I have seen a lot of atheists with their hatred towards religion. Which i don't have a problem with but then they also have a hatred for the paranormal, not all of some do. Know it's probably true that some paranormal phenomena probably is not real such as orbs, the loctus monster, alien implants. What i am interested is, is where their is a massive amount of evidence. This appears to be in survival research and psi. Now a view that i would see as open minded would be a view called agnosticism. This view is the not sure attitude towards questions that surely are the big questions to life.
An atheist on the otherhand is confined to a worldview such as a believer is. So what would i call myself after looking at the evidence for life after death. Well i would say that i am convinced however that doesn't mean that i can't use critical thinking.
