Antony Garrard Newton Flew noted the presummption of naturalism which is that natural causes and explanations not only are sufficient but also necessary, primary and sufficient. As with miracles, this neither begs the question nor sandbags theists but is the mere demand for evidence.
Deist Miklos Jako in “Confronting Believers, states:“I don t understand the atheist’s irrational,myopic demand for proof for God.” Such is the mind-set of the con man who does not see the demand for evidence of legitimacy. Jako is here so irrational and myopic! Our demand is the same as the one of juries , crime investigators and such as historian Van A. Harvey notes in the current issue of Free Inquiry.
This presumption contradicts the sensus divinitatis of theologians who maintain one can indeed assume the miraculous deciding matters as the shallow Alvin Platinga does in his warrant that God is like other minds etc., basic.No, we cannot assume miralcles and He is not basic.As an ignostic, I cannot conceive of Him. Platinga once again uses faith which itself begs the question.
