"1) First, the main problem with this argument is that what people actually experience is NOT the same thing as what a skeptic deliberately makes up for the sake of argument! To put the two in the same category is both illogical and underhanded. Since the skeptic using this argument hasnít really experienced invisible pink unicorns himself, everyone knows that he is deliberately making up something fictitious to put down something he doesnít believe in while the paranormal experiencer or claimant is not. "
Well that is totally missing the point.
Apparently, every Christmas in the US the 911 service gets hundreds of calls from people reporting that they've seen Santa. Some of these people are serious. So from the loony perspective that does prove that Father C is real. The article starts from the preconception that anything a skeptic says is false, while anything said by someone claiming a paranormal experience is true - a massive fail.
