ to ‘Origins Science’, scientists suppress any notion that what they are observing was supernaturally created. The concept of supernatural creation is not allowed and so scientists are not free to contemplate that prospect; they must keep to natural explanations regardless of the evidence. So they become unscientific and break the tradition of independent inquiry. See Mr Andrews’ separate page for an updated brief available for critical review. A fresh version – concluding that a new scholarly journal to publish origins science is warranted – was posted on 12 September 2019.
