Considering the curricular implications of “supernatural aid” seems ridiculous because there is very little mainstream discourse around this phenomenon. The word “supernatural” appears in the same orbit as the metaphysical, spiritual, magical, mystical, paranormal, preternatural, and occult. The lack of clarity is ironic according to Slattery (1995), as in the past wars and the fate of civilizations were fought over the exact meaning of terms such as religion, theology, and spirituality (p. 75). In addition to being lumped together, these systems of belief have been delegitimized.
