Religion and Psychical Research

In this article I shall not consider whether any religious doctrine is true, nor whether paranormal phenomena do in fact occur. I shall simply consider the relations between religion and psychical research, or what the implications for religion would be, if paranormal phenomena did occur. For this purpose I shall assurne to be true any testimony which would be regarded as establishing conclusively any fact which did not have the high antecedent improbability of paranormal phenomena.
