Yet, lately, Traste has proposed a new hypothesis to explain my belief system: Bluejay is a Muslim who believes in Intelligent Design!

Re: RAZD and Bluegenes - Peanut Gallery
Hey brutha oni - long time no see!!
Lets be honest and admit "supernatural" means nothing at all.
If a human saw a being that had miraculous powers, it would still be here in our reality and thus natural, not supernatural.
I was going to post something similiar in the Supernatural Hypothesis thread yesterday, but didn't want to further obfuscate jar's points to Straggler.
Great minds think alike, huh .. lol

I'm not here to mock or condemn what you believe, tho my intentions are no less than to tickle your thinker.
If those in first century CE had known what these words mean ... 'I want and desire mercy, not sacrifice'
They surely would not have murdered the innocent; why trust what I say, when you can learn for yourself?
Think for yourself.

Hi stragg - hope things are well on your side of the pond ..

... how are we able to distinguish between explanations for as yet unknowns (e.g. the origins of the universe) that are natural and those that are supernatural?
I am curious has to why - or better yet, how, one should attempt to make a distinction between that which is unknown within a natural context and that which is non-evidently 'supernatural'. I mean, are they not both undefined to a degree that the distinctions which can be made are mostly superfluous?
For example, fire and lightning have both taken on supernatural connotations within indigenous cultures, and so, it seems in a larger context what you present as 'yet unknowns (e.g. the origins of the universe) that are natural' and 'yet to be explained supernatural' occurences are really one in the same ..
It appears the term 'supernatural' may simply be a cheap way to express that our scientific culture has yet to satisfactorily define a certain thing, no??
