Questioning The Answers

Just more information to consider. And there's much more out there to boot.
One aspect of this story that seems to get downplayed but most captures my interest is the fact that, by any reasonable standard, Dorothy Izatt is a
in the traditional sense.
While it is reasonable to want to focus on hard, corroborated, quantifiable evidence, I also consider the "supernatural" element of the story (i.e.,
the role Dorothy plays in all this) to be important to keep in mind, because this isn't just a "lights in the sky" scenario.
In particular, students of "paranormal" phenomena will recognize many elements of Mrs. Izatt's experiences that correlate with other noteworthy
cases, including those of famous, historic "prophetic" events. Indeed, since she claims to routinely communicate with extraterrestrial beings and
claims to relay messages from them, Dorothy Izatt fits the pattern of a traditional prophet
From my vantage point, the Curious Tale of Dorothy Izatt embodies a wide range of classic spiritual phenomena associated with saints, prophets,
psychics, seers and even poltergeists.
While that may suggest to the disinterested cynic that this is all poppycock, I contend that it is the very similarity of these experiences across
time, space, cultures and epochs which suggests a common, underlying cause.
Folks can argue that something isn't real if science can't explain it
, but the true spirit of
science is skeptical inquiry without bias or prejudice and acceptance of observable, empirical and measurable evidence even if it may conflict with
our established beliefs.
In fact, especially
if it conflicts with our established beliefs.
