Re: what's wrong with naturalism?
In "Wisdom to Doubt..," fellow skeptic ,John L. Schellenberg argues that naturalism fails in depending on everchanging science, but he overstates the revolutions in science, which is the cornerstone of naturalism ,because it works.
In "Reason and Religion," Rem B. Edwards argues that naturalism begs the question against God in that it assumes it is the simpler theory,fully giving justice to reality.No, naturalism notes that the god-notion is not only more complex, but that very complexity requires ad hoc assumptions that naturalism clearly does not and also that God explains nothing as the ignostic-Ockham challenge shows.
Natural causes and explanations are the sufficient reason, contrary to Leibniz.Logic is the bane of theists. Fr. Griggs rests in his Socratic ignorance and humble naturalism.

God is that married bachelor and so cannot exist. No wonder He is ineffable!"Ignostic Morgan
