There are all different kinds of synesthesia.<quoted text>
Where is the evidence to support your claim?:P
When was the survey conducted; by whom was it conducted?
You can see that the inability to detect the presence of a thing doesnt mean it does not exist; you suggested that is a recent post. So you too can use your brain properly to think positively and appreciate the concept that God exists too. Are you a dishonest hypocrite?
How can God be about death denial when He created angels of death?
Do people believe there are aliens on Pluto? Do you?
Try telling that to evolution theorists.
Ok, you are so much against the spiritual and the hocus pocu, then you say something like "They consist of a kind of MAGIC aura"?
If you are going to use the word "Magic" why do you have a problem with God and leprechauns and aliens on Pluto?
Either you are suffering PMS issues or you just hate God too much to think rationally about Him.
Oh you were quoting someone?
But Koestler is not the only person who studied the phenomena; why is it that his conclusion is the only one you present?
Is it that his conclusion is the only one that suits your interest?
If that is the case, I can play that game too:
"Researchers in Spain have found that many of the individuals claiming to see the aura of people traditionally called "healers" or "quacks" actually present the neuropsychological phenomenon known as "synesthesia" (specifically, "emotional synesthesia"). This might be a scientific explanation of their alleged "virtue". In synesthetes, the brain regions responsible for the processing of each type of sensory stimuli are intensely interconnected. This way, synesthetes can see or taste a sound, feel a taste, or associate people with a particular colour."

Notice that the article gives no significance to the colors. Just that their brains are crosswired.
