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

Parsimony.

The reason, for example, that we don’t waste time checking that pink pixies aren’t responsible for putting dew on the grass at nighttime.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
