A new video series is being released to challenge the assertions made by those of the naturalistic world view.
The series, entitled “Science Uprising,” will “challenge naturalism head-on in an educational and engaging way,” according to Stand to Reason’s Tim Barnett — it will be released in partnership with the Discovery Institute.
The Discovery Institute “promotes thoughtful analysis and effective action on local, regional, national and international issues” and is “home to an inter-disciplinary community of scholars and policy advocates dedicated to the reinvigoration of traditional Western principles and institutions and the worldview from which they issued,” according to its website.
More on the series from the Science Uprising website:
“Well-known scientists have been preaching a materialistic worldview rather than presenting the public with all the evidence. We are here to change that. The objective scientific evidence does not prove our universe is blind and purposeless. It does not show we are simply meat machines. It does not prove that evolutionary mechanisms can completely account for the diversity of life on earth.
Think for yourself and make an informed decision.”
What is naturalism?
According to a definition put together by the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, Naturalism aims to “ally philosophy more closely with science” and asserts that “reality is exhausted by nature, contains nothing “supernatural”, and that the scientific method should be used to investigate all areas of reality.”
Obviously, this worldview has no room for God, and, as such, hits roadblocks when attempting to answer the most profound questions of life.
“Whole books have been written to show the weaknesses in this worldview,” Barnett explained. “The problem is, many people aren’t reading these books. Instead, they are watching YouTube.”
Each episode will be around 6-8 minutes long and will focus on the areas of life and existence that cannot be adequately explained by naturalism on its own.
The topics? The existence of free will, the existence of the immaterial mind, the origin of life, the fine-tuning of the universe for life, the destructive power of mutations, human evolution and others.
“Taken individually, naturalism is left clinging to the ropes. But, taken collectively, Science Uprising delivers a knockout blow to this failed philosophy,” Barnett concluded.
