Added The Atrocity of Frosty (2007) by Daniel June to the Secular Web Kiosk.

Added An Illusion of Harmony: Science And Religion in Islam (2007) by Taner Edis to the Secular Web Bookstore.

"Taner Edis makes a compelling case that classical Islamic thought cannot accommodate a modern scientific culture whose basis is experimentation, quantification, and prediction. He exposes the vacuity of faith-based science using a range of examples. But Edis does not rule out an eventual reinterpretation of Muslim theology that will, as in other world religions, eventually allow science and Islam to go their own separate ways."

More simply, it is the denial of the existence of supernatural causes. In rejecting the reality of supernatural events, forces, or entities, naturalism is the antithesis of supernaturalism.
