Scientific method can’t explain some events

I sometimes find Mr. Lonnie Bailey’s letters interesting, when they aren’t too obscure. However, unlike Mr. Bailey, I know there is a supra Intelligent force.

I doubt part of cosmologist Laura Mersini-Houghton’s speculations regarding what went on prior to the Big Bang. Undoubtedly, there has always been some energy, but we can’t know what is and was beyond our cosmos, only speculate!

There have been too many years since my B.A. in philosophy in 1957 for me to engage in metaphysical discourse, but I do have a few observations.

Despite the optimism of “cutting edge physics,” as discussed by Lynne McTaggart in The Field, there is a class of events experienced only by people of faith. It is more than the “zero point field.”

Those of spiritual faith in a Higher Power may have an influence in their lives creating uncanny-like synchronicities defying probability immensely. Skeptics cannot know this, as faith is a requisite and contrary to scientific method.
