← Refuting supernatural

GENERICGUY- in a bid to refute supernatural claims- affirms that " Nothing can both exist and be outside of nature, as nature is the sum of everything in existence." I am at loss to understand how this refutes supernaturalism since it merely amounts to defining supernaturalism out of existence; it furthermore commits the fallacy of begging the question since it turns out that an argument which is supposed to show that supernaturalism is impossible depends on a premise which rules out supernaturalism from the outset!
