Supernatural Creep: The Slippery Slope to Unfalsifiability

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 31st, 2013

Also mentioned is the Beast of the Gevaudan, the Yowie and phantom black dogs. How can glowing eyes and resistance to bullets be explained? Or are researchers going down the completely wrong path.
