What is the meaning of "paranormal"? It is a term that is used to identify that which is designated as being "above or outside" of normal expectancy. We can pretty much predict or observe that which is in the "natural" or physical world, but we can't directly see that which is "supernatural". Paranormal identifies a variety of anomalous phenomena that can't be explained by traditional secular or scientific knowledge.
Associated with the term paranormal, is the word "incorporeality", which means a state of being which does not have a physical body, or a natural presence that can be seen or detected, and has not become so by artificial means. This is opposite of the word "corporeal", which means having a material or physical form. This leads us to the definitions of "ghost", and "spirit". A ghost is a incorporeal being that once had a corporeal existence. A spirit is a being or entity that has never had a corporeal or (natural) physical existence.
This is one of several areas that the evolution theory is exposed as being inept, and a failure at explaining the existence of life. The theory of evolution begins with inorganic, corporeal matter, and it is accepted as the explanation of how physical life forms appeared within the world we see. By some sort of random chance (magic), non-life gave birth to life. That means that the evolution theory denies that there is any non-corporeal existence, else it would have to explain where spirits come from, and how ghosts come into play, creating a paranormal arena. Therefore, both Atheism and evolution deny the existence of the supernatural, and not just the existence of God.
If that be the case, why is there the belief in astrology, and the science of parapsychology? Does evolution also deny the existence of clairvoyancy? The term clairvoyance is used as an umbrella to define concepts such as "precognition", and "retro-cognition"; both which are explained as being "prophetic dreams and visions", which are sent to the corporeal being (the receiver) by a non-corporeal source. This advances us to the "Observations of Moses".
In 1598 BC, about two months after crossing the Red Sea, Moses walked part way up Mt. Sinai (Exodus chapter 24), and was given by God, visions of several days which had occurred in the ancient past. Each vision was 12 hours long, starting in the evening, and ending the next morning of the following day, for six days. Each vision was of the daylight hours of a 24 hour day, and each day was of a different week and time period, but the visions were not given in chronological order, but rather in Messianic order. Therefore, what has been called "the first day of Creation" was not part of Creation Week, as current Creationism mistakenly claims. Only the Fourth Day was of Creation Week. The rest of the days represented six weeks of restoration, following extinction events.
This means that God conveyed to Moses visions of pre-historic man, which was of the time period of about 64 Million BC (the sixth day, chapter one), which occurred long before Adam was made and put into the Garden of Eden (chapter two). That is why the sequence of events is not the same, for they are of two different time periods. Mankind of chapter one was the first to be made "in God's image". Adam, of chapter two, was simply the first of modern mankind which was formed in 7,200 BC. The seven different time periods of Divine Activity is the correct explanation of the "jumps" in the fossil record of Earth.
God is a Spirit, of the Supernatural Realm, who created our natural realm (our universe) which we see. He is the Supernatural Entity that created animate existence (objects that that have signaling and self-sustaining processes). What gives corporeal objects (bodies) "life", are non-corporeal entities (spirits), were are created and given by God.
Therefore, even though Atheists and evolutionists deny the existence of the reality of the paranormal, it does not block the reality of coming judgment, which every given spirit that God has created must face at the appointed time.
So where do "dis-embodied spirits" come from? They come from chapter six of Genesis, who later died in 2611 BC.
