I got into a debate with an arrogant attorney about same-sex marriage who kept telling me I was "ignorant" when I told him I had issues with the American Psychiatric Association's definitions about homosexuality for various reasons related to scientific methodology. Not to mention the groupthink that has befallen Catholic and other devout researchers who criticize their studies.
It dawned on me that in the absence of God then nothing is true and nothing is false. Formal logic says that the appeal to authority is a logical fallacy and that saying the scientific method can be proven because of the scientific method is circular reasoning.
In the end scientism as much of a religion as Christianity, especially because both rely on faith.
I think you may be getting a little out of the ballpark by saying that nothing is true and nothing is false. If you set up
your theory, you can either prove it or disprove it, by using the scientific method, only if that method applies to
proving your theory.
Could you explain a little about the American Psychiatric Association's definition about homosexuality? Apparently,
some time ago Homosexuality was considered a defect. Not sure what they are saying now.
