I have interviewed a lot of people who have experienced the paranormal in my years as a reporter and Talk Show Host and I assure you there is something out there. What form it ultimately takes I have no clue.
I look at it like this. I have a saying about being prepared for what may come and it's this. "It's better have more than you need than to need more than you have."
God and faith should be treated the same way. It costs us nothing to be respectful of others and be a good person and we can benefit from it in generally.
Just a thought.
