This book seeks to make the case that philosophical naturalism serves as a better explanation of the range ofhuman experience than Judeo-Christian theism. 'Naturalism' is defined as the view that all substantial or concrete entities are physical in nature; further, the physical world does not exist for a purpose or reason. Avoiding the usual naturalist approach of criticizing theistic arguments, this study first defines the nature of explanation and what makes one explanation better than another before producing an argument that naturalismserves as a better explanation of all things.
