Tomorrow's Meeting

From: Jeff

Hi folks.

Archangel, one of our members, posted some ideas on the message board and I thought that I'd share them with anyone who hasn't happened to see them. Check them out below.

Also, a couple of quick points: we've met in the outside area of the Java Brewing Company but reain may keep us indoors this time. Regardless, we will have a sign up saying "Socrates Cafe" or something equally clever.

Archangel's comments:

::: A possible way of framing the debate:

1 ::: Law of 1st Mention: ? Something from Nothing? ? There can be only one truth.

2 ::: Concept A: The function of Science and Theology is the discovery of Causes and the desire to know.
Science and Theology work together for knowledge and Truth.

3 ::: Concept B: God is a hypothesis that has been disproved many times.
+ Are we currently working with a hypothetical god that has been designed to avoid detection?
+ It was interactively retro-designed to avoid being detectable as science evolved.
+ Why debate Science and Theology ( or Religion)?

4 ::: Concept C: The ?Either/Or or The Both/ And? approach.
+ Truth is expressed through the manifestation of creative Imagination.

::: Personal Comment:

5 ::: Modern science is unquestionably a very powerful tool for investigating the natural world, but no application of it can--by definition--indicate that the natural world is or is not all that exists.

6 ::: Rational theologians and philosophers have come to the conclusion-- by considering that neither science nor theology contain a ?complete toolkit? for dealing with our questions as human beings.

7 ::: Both science and theology are two individually incomplete methods that are used in the quest for understanding of causes.
+ Simply stated, the two together provide more tools.
