I'm a dedicated believer in the scientific method, and I consider myself an extremely practical person. But I'm still baffled by the ferocity with which some express their disbelief. I can completely understand being skeptical, or not believing at all, but to rule out the very possibility? The coelacanth was thought to have gone extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago, but then they were rediscovered in the 20th century. That's the joy of science, right there. Here's the missing fellow now: Call me a hopeless romantic, even soft in the head, but I still like to think (to borrow a line) that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in our philosophy. The world would be a less interesting place if there weren't.
