More on Schaeffer...

... if you are interested, can be found on Mike Godfrey's blog - he has a series of posts on "He is There and He is Not Silent", which comes bundled in a trilogy with "The God who is There" and "Escape from Reason".

Included in this is part of the justification for Schaeffer's assertion that there are only a limited number of possible fundamental worldviews - regarding the origin of the universe, either:
- The universe has always existed; or
- The universe had an impersonal origin; or
- The universe had a personal origin.

Isn't this an exclusive set? And if it is, isn't it reasonable to think that these are in principle statements which may have scientific implications that could be tested?
