5 Things that Can't Be Proven By Science, but are still Rational to accept

To watch the video of this, Click on this and watch William Lane Craig own this guy in a 1998 debate. Skip to 1:10. This is what he said:

1. Logic and Mathematics

Science presupposes Math and Science, Science cannot prove these things, but everyone accepts them as truth.

2. Metaphysical truths

The concept there are other minds other than your own, or that the past was not created 5 minutes ago with an appearance of age cannot be proven/disproven by science.

3. Ethical beliefs

You cant show by science whether the Nazi scientists did anything worse than the American scientists in WWII or otherwise.

4. Aesthetic judgments

The beautiful, like the good cannot be scientifically tested.

5. Science itself

Science itself cannot be justified by the scientific method that would be circular reasoning.

-William Lane Craig

Science isn't the end all be all. Don't fear Science, Fear God.

Psalm 27:4
One thing I have desired of the LORD,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD,
And to inquire in His temple.
