The Disenchanted Naturalist’s Guide to Reality

This 2009 piece by Alex Rosenberg is a succinct, blow-by-blow account of a scientistic worldview that compels a response no matter where you fall on the philosophical spectrum. Rosenberg outlines how science has brought about disenchantment with:

    1. Life’s persistent questions.

    2. The nature of reality.

    3. The purpose of The universe.

    4. The mechanisms of evolution

    5. Morality

    6. The nature of our minds.

    7. Consciousness itself.

    8. Our sense of history.

The post includes responses from Joel Marks, Brian Lieter, Michael McKenna, Richard Carrier, and Larry Laudan. All of which are worth reading.
