Supernatural? A power that seems to violate or go beyond natural forces. An alien could conceivably hear prayers and interfere in our universe. Doesn't have to be supernatural to do the things god is supposed to do.


I would say that supernatural is about a power that does violate or go beyond natural forces.

I consider that pretty hard to demonstrate, if not impossible.

This is why I hold the perhaps controversial view that the existence of gods is impossible to demonstrate. It could always be a really clever alien lying.
