Scientism & Secularism


Learning to respond to dangerous ideology


Science: systems of knowledge of the physical or material world based on facts obtained through observation and experimentations.

Scientism: the view that the hard sciences alone have the intellectual authority to give us knowledge of reality.

Rigid adherence to scientism - as opposed to a healthy respect for science - is all too prevalent in our world today.  Rather than leading to a deeper understanding of our universe, this worldview actually undermines real science and marginalizes morality and religion.

In this 9-week class, we will study J. P. Moreland's book as he exposes the self-defeating nature of scientism and equips us to recognize scientism's harmful presence in different aspects of culture, emboldening our witness to biblical Christianity and arming us with strategies for the integration of faith and science - the only feasible path to genuine knowledge.
