Extra Nos: I do not believe in empirical science, I only believe in apriori truth





Extra Nos: I do not believe in empirical science, I only believe in apriori truth:



"The above was a quote from Kurt Godel, my favourite mathematical logician. Many people do not know about this man but his discovery of profound mathematical truth is more earth shattering than what was attributed to Einstein in the realm of physics. Besides, his life was not dogged by allegations of plagiarism unlike that of Einstein's special and general theory of relativity, in which some alleged he copied this without attribution from several physicists.

Gödel is known for his 1st and 2nd Incompleteness Theorem which has application to philosophy and theology.

Anyway, my point is the quote and why I too agree with Gödel.

Science relies on empirical and physical observations for its facts. In this regard, like other mathematicians, I do not believe mathematics is part of science. If at all I view it as part of philosophy. The second part of the quote, on apriori truth, is what is lacking in science. Here Gödel meant axioms. What are axioms? These are statements that are accepted to be obviously true. Its truth is established in the inherent nature of what language suggest. An example of an axiom is this - A or NOT A. Either A is true or NOT A is true. It cannot be both. This is obviously true."

 Paul the Plagiarizer never learned to give credit to the work of others,like The Catholic Encyclopedia. That is why he is an editor at
Concordia Publishing House, where they imagine that Luther taught against Justification by Faith.

 Honor the Reformation and Luther with a doggy t-shirt.
