63-year-old American historian Michael Shermer is one of the most famous materialists of the modern world. This popularizer science created in 1992 the so-called Skeptics Society, aimed at combating pseudoscience and superstition. Moreover, Dr. Shermer is editor-in-chief of the popular magazine “Skeptic”, dedicated largely to the refutation of various supernatural statements.

In a word, a more exemplary materialist is still worth looking in our world, and smart, talented and well-read – right Mikhail Berlioz from the Bulgakov novel “The Master and Margarita”. However, few people know that something happened in Michael’s life once, that he failed to explain rationally. This happened, by the way, not so long ago. The mysterious story began on June 25, 2014, in historian’s wedding day with German Jennifer Graf. Bride man brought up in childhood by her mother and grandfather, who was for her as father. Unfortunately, her grandfather died when she was 16 years old.

Supernatural grandfather radio

Among the things that the future wife of the American brought to his a house from Germany, turned out to be an old transistor radio “Philips 070” 1978 release, once owned by her grandfather. Shermer, interested in such a rarity, decided to return it to life after decades of silence. The man disassembled the device with in order to make sure that the contacts haven’t gone anywhere, the parts have not burned out, inserted new batteries. However, the receiver remained speechless, and therefore the couple in love soon lost to him interest, despite its symbolic connection with the memory of decent all respect grandfather Jennifer.

Three months later, the couple received a marriage certificate, signing the Beverly Hills court, and returned home. There lovers swore allegiance to each other and exchanged wedding rings in the presence of witnesses and those closest to them people. True, Jennifer was saddened that next to her at that moment there wasn’t her grandfather who would lead the bride to the altar. When the ceremony was left behind, and the newlyweds retired, they suddenly heard strange noises from their bedroom. It looked like there music was playing.

Our heroes were amazed when they discovered that the radio itself, lying in a drawer, suddenly began to play some old romantic melody. Jennifer burst into tears and said:

My grandfather is with us today. This music is his sign endorsement and gift to us.

Newly married couple all night did not close their eyes and listened to retro hits about love, and the next morning the receiver fell silent and more since then turned on. Michael took the device to the workshop, but there he they said that it is critically faulty and cannot be repaired, because today there’s not even a spare part for it. When surprised man said that the radio worked perfectly recently, he was told that it was simply impossible.

Mysticism that surprised the most skeptical skeptic

Perhaps this story isn’t for many of the regulars on our site. seem so startling and unusual, but she had Colossal influence on Dr. Shermer and his wife. American continues to consider himself a skeptic, but now admits that he is not each phenomenon can be explained through science and common sense. Here is what he writes:

If this happened to someone else, I would explain occurred by a simple electrical anomaly or by the law of large numbers. Every day, septillion events take place in the world, and some of them will surely seem extremely unlikely to stand out from the crowd thanks to its time and the possible meaning of what is happening. I will not say as if this incident proves that the afterlife is real and dead can interact with us using electronic devices. However, now I also will not undertake to claim that nothing beyond the ordinary did not happen. The scientific method is not always to be skeptic and categorically deny everything that does not match your beliefs, and think openly when confronted with something inexplicable.

To this should be added the statement of spiritual people who rightly believe that modern science has shouldered too much burden – the desire to explain this world with only logic and physical laws. And when she has none of this it turns out, then such hardcore materialists like Michael Shermer, just shrug, instantly dropping from his pedestal know-it-alls to the most, perhaps, frank understanding of the Universe, once expressed by the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates: I know just that I don’t know anything …
