And that is why you can only say truly that you believe you know that telepathy works.

Hi Susan Hi Gerda, I suggest a better way of saying Gerda’s point of view on telepathy, would be to say that Gerda has experienced messages from other people in her life and feels that these experiences are evidence of telepathy. Gerda’s statements (I.e., declarative sentences) are statements about those experiences, So those statement explain her beliefs.

The notion that other people do or don’t experience telepathy (I don’t), or that Gerda’s experience is continuous or not are not really relevant. To prove or disprove Gerda’s experiences would take a tremendous scientific effort IMO which few scientists would really care to do. So Gerda’s beliefs remain just that, subjective belief . But her experiences of telepathy remain to her as real as looking at the maple tree in my back yard.

This is how I see the logic behind a Gerda’s experience and her statements about that experience. If you think about it, it is similar to Susan’s experience and belief statements about her atheism. IMO, of course. Hope this helps.
