"If you don't believe in something supernatural, how can you imagine that you yourself have supernatural abilities enough to survive."

The look on her face while she said that was disturbing.

I wonder what type of "survivors" she was talking about?. Cancer? HIV? Plane crash? Natural death?

Why doesn't she shows us someone with "supernatural abilities" surviving an imminent death and living for ever?

I agree.  I do believe in a higher power than myself, it's called the "UNIVERSE" not god. When people talk about god we assume they're talking about their god of the bible or koran, which we know is a bunch of hokey and myth.  I think it's more about not thinking that you're the only important thing in the universe, which is what a lot of religious people think.  So, by believing there's a so-called higher power that looks over us in the image of man, you are not only being a supernatural thinker (religious), but you feel you are something special that will go to heaven if you believe and hell if you don't.  I think these believers need to study a lot more science, philosophy and psychology. Maybe just thinking more deeply about it would help them out.

She apparently responded on her blog to this. She attempted to clear up the matter but only proved that she was using statistically irrelevant conclusions. Link

CNN: airing some bimbo's opinion and calling it news. Classy.

Give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day. Give him a religion, and he’ll starve to death while praying for a fish. - David Attenborough.

@Kris, I see. She jumped into conclusions before doing her homework and went to an international channel to voice her misconceptions. Typical.

We die earlier so we can avoid all the religious crazies. It's part of our evolution. lol.
