The Paranormal: Skeptics and Believers

Today’s Quote:

When convention and science offer us no answers, might we not finally turn to the fantastic as a plausibility
~Fox Mulder

SchattenspielThe REAL question isn’t have you ever had an experience that couldn’t be explained by logic, math, or science? The answer, if you are to be truthful in your heart of hearts, is that you have.

The REAL question is what did you do when you were confronted with that situation? Did you get curious? Did you wonder and want to learn more?

Or, did you decide such an event could not possibly have been real? Did you start explaining it away to yourself or others? Did you figure out how it could fit into your existing world view and, if it failed to fit, discard the experience altogether?

That’s the real difference between the “believer” and the “skeptic”. The believer get curious, explores, and seeks understanding without ruling out the possibilities. A skeptic tends to decide up front that something is not scientifically possible – or more accurately palatable – and rejects the experience.

Most believers aren’t fools eager to be duped. They’ve had an experience or experiences convention can’t explain. They’ve been brave enough to explore that experience and be open to wherever the truth leads.

As Carl Sagan once said, “Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”

Keep your eyes on the skies!
