All it means, is that our limited science hasn't been able to explain it yet, if it's even tried.







Well stated my post is reffered to this dimension in wich we can see just the light bodies

Don't you agree with me in saying that a bunch of Italians have done the trick, now look at yourself in the mirror and tell me who is the ordinary person ...


All the best to you nice lady..do not forget to have fun any time it appear

Bigfoot? Telekenisis? Reincarnation? Or all of the above?...or, you mention religion, is that the topic?

If your intention is the all inclusive topic of "paranormal" including religion (the belief in a supreme being) well I would simply say the you have to qualify it - yes some paranormal beliefs are just silly and you can see it in this forum - claiming dust particles caught on camera are supernatural "orbs", claiming that light malfunctions have a supernatural origin, and I am not even going to discuss bigfoot. Some of it - religion for instance, takes that individual leap of faith, but that's OK. You will lose that mission because it's an existential meaning of life question, an inward struggle for understanding that extends past believing in the Loch Ness Monster. Your best bet is to remove religion from your mission.

Aliens? Well I want to believe myself and although pseudoscience has taken over the field of visits by aliens on earth, 99% of which is garbage, there is that 1% that makes you go "hmmm". Besides that, we cannot ignore that the just about every legitimate scientist in the field agrees that life on other planets is almost a certainty (weather we or they will ever be able to contact us is another matter).

You mention media (TV and movies) - indeed that's an issue and once again you see that every day in this forum in terms of "confirmation bias". Yeah, people watch "The Exorcist" and see possessions everywhere. We can still blame the old 70's movie "The Reincarnation of Peter Proud" and other movies for bringing in the eastern concept of reincarnation (which has absolutely nothing to do with remembering that you were once a countess 300 years ago) into some new-age western pop concept of reincarnation.





Hi, you made a very rational synthesis, but as any rational concept it follows a path bound by the cognitive elements that the mind elaborates through experience, my words are not new on the human topics already Eraclito defined the lived in continuous becoming, today the reality as it is perceived is completely wrong in itself, it's an imposition, we humans are aliens our evolution has no plausible explanations if not the intervention of a superior... then alien wisdom.
in answer to your question I do not believe in the impositions of thought that derive from religious concepts.

Are you a former military officer?

Can't say about your situation, but many partially furred, variously garbed, electrically powered, food cooking, water filled, gas processing meat bags inhabited by sentient nondimensional beings have no problem with perceiving that which does not register on instruments atuned to this space-time continuum.

Obviously, one who disbelieves in such existence will never perceive it, since it is entirely based on a thought they refuse to accept.
However, if told "Do not think about elephants," invariably does trigger that very thought.

I suppose denialists will discover the truth, one way or the other. Or meet oblivion.

HEDGING YOUR BETS

Remember, try to be the kind of person you’d prefer to spend eternity with, rather than avoid. Either way, you make your own heaven or hell. Right now and later.

The belief in the paranormal/superstition is simply a human condition to rationalize, or sometimes in an attempt to influence, random and unlikely events, ironically by using an irrational explanation (ghosts, aliens, etc.). It's existed since the dawn of man and continues to exist.
It's a psychological need in humans - 1.) An attempt to give greater meaning to an event that otherwise happens randomly and without apparent purpose, 2.) An attempt to exert control over these events, or at least the belief that one can change events.
It's quite fascinating to review some of the threads on this forum to see what is attributed to the paranormal. Harmless and amusing in most cases, disturbing in some cases.

However I still think that putting religion into the scope of your "mission" is a mistake. It's much too personal and emotional and goes way beyond the hobbiest fascination with the occult or UFOs, and there is a dedicated forum for religion elsewhere in CityData.

Actually numbers 1) and 2) of your post are basically part of the definition of religion, so saying that including religion is a bridge too far is a contradiction.
