Question

Anonymous said: Your god doesn't explain any of that. The urge for god--that isn't universal by the way--is filled by other gods. Your "theory" explains nothing. Naturalism has explained all there is to explain thus far. All you're left with is the ignorance of science--what science has yet to answer. The Christian god doesn't address the questions anyway.

…If it’s not a universal urge, then what makes you think it has anything to do with evolution either?

Which questions does Naturalism answer that Christianity doesn’t? How life began? How the universe began? No, it doesn’t. Naturalism is a theory within science, but it isn’t science itself, and it isn’t certain that it’s the correct theory. You still haven’t addressed the actual question, you’re just repeating yourself that Naturalism is better.
