That's far too tough a question for me, Glenn. I suppose I "could do what
he wants" by rejecting methodological naturalism as a foundation for
science. Pragmatically, I just do not believe that would work -- the
scientific enterprise would suffer (not if just I did it, of course, but
if all or most scientists did it).
When I go to a baseball game, I expect it to be played naturalistically
-- I do not expect supernaturalistic interventions such as in the film of
a few years ago, "Angels in the Outfield." Such things may or may not
make good films but can you imagine a scientist expecting a god to
intervene in his or her experiments or observations?
