Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind
TORONTO (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
Einstein said, “Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” The debate between evolutionism and creationism is a lively and contentious one, and in his new book Creation or Evolution? Origin of Species in Light of Science’s Limitations and Historical Records (published by iUniverse) author Michael Ebifegha argues that it may be past time to put the argument aside.
Ebifegha examines the constraints of science as an explanatory framework for the origin of species and compares the contemporary world to a hypothetical world under the influence of evolutionary processes and agency. Additionally, he considers the irrelevance of the Earth’s age to the creationist/evolutionist controversy. He stresses that knowledge of the intersection between the origin of life and the origin of species is required to establish the latter.
Ebifegha augments the natural selection discussion in light of Fodor and Piattelli-Palmarini’s work, and addresses science’s limitations in deploying similarity/dissimilarity arguments in the debate between creationism and evolutionism. Finally, he focuses on the lack of historical evidence to justify an evolutionary worldview.
Creation or Evolution? discusses how the M-theory and Charles Darwin’s paradigm of evolution by natural selection are outside the limits of science. Ebifegha shows that readers must look beyond the inadequacy of such theories and address the validity of science as the sole avenue of inquiry.
