  1. In the end, arguments for God reflect Aquinas' superfluity argument which boomerangs on him with his five failed ways; Percy Bysshe Shelley states it thusly in effect: "To suppose that some existence beyond or,above them [ the descriptions-laws-of Nature [me]is to invent a second and superfluous hypotheis to account for what is already accounted for."
    It does no good to argue that that second one is metaphysical,because that is for what one is trying to get to-begged question.In essence, theists are reduced animists as Lamberth's reduced argument notes that they seek an unnecearrary explanantin as much as full animist do with their many spirits only with one supreme one.
    So, their sufficient reason is just superstition at work! Natural causes suffice as the sufficient reason!
