You can "suggest" whatever you'd like as long as you admit it's a wild assed guess.

yes but that doesnt mean in every instance it would be close-minded to suggest that an incident would be paranormal.

In the example the person didn't suggest it was paranormal they said it was. I think there is a difference.

Which is what I was getting at earlier. Through that logic it would seem that they are essentially implying that there is no such thing as a paranormal event. My previous comment was intended to display that some unexplained events would indeed be paranormal, however not all unexplained events would necessarily be paranormal.

OK. Now you're back to being close minded unless you have some pretty impressive data to back up your statement.

How in the world do you know that some unexplained events are paranormal?

How in the world should that be considered close minded? It is close-minded to suggest that there is no such thing as a paranormal event, which is what you guys are doing.

It is also close-minded to assume that everything that could happen would only do so in your parameters of understanding.

How in the world do you know that some unexplained events are paranormal?

Depending on the nature of the event it would be easy to tell.

Why do you keep saying that? No one has suggested that there is no such thing as a paranormal event. No one.

However when you say you KNOW an unexplained event IS paranormal, you are being close minded because you have no evidence to prove it yet you KNOW (saying with certainty) that it's paranormal. That is close minded.

I am saying that because they are essentially stating that for something to be paranormal, it has to be explained as paranormal. But what primarily makes something paranormal is our inability to explain the how and why behind it...therefore they are creating an environment under their perameters that would not be able to foster a paranormal event.

I dont understand what would be so hard about identifying a paranormal event. "UFO's" in some instances are a good example. We know there's something out of the ordinary with the situation, however we don't know to what extent and the details behind it.

You just told me you could prove a paranormal event. But whatever.

If there is no known natural reason for an event then paranormal or supernatural are still possibilities as well as the possibility that we are simply too ignorant to know the natural reasons for the event.
