Metaphysics is not Science


There’s a new Simon Says game in town and it’s called: Science Says. As lovely as the method called Science is, it nontheless remains mute. Science can say nothing at all. Which is an attractive quality when one considers how many daft things Simon says.

This ventroliquism with the Science puppet is in vogue not only among snarky laypeople but also in some fairly educated folk as well. It stems from a misunderstanding of science’s problem domain by turning her into the philosophical pursuit called Metaphysics.

And…then taking metaphysics and replacing it with bold assertions that would make a clergyman blush.

The Shill

As things stand it takes about two hours to render a twenty minute video. These are the sorts of reasons that I ask people to consider supporting the journal. If you get value out of what I do here, whether it be stories, essays, videos, comics whatever; then please consider tossing some change in the jar, every dollar counts.

Every dollar helps me stay independent of advertisers and keep the site uncluttered. Every dollar helps in my effort to save more for equipment and to buy more time for projects.

Whatever you decide to do thanks for stopping by. I’ll keep creating regardless of monetary reward. The reason that I bring it up is that life isn’t free and a bit of scratch helps family, friends, and community see that I’m not just a hobbyist frittering away my time.
