GOD: new evidence


A mistake we were born to make?

(Beyond Ourselves #27)

What's in the series?      Previous: Is evil real?       Next: What we are not saying

If naturalism is true – if we are nothing but atoms and molecules – natural selection has programmed us with beliefs that are important, but false.

For example, if naturalism is true, there cannot be any real right or wrong (right and wrong can only be something we create, not something built into the universe). And yet natural selection has - apparently - programmed us to believe in right and wrong.  As the psychologist Joshua Greene from Harvard University says, it is 'a mistake we were born to make.'

This means that we cannot trust natural selection to program us with true beliefs.  But in that case, why should we trust any of our beliefs – including our belief that we are just atoms and molecules?  The snake of naturalism eats its own tail.
