I read this from an author whose writing I enjoy: “I was raised by scientists and tend to be on the Scully side of the equation. . . I always look for the rational explanation before going to the supernatural explanation.”
What I find interesting about this is that I was raised by religious people, but still fall on the “Scully side of the equation,” looking for a rational explanation first. Makes me wonder if this kind of scientifically inquisitive mind is nature or nurture. Makes me think the “God gene” theory may be right.
At the same time, I cannot discount the supernatural. There are too many things that defy scientific explanation, too many things I’ve seen or known.
