I get what you're saying. However, I didn't jump to any conclusions. I spent months studying & reading, talking to people, thinking about it, processing it, etc. However, if one is of sound mind, not under the influence of drugs, of average intelligence, reasonably educated, one's experiences can often be accepted as real. Of course there are exceptions to this, but you know, if you see it and hear it, and have your experiences confirmed by others, it would be unreasonable to reject the experience out of hand. Lack of "scientific" explanation doesn't invalidate the event.
For me, I wouldn't say a certain amount of "education" should be a standard of validity either.. I actually think god may appear more often to those in need and that just may be in poor environments where education is not as available. I dont see what education has to do with it. The less preconceived bias the better I would say.
