Well good, we're all on the same page, some times I have a tendancy to react emotionally to your blunt posting peter, but then we are both used to each other's reactions lol
Hehe, I know I can be a bit blunt at times. But there's a pretty harmless, silly and loving guy behind these posts, just trying to raise some valid points and hopefully making people think once in a while, so don't take my occasionally blunt posting too personally.
Science is ever changing, and it will always be so. What some people experience as ghosts or spirits, or some other paranormal titled event may never be brought within the sites of science.
Paranormal beliefs will always stay right out of the reach of science, because that's exactly how they are designed. They persist because they can never be shown right or wrong, and because people love mysteries. The day science shows a paranormal belief to be real and describes it in detail, is the same day believers will lose interest in it, as it's no longer a mystery and has therefore become boring.
That said, many answers will probably be provided within the next couple of centuries in the fields of psychology and neuroscience on why people adhere to these kinds of beliefs.
Science can appear to have a very narrow band of vision, but I do want to say that it's not a negative thing.
Science goes where the evidence takes us. Therefore it will tune in on reality, and thereby remain narrow to people who find reality to be dull. But of all human inventions science potentially has the broadest scope, as it can go anywhere, depending on what reality turns out to be.
