Israel: Where the Paranormal Is Normal

Saturday, June 1st, 1996

This article appeared in Skeptical Briefs.

I should begin by saying that this has always been a land in which the paranormal is normal. According to all the religions which have blossomed here, throughout history miracles have taken place practically on a daily basis in the land of Israel. The dead have been revived, the sick have been cured spiritually, oceans have parted to make way for the good guys (and then drown the bad guys), water has turned into wine, stone into water, and so forth. On the very eve of the twenty-first century, I’m happy to report that nothing here has changed and miracle-making continues apace.
