Article: Is Naturalism a Simpler Explanation than Theism? by Paul Copan

In this featured article, philosopher Paul Copan considers whether naturalism or theism better accounts for key features of our universe and key aspects of our human experience.

He writes:

"Naturalism is “simpler” in that it involves fewer entities within its system. But that does not help in accounting for the universe, its major features, and key aspects of human experience. To get rid of God means losing significant explanatory power. A theistic context helps us make sense of many important characteristics of the created order."

Courage and Godspeed,
