    So literally everything that exists is natural then? I was using the word natural in the sense of "as intended by nature". So a person having six fingers isn't natural, that isn't to say it doesn't occur in nature, but that it isn't what is supposed to happen in nature.

    I'm not saying my definition is right and yours is wrong, but surely in this context mine is the more appropriate, otherwise the question is pointless because the answer will always be, as you have shown, "no, that's natural"?
    Our definitions of 'natural' are clearly different.

    Yours is a more colloquial term - I don't know of a dictionary that defines it as what you described - whereas I am using the actual definition.

    I don't know what the OP intended 'natural' to mean, but I only understand words and phrases to mean their real definitions, except when a phrase is only known in a colloquial context.
