Metaphysical naturalism is a religion

by The Ethical Skeptic

To the Ethical Skeptic, enforced Metaphysical Naturalism (MN) is a religion, plain and simple.  It is not exactly the same thing as Atheism.  Atheism is the objection to personified deities, and sometimes includes adherence to MN tenets.  One can be an Atheist and still believe in Earthly alien visitation, for example.  Religious Metaphysical Naturalism however, is more accurately termed “Empty Set”-ism, or more commonly: Nihilism – the firmly held and unscientific belief that nothing resides outside the bounds of what I choose as natural, the sets of life, physical energy and material domains which are approved.
