I agree perfectly with you. But this post of yours either doesn't adress my core "question" or I am not able to follow it from your post.May be I have not made my point clear enough.

Scientific investigations tell us:
"natural laws explain all observed phenomena."

Its follows , thus , from its 'philosophy':
"no room for supernatural beings to explain the observed phenomena."

All I wanted to confirm this from the very first post (firstly, in a scattered and general form and then specifically and now being most precise)is that :
The investigation of a God or NO God is inside the sphere of the philosophy of science where the philosophy of science is non-scientific (doesn't insists on the use 'scientific method').Thus science doesn't tell us anything about Gods. But , of course , it amplies (on the basis of so-called common sense or any other system of logic/belief)that Gods are not needed to 'run' the phenomena.

The answers to following questions will explain everything and will be the conclusions:

1. Is 'philosophy of science' a science? (or what is philosophy of science ,in brief?)

2. Which of the above will be active when God(s) are proved or disproved ?

Note: I want to know all this because science is often blamed (and consequently the scientific method) in explaining God(s) which infact is wrong. If there is any problem at all , the problem is in our philosophy (ie we'll have to change it to make room for God but of course, why??? so you have the right philosophy, indeed)
