    Well, if I visit a friend on a rainy day to talk about QM and he asks me what I find interesting about QM and my answer is , "it's very wet outside" (which is true), are we having a scientific discussion?....

    Although my own personal reasoning is from a very different angle I certainly am hoping that you do decide to leave the forum exactly as it is!

    Fringe science
    religion
    philosophy
    3 very separate subjects

    if anything was going to be dumped(policed and moved into a separate area) it would need to be religion

    fringe science is not religion
    quite the opposite
    so the premise of the question seems quite sinister

    example
    exorcisms
    exorcisms are religion not fringe science

    "life after death as a religious belief"
    is religion

    NOT fringe science
    fringe science is concerned with scientific method around the cutting edge of scientific understanding and theory

    NOT religious belief !

    so if anything

    more precisely
    a "religious fringe" should be added to include religious ghosts & life after death and creationism
    it could probably include things like satanism and animism and voodoo

    Your post is interesting for sure... but you have not convinced me to abandon my reply to the topic of:

    "No... leave things as they are."

    I really don't think that you need any new forums....... and I believe that if we could transport you somehow to debate what you just posted with Helen Wambach Ph. d., or Dr. Chet Snow or any of her most well informed disciples / students....

    .... I think that she would differ with your assertions.... .and I think that she would win the debate......
    however flawed her research may turn out to be......
    I believe that she was sincere....and I believe that she demonstrated great insight under the set of circumstances that she worked under!

    This thread started back in 2018. Its poll, and its content, are no longer directly relevant. We have moved on and it is now 2021.
