"...everyone who problem-solves uses methodological naturalism. When we are faced with a puzzle or wish to accomplish some task, we switch to the mode of methodological naturalism and seek natural explanations or solutions. Scientists do this. Bankers do this. Farmers do this. In fact, just about everyone does this. Imagine if I went to my auto mechanic and he said: "Well, it might be the brakes or it might be an evil spirit."

Should I give equal weight to the "evil spirit" hypothesis? After all, someone probably believes it, this mechanic for one."
