Paranormal is a general term that describes unusual experiences that supposedly lack a scientific explanation or phenomena alleged to be outside of Science's current ability to explain or measure, since science of today is only concerned with materialistic/physical world, where as Paranormal phenomena is non-physical and as such it is not recognized by the science.
Quantum theory, in itself, does not recognize the existence of soul or spirit but it provides a mechanism in which nonphysical entities such as spirit could exert their Will upon the physical universe by slightly shifting the probability distribution associated with individual quantum events.
When anybody believes in God - that means he recognizes the paranormal phenomena because if one expects some change in his life by the Grace of God - it means that one feels and recognizes God's existence and if He exists that means one doesn't believe in current scientific researches. If you have belief in God that means you believe in Soul - good or bad (Bhoot/Ghost) and also in Reincarnation, Samadhi avastha, Tantra, Mantra, Telepathy, black Magic etc. as all of these are inter-connected phenomena and are non-physical and paranormal too.
The views expressed above are our personal ones but to support the same we are giving hereunder the details of some of the opinion polls conducted from time to time at different places:
* A survey by National Science Foundation in 2001 found that 9% of people polled thought astrology was very scientific, and 31% thought it was somewhat scientific. About 32% of Americans surveyed stated that some numbers were lucky, while 46% of Europeans agreed with that claim. About 60% of all people polled believed in some form of Extra-sensory perception and 30% thought that "some of the unidentified flying objects, that have been reported are really space vehicles from other civilizations."
** One survey of the beliefs of the paranormal topics was conducted by the Gallup Organization in United States in 2005. The survey found that 73% of those polled believed in at least one of the ten paranormal items presented in the survey. The ten items included in the survey were: Extrasensory perception (41% held this belief), haunted houses (37%), ghosts (32%), telepathy (31%), clairvoyance (26%), astrology (25%), communication with the dead (21%), witches (21%), reincarnation (20%), and channeling spiritual entities (9%). These items were selected as they wanted to "firm the belief that humans have more than the 'normal' five senses." Only one percent of respondents believed in all ten items.
*** Another survey conducted in 2006 by Researchers from Monash University, Australia sought to determine what types of phenomena people claimed to have experienced and the effects of the same on their lives after these experiences. The study was conducted as an online survey with over 2,000 respondents from around the world participating. The results revealed that around 70% of the respondents believed to have had an unexplained paranormal event that changed their lives - mostly in a positive way. About 70% also claimed to have seen, heard or been touched by an animal or person that they knew was not there; 80% reported having a premonition, and almost 50% stated they recalled a previous life. The UK poll of over 2,000 people, conducted in 2008 showed that 70% of people believed in the human soul, 55% believed in heaven and 53% believed in life after death.
