Pushing The Antithesis – Part 7 – Overcoming Metaphysical Bias

Though metaphysics is a central component in any worldview, as you look around you will discover that much of the modern world discounts the value of metaphysics and resists metaphysical inquiry.

Some key take away’s from this chapter:

  • The modern scientific mind has developed a hostility to metaphysics.
  • The bias favoring epistemology over metaphysics is strongly influenced by our modern fascination with “secular” science.
  • Opponents of metaphysics (and thereby of the theology of the Bible) view metaphysical reasoning as conflicting with empirical science as
    the one and only way to acquire knowledge. -Always Ready -Bahnsen
