So a bunch credulity and backwards thinking is your argument ......Sad
So after you asked them, did they acknowledge that naturalism was the most reasonable explanation?

Because it's the only idea that qualifies as a theory in ascientific sense. It both explains the current status and makes predictions which can be falsified.

Your cretinism does neither.

When prosaic explanations fail to adequately explain observed phenomena, esoteric answers may be considered, but they need to explain the nuts and bolts of the phenomenon in question.
