The actual facts will likely remain
whatever thay r whether "reproducible evidence" is forthcoming or not.

@OmSigDAVID,
That's the entire problem. These are still just "tales from the ER" and some appear embellished just to make a point.

Every time I eat a pizza for supper, I can be sure Ill have nightmares about being late for classes and having my students get blown up and I could have saved them by being there on time. (Ive been told that the solenine is responsible).
Interesting but its chemistry not evidence of the supernatural

Did that affect your tenure ?

René Descartes took the inquiry a step further.
"Cogito ergo sum."


In the final analysis, u must subjectively decide
what evidence is sufficient to be convincing.

I have found it astonishing (on a collateral note)
that there r people walking around, ostensibly normal, functioning citizens,
who steadfastly maintain that animals r un-able to think,
that humen have a monopoly on thought; this in the face
of watching your dogs n cats reproducing the motions of
running (even calling out), during their sleep;
(to say nothing qua lions' observed co-ordinated attack patterns).
