← Refuting supernatural

Supernaturalism is nonsense because science has no limits. In fact, the idea of separating reality into naturalism and supernaturalism is itself nonsensical. It's like a child's drawing where a gap is left between land and sky. There are things that are real, and that is all we need to say.

Science clearly does have limits in the sense that there are matters which it cannot investigate. The issue of supernaturalism versus naturalism pertains to ontology not science. I agree with you btw that science adopts a methodological naturalism rather than philosophical naturalism.
