The Power of Belief

"The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe."
Dr. Ian Stevenson

This past week I ran across a story from The Atlantic about the paranormal activity lab that operates at the University of Virginia's School of Medicine. You can read the story (which is a longer and more in-depth feature piece) by clicking here. This certainly isn't the first time that I've read about academics who study the possibility that (shocker) modern science might not have all of the answers to life and the many unexplained events that have occurred, even in modern times.
