Nice, concise summary of the problem for materialism. It saws off the branch it is sitting on.




I think this was covered years ago here, but materialism is not the same as determinism. If one claims materialism to be untrue, then one must make some testable claims about the existence of something which is not matter/energy. I think the existence of random subatomic events is enough to eliminate determinism.
