My firend Balla Pillai has shared this wonderful point from Richard Dawkins with minciu_sodas group:

"The popularity of the paranormal, oddly enough, might even be grounds for encouragement . I think that the appetite for mystery, the enthusiasm for that which we do not understand, is healthy and to be fostered. It is the same appetite which drives the best of true science, and it is an appetite which true science is best qualified to satisfy.You don't have to be a scientist - you don't have to play the bunsen burner - in order to understand enough science to overtake your imagined need and fill that fancied gap. Science needs to be released from the lab into the culture."

The world is fill with science and mystery and the wonders of both--I like to think there is more out there than meets the skeptical eye.
