    Nathan, I'm not talking about illusionists here. I'm talking about a few legitimate experiences I had that, alas, are irreproducible.

    No sleight of hand, no mental disease.

    I was a staunch atheist before. Seeing and experiencing convinced me otherwise. It wasn't a laboratory experiment, but then it didn't need to be.

    What if in the evolutionary development of the mind/brain of humans they developed what we would call psychic powers?

    I would tend to think they would show up more in our young who haven't been that conditioned by society, and gradually taper off as they age.

    I think that is why shamanism has been around for 10s of thousands of years though out our species. All due to the powers of the mind to heal or to cause harm.

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. You can believe whatever you want but you shouldn't feel slighted if others think you are in error. Someday you may understand why.

    Shamanism has been around for 10s of thousands of years because even ignorant minds want to have an answer to "Why?" so they tell themselves a story.

    You really can't say one way or the other. In an infinite universe, anything is possible. Hell, there may even be a spirit named Jehovah out there.
