Dogma, Heresy, and the Religion of Science: Is it Time for a Reformation of Empiricism? – Amy Lewis – April 14, 2017

Abstract

Science is a system of inquiry and knowledge production that, through a process of observation and experiment, “democratizes” the study of the physical and natural world. Although science represents a significant advance over previous knowledge systems, limitations in its capacity to cope with some types of observable phenomena is becoming increasingly apparent. The purpose of this talk is to consider and define the limits of science, and to propose the need for an alternate and complimentary system of inquiry. Such a system must embody a greater capacity to cope with the presence of free will, multiple dimensions, and other phenomena that fall outside the limits of the 3-dimensional experiment. We will ensure a spirited opportunity for discussion.

She has given numerous lectures on the philosophy of science, and is both personally and professionally interested in better understanding the potentials and limitations of the scientific process. Amy is an excellent follow-up to our previous speaker, Don Daniels, because she has had her own direct ET experiences that confirm a wider reality.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 
 
The results of our member survey indicated a preference to maintain our regular meeting time of 11:00 AM on Fridays. Moving to a lighter fare for food service was clearly preferred. Therefore, we will now provide a new simplified menu of tea, coffee and Hors D’oeuvres including gluten free and vegetarian options. We will meet in the Aspen Leaf room this time.
 

This lighter food service will reduce the fee to $17 for everyone, and will eliminate the need to RSVP To Paul Sperry.
