Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
    Science is not open-minded towards the idea that there is a god and that there are all kinds of extra-ordinary or paranormal phenomena that it cannot explain.

Wrong. It just wants evidence of them. Show us a paranormal phenomena.  Show us a god.

Science can explain all these things, at least in draft form. It's just people don't like the explanations.

If we seperate between science as a method and the scientific community I think you are both right. Science as a method can approach any question and just wants evidence.

The scientific community on the other hand, can be very averse to touching some questions at all. There was a quite large donation for a professors chair in parapsychological research that bounced between Scandinavian universities before finally settling at Lund. There was quite some concern expressed that studying certain phenomena would debase the scientific community. Not very open-minded indeed.
