I have done some research on the differences between supernatural and paranormal. Below are my findings. My question is can one exist without the other?
From the merriam-webster.com Paranormal : not scientifically explainable; supernatural Supernatural: a) departing from what is usual or normal especially so as to appear to transcend the laws of nature b)attributed to an invisible agent (as a ghost or spirit)
They seem interchangeable. If there is a supernatural force at work, then it is producing a paranormal phenomenon. If we have a paranormal phenomenon that we can not explain then there must be a supernatural force at work. They are different, but logically can one exist without the other?
