This just kind of crossed my mind, probably spouting a load of crap tonight, it seems like one of those half arsed switched on kind of nights really lol

How can we differentiate between natural and supernatural when this reality/earth is the only point of reference we have!?

And now my brain is giving up! Confused

I suppose in essence there is hardly a true difference between "natural" and "supernatural". Both just terms coined by Humans in their limited perspective having physical bodies.

People have a hard time understanding or believing that other entities could hold form and exist and think without a fleshy shell to reside in.

It would be easier to draw a line and guess what supernatural means to a Human, something which cannot be consistently touched or seen with the naked eye.

You can see plants animals, rocks and other people. However you cannot SEE air, but it exists, it is natural, so maybe that isn't sufficient.

Even more specifically what is considered natural? Something organic, and made of matter? Well, light is natural, and comprised of Photons.

Many "supernatural beings" are also comprised of such Photons. (electricity and magnetism included)

So IMO most things are Natural. I'd have a hard time finding something I could even classify as Supernatural.

Big Grin  Hope that was an okay answer!

I know you're coming in the night like a thief, but I've had some time alone, to hone my lying technique. I know you think that I'm someone you can trust, but I'm scared I'll get scared, and I swear I'll try to nail you back up. So do you think that we could work out a sign, so I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try? I know you're coming for the people like me. We've all got wood and nails, turned out in a hate factory.

Thanks.

I needed the clarification.

I think the difference is supernatural things don't obey the Laws of physics or they're not natural.

http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/defini...pernatural

For example:

The majority of the events in the Bible such as Jesus' miraculous healings, Moses parting the Red sea, The Great Flood and Jesus walking on water.

Angels, Demons, Vampires, Ghosts, Ghouls, Goblins, Witches/Wizards and Werewolves are all classed as supernatural also.

Supernatural things have been happening since year dot.
They are still natural, just super natural.

We tend to think that this world is all there is. That this finite material made of matter and the things we can percieve with our sense are all that exist. We are incorrect in this assumption. There is much more going on than we know about, so much more. The supernatural is still natural, it is just super by our standards.

Well I don't imagine it could be said any better than what Creeper or Goku said. Trenton, you were pretty bang on too. Sorry to disappoint, but I don't think I'll be blowing any minds Tongue
