I welcome a true believer in science and a non-believer in the supernatural. I myself believe in both on the basis of both my personal experiences and on the basis of science.

With the advent of dark matter, superstring theory and QCD there is ample evidence that a supernatural world exists. I have put forth the evidence for such on this forum previously and would be happy to review it if there is interest.

Of course, there is no way to prove that any of that evidence is truth. But we know from Godel and others that there is no way to prove absolutely or rigorously that anything in sciece is true. So science requires faith as well. Most of science is just concepts like the electron that we can understand experientially but do not really know what it is. Superstring theory will give us more understanding, but superstring theory can never be proven either.

So we are all caught up in having faith in one world view or another. Personally I prefer the more optimistic world views and look for evidence that they MAY be true. But the chances I`ll never know for sure, even after I hopefully reside in a supernatural world.
