And if you can use empirical evidence to prove the existence of truth, the laws of logic, the reliability of our senses, the existence of numbers, and a whole host of other assumptions a scientist must make before they can even start doing science I'm all ears.If you can find a way to use faith or philosophy to tell us how dark matter works I am all ears
This isn't to be hostile against empiricism. I love empiricism, and find it to be absolutely essential to understanding the world and creating new awesome stuff. I just think it's limited to what it's limited to, and reason, logic, numbers, the reliability of our senses, etc. by their very nature can't be empirically proven, but are necessary for empiricism to properly work.
