If we don’t know how something happened naturally atheists are quick to reply that we shouldn’t just say ‘God-did-it’. We call this the ‘God of the Gaps’ argument. That is, we shouldn’t just insert ‘God’ where gaps of scientific knowledge exist. I agree with them on this, but are there times where we are fair to infer ‘God-did-it’? Is every gap in our scientific knowledge always going to end up with a naturalistic answer?
If you are a naturalist the answer to that question is ‘yes’. Why? Because in order to maintain your worldview is has to be true. The ‘God of the Gaps’ argument, however, is based on what we don’t know. Can we infer that God is responsible based on what we do know scientifically about the universe? In this podcast I go over what the ‘God of the Gaps’ argument is and give arguments and evidence as to whether or not we can logically infer God in some instances.
