The trans-empirical as a reality

"Psychological studies of religious phenomena have the potential for profound influence upon the beliefs and practices of religious people. Consequently they will continue to be regarded as a threat by many religionists and as vehicle for exposing the pretensions of religious people by many psychologists. This may well lead to religionists who have some psychological training to attempt protective strategies to shield religion from the full penetration of psychological scrutiny. Similarly psychologists antagonistic towards religion may well develop thoroughgoing critiques which fail to recognize the real benefits that many people gain from accepting the trans-empirical as a reality."
