You ask,

"What is the reason for DNists to believe that only natural laws operate in biological processes?"

It isn't so much that they "believe" this. It is only that it's difficult to do science if you have to incorporate a "theory of miracles" or some other supernatural element.

Re: Re-Sarah(446): supernatural factors embedded in the observed facts
Well at least you seem to be agreeing that we are descended from earlier, different life forms (early mammals, amphibians, fish, etc.).

That's a start.
