To briefly review: The three major components to naturalism are 1) scientism - the belief that scientific knowledge is either the only form of knowledge or a vastly superior form of knowledge; 2) the belief that the atomic theory of matter and the theory of evolution explain all events; and 3) the belief that non-physical things don't exist and that the world isn't here for any purpose.I used to subscribe to point one above. I still have great respect for the things science has given us. Number two I'm not addressing at the moment, and number three it seems to me piggybacks on number one too much. Some rejoinders to One and Three above, from yet another mind that's sharper than mine.
