Gullible people will embrace anything that will seemingly satisfy this security instinct, no matter how far-fetched. The charlatans of the supernatural then exploit this intellectual deficiency. The human emotional need for religion and the paranormal is rooted in insecurity and the fear of uncertainty. Life is inherently uncertain. Wild flights of fancy into the land of mirages does not make it less so..

The arena of the paranormal is very attractive to many persons, practitioners and followers alike, because real science can be difficult to pursue and places demands on the rational mind. Real science requires hard evidence, demonstrable repeatability and logical thought processes.

Pseudo-science takes the easy route in explaining the complexities of human existence. Pseudo-science disregards any need for independent proof. Pseudo-science is easier to invent and to understand because it replaces facts and logic with flimflam, flights of fancy, and wishful thinking.

One of the favorite statements of the advocates of the paranormal is their contention that science does not have the ultimate answers to the mysteries of the universe. Therefore, the say, science cannot be certain of anything; it cannot know anything as a certainty. They then conclude that, since science does not know everything, science knows nothing.

Thus, it becomes the allure and the premise of the paranormal that nothing is impossible and therefore anything is possible. Any intelligent human being recognizes these apparently logical statements as illogical non-sequiturs.

Although science does not yet have all the answers, and cheerfully admits this fact, science has become a vast store of knowledge. We certainly have more knowledge that is factual and we understand infinitely more about the universe than Aristotle did 2500 years ago. Nobody can deny the fact that human knowledge has increased exponentially since Ancient Greece. We have acquired a tremendous base of scientific knowledge as far as the ordinary affairs of man are concerned. Nobody is implying that science knows everything.

Science may not know the ultimate secrets of the universe but, at the beginning of the third millennium, we come ever closer to it. In any case, the unanswered questions pertaining to the ultimate nature of the universe are immaterial to the conduct of human affairs.

We can only answer questions regarding the ultimate nature of the universe by responding that science does not know the answers at this time. Any such questions are irrelevant and immaterial to human affairs and the attainment of human happiness. String Theory, Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are certainly of no concern to our pursuit of a fulfilling and happy life.

The world of the paranormal is the world of things that go thump in the night, fantastic stories addressed to intellectually challenged minds. The supernatural is an arena where there is no need to prove anything; it is a world without objective evidence. The Paranormal has only one design: To deceive and to prey on the gullible.
