The legal system should return to the reasonableness of biblical standards.

by Jen Foster

In law, the relationship between criminal intent and culpability is convoluted and inconsistent because the justice system has chosen dubious psychological assumptions to undergird its precedents and statutes. A new framework, scientism, has emerged which attempts to standardize these sometimes contradictory judicial laws through breakthroughs in neuroscience. But rather than justifying the psychological assumptions, comprehensive neuroscience actually requires the justice system to adopt a more biblical framework for culpability in criminal intent.  Psychology has always suffered in the eyes of the law from a lack of hard science. As scientism has emerged as society’s new favorite idol, neuroscience offers psychology a much-needed justification for diminished moral culpability. Unfortunately for psychology, it is only by misrepresenting and twisting facts that they gain scientific strength for their position.
