Sorry for bumping in Forgiven, but I have a question....what signifies a materialist?
I have always thought that materialists were the people who during the late 19:th century thought that materia had always existed and that there was no beginning.
But after he discovery of the Big Bang, that stagnant worldview was replaced by a universe with a beginning that was undefined, or at its peak based upon axioms.
What defines a materialist in the sense you are using the word and can a religious person be a materialist too?
