Please present good reasons for philosophical naturalism

philosophical naturalism helds, that the natural world is all there exists. Please present good reasons for this world view, and why you think it provides the best explanation for our existence. I am asking for positive arguments, not arguments like : the universe is all there is, because the bible is not compelling , because there is no evidence for God etc. I am asking for arguments, that make philosophical naturalism stand by its own.

Intellectually honest people don’t try to prove that which cannot be proven. You want us to prove that something undefined doesn’t exist?

Ask me to prove that you are a partially-aborted asshole baby that barely escaped a flush down the toilet.

Good reasons? Because I can see nature and the natural world. Next.

A theist is just an atheist with a space in it.

I have not asked for proves, but for evidence.

No. Read my post again, and you will understand that God is not into the game.

According to your logic, whatever you can see, has no cause ??

The natural world is the only 'world' that has an observable and repeatedly demonstrable effect on my being.

Oh, proves! Not Evidence! Semantics for idiots, eh? Is this a new board game in your mental ward?

Yes, I read your post again. You are still an imbecile. Now read my post again. I said nothing of any imaginary gods. You asked for someone to demonstrate that the “natural world” is all that exists. As opposed to what, dimwit? Your premise seems to be, if I am translating your fluent idiocy correctly, that some undefined thing besides physical reality exists. Physical reality exists. Look around you! There it is! Alright, I’ve demonstrated the existence of physical reality. Is anything else required for the existence of physical reality? Did you have a positive assertion that you wanted to make? Surely, even a slobbering dolt like you does not expect anyone here to try to prove a negative.

I don't think the brain damage was recent.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Since you are demonstrating not enough intelligence and education to adress the issues, but think insulting the counterpart is necessary, you need to find people of your level to behave as kids in the playyard.

proves?


i think he meant probes.
as in the anal kind.

i'm baaaack! fixed my old puter!

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.
