A Quote by William Butler Yeats on animals and supernatural

One often hears of a horse that shivers with terror, or of a dog that howls at something a mans eyes cannot see, and men who live primitive lives where instinct does the work of reason are fully conscious,of many things we cannot perceive at all. As life becomes more orderly, more deliberate, the supernatural world sinks farther away.

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)

A Quote by Shirley Jackson on menace, supernatural, attacks, modern minds, abandoned, armor, superstition, substitute, and defense

The menace of the supernatural is that it attacks where modern minds are weakest, where we have abandoned our protective armor of superstition and have no substitute defense.

A Quote by Walter Russell on science, healing, health, mind, matter, nature, law, god, man, love, and supernatural

There is a scientific explanation of healings by the power of Mind over matter which demonstrates that such healings are not miracles, but are within Nature’s law which cannot be transcended by either man or God. The Fact that they were beyond man’s comprehension did not prove that they were supernatural – for an airplane or radio would have been thought supernatural to dwellers in places far removed even one generation ago.

A Quote by Bishop John Shelby Spong on death of god, god, and supernatural

The God content of the past no longer sustains the contemporary spirit.  We sense that our only hope is to journey past those definitions of a God who is external, supernatural, and invasive, which previously defined our belief.  We must discover whether or not the death of the God we worshiped yesterday is the same thing as the death of God.
