  1. The Scientific Method is only one method for finding truth, is only useful for dealing with things that are observable, and it is not infallible.

    No method of finding truth is infallible.

  2. We do not claim that it is infallible, only less fallible than any other method. As for those things beyond our ability to observes by any means, no method applied by any human being could ever be useful.
    – Chalmer

  3. Довольно интересно конечно. Я немогу подписаться под каждым вашим словом, но в общем соглашусь.

  5. I can definitely relate to the part about not having representation, though in a different way because I’m not an Atheist.

    Being a political Libertarian, my political representation is zilch, nada, squat.

  6. Well done! Could use a bit more editing. For instance: the second use of the scene of the sculture of the “praying hands” should be moved to later in the doc(or the first), or one should be eleminated (identical scenes too close together). The upside down head next to Joel’s head in his interview is VERY distracting. Could have been a better background for both interviews. Need a better edit between Joel & Chalmer’s “back and forth” comments. Check the sync (could be YouTube). Good lighting on the interviews! Generally, good work!

  7. For things that are observable but not quantifiable (e.g. ethics), there are methods like Ethical Intuition.

    It’s also difficult to quantify feelings. Like Abraham Low said (in discussion about a book title):

    “There are subjective facts that the subject feels and objective facts that everybody who has eyes, ears, hands, and certain intelligence can verify. And so the title of that article should read, ‘Feelings Are Subjective Facts but Not Objective Facts.’ But that title would take up about two lines in the book, and we don’t want that. Therefore, we merely let it read, ‘Feelings Are Not Facts.’ But you should supplement in your mind the adjective objective and say, ‘Feelings Are Not Objective Facts.'”
