Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Hi ceebs!

I had announced that I would make myself more clear as to the logic and structure of what I have found in faith.

I've decided not to go there, for the moment. I don't give every "crackpot theory" special treatment just because it's "Spiritual". Migeru, Colman and JakeS seem to question the mere existence of a spiritual realm to varying degrees. That's why I cited from various sources that speak of a reality beyond scientific materialism.

It is impossible to begin a debate about something anyone may have found 'on the other side' if you're confronted with people who stand behind a seemingly locked door.

I don't fear egg on face, but comprehension is only possible if those who ask are willing to detach from rational certainties and allow for the reality of 'impossibilities'.

For as long as certain 'devil's advocates' find pleasure in laughing off the seriousness of our unseen reality, they will have to remain limited to their ignorance.

If you're sincerely interested in digging deeper, let me know. We could continue the debate on a private blog.

Now you're just special pleading. There are many impossibilities out there. Should we take them all equally seriously? If not, what criteria do you propose to discriminate between them?

My mind is very much open. It just has a dress code.

Your scientific-material dress code is your veil.

You'd have to take it off.
