See where im going with this? Seemingly unnatural powers that are now not explainable and that do exist, cant prove and entire theory, that we have the Mind of God, that we are the only consciousness in our reality and everything happens because of our thinking, that we can be and get whatever we want, including the power to fly (as stated in the "subjective reality" article from this site), and so much more stuff i dont remember now.
Well there is the flip side of the story. Once upon a time, it would be completely unscientific to believe that you could talk to someone one hundred miles away.
It would be completely unscientific to believe that milk turned bad because there were little invisible organisms in it doing things.
It would be completely unscientific to believe that air wasn't just air, but was a mixture of different types of gases such as oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
It would be completely unscientific to believe that sex could pass on fatal diseases.
It would be completely unscientific to believe that the earth was round (surely everyone would fall off, if that were the case?).
In 2007, there can be many things which would be unscientific to believe in, because these things cannot be scientifically proven. But I still believe that my mother loves me, for though it is unscientific to believe that, I can experience her love for myself. I still believe in LOA, for though it is unscientific to believe that, I can test it for myself every day in my own life, to my own satisfaction, and I have.
Or do you still think that your mother does not love you?
