I don't understand your comments about "George Murphy's views on
methodological naturalism" being "religion."

Based on George's comments, his view of MN seems to be pretty
standard, and is the way that we we do science. (And I would argue
that this is the way that we SHOULD do science.) It is
METHODOLOGICAL, not METAPHYSICAL naturalism. It makes no religious
claims at all, and keeps science neutral with respect to religion.

What am I missing?
