The Philosophy of Science

  THE PHILOSOPHY OF SCIENCE

 [ This was a short essay question—which I expounded on—for one of my philosophy classes at school. The direct subject of chiropractic medicine was chosen by the teacher. I have no experience in this practice and so I have no partiality toward it either way. I just don’t care. But it did make for an interesting foothold to talk about the “philosophy of science” itself. And so, I decided to defend or discredit chiropractic medicine on the standard of the philosophy of science itself—an important presupposition many overlook; however, I will not play their game. I will not overlook it.]

 

QUEST. Is chiropractic medicine legitimate?

 

ANS. If medicine is “science,” then it must admit chiropractic medicine as genuine.

If medicine is defined as “the SCIENCE of restoring or preserving health,” and legitimate is defined as “conforming to recognized principles or accepted rules and standards,” then yes it would be.

 

SCIENCE A LOGICAL FALLACY

Medicine’s definition is based on it being science. By science, I mean scientific experimentation. Now, by scientific experimentation I mean how a scientist looks to confirm their hypotheses for what is a “cause,” by controlled tests.  Logically this is called “affirming the consequent.” The problem with “affirming the consequent,” which is the basis for all scientific experimentation, is that it is a logical fallacy. Experimentation logically means, affirming the consequent.  It logically works backwards from result to cause. If one gets the result, the assertion is that there must be some truth behind it. However, Correlation does not infer causation.  For now, I will just skip over science’s other fatal flaws such as empiricism and induction and just focus on this.

Scripture and Logic: Galatians

Oshea Davis. 2016

 

 

(1.)  Eph. 6:11-13

A.A.A categorical

A note for how to find syllogisms.

Here in Ephesians when we look for a word indicator for a conclusion we see the word “therefore.” However, Paul makes this even easier in that he states the conclusion in verse 11 and then again, slightly differently in verse 13—this time with the “therefore.” Now, as with a syllogism when we have the conclusion we already have the subject of the minor premise (i.e. the second sentence) and the predicate of the major premise (first sentence). One helpful aspect to remember, is that in a logical premise for a syllogism the “literary’ subject and predicate are often flipped to how the “logical” form does it. The reason for this is that with the logical/categorical form we want the subject and predicate to reflect the logical connection of what properly belongs in a “category.” For example, I can say, My favorite two legged creatures are birds.  However, birds belong in the larger logical category of, “two legged creatures.” For this reason, in the logical form, Birds, would be the subject and, two legged animals, would be the predicate. Image a large circle with the label, “two legged creatures,” and then image a smaller circle completely within this one labeled as, “birds.” This is what we mean by categories. However, Paul already has the conclusion in the logical order and so we leave it be. Now, let us look for the middle term. This time, the middle term comes sandwiched between the repeated conclusion in verse 12. 

Ephesians 6:11-13.

(Subject) Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to (Predicate) stand against the wiles of the devil.

(middle) For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

 Therefore; (S) take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to (P) withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

 

This is an (A,A,A) (All S is P) syllogism. The Major Premise, is Middle Term, then the Predicate; the Minor Premise, is Subject then Middle term. And of course, the Conclusion is the Subject of the Minor p. and the Predicate of the Major p.

Major P. (Those who fight/wrestle against rulers of darkness) are (Those that are able to stand against the attacks of Darkness.)

Minor P. (Christians who put on the whole armor of God) are (those who fight/wrestle against the rulers of Darkness.)

Therefore, (Christians who put on the whole armor of God) are (Those that are able to stand against the attacks of Darkness.)

This book is a Sermonette/Commentary on Romans chapter eight.

 

It will focus on contrasting a Biblical way of looking at the world vs. a non-biblical system-of-thinking. In this contrast one will discover non-Christian philosophies are empty superstitions.  They do not give knowledge of the world as it is, and they do not give progress or salvation.

 

On the other hand, the Christian through God's revelation finds that they are on the good path from the start. God has not only given His beloved Children a self-authenticating first principle that describes the world as it is, but it reveals a God who came down to this dusty earth and did something wonderful. God did the planning. He did the saving and redeeming. He did the heavy lifting Himself and saved His chosen ones. And now, the same endless power that caused light to burst out of the void of darkness, that power which raised Jesus Christ from the grave, also surges in the souls of His children to believe, love and hope.
