Testing worldviews (Part 2)

A second test for a worldview is that it doesn’t have contradictions. If something is logically inconsistent, it cannot be true. Refer to the dictionary definition of truth: “conformity to knowledge, fact, actuality, or logic.” For example, you can’t be a married bachelor. Or take Secular Humanism’s stance on ethics, or how to behave, which is moral relativism. Moral relativism says there are no absolutes. Notice the contradiction? To state that there are no absolutes is an absolute statement! If you have contradictions throughout your worldview, it is much like a crosswalk sign that tells you to walk and don’t walk at the same time. Which one is it?
