You can find it here (I think I tried linking to that speech in a previous comment, but I think I messed something up because the link doesn't work, in case this link also doesn't work you can find it at speeches.byu.edu and search browse for Truman G. Madsen). Realism is the view that objects exist in themselves, independently of our consciousness of them. I have never seen them sitting down and write equations like 2 + 2 = 4.You really are Johny come lately. After all the trouble we went through! "But again, what I want to know is whether QL42 means to imply that processes like intuition or inspiration fit within the empirical realist's toolkit. Against Kantianism, such knowledge is directly about reality, so that the Kantian idea of unknowable things‐in‐themselves is rejected. Hence the comments of Hawking I alluded to.The Wikipedia article on theory of everything discusses Godel's theorem with some back and forth and concludes: "Analogously, it may (or may not) be possible to completely state the underlying rules of physics with a finite number of well-defined laws, but there is little doubt that there are questions about the behavior of physical systems which are formally undecidable on the basis of those underlying laws." This verification happens through a rational, logical discourse, which of necessity cannot happen until those involved have had similar experiences on which to base their conversation. "Epistemological realism" is widely used today as I quote from the wikipedia article. This is the point of Wittgenstein's Private Language Argument.So the issue that you are bringing up is actually the distinction between Platonic rationalism and Aristotelian empiricism. 3, p. 30). As nouns the difference between relativism and idealism is that relativism is (uncountable|philosophy) the theory, especially in ethics or aesthetics, that conceptions of truth and moral values are not absolute but are relative to the persons or groups holding them while idealism is the property of a person of having high ideals that are usually unrealizable or at odds with practical life. -- Yes, to a point. … From my understanding, and it depends on how you define what a TOE is, but if if everything really means everything that is ever observable (which is the definition most physicists are aiming for), I think Godel implies we are screwed.

This chapter shows that idealism is better understood as a series of approaches to knowledge related more in name than in specific epistemological doctrine. Quantumleap42,Thank you for writing this and like Cartesian said, I think you have demonstrated a mature understanding of philosophy. Maybe two strict realists who don't have any data in common can't have a meaningful dialogue, but two idealists who are able to reason along the same lines can. To use an analogy that might make sense, realism would be like a theory of physics that accepts conservation of energy, and idealism would be like a theory that does not accept that conservation of energy. But you couldn't grasp step one: that it is possible to construct a set of things that are true.So, I realized we had to go slowly as this was a tricky concept. In popular usage, an idealist is someone who believes in high ideals and strives to make them real, even though they may be impossible. Epistemological realism claims that it is possible to obtain knowledge about mind‐independent reality. John,Appears you are one more myopic.

No, unless you gather large amounts of data from many different people and then perform a statistical analysis of it. This means that knowledge of God must first be gained independently and personally, but after that knowledge is gained it is subject to the system of objective checks and balances, meaning before I can claim experience with God in a rational way, it must be independently verified by the personal experiences of others. So we are off to a good start here. That's called a strawman by the way.

Modern realism has various forms such as, scientific, sociopolitical, aesthetic, epistemological (the study or a theory of the nature and grounds of knowledge especially with reference to its limits and validity) and moral realism.

Penrose On Whether A Platonic Objectivity Can Exist Independent of Human Minds. JS,Taking your proposition of super set, and also the fact that there are many religions all claiming to be the superset, we must try to bring an order in this: the question is which twig of which branch of the superset the LDS belong to, especially keeping in mind that LDS is a recent addition in the religion... Was it a lost twig? ").Furthermore, an objective world view would be in direct opposition to the idea of torture, as it would be impossible to force, through torture or other means, a particular view, opinion or world view. Just to point out I am not a Mormon so don't try to skirt around the issue as you did with others by insulting mormons. Also, if the world is truly objective then there would be no harm in proselytizing as we would only be speaking of things as the really are (as the Charles Dickens put it, "These things are what they are, do not blame me. I think all people should be proud to be scientists regardless of religious affiliation just as I think heart surgens should be proud of being heart surgens independent of their religious affiliation.I fail to see any hard evidence that religion is effecting the quality of science coming from scientists who are persistently publishing in peer reviewed journals. You haveot responded to my comments which basically is that religious scientist is an oxymoron, which by now, puts most of you in that category.Scientific work has to be reproducible independently as reported. Look at Gaddafi. Relativism is a family of philosophical views which deny claims to objectivity within a particular domain and assert that facts in that domain are relative to the perspective of an observer or the context in which they are assessed. JS,Yes, you were trying to be condescending. -- Part of what I was driving at (and is discussed in quite depth in the book Science, Religion, and Mormon Cosmology by Erich Robert Paul, definitely worth reading) is that Mormonism inherently has build into it a mechanism for dealing with these problems.

