About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Empiricism: Unbelief's Calling Card
      (Gordon Haddon Clark)

      Tuesday, October 30, 2007


      Main Entry:
      em·pir·i·cism Listen to the pronunciation of empiricism
      \im-ˈpir-ə-ˌsi-zəm, em-\
      Date: 1657

      1) The view that experience, especially of the senses, is the only source of knowledge.
      2) the acceptance of sense experience as the source and test of truth.
      3) In its strong form, the thesis that there is no knowable reality behind appearances. Thus, it is the job of science to catalog the formal relations which hold between appearances without claims of describing reality.
      a theory that all knowledge originates in experience

      Here is a lecture by the late Gordon Haddon Clark that describes the fallacies of this type of humanistic philosophy. If you notice, this is one of the choice philosophies adhered to by antichrist atheists (1 John 2:22) and some in the "seeker-sensitive" church growth movement who condemn things like "going deep" or seek to redefine what "going deep" actually is. (ie "If you can't see it, feel it, or the results of it, you can't prove it so it's not true and thus not important or 'relevant'.")
