“Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanation, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover that materialism is absolute for we cannot allow a divine foot in the door.”
darwinist, Richard Lewontin, “Billions and Billions of Demons,” 31
As I saw in the series on Intelligent Design, beginning with the post “Nothing Did It” http://makarios-makarios.blogspot.com/2009/12/nothing-did-it.html
darwinists have defined science in such a way that the only possible answer to the information in DNA is materialism. This is not because what we observe leads us to believe that specific instructions come from random acts of mutation. They don’t. As Lewontin has confessed and as every atheist in the world knows, their commitment to materialism is a philosophical decision in search of evidence.
