Are religions falsifiable? How would you go about testing a religious truth claim? They typically aren’t observable or repeatable? So the scientific method is out. In fact, most of life’s important realities aren’t subjectable to the scientific method. However, we aren’t limited to the scientific method for gleaning knowledge and discerning truth. We also have historiographic testing. Andy reads Chapter 4 of his book, Contradict – They Can’t All Be True, to explain the historiographic method and it’s three tests.
Andy closes by sharing listener feedback for the past four episodes.
One thought on “47. Are Religions Falsifiable?”
Reading and examining the scriptures of those religions is a great place to start. And then asking an adherent of those faiths, or their religious leaders, vicars, imams, gurus, etc, what the most important tenets and practises of those faiths really are, or really boil down to. That would help.
They certainly can’t all be true, can they?? But which faith, or faiths, actually claim to be the one true faith?? Narrowing it down like that might help. Which faith, of faiths, does/do claim to be the one true faith??? Let’s be more assertive in our enquiries!
