A New Logical Fallacy:

The Naturalistic Phenomenon Fallacy;

1. Asserting that a particular thing must be of a purely natural origin/cause without any supporting scientific based inferences or evidence. (Holding a purely naturalistic default position as "more likey" without any vaild inferences or any actual evidence of support.)

2. Claiming that something must have a natural cause or natural origin only because it seems, looks or acts natural, while not requiring further explanation such as, "by what actual natural means?" Asserting something is a natural phenomenon without an explanation of how this natural phenomenon came to be in a natural way.

3. Any hypothesis or theory that concludes something is of natural origin or naturally caused but this conclusion is solely supported or solely based on naturalistic presuppositions.
