Welcome to “The Scientific Worldview”


This is a blog that takes the name of my magnum opus on scientific philosophy called "The Scientific Worldview: Beyond Newton and Einstein (Understanding the Universal Mechanism of Evolution)." Reviewers have called it “revolutionary,” “exhilarating,” “magnificent,” “fascinating,” and even “a breathtaking synthesis of all understanding.” There is very little math in it, no religion, no politics, and no BS. It provides the first outline of the philosophical perspective that will develop during the last half of the Industrial-Social Revolution. It is the book that Thomas Kuhn warned us about. You can order it here: (http://www.thescientificworldview.com/).

The purpose of this blog is to:
  1. Explore the ramifications of univironmental determinism as the universal mechanism of evolution.  
  2. Critique various aspects of systems philosophy generally characterized by microcosmic mistakes not already discussed in "The Scientific Worldview" (TSW).
  3. Critique various aspects of classical mechanics generally characterized by macrocosmic mistakes not already discussed in TSW.
The philosophical foundation of this blog, and of TSW in general, was developed as "The Ten Assumptions of Science" (iUniverse, 2004) (Chapter 3 in TSW). Thus, I hope that it will be unnecessary to include material covered in detail there. It is my wish to avoid the endless elementary philosophical debates already settled by those necessary assumptions. On the other hand, I am perfectly willing to refer others to the assumptions needed to continue advanced discussions. I will put the deterministic assumptions in bold italics and their indeterministic opposites in italics.

[FAQ] Why can't people post comments on my blog?

The Blogger / Google login status, and the ability to post comments, is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) "third party cookies", in their browser and on their computer. The effects of the newly unavoidable CAPTCHA, and the Google "One account" login, requires third party cookies, even more than before.

Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution, overall - but your readers may have to search for other filter(s) that affect their use of Blogger / Google.

Any filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago.
