My Beliefs [Trollville]
I'm new here and I just wanted to introduce myself. I do not adhere to the belief of Karma, any "perilous missions" to rescue humanity on behalf of a particular deity, superstitions, dogma, Law of Attraction, Ego, Satan, Christ, or God; yet I do believe in the existence of an After Life, reincarnation, and spirit beings. All the drama, chaos, and violence in the world can be attributed to the unawareness of one's own subjectivity. I later discovered that Albert Ellis, grandfather of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), illustrated this philosophy through his work so I am also a big fan of his.

Well, in THIS existence anecdotal evidence DOES exists
What on Earth are you talking about? What does that have to do with anything? The claim I made is that many people do not accept scientific evidence and instead prefer supernatural explanations. I base this claim not on personal experience but rather on the overwhelming preponderance of foolish beliefs such as creationism/conspiracy theories/ new age nonsense etc. ad infinitum. From a purely syntactical point of view, I can barely understand you. Is English your first language? Are you still in junior high?
You've made that claim one too many times in this thread alone
What claim? The claim that many people believe in supernatural garbage despite scientific proof? That's not anecdotally based. That comes from a whole truckload of scientific studies performed establishing the proliferation of certain belief systems.
I know u just want to win this argument but you are nowhere close. LOL.
What argument? An argument implies two people defending respective and opposing propositions. As you have not done this, we are not having an argument. Why do you always go back in the threads and fish out old posts instead of continuing with the current line of discussion.
"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.
The majority of people would readily accept scientific proof over supernatural
If only that were true.
I rest my case.
As the supernatural is not proof of anything, DG's statement is true.
The supernatural is an excuse created by lazy intellects so they can stop working..
Anecdotes exist - doesn't make them evidence.
