    If you want to refute something so fundamental, give some references, find a website on the basics of science. Somewhere around 4th grade level should do it.

    No references. No authority. No hand-holding. To investigate the nature of the building blocks of reality, even fundamentals have to be discarded. We need to step into the void before the mind was formed. This is real meditation.

    One of the principles of science is that an object’s existence is not dependent on our ability to perceive it.

     

    I dispute this, because I “know” that I am the center and the whole of the universe ! ! !

    One of the principles of science is that an object’s existence is not dependent on our ability to perceive it.

    How can the above be a scientific principle? Is it possible to have science without the scientist, the curious investigator? If an object’s existence is not dependent on the ability of the scientist to study its nature and qualities, how on earth can scientific knowledge be acquired?

    The only object’s existence that is not dependent on our ability to perceive it is God. Is this a principle of science? Can I dispute it now?

    Science is discovery.  Discovery requires that the discovered be present before the discoverer.  We do not create.
