I have an atheist friend who believes in supernatural beings such as ghosts
But not a supernatural being such as God.
That confuses me.
If you can accept things existing outside of the natural world
then why can you not accept the possibility of God?
What are ghosts?
If they are spirits of the dead
then you are accepting there is something more to us
Something beyond what science can explain.
And if we have the ability to become ghosts,
why doesn't everyone become one?
Where do the spirits of those who die and not become ghosts go to?
Wouldn't that be heaven?
So you are accepting a supernatural world beyond our own.
A world that is beyond our understanding,
beyond the ability of science to describe it.
If you accept that we have spirits that can become ghosts or go to some other world than why can't you accept the possibility that this supernatural world filled with supernatural spirits might just have a supernatural being that has powers beyond our comprehension?
How can you believe in ghosts and not believe in God?
