God of the gaps

God of the gaps

: a deistic or pantheistic god which is meant to fill in the gaps of our current knowledge of the universe or our understanding of the natural laws

"God of the gaps" is a term used to describe observations of theological perspectives in which gaps in scientific knowledge are taken to be evidence or proof of God's existence. The term was invented by Christian theologians not to discredit theism but rather to point out the fallacy of relying on teleological arguments for God's existence.[1] Some use the phrase to refer to a form of the argument from ignorance fallacy.
