In reality, science and supernatural religion are totally incompatible and contradictory, and this incompatibility cannot be resolved by separating the two because their fields of application inevitably overlap. Thus, the NOMA hypothesis is clearly false.

"Whenever the claim is made that science or religion can only explore some specified domain, or can only ask some restricted sort of questions, and so forth, we are probably justified in suspecting that an oversimplification and arbitrary limitation is likely to be involved."

* nonbelief (n.)

In a society in which the dominant religions are all theistic or deistic, the terms atheism and nonbelief are practically synonymous. (There may be people who believe in no god(s) but nevertheless hold supernatural beliefs—involving UFOs for example—but their number is not significant.)


* nonbeliever (n.)

Every nonbeliever is an atheist. In a society in which the dominant religions are all theistic or deistic, the terms atheist and nonbeliever are practically synonymous. (There may be people who believe in no god(s) but nevertheless hold supernatural beliefs—involving UFOs for example—but their number is not significant.)
