The sceptical attitude involves:
- Seeking all relevant evidence concerning any extraordinary or putative paranormal event, claim or theory.
- Keeping an open mind and not rejecting paranormal claims a priori.
- Refusing to accept as true theories and explanations for which there is insufficient or ambiguous evidence and recognising that withholding belief is a preferable position to accepting claims for which there is insufficient evidence.
- In seeking explanations, to prefer the ordinary to the extraordinary, the natural to the supernatural and the simple to the complex.
