that old-time scientism

No one could live in a postmodern society.

For example, the postmodernist typically claims that literary texts have no meaning, and that meaning is just in the mind of the reader. But nobody can be a postmodernist when he reads the label on a medicine bottle or a box of rat poison. Clearly, we ignore the objective meaning of these texts at peril to our lives.

The whole idea of postmodernism is really a myth. What people are subjective and relativistic about is religion and ethics. But they are not really skeptical about science. And that’s not postmodernism – that’s nothing but the old-line modernism coming back in a fancy, new disguise. It’s positivism, which says that science gives us the truth, and ethics and religion are just expressions of personal taste and not factual statements.

William Lane Craig