Realism asserts two fundamental things about the world: first, that objects outside of our mind have existence; second, that objects outside of our minds are independent from our minds, that is, that facts about these objects are true or false regardless of our opinions or beliefs. One day I would like to talk to you more about such views as I'm sure they are *very* interesting. Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland!So, statements made by the true things (now gods are a thingy according to you) can be false, per Godel. It is an act of faith to take a bite in the bread offered by a stranger. As a LDS scientist in the start of my career I'm just now beginning to see the fundamental importance of addressing these kinds of questions, so I really appreciate finding blogs like this one to hash through this stuff with folks like yourselves. "I'm very glad. Idealism as a philosophy came under heavy attack in the West at the turn of the 20th century. If I understand correctly an epistemological realist is limited to tools whereby the data is separate from the observer's experience; that is that the data itself is independent from the observation and can be observed by other means by other observers. Thus it would be more logical to conclude that torture is used for political "conversion" rather than religious "conversion". Idealism as a philosophy came under heavy attack in the West at the turn of the 20th century. In the above dramatization, ancient1 being the one calming dogs are smarter than humans is under the burden to define what he means, not me.But, just like in real life, the ancient1 in the story makes a claim without providing the necessary information needed to weigh the claim and then calls me a "know-it-all" because I would like to know where he is coming from. Realism is the view in metaphysics that the physical world truly exists, and is separate from or our perception of it. So the problem still remains that the tools themselves seem to be built for one or the other epistemological approach and I just don't know of any objectivist-realist tools that let you approach the spiritual in a totally objective and reproducible way.I'm interested in what you could say about the tools of your empiricism that help you gather data about God. Again, I know you didn't use the word "delusional" but it was what I inferred from your description of religion (although, I admit, my inference could be wrong). In the epistemological sense this means that one cannot know the existence of things beyond the realm of the intellect. What do you teach, catholism or science? Further, I would like to know how would you deal with two candidates of differing faith, one of your kind, another totally alien to you? Idealism and Realism relate to teaching and student learning because teachers tend to teach through an idealist’s perspective verses a realist’s perspective. Thus inspiration, or revelation, does not work through any one sense, but with the foundation of our senses. Anybody else find it funny this ancient1 person just asserts she is right without any proof? "He said, "before I can claim experience with God in a rational way, it must be independently verified by the personal experiences of others. Because of that we have knowledge and experience locked away in our spirits that usually we are not aware of. Epistemological realism is a philosophical position, a subcategory of objectivism, holding that what you know about an object exists independently of our mind. Religion and science do not mix.

I don't know... the divide between the Platonic and Aristotelian views is something I am just starting to consider. The peer review process is designed to prevent this so to suggest this is a significant problem needs to be backed if you want it to be good science.

While what I have written here deals with three different "ways of knowing", there are more. raedyohed,What part of science you can not do because it conflicts with your qualifier LDS? From that and many other statements I am reading on the matter lead me to believe that a full TOE is shot down by Godel. All of this has been rattling around inside my head for a few years, and just recently, like in the last 6-12 months I've been starting to coherently express some of these same thoughts. Ancient1,Okay, I see you may have issues with the peer review process and so I will humor you and ask: what would be a better "litmus test" that we can use to decide if science is being to contaminated by personal bias/beliefs than the traditional peer review process? 2+2 = 4, requires one to understand what 2 is! :)If you are saying they are oxymorons in the sense of religion and science are in disagreement I would say that for me science is a subset of true religion. Ancient1, well now you are going to have to define what science is as I almost wet my pants laughing at the idea that since orangutans swing through trees they must be better at doing experimental science than those around here.Oh, Oh, let me guess! Ancient1,I can assure you there is no "subverting science" going on around here. It turns out it is a set that is homeomorphic to the one-point compactification of a countably infinite family of open intervals *and* is path connected but not semilocally simply connected.I studied these at BYU and they are really interesting yet simple to construct. Idealism is when you envision or see things in an ideal or perfect manner. All you said, in a tactful way, is that religious people are delusional, thereby giving a perfect example of the point of QL42's post (i.e., you and Mormons cannot sit down and have a logical, rational discussion about God because you work from the assumption that Mormons are delusional and thus, not logical). "Ah, I agree this all should be questioned. Hello,I know this is annoying- but I'm trying to pinpoint a quote by John Cage. " Do you have any plausible answers the the questions you raised, like "What does it mean to add?" Ancient1,I appreciate your concerns. Just because something isn't required to do science does that make it a bad thing or pointless? In that case I can see how it would be hard to understand how intuition can be objective since it is in effect a manifestation of knowledge that is difficult (at best) or impossible (at worst) to trace. On the other hand I could see communication problems between an idealist believer and a realist skeptic. Idealism vs. Realism. The difference is that fundamental. Joseph offered an interesting definition I have never heard of that ancient1 can't wrap his mind around and so tries to avoid it knowing he is stuck.Further he provides no definition of his own. Finally, concluding remarks ensue. Especially, in advancing religions.I am happy that you feel religious because of your knowledge; I hope, one of these days you realize that you are a scientist because you yearn to know.

This is notbecause such people are thought to be devoted to a philosophicaldoctrine but because of their outlook on life generally; indeed, theymay even be pitied, or perhaps envied, for displaying a naïveworldview and not being philosophically critical at all. Maybe it doesn’t actually matter whether there’s a physical world beyond the mind. As Will Rogers put it, "There are three kinds of men. Now consider your Sunday School classes on these topics. The science community has realized progress works best when people are forced to keep the the discussion at an elevated level.However, given it takes two to tango for that I apologize and if you feel any of mine or anyone else's comments were riddled with personal attacks let me know which ones you think were over the top and I will delete those too.Again, I hope you stick around but I also hope to keep the discussion elevated. :). I practice yoga of breath and meditation leading me to silence of my Spirit, and by the way, this is the reality of us all, to be experienced by us all, uniquely. But look at the culture.

It is an interaction between spirit(s) and at this time we cannot measure or directly observe that (see D&C 131:7). At its best the act of proselytizing is the act of one, who has had a singular religious experience, striving to instill in another the desire for a similar experience.But again, what I want to know is whether QL42 means to imply that processes like intuition or inspiration fit within the empirical realist's toolkit.
