Nice structured argument there.

Anyway, I believe the supernatural does exist, but to a certain extent.
It really depends what you class as supernatural.
I'll go by this definition "an event attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature."
I'll break my argument down into the most common supernatural events.
I don't believe in things like dragons, unicorns or Bigfoot (maybe on other planets there are creatures that resemble these, but not on earth).

Aliens has to be the biggest by far.
It seems so unrealistic to think that we are the only planet with life on out of the almost infinite number of planets out there. Why would we be the exception? The common answer is God. I'm atheist, so I don't accept that answer one bit. Another similar concept is the idea of parallel universes and black holes possible being a portal to them. I believe there are parallel universes, but whether a black hole is a portal is another matter entirely.

Another more complex supernatural thing (it's not an event so I don't know what to call it) is the existence of dark energy. This is a hypothetical type of energy that we are not currently able to trace because it neither emits nor absorbs any electromagnetic energy, but there is research which points to the existence of such energy. It would allow for the existence of parallel universes, so called 'shadow people' (like the name suggests, it suggest that a living organism could be a shadow).

The difference between this and believing in a god or afterlife is that these can be proven, whereas unless a god makes an appearance, can't be proven.

Id like to believe it exists. But I've never actually had an experience with anything supernatural. But i have to say that Im leaning more towards Yes it is real just because like there are are TONS of people that have seen things that they cant explain. they cant all just be hoaxes or just eyes playing tricks. I think there is definitely energy that can manifest itself, but I dont know about like little ghost girls or possessions like the exorcist

Hi =)

straight of the bat I would like to say, I disbelieve that there is a supernatural and rather than address something you have said to another, I would like to start our own back and forth.
Firstly I would like to flesh out what both of us actually believe and would accept as persuasive, I personally will not be convinced of the supernatural existing in reality on a purely philosophical argument, I will however if it is proved philosophically via argument concede then that it is philosophically possible.

So I guess I would just lie to start at the start and agree on the terms we are discussing, In the spirit of not defining the term in a biased way, I would like to agree on a definition between the two of us of what the "supernatural" is
