Michael Shermer Out of Body Experiment

This is amazing! It is the neurological explanation for psychic, paranormal & religious experiences. These phenomena happen inside people's brains, not outside, and here's proof.

Wanna hear a funny? Talked to my sister about this at lunch yesterday (we were raised Catholic... I think she's Lutheran now). When my grandfather died, I could've sworn his spirit came to me to say goodbye. I've since learned of things like this experiment by Shermer, and the phenomenon of sleep paralysis. When I told her that Occam's razor tells me I did not have a communion with our dead grandpa, she was seriously floored that I thought the physiological explanation was simpler than the supernatural one. That I "choose" to believe the complex firing of neurons made me feel like there was a presence in the room, and my subconscious chose to ascribe it with my recently deceased relative's personality. That "God did it" is the simpler explanation.... How the hell do you debate that???? Like arguing with some one who insists that black is paler than white. You aren't in agreement about the postulations, so you can't proceed.
