My point was just that there needs to be an examination of what the supernaturalist presents as evidence for supernaturalism

Not really, no. Because such evidence isn't evidence for supernaturalism, it's evidence for phenomena that >the believer wants to identify as supernatural. That's very different.

Of course this depends on what is offered by the supernaturalist as evidence! You are begging the question again here; you cannot know in advance whether what the supernaturalist will offer will be good or bad evidence.
