    Short reply, because the basis of your response is built on an incorrect understanding of the argument at the most basic level.

    False, the argument is that on naturalism such a force does not exist.

    That is simply not the assumption being expressed. In fact, it is the opposite.

    The first wall, as stated specifically relies on the assertion that you have repeatedly affirmed several times in this thread.

    Listen.. really.. really listen.
    Wall #1 does not say they do or should, it does not imply this reaction. in fact.. wall #1 IS THIS very statement.

    You clearly have not grasped what wall #1 is. Please go back and read it with these corrections in mind.
