Science and Making Sense

I was reading a book just bit earlier, Darwinian Detectives: Revealing the Natural History of Genes and Genomes. From the preface:

Ultimately, science is about making sense of the universe and its parts.

I think that the claim that methodological naturalism is the only way to make sense of the universe and its parts introduces something anti-science into science.

Methodological naturalism has been discussed as nasueum here, and this post adds nothing new. This thread will close in 1 hr unless something new, over what has already been discussed, can be added to the conversation.

I reccomend using the search function of the forum to see what has been discussed already. Engage with prior thought here to ensure something non repetitive is being offered here.
