The Belief Engine

You may move this to the website board but after reading some of the posts and some of the debates here I thought I would throw this in as well, I stumbled across this article and found it to be pretty good....long but good

Alot of truth in its conception. Very clear and definitly worth reading .

Excellent article, glad you posted it! It kinda follows my philosophy that Truth is in the eye of the beholder, and has many different levels.

Or is it in our mind's capability to actually move things without touching them. Perhaps.

I think you might be misunderstanding the article's purpose. It's not trying to explain away anything. It's simply a discussion (well-thought-out and interestingly written, in my opinion, if perhaps a little brief) of how belief works.

I perceived the article to attribute any kind of paranormal activity as a function of the brain that triggers embedded beliefs and as quoted in the article:
"we can falsely attribute to the external world perceptions and experiences that are created within the brain. We are not always able to distinguish material originating in the brain from material from the outside world, and thus we can falsely attribute to the external world perceptions and experiences that are created within the brain. "
OK, now I am going back to oohing and aahing at orbs, I have to stop opening my mouth in these forums!

And I hope you didn't mean that last sentence too seriously; this forum is a better place to open your mouth than many others I could mention.
