Dave: The most glorious question one can ask today is this:
Jeff: Is it scientific?
Dave: We want to know whether things are scientifically proven, and that’s a good thing.
Jeff: We love science.
Dave: Truth. It can lead us to truth.
Jeff: One problem, however, is that science is not the only way to find truth.
Dave: For some reason we’ve elevated science above all other disciplines in our culture.
Jeff: But philosophy can guide us to logical and epistemological realities.
Dave: Archeology can help us discover truths!
Jeff: Not to mention psychology.
Dave: Theology, sociology…
Jeff: And math. Heck, even art can help us explore truth.
Dave: So, while asking whether something is scientific is fine, be sure not to exclude other methods of finding what is real.
Jeff: Quick example: scientists engage in study about the beginning of the Universe, and whether it is eternally old.
Dave: But philosophy already answered that question. You cannot traverse and infinite amount of time and end up here.
Jeff: Science. It’s awesome. But, it’s not the only way to gain knowledge.
