Write 3 page essay on the topic Is Ham correct that the connection between science and naturalism is ‘arbitrary’.
Ham promotes the view that evolutionists are at fault because they outlaw what is supernatural and beyond explanation. They claim that anything which cannot be proven by science is unbelievable. This is how they deny the presence of supernaturalism in this world. There are many supernatural causes which cannot be explained by science, but that does not mean they are not real. Science rules out supernatural causes because it is a field which nurtures on the food of observations. However, anything not observable like historical science should be separated from the science that is observable. How can Billy Nye claim that the earth is 4.5 billion years old without being present through the course of billions of years to observe one species evolve from another? This suggests that speculation forms the bedrock of evolution which is quite ironical since Nye seems to champion the importance of observations and science.

Scientific method is based on observations and that makes science, but pseudoscience is only a collection of beliefs and speculations thought to be based on scientific method. Thagard (1978) also argues that science should be separated from pseudoscience. There is a wide popularity of pseudoscience presently which should be condemned.
The relationship between science and naturalism is also man-made or arbitrary because confirmations for any theory or philosophy can be found anywhere. This means that the relationship between science and naturalism is not based on some concrete system, rather it is arbitrary. “It is easy to obtain confirmations, or verifications, for nearly every theory” (Popper 1957). Both Ham and Nye have worked for years to make the complex subject of origins understandable to the world. However, despite
