Physics website poll on the supernatural
    #4302622 - 06/16/05 06:51 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Do you believe in the supernatural?

46% said yes.

Seems superstition will be here for many more millenium even though every single claim that was able to be tested, has failed to show anything out of the ordinary.

First of all, what kind of stupid question is that?
What do they mean by supernatural?

Second, if they mean stuff like ghosts, why would they be supernatural? My answer would be no even If I believed in ghots

third. Swami, there is no way of telling which one of use are superstitious and which ones are not

Poor science = Laughing at the supernatural thus creating a stigma
Good science = Objectively and unbiasedly analysing the evidence

Why is science so scared of entering these areas.

How do you skeptics claim a lack of scientific evidence when theres a lack of scientific testing!

The stigma alone can explain why no proof of ghosts,ufo's etc is avaiable!

Wasting time and energy on meaningless pursuits is bad, yes.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Very subjective. I doubt you would be able to determine ultimately what is and what is not a "meaningless pursuit". Who knows someone exploring the "supernatural" may as a by product make a great discovery that benefits the world.

Now, I don't believe anything can be supernatural. It's all natural.

It's an opinion.

Expending effort on something claimed that has never been demonstrated in all of history, or worse, on something that has been thoroughly and demonstrably debunked (see astrology) is a meaningless pursuit.

I believe in the superiority of the totality of nature over any subset, and in it's unknown qualities as well as it's known qualities.

Serious question: Can you give me an example of what you would accept as proof of the non-existence of the supernatural.

Well I see it as a form of protection, he says he waits for proof that something does not exist, which means nobody can ever chalenge his beliefs because non-existence can not be proven
