Biblical Keys for Discerning True and False Prophets/Considering Joseph Smith/Paradigm debate/Deciding
Deciding “Which Problems are more significant to have solved?”
While there are no rules for deciding even which “problems are more significant to have solved,” Kuhn often saw these issues as prominent:
- Issues for Fundamental Generalizations (Kuhn, 79)
- Anomaly Related to Specific Practical Applications (Kuhn, 82)
- Research Puzzles That Currently Resist Solution (Kuhn, 82)
One of the reasons I compiled these references is that the Bible tests for prophets should be high on the list of problems that are most significant to have solved. They provide fundamental generalizations, define practical applications, and generate research puzzles.
