This is what I believe: People who persist in believing in the "supernatural" do so only because they are ignorant about the universe. They do not see the wonder and incredible beauty of the cosmos, and because of their mundane view of the natural world they feel the need to invent and believe in a world beyond the natural world, a "super-natural" world separate and above the laws of nature, a world populated by ghosts and demons and gods and spirits and other fictional creatures, for the sole purpose of making the universe feel like a more exciting place. There are enough amazing things in the entire universe such that no one should feel the need to believe in things beyond it simply to make the universe more interesting or more beautiful. After all, by observing and studying the universe, scientists discover again and again that the universe is a place greater and stranger than the wildest products of our imagination. Why bother, then, to construct a "supernatural" element of the universe and believe it to be more than the fiction that it is?
