God of the Gaps Arguments

Abstract: It is often the case that arguments for the existence of God are branded with the label, “God of the Gaps Arguments.” In this essay, I explore what this charge amounts to and whether it must apply to any argument for a supernatural being. My aim is to offer some ways to develop some plausible principles to sort out when theistic arguments ought to be abandoned because of this charge and when they ought not be abandoned.
