Much like our ability to think and reason, what if we have a spiritual ability along the same lines? We trust our ability to think and reason and have no empirical evidence to prove the ability exists. One might say, "I can prove I have the ability to reason empirically because you can observe me doing it right now." Which of course is as empirical as observing someone acting on their spiritual ability (ie: praying). We are also unaware of our ability to reason until it is acted upon by an outside source; parents teach children to speak, read, and learn. What if a spiritual ability does exist, but we are unaware of it until acted upon by an outside source?
