“Naturalism is the understanding that there is a single,
natural world as shown by science, and that we are
completely included in it. Naturalism holds that everything
we are and do is connected to the rest of the world
and derived from conditions that precede us and surround
us. Each of us is an unfolding natural process, and
every aspect of that process is caused, and is a cause
itself. So we are fully caused creatures, and seeing just
how we are caused gives us power and control, while
encouraging compassion and humility. By understanding
consciousness, choice, and even our highest capacities
as materially based, naturalism re-enchants the physical
world, allowing us to be at home in the universe. Naturalism
shows our full connection to the world and others, it
leads to an ethics of compassion, and it gives us far
greater control over our circumstances.”
