I would like books, as many books as possible, arguing FOR the supernatural and arguing AGAINST the supernatural. I really want to know if anything exists beyond the material
>>21802545God spits out the lukewarm
>>21802545The "material" doesn't exist, its a 2D geometric image
>>21802571>>21802640can you include the authors names? I'm having trouble finding these books
>>21802545Start from the works of Jung and see if you get filtered. Personally, he managed to show me that both realities have equal merits for existence.

>>21804462I did google them. Nothing came up for both
>>21802763>"The Varieties of Religious Experience" by William JamesI asked ChatGPT what his arguments for the existence of the supernatural are and the answer was really boring. Basically just "some people claim to have experienced supernatural stuff" and "some cognitive stuff can't be explained with materialism".
>>21805040James didn't necessarily believe in the supernatural, he thought that it was possible and sought evidence for it
>>21802545Just read Spinoza
>>21802770God that guys a fucking cunt don’t bother watching any of his garbage. He merely has the simulacra of an intellectual because his voice sounds authoritative. He’s just a low rent drama tuber.
>>21802545Prove first that what you are sensing with your mind is material
>>21802770Why do you keep shilling your channel?
>>21802545Keith woods has a few good youtube videos on God. There's one where he talks about a book which argues for God because the scientific constants are set perfectly to permit life + existence.
>>21802545Try "Natural Supernaturalism". Sounds up your alley.
>>21805040The plural of anecdote is data. What else are you going to base a hunt for evidence of something beyond material?
>>21802545Read the Journal of Parapsychology studies. https://archive.org/details/pub_journal-of-parapsychologyAs someone who wasted his parent's hard-earned income by taking a parapsychology course in university, I can tell you that yes, paranormal phenomena does exists, but they are incredibly rare and the ones we have proof of are the most nonsensical ones, like Poltergeists. The moment someone tells you something which is easily understandable, like "I can bend spoons with my mind" or "pick a number I'll read your mind" you got a scam.
