Kirk Durston writes:
[S]cience reveals that nature, composed of space, time, matter, and energy, had a beginning. Scientism requires a natural explanation for the origin of nature, a logical impossibility. One cannot provide a natural explanation for the origin of nature without assuming the existence of nature in that “natural” explanation — a circular fallacy.
Yet another way materialism makes people stupid. It requires them to say there is a natural explanation for nature itself.
