Its about emunas chachomim

On Hirhurim, someone wrote this comment:

"How do we know that the Maharal did not make a golem? How do we now that the Chofetz Chaim did not exorcise a dybbuk? The same way we know that no one has been abducted by aliens and that there is no Bigfoot. COMMON SENSE."

I responded with:

Err, common sense also dictates that seas don't split, food doesn't fall from heaven, and rocks don't turn into wells. Its not about common sense. Its about emunas chachomim. One of the 48 kinyanei Hatorah. If you lack it, you lack an understanding of Torah. And if you lack an understanding of Torah, your opinions are worthless.

Need I say more?
