In the Christian experience, the supernatural proper has nothing to do with “spiritual” ormparanormal phenomenoa, such as gained wide interest among agnostics after they lost faith in Christinaity and Judaism.

"Ormparanormal"? I don't think that's a real word...

As to your “rigorous investigation,” How does one investigate a singular event? Padre Pio is associated with reports of bilocation. How does one investigate such reports. or even a ‘natural:” event that can not be replicated? Generally, the evidence has to be taken on trust. Sort of like trusting a witnesses description of a face.

Let me get this straight...you actually think that believing someone's description of a person's appearance and believing an account of someone magically being in two different locations at the same time require similar levels of trust?

That's absurd.

Sorry about my typing. I said don’t assume that what I mean by supernatural includes stuff like the paranormal. The latter being a result of a movement called spiritualism and having to do what we call the occult. As for bilocation, for instance, how does one deal with a reports of such a phenomenon?
