Never see the connection between God and the supernormal myself. I don't believe in the first , but definitely do, the second.
My mother lived as part of a large family which moved house several times. The ghost or poltergeist, whatever you call him, came too! This went on for years and years, and the kids liked having him as he could be blamed for lots of things they were responsible for. He did seem to be more active when one member of the family was present but not exclusively. He seemed rather simple but had a huge range of activities, hiding things, (once a visitor's baby) ,throwing small things, floating objects though the air,ringing doorbells, fixing up strange scarecrow figures with pillows and hats etc. he got more and more skilful with time and was able to do things like picking out on the piano a melody that was running through someone's head. Or laying a table, but never in a useful manner, ie, a salt spoon for the grandfather and a soup ladle for the baby. Eventually they were able to communicate with him, and he said his name was Tom and he just liked being with them.
i don't see why the subject should be avoided. Ignored by those not interested, perhaps. I never join discussions here on grafting,or cacti, or coleus!
