This goes to what I've been saying, man makes the laws, and man rewrites the laws. All science would need to do, imo, is expand their defintion of acceptable methodologies. Maybe, they could tweak a few of their "laws" allowing for the study of the so-called "supernatural" to become part of the mainstream science world. And finally, this subject could be taken serious.
With that said, I understand science, as it stands now, follows observation, then asks the question, i.e. hypothesis, experimentation and falsifiability. This, of course is the method for the natural world. Before microscopes, bacteria might have fallen under the term "supernatural" as there was no way to even observe them (the first step).
We have many great scientific minds out there finding unique ways to study the supernatural. I'm confident we can set up a supernatural scientific methodology just like men have set up and agreed upon the natural world's current scientifically accepted methodology.
Dawkins thinks belief in God is an excuse to evade thinking in the scientific world. Sadly, he is ignorant to the list of christian scientists who have contributed & founded many of the sciences he himself believes in. How ironic.
