I think that it is generally known that religious experiences are relatively uncommon, and usually happen to people who are already believers. If you have real evidence to contradict that then I'm ready to look at it.
quote: Yeah i do admit iam wrong it was never my intention to say i was right and everyone wrong, merely that its strange that belief without proof is a very real thing practiced by billions of people yet belief cant be factored into any kind of scientific method because the science police of the day say you cant
If course it isn't strange at all that science doesn't doesn't accept a method that doesn't work.

Which presumably is an irrational attempt at an attack on my position.
Argumentum ad populem holds an opinion to be true just because the majority hold it (regardless of WHY they hold it)
Peer review, at least in the ideal, consists of experts examining the methodology and reasoning of a paper,possibly suggesting revisions and the editors of the journal making a decision based on the reviews. A paper which fails to pass peer review can be edited or even submitted unchanged to another journal.
I really don't see that much in common between the two.

If it's about the idea that the majority opinion should be accepted as science then it SHOULD cover those questions, and a lot more. The fact that it doesn't is a strong indication that you're looking for an excuse to proclaim your belief as scientific, not a rational reason.
(Not that the gosh-wow stuff about complexity WOULD be a rational reason in the first place, but it's telling that even you don't seem to believe that it's a good argument)
