The Unreasonable Doubt of Rational Deduction

Because science relies only on what we know to reliably reveal the truth, we call this objective inquiry or rational thought. But this is only rational if you’re blissfully innocent of all senses to the contrary of the result. In actuality, science, as the penultimate source of truth, is the abandonment of reason.

Science employs the five natural senses, sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch, or technological extensions or assistances of these, in order to understand the existence in which we reside. Because science relies only on what we know to reliably reveal the truth, we call this objective inquiry or rational thought. But this is only rational if you’re blissfully innocent of all senses to the contrary of the result. In actuality, science, as the penultimate source of truth, is the abandonment of reason.

By objectifying the senses, taking them out of the subjective, the man, we lose the qualities of the mind, which not only processes the data from the five senses, but also applies another sense to the compilation of all those data streams. It applies rational deduction.

Rational deduction is not simply an analysis of the five senses and a summary report, or we would find it difficult to call it the sense we instinctively know it to be. A sense it is, we gather, and it often tells us things contrary to what our individual senses would have us to believe.

We find we have an additional sense which can not be separated from the man. In separating the senses which can be separated from the man and ignoring what can not, science, well-meaning and profitable in cases it may be, has seen fit to conclude on a matter missing the most integral sense of them all. Science has seen it reasonable to objectify the senses that it can objectify while leaving out what it can not.  This it has not deemed unreasonable though the mind enables the most critical sense of them all, the rational sense.

In other words, the only thing that gives a man reason is his mind. Science has taken the mind out of the picture and has thus become unreasonable.

It should be clear that a complete, coherent perception of the existence which you inhabit requires not a simple, black and white analysis of the natural, but a complex arsenal of rational tools. Science has naively over-simplified its toolset and become irrational.

Well stated by one of the most prominent men of science, Einstein, “everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.”
