I currently believe naturalistic non-design explains the apparent fine-tuning of our universe, and most people who disagree with me defend a supernatural design hypothesis.

On the first definition of pornography as sexually explicit material, all such material would count as pornography, insofar as it is sexually explicit. It seems to me that we do not need to choose between these different definitions, for all of them capture something of the term's everyday use.
