Introduction

TOK Supernatural Science Supernatural science is when it pertains to entities, events or powers regarded as beyond nature, in that they cannot be explained by the currently understood laws of the natural world. Religion claims that it has the power to cast certain spells and curses, divination, the belief that there is an afterlife for the dead, and innumerable others.
