Is there anything wrong with “God of the gaps” reasoning?

This is a copy of the paper which appears in International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Vol. 52, 2002, 129-142.


A common objection charge against those who defend the claim that God has acted to produce in nature events that would not otherwise occur is that such a claim commits the ‘God of the gaps’ fallacy. I argue that this charge is misguided and that in most instances gap arguments are a perfectly legitimate form of argument.
