Subject: From nominalism to Scientifc Materialism Re: Is Sheldrake credible ? 
Ipersonally think so. 


A greath truth. Every human knowledge has also social consequiences. When I say 
"A". I don? only say "A is true". I say also that because A is true and you 
must accept it because a set of my socially reputated fellows of me did 
something to affirm it, you must believe it, and, more important, I deserve a 
superior status than you, the reluctant. 


As a consequence of this fact o human nature (which has a root in natural 
selection). every corpus of accepted knowledge is associated from the beginning 
to a chiurch of guardians of ortodoxy. No matter the intentions or the 
objectivity or the asepsy of the methods of the founders. There is a power to 
keep, much to gain and loose, and as time goes on, real truth becomes a 
secondary question. ?he creatie, syncere founders are substituted by media 
polemizers and mediocre defenders of the status quio. 


This power-truth tension in science was biased heavily towards the former when 
State nationalized science at the end of the XIX century, because science was 
standardized and homogeneized to the minimum common denominator, chopping any 
heterodoxy, destroying free enquiry which was vital for the advancement. Now 
peer reviews are ?n many sofft disciplines, filters of ortodoxy, not quality 
controls. ? 


As the philosopher of science Feyerabend said, It is necessary a separation of 
State and science as much as was necessary a separartion of State and church: 
Because a state with a unique church of science is a danger for freedom, and 
because a science dominated by the state is a danger for any science. 


The standardization of science towards materiamism was a logical consequence of 
?he a philosophical stance of protestantism: the Nominalism, that rejected the 
greek philosophical legacy and separated dratically the revelated knowledge of 
the Bible form the knowledge of the things of the world without the bridge of 
greek philosophy. Mind-soul and matter became two separate realms. Common sense 
or the Nous were not a matter of science and reason, like in the greek 
philosophy (what is reasonable included what makes common sense, just like it 
is now in common parlancy), but a matter of the individual spirit under the 
firm umbrela of the biblical revelation. The problem is that this umbrela 
progressively dissapeared, and with it, common sense. That gave a nihilistic 
relativism as a consequience. With the exception of USA, where common sense is 
still supported by the faith. 


?he other cause were the wars of religion among christian denominations, that 
endend up in a agreement of separation between church and state, where any 
conflictive view was relegated to religion as faith, and only the minimum 
common denominator was admitted as a foundation for politics, This MCD was a 
form of political religion. This political religion was teist at the beginning 
(As is not in USA) laater deist and now is materialist, following a path of 
progressive reduction to accomodate the progressive secularization (which 
indeed was a logical consequence of the nominalism and the proliferation of 
faiths that the reform gave birth). 


In later stages, the political religion has dropped the country history, and 
even reversed it, and, following its inexorable logic, try to destroy national 
identity of each individual european country, in the effort to accomodate the 
incoming inmigration worldviews. This is in part, no matter how shockig is, the 
logical evolution of the agreement that ended the religious wars of the XVI 
century. 

In the teistic and deistic stages the State made use of the transcendence in 
one form or another for his legitimacy, since the divine has a plan, and people 
belive in the divine, the legitimacy of the state, in the hearths fo the 
people, becomes real when the nation-state is inserted in this divine plan. 


When, to accomodate the materialistic sects, marxists among them, the ?tate 
took over Science to legitimate itself, because the State no longer had the 
transcendence as an option to suppor his legitimacy. the legitimacy of the 
state was supported by a materialistic sciece, subsidized, controlled and 
depurated from any heterodoxy.? 


So there is the current science, an image of the state political religion, 
Multicultural, relativistic and materialist.

....very few scientists....  

Sheldrake has done many successful experiments to empirically prove what he 
claims.  
The results are in his books. Some have been published in New Scientist.  

See http://www.sheldrake.org/Research/overview/
