Why would they?
I can understand being "amazed" but I do not understand the part about invoking a "belief in the supernatural" bit.
It makes one think of God
Thats what I really meant but worded it to fit the title.
If it doesn't make you in particular think of God then perhaps I dont know how to describe it to you. Somethings have no words to describe them, but I honestly think you know what I mean. Looking at these scenes does something, moves us in a way, allows us to feel the mystery, complication, antiquity, unknowingness, majesty of life....
These are the same feelings invoked when in the presence of or in contemplating the divine.... (or when a supernatural hand has made something happen for you)
..hey what do you know! I think I did describe what I meant to say.

The letter kills but The Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6
Non-ambiguity and non-contradiction are one sided and thus unsuited to express the incomprehensible. -Jung

No, I don't. That is why I inquired.
True, scenes can be nice but for me when I see something nice I certainly do not think of god, either metaphorically or a anthropocentic/personified one, I might think of the natural processes that made them.
