Randomness, Chaos, Demonstrations of Humanity that Cannot Define; Neither Control Its Destiny

Reader comment on item: The Perilous Path from Muslim to Christian
in response to reader comment: Nothing Is Supernatural

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 14, 2021 at 23:34

Rationalization of inexplicable events is one of the biggest problems of intellectualized perceptions of things that cannot be explained in typical realms of reasoned observations regarding phenomena described as spiritual. In reality, it is a modern cause of how secularism has supplanted the longstanding understanding of religious phenomena, whether descriptions of miracles or manifestations such as the sightings at Fatima or Lourdes; to the greater manifestation of the resurrection of the Messiah in Israel.
In the physical realm, science is used to rationalize the belief that spiritual phenomena are not reasonable processes of living in a modern context of a technological age where belief is not necessary to live life.
Therein lays the choice. It is still a choice. It remains a choice until last breath. Then, the choice cannot be made for the cause of belief, or the lack thereof. Then it becomes spiritual and rationality can no longer be explained since the supernatural is always spiritual.
