    $\begingroup$ The common name for this, appeal to nature fallacy, should get you started finding some resources based on which you perhaps can formulate a more specific question. In fact, simply including a reference to this term in your question would greatly improve it. It provides evidence there is a reason for asking this question. $\endgroup$
