This paper provides a critical commentary on Slife and Reber’s paper entitled “Is there a pervasive implicit bias against theism in psychology?” Drawing upon A.N. Whitehead’s process philosophy, the paper challenges the bifurcation between naturalism and theism and suggests that religion be better conceived as world-loyalty than as supernaturalism.
