The supernatural is much more than ‘mythology’ and ‘legends’ as Patrick Ball imagines (5/7) and it is hard to see how any person can be designated Christian who disbelieves in it, when Jesus is quoted as having said that his kingdom ‘is not of this world.’
     The supernatural aspect of religion, which is something not limited only to Christianity, is essential as the basis of hope and salvation or ‘life beyond the veil’. The higher worlds really do exist, which is why the universe of the materialists and atheists, who close the door on them, appears so thin and meagre, no matter how many galaxies are counted.
