No. Wallace rejected Scripture, judgment, and hence redemption or the need for a redeemer. Nevertheless, Wallace was sympathetic to the theistic position generally and was not hostile to Christian spirituality. His whole point in writing Man’s Place in the Universe and The World of Life was to reconcile science and religion against rank materialism.
 Property dualism holds that nonphysical or things do not exist (e.g. immaterial souls which make organisms conscious, vitalist 'life forces' which make organisms alive as opposed to inanimate, and deities and other 'spiritual' beings), but that there are nonphysical of physical matter. Among this class of nonphysical properties are what we call mental states, and they are produced by physical brains. For the property dualist, only physical substances exist, but these physical 'things' can have physical or nonphysical properties. Consciousness, it is argued, is a nonphysical property of the brain because it doesn't have properties commonly associated with physical phenomena (e.g. mass, shape, size, density, electric charge, temperature, position in space, etc).
It is to be hoped that physicists, mathematicians, chemists, biologists, engineers, theologians, economists, historians, poets, philosophers, metaphysicians and other specialisms can somehow pool their talents to allow Intellectual, Materialistic, Spiritual and Ethnic Human Civilisation every chance of future progress.
Tig, David, and Kyle start off the show with Kyle’s story about his TV, Tig’s house hunting, and discussion about gluten and Celiac. Then, Australian musician/actor/writer Tim Minchin joins the crew for an excellent discussion about existence, materialism, the usefulness of multivitamins, spirituality, consciousness, and they go deep into some interesting concepts like the power of positive thinking and what happens after death.
Thirdly and last, materialism has always assumed that life is wholly the product of natural processes. All human thought and feeling emerges from the nonliving, inorganic matrix of physical nature and ends at death. Lucretius believed that thoughts and feelings were literally made up of a film of very fine atoms that peeled away from objects and recombined in the brain. D'Holbach believed that thoughts and feelings were the end product of chains of physical causation rooted in atomic motion. Buechner believed that thoughts and feelings were electrical impulses somehow shaped by the human nervous system into coherent patterns. Moreover, though it's not widely known, Lucretius and d'Holbach both theorized that organic life evolved from inorganic matter, though it was not until Buechner's championing of Darwinian theory that materialism could justify the theory scientifically.
Today we think about spiritualism in moderate terms. We aim to live holistically, trying to satisfy both our spiritual and material needs, accepting what is being given to us by Nature or God, and without subjecting ourselves to the extremities of pain and pleasure. This is more or less a compromise of sorts, what some people prefer to call as spiritual materialism, which does not guarantee liberation but gives you an ability to withstand the pressures of life with greater understanding and patience. In todayâs world, you may consider yourself a spiritual person, if you go beyond the immediate needs and concerns of your mind and body and search for answers about your existence and your relationship with the world around you. You are spiritual, if you lead a contemplative life, without abandoning your social and family responsibilities. You are spiritual, if you believe that you are a spiritual entity and identify yourself primarily with your inner soul or self, instead of your mind and body. From The Awakened Life by Jayaram V
Of course these assumptions implied, secondly, the lack of any governance or management of the universe by any sort of transcendental intelligence. From the start, materialism has been implicitly atheistic, though its atheistic implications were not fully spelled out before d'Holbach did so in his . Materialism has always viewed atheism merely as a necessary consequence of its premises, not as a philosophically important end in itself. Supernatural gods, spiritual deities, or immaterial moralizers could obviously not be taken seriously, or for that matter even imagined to exist, in the materialist hypothesis.
Some of the Majors have been renamed: Death is Transition and The Devil is Materialism. I don’t mind this as I do work with the Connolly Deck at times, which also uses the same names. In fact, the new names tends to make the deck less scary to people who may be somewhat tarot-phobic.
