What happens when a famous skeptic confronts the unmistakable mystery of spirit in his own life?
Michael Shermer is the well-known skeptic and publisher of Skeptic Magazine (www.skeptic.com), and explains an incident in his life that seemingly defies explanation. In this article published in Scientific American, he begins his story this way:
“Often I am asked if I have ever encountered something that I could not explain. What my interlocutors have in mind are not bewildering enigmas such as consciousness or U.S. foreign policy but anomalous and mystifying events that suggest the existence of the paranormal or supernatural. My answer is: yes, now I have.”
