Would naturalism insist 500 fair coins 100% heads on a table could not possibly emerge from a random process (like random coin flipping)? How about a buzzillion fair coins being 100% heads after an explosion from a terrorist event at a bank? If naturalism won’t exclude such improbable events (events statistically indistinguishable from miracles), then naturalism doesn’t exclude miracles.
It just seems to me, philosophical naturalism (sometimes equated with atheism) is just a statement that says statistically or physically improbable events can’t be attributable to God even though miracles are possible (like through a hypothetical multi-universe process). God is just rejected as an explanation as a matter of principle according certain definitions of naturalism.
This line of thinking was inspired by Niel DeGrasse Tyson arguing for the possibility of Godless Intelligent Design of the Universe. I’m not saying there is a right or wrong answer, but just I’m suggesting naturalism allows for the possibility of miracles (albeit godless ones). This could lead to Godless ID or Godless Special Creation theory.
The exceptional quality of life and the origin of life problem does not arise for ignorance (an argument from ignorance) but via proof by contradiction. If one argues the Rube Goldbergesque design of life is highly probable, it is contradicted by theory and empirical evidence. It would seem whether one believes in God or not, life is a miracle, or at least almost one (ala to Francis Crick).
One dictionary definition of Naturalism
1. (in art and literature) a style and theory of representation based on the accurate depiction of detail.
2. a philosophical viewpoint according to which everything arises from natural properties and causes, and supernatural or spiritual explanations are excluded or discounted.
