    Beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation.

    Is my understanding, (from the on-line dictionary) which if it is to be taken as de facto, then the Big Bang was 'Paranormal'

    -if your talking about like ghosts and shadow people yea i think its bologna
    -they did a study referenced from wiki
    Electromagnetic fields
    Under the right conditions, electromagnetic fields can interfere with the functions of the Temporal lobe; creating altered states of perception in which auditory and visual hallucinations can occur[6].

    Using electromagnetic fields, researches have been able to recreate many of the experiences reported during paranormal encounters under laboratory conditions, including those of shadow people.[7][8] Researchers have also documented correlations between variances in naturally-occurring magnetic fields and areas where paranormal events have been reported.[9]
    -to be honest somethings can never be explained

    Well i am stupid and arrogant enough to say no. NO

    I have only had one paranormal experience. I saw santa claws when i was a kid, and i know it was him because my mum saw him as well. Nobody here can tell me that santa doesn't exist because I SAW HIM. Unless someone can give me 100%, undeniable proof that he doesn't exist, i will continue to tell everybody that he does.

    Nice idea Zelos, but this thread is going to go the same way as the Telekinesis/Psychokinesis Possible or not? thread. You can't prove that it doesn't exist so it must be true.

    I don't think it was Zelos's intention to prove if it existed, he only wanted to know who believed in it, i don't

    if youre born 1981 as your name says this cant be anything but a humoungus joke

    Well i am stupid and arrogant enough to say no. NO
    nope, youre smart enough to say no

    Nice idea Zelos, but this thread is going to go the same way as the Telekinesis/Psychokinesis Possible or not? thread. You can't prove that it doesn't exist so it must be true.
    well i just wanted to know how people belive since ive read some statistic wich i want confirmed.

    But science dont work "if you cant prove it doesnt exist it does exist" it works the very opposite way "if you cant prove it exist it doesnt exist"

    Well its a little strange, in our language you call it "kanappuwa aviddonawa", which means you make a table to move by various chants. This is used to find dead bodies (say if a person murdered someone) and to catch thieves. Well I can't or have no way of explaining this in science.

    Why would you need to investigate them all in order to form an opinion?
    If you found that one paranormal phenomena had some validity, surely that would merit saying you had a belief in the paranormal.
    On the conbtrary, if you had investigated one or two and found nothing significant this would nto allow you to say all paranormal phenomena were false.

    You are suggesting that as soon as you find something that 'looks close' you stop looking. I suggest you keep looking and only when none of all the possible scientific explanations provides a possible answer then and only then should you consider it 'paranormal'.

    you mean a oujiboard? like those with letters and you hold a thing with a hole in it and it moves around but maybe with a map instead? if so id be glad to give you a explination

    if i agreed more i wouldnt be able to agree more since my quote of agreeing would be filled

    I thought you were buddhist ?

    anyway....Yes I DO believe in paranormal activity. That is activity that does not have a high probability of happening in day to day life. Nothing can break the universal laws of nature though. I have had quite a few "paranormal" experiences in my life, but at the same time I believe they can and will be scientifically explained oneday.
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    I voted "Yes".
    Although I live my everyday life totally conected with science and facts I do not exclude the possibility of something "paranormal" going on arround us.
    Do you hear radio without a stereo? Do you see television without the proper device? So what guarantees you that there's nothing else arround us that can, under special conditions, manifestate itself through "paranormal activity"?!
    That's my point of view...

    if it follows the laws of physics it really isnt paranormal in anyway but rather normal stuff not known

    I am not suggesting that at all. If a hypothesis has some validity it is, ipso facto, valid. If the the topic under debate is whether or not there are any paranormal phenomena (and that is what we were talking about: it was certainly the contention I was dealing with) and we establish that there is at least one paranormal phenomena, then the case is made.
