Science is a materialist system, like it or not. Either you claim that minds
are not objects of scientific study (and there's still plenty of room for
materialist work here) or you claim that science must accept a new
phlogistum (sp?) without it making any predictions, which is bad form in
science. This is why materialist explanations can get away with not bringing
evidence yet, they don't possit any extra stuff.
