I understand this. Let me rephrase: If a natural explanation cannot be given then a supernatural one may be assumed.

I'm not a spambot
No. Prove the existence of supernatural first, and then validate.

If a natural explanation cannot be given then... it probably doesn't exist.

A supernatural explanation may be assumed. I can live with that. A supernatural one MUST be assumed is foolish. Believe what you want. Teach your kids the same, as I can't stop you. But don't force me to believe your myths.

That's just what they said about the giant Scarab beetle pushing the Sun across the sky.

If a natural explanation cannot be given, that only means that a natural explanation has not yet been ascertained.
Scientists are not sitting complacently on their arse, as the dogmatists are.

Allah did it.

No, you don't understand this.
If a natural explanation cannot be given, then the phenomenon needs to be researched further.

You say "I don't know."

no. But nice try. Should the police blame elves for unsolved murders?

You FAIL!... at logic.

"no. But nice try. Should the police blame elves for unsolved murders?"
No, because the murder itself is a natural explanation for the people who died. There is a rational explanation for the cause of death, even if the perpetrator isn't known. I'm fairly certain this "davinci" is referring to events with no explainable cause, such as life from non-life. I mean, yes, evolution from lesser life-forms to greater life-forms is a natural explanation, but what natural explanation do we have for the absolute origin of species, the conception of the very first microscopic forms of life? Something such as this, for which we have no concrete explanation, allows itself certain interpretations, natural and supernatural.

"I don't know" means "I don't know" not "God did it."
