why do the majority of folks frown on the possibility of a materialist existance.

When seeing debates roll on about materialism vs immortal soul vs biblical teachings I've noticed most folks talk about materialism as if material is unworthy. What gives you that preconception especially when we don't fully understand or know everything about the physical realm? I would really appreciate your input, knowledge and ideas on the matter.

      I think that you mistook the question. This is not about "materialist" as in "money, money, money," but about "materialism" as in there not being spirits and such stuff.
