Hi Bernie,


Good question to ask your atheist. My guess is that their view will be
something to the effect that science is working on this and has several
"theories" regarding this (eg. panspermia). They do not understand that
the Island of Science will always be stuck and surrounded by the Sea of
Subjectivity no matter how much they thing the island will grow.
Further, if they cut off the Sea, they should be prepared to no longer have
any water supply.

A questions about the 'scientism' worldview (science is the only reality).
(I'm dealing with an atheist like that.)


If a person says they accept only 'science,' should they have a logical
issue with evolution since there is no scientific understanding of how
biological life can arise from non-life? Seems like abiogenesis is a
'belief' based on the evidence indicated by science in general, yet the
atheist I'm dealing with claims to have "no beliefs of any kind."
