Moving On XXXII, (The Misuse of the Senses)
The history of fingerprints in law enforcement shows one why many scientists have misjudged the purpose of the human senses. Patterns of arches, loops, and whorls on fingers and thumbs are ways of personal identification, because, without injury, they do not change with age. The Henry system became the first fingerprint system in 1901 by England’s Scotland Yard. Today, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) uses eight different patterns: a radial loop, ulnar loop, double loop, and central pocket loop, a plain arch and tented arch, a plain whorl, and an accidental. Other techniques, such as voiceprint and DNA, help to identify persons. However, these fingerprinting systems can never become infallible. This is why law enforcement must seek as much evidence as reason judges on a crime.
An inexperienced law enforcement agent can misuse a fingerprint, without reason, and put an innocent person in prison. Today’s inexperienced naturalists and logicians are also misusing biological ‘facts,’ without reason, to promote Darwin’s evolutionary theory.
Facts alone are as wrong as fingerprints alone and senses alone.
Promoting evolutionary theory in school, based on facts and logic alone, is no different than putting people in prison based only on fingerprints. Further, atheistic scientists and logicians cannot build truths based on senses and logic alone. All humans must learn that reason is our highest judge. It is unfortunate that today’s scientists are not taught the wide-open and two-step scientific proof that developed during the Renaissance Gottfried Leibniz was the first to chain logic to its limits by lifting ‘sufficient reason’ above ‘logical reason.’
It is also time to teach the true nature of reason in the schools of our children.
