Naturalism is a worldview grounded in a scientific, evidence-based understanding of the universe and our place in it. Science and critical thinking in public education and public discourse should replace non-empirical justifications for beliefs. In advocating science, naturalism supports the teaching of cosmology and evolution as essential elements of the epic story of life, in the universe and here on earth.

A key point of this section is to demonstrate that science itself doesn't presume naturalism, rather naturalism is a well-supported hypothesis given scientific methods of deciding what's true.
