Paranormal vs. Religion
If religion has never been proven true by the "facts" that lay in the holy books, how can someone say that the paranormal doesn't exist? If you believe in an almighty figure that created what we see, why is that a spirit or ghost or even a being from another world not possible?

Facts that are in the holy books?
Isn't much of the bible copied from previous stories?
So one not proven is proof of another?

Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

RE: Paranormal vs. Religion
If religion is a faith in something beyond human understanding. Then what is a belief in the paranormal, if not a religion?
We believe in what we cannot prove as a fact. Thus I do not believe in concrete, I know that it exists & I can prove in it's existence & the science behind it to any rational human.
The existence of God, Allah or Odin are no more provably factual than UFO's, Ghosts or Astral Projection. All may exist, or none may exist. That is why we believe rather than know & can prove.

We all believe in something greater than ourselves. Even if it's just the blind forces of chance. Ambassador G'Kar.
