Exposing Sarah Palin for the fool that she is. Palin is against science. She's for the teaching of creationism. She doesn't think humans have much to do with global warming. Picturing her as vice-president of the United States: too irrationally scary to contemplate.
The natural world is, naturally, all that is known to exist. "Materialists" are better termed "naturalists." Science knows that matter isn't just solid objects, stuff you can knock your fist on. It's also energy, space and time, quantum tremblings far beyond our ability to sense with even the most powerful instruments. There's plenty of room for pondering the Big Questions of Life in naturalism.
Science cannot say, “and then a miracle happens.” There is no way to do an experiment or make an observation that can test a miracle. Miracles, by definition, defy natural forces or explanations. They cannot be constrained, which is a necessary feature of any hypothesis that can be falsified.
