Oh, I thought it was Dawkins at first...
Ok, the huge problem there is with this argumentation (of which I read some lines, but it's most predictable) is that it dates back to the Middle Ages of the West whom they, scientism-ists, positivists, so greatly abhor etc.... It's a problem of false gnosiology
, method of obtaining knowledge. And the conclusion they can't avoid to step into is that reality is irrational.
Here, in Greece, some scientism-ists(I mean, followers of the scientism theory and philosophy) have even proceeded to say that what they've been told about the miracles, eg., that Elders have made, or about healing sacred water etc., is this, it's irrational! Which means, as we sometimes say it here, "if the theory does not coincide with/fit reality, the worst for the reality"!
Maybe I'll come back to this. We shouldn't omit to say that Heresy of the Occident has a lot to do with this nonsense. For example, when Hawking said "then, we should know the mind of God", it was like a secularised Thomas d'Aquin. The were using(claiming to use) the same instrument: mind/brain!
