DMC12 asks :** “I wanted to ask if this is acceptable, for a Catholic to believe in the possibility of some completely natural … mental abilities of humans.”**
Hmm, well first, there is a BIG difference between believing that something exists, and accepting that an unusual thing has just happened before your very eyes.
So, If I saw someone Levitate in the room I was in, that viewing IS my experience.
And, if I then went around telling people of that Levitation, it wouldn’t (necessarily) be that I believed it.
Second, another difference is between believing that a supernatural force caused that action, and some sort of Magic trick.
Magicians use illusions to make their audience think (or, maybe even BELIEVE) that a supernatural event occurred.
So, a “Christian” witness to a Levitation, can either think that what he saw was ABSOLUTELY real, or keep a little skepticism in his Mind.
OK, now to the issue at hand.
Is levitation possible (at all) to occur?
Well, if it IS possible, then it seems to me that a so-Gifted person would demonstrate his “Power” to a scientist, who could validate that no “Trick” had caused the event.
Then, everyone would be FREE to fully BELIEVE in the possibility of Levitation.
Beyond that, I do NOT think that God minds if people BELIEVE in the actuality (or, seeming reality) of a supernatural event.
So, the quick-and-easy answer to “Can a Catholic believe in Telekinesis” … is … Heck Yeah.
Now, the issue that you did NOT discuss is, would God be un-Happy if a Christian began to study about this Levitation thing, and attempt to practice it.
That is a much-Closer question.
God does NOT want Christians (or Jews) to practice the Occult.
So, if a Christian believes that he can produce Levitation through the action of the Holy Spirit, then that seems like a perfectly valid attempt.
But, if a Christian attempts to draw on any OTHER source for the power to do this, Hmm not so Good.
God once said (in a Clay Tablet that He gave to Moses) : I am the Lord your God, don’t go trying to worship other gods (or call on them to give you supernatural powers).
