[Yasmin_discussions] The Plight of the Supernatural ...

Dear Yasminers,
I thank you for the opportunity to participate in this discussion. I find
the topic absorbing and of enormous interest. I have dealt with the issue
of whether scientific knowledge has limitations in discovering the nature
of reality (a loaded term no doubt), in my book on the nature of science. I
would like to ask Steven, doesn't an attack on the concept of the
supernatural constitute an attack on the transcendent as well? or does he
make such a distinction?
