The Big War

"... the big war is not between evolution and creationism, but between naturalism and supernaturalism." -Richard Dawkins

Hmm... I think you found something over which Dawkins and I actually agree (almost [smile]).

I'm not sure I completely agree that the split is between natural/supernatural (though I get where he's coming from) because I think the discussion can start between naturalism and "something else" that is beyond the realm of naturalism. As one professor pointed out: If God exists in your worldview, then there's nothing extra that you're adding to get to the "supernatural" ...thus, it's not really all that otherworldly.

Can you be more specific, please? Who is the "one professor"?
