    Of course every thing has an explanation…. I think you mean “Every thing has a potential explanation” if it remains currently unexplained. That would be my viewpoint. Science will increase our understanding of the unexplained over time until a consensus derived theory is attained. Then it becomes explained. But the theist is compelled to offer their God as the explanation. “God only knows”. Magical Thinking puts God in the square one of any journey of discovery if you are a theist. It has to do this. It is the unrelenting advances of Science that has removed Chemistry, Cosmology, Physics, Biology, even Morality from the religious realm. Our knowledge has advanced by Free Thinking and not by Faith. 400 years ago god was the answer to almost everything. Now god is of no value as an answer to anything that would advance us further. What new discoveries has any religion brought to the world recently that Science has not provided a better answer for? Are these scientists using natural materials to detect supernatural entities?

    There is radiation, light and radio waves  and human illness associate with the phenomenon observed on Ranch, moreover there have been livestock mutilations and giant wolves observed at night. This is not rare. Giant wolves ,big foot and livestock mutilations have been observed elsewhere. Due to the nightmarish observation by credible witness I would side with intelligent non-baryonic entities having a good time with humanity toward ill ends.

    Michael when you encounter something that you cannot explain you claim it is supernatural. Why not say “we don’t yet know”? Your are engaging in magical thinking. Science is deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to the supernatural. Yes. Absolutely correct. This is because there is nothing supernatural. Again this is magical thinking, a legacy of our species past that was mired in ignorance and kept that way for centuries because anyone who suggested differently was endangering their own life because Christians were likely to kill or imprison them. There is nothing supernatural to be investigated, only unknown natural phenomena awaiting explanation. But why are Christians even concerned that Science has not yet provided an answer. When Science has not yet answered it they claim their God is behind it. When Science improves our understanding of a phenomenon they then claim their God is even more amazing to have created it thus. So why do they bother looking for an answer when it is always their “God-did-it” anyway. For most of our species existence we trembled at the power of the gods when thunder and lightening were seen as signs that they were angry with us. Faraday explained lightening and then people stopped being afraid only to turn around and claim their God was still orchestrating it. There is no supernatural investigative Science team in an reputable University. It is not needed. Just like Liberty University no longer has a Philosophy Department. Who needs to develop critical thinking skills when they already profess to have a personal relationship with the Creator of the Universe.

    Of course every thing has an explanation. Even spirits would require life imbued to non-baryonic matter with out electron orbital shells so that it could pass through matter. Supernatural simply means what the compound word implies. Even as we speak scientist are trying to bring dark matter more into the natural realm by detecting it with sensors deep in the earth. Meanwhile there are also scientist trying to bring aerial events into the natural realm:

    Scientist don’t have a plausible explanation for Zeuiton Egypt, Skinwalker Ranch can be view 24 hours a day on the internet. Buddhist monks can combust paper in their hand and sit in boiling oil. All of these have no explanation.   Science is deaf, dumb and blind when it comes to the supernatural.

    According to Nathan Filer, in “The Heartland – finding and losing schizophrenia” – only 70% of schizophrenics experience feelings of persecution, while “grandiosity” is a mainstay. So, it’s very plausible that Jesus was a schizophrenic.

    Miracles and unexpainable  wonders happen today. Miracles and wonders therefore don’t support that conclusion.

    @robert,

    Don’t assume that everyone protected and blessed by God has a direct conversation with him. Job was blessed and became the richest person in the East, before God spoke directly to him. God speaking directly
    to a person is a rarity until you are born of his spirit, i.e, receive a tongue of fire with which you can rebuke the earth with the sword of your mouth. The two witnesses to come will bring down more plagues upon tbe earth because it has drunk of the fury of the spiritual fornication of the harlot Rome- Constantinople with its deity Mary ( Ishtar/ Astarte)

    Be satisfied with protection from Covid-19 for now, if you have this hope.

    Psalm 91 sounds like it applies directly to this plague.

    He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

    Am I to understand that the 1.25M plus that are infected and the 75,000K dead (so far in the US alone) are wicked? Since Jesus does not ever speak to me- I think I may know why. Revelations says that only 144,000 will be saved and are selected from the twelve tribes of Israel just before the “Great Tribulation” commences. Since there is no way I am holier than the holiest 144,000 I had better seek salvation in the 3rd most accepted religion, Hinduism. The trinity of God Brahma , Vishnu , Mahesh represents 3 steps in our life : Generation , Operation ( Sustenance) and Destruction. I had better get busy; I know so little of these Gods. I wonder if the God of Abraham may just be a wicked force leading people away from Hinduism? Better to be reincarnated than to be outside of the 144 thousand club. In any event I better get to studying so that I may make my appeal.

    Ah, you are forgetting about the great crowd of which no man could number. And keep those Asiatic trinities far from you. There is no trinity in scripture. It’s a Nicene invention approved by Emperor Constantine of all people championed by an Asiatic Bishop.

    @Reg funny video🙂

    That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us…    -Hebrews 6:18

    Every man that has this hope is protected from Covid-19 by the immutability of his counsel.

    Well I put on some pleasing music, lit a candle, and asked Jesus to reveal himself. After a while and nothing happened I wondered if I needed to atone for my sins first. I have called Christians and other theists fools and I am truly sorry for that. Again I prayed and again, nothing. Perhaps the Son of Man is busy with this virus. I was going to try again today. It is the National Prayer Day. He must be super busy. Perhaps eternity is not for me. Have I done something wrong? I a not a fat man by any sense of the word. Why are the keys to Heaven so hard to obtain? Maybe I need to go directly to YHWH and ask for revelation. He can be kind of scary; do I need a middleman or something?

    You only need patience. Keep reading Psalm 91 and ordering your life before him.

    Well the treasure hunters on Oak Island speculated that the original works of Shakespeare may be buried there, to late for me now because I didn’t receive an A in eighth grade English and the original manuscript could have help!…Not

    @robert, You sound sincere. I will certainly pray. You will receive blessings in your health , life and protection from Covid-19. Testing Psalm 91 is a sure proof of his existence to the faithful.

    @robert. You are not contending with a myth nor legend, but a living God. but your unbelief will spare you while there is life.

    A living god as opposed to what? All the dead ones in some imaginary god graveyard? In the silence of the evenings each day this week I shall pick a god or chief prophet from the major religions and sincerely ask to be shown the light since I am agnostic. I will have a completely open mind and any true god should know how to inform me of their glory, power and existence.

    LOL 🙂

    I’m guessing it is a spiritual UFO that will disappear upon ‘excavation’, LOL. Just pathetic really.

    watch it dude, forgo the arm waving. 🙂

    Last nights episode of  the secret of Skinwalker ranch, using ground penetrating surveillance equipment has detected what would best be describe as a buried UFO, a thousand feet long and shaped like a football. I don’t know if it is physical or metaphysical ( spiritual , disappears upon excavation or simple invisible) but it will be interesting to find out. There are suppose to be angels cast out of heaven and imprisoned in Tartarus (the earth) in chains of darkness.
