How Developments in 20th Century Mathematics Show That Materialism is Wrong

Date recorded: 21 May 2019 | Speaker: Charles White | Event: ELF Science Network


One of the most important developments in 20th century mathematics is Kurt Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem. It shows that there will always be true mathematical statements that no system will be able prove. Since all computers “think” by using mathematical systems, there are some problems that people can solve that even an infinite computer cannot. Because peoples’ minds can do things computers cannot do, and because minds are immaterial, materialism, which says that nothing immaterial exists, is wrong.
