natural or supernatural

Julian Sanchez, a contributing editor to Reason, posted a bit about something that’s of interest to me. The post in question deals with a sticky wicket…supernatural phenomenon. Most intelligent secular folks dismiss it as fantasy, while many religious folks (certainly not all) embrace it without question. To the extent that I’m neither religious nor secular, in any conventional sense, I find it difficult to articulate the nuances of my position. Regardless, Julian’s take and the accompanying comment thread is interesting, at least in my view. Additionally, Ape-snake has a thoughtful post that explores this subject in detail, from a scientific perspective.
