Not, I am not agruing for or against the existence of another demension, ghosts, UFO's, etc in anything that follows. I am only arguing against the logic of the statement above.
Paolo, simple because something is "unprovable" does not mean that it does not exist. All it means is that we limited understanding of that thing, at this point in time. If anything, the best support for that is the history of science itself.
Science is filtered through the lense of human understanding, which is limited. Limited knowledge will always provided a skewered perspective of reality. Moreover, how do you define "proof?" Science sees things occur in deep space all the time that it has no expliantion for. Are these things "wishful thinking" because science can't "prove" what is happening, at this point in time? Were bacteria, virus, and plague "wishful thinking" before a cause could be proved by science?
Oy too many quotes from too many people to respond to.
Sedition, the "freaky" things in the sky are only freaky because they are unknown. Once they become known, the freak factor vanishes as well as all the paranormal silly talk. Quite simply, it is the human imagination and fantasy that has tried explain the unknown. To use your exmaple, viruses did not exist before science proved them. They were evil spirits that attacked you because you let your faith in god slip. Anyone who said otherwise was a heretic.
So here we are again. We lack the tools and knowledge to explain things that we have seen. Our mind requires an explination and uses our imagination to fill that requirement. It can't be explained by our science so it must be teh alienz. Anyone who doesn't agree isn't a "believer".
Paolo as to your earlier comment on multiple dimensions. Your definition of multiple dimensions is fantasy yes. Those don't exist and were dreamed up. However, science has proved already that our reality is effected by other realities at a quatum level. Matter at a certain point fluctuates between states or realities until acted on by another force. It's a tad hard to go into the documentation and how it was proved on a forum, but it has been.
