Excellent. I worry when I see Jerry Coyne saying (Why Evolution is True, pg 225) that the question of how we find our meaning, purpose, and moral guidance is outside the domain of science. But I don't think he really could mean that. Jerry, I am sure, uses antibiotics too, and his naturalism, I am also sure, does help him to formulate his own sense of meaning, purpose and morality.

Kevin should talk privately to his colleague, Eugenie, about how naturalism, as a theory, has been shown by science to be almost certainly true. She admitted that to me once, when I had the opportunity to speak to her after she gave a lecture; but she won't say so in public.
