  • Some people needs to believe this kind of things, it’s human nature created by God on purpose to believe something meta physics or beyond their logic , something , anything , even if you don’t believe in God , you call this laws of “nature “ and ask about how these laws just happened to form , you will say they just do automatically ....

  • imo most industries are predatory (pharmaceutical, legal, technological, health, etc.) and will do anything to exploit the general public for profit. I don't condone such practise, but while we're berating these 'psychics' for exploiting the poor, let's also have a look at those industries who claim to save lives but really they are just money making operations. Cancer medication and treatment is unaffordable to most of the world's population for example, and while fake psychics are despicably callous in their methods, at least their industry doesn't have a direct life-death consequence

  • I think part of this is unfair. If you asked me "do you believe in psychics" yes i do. There are a number of studies that were actually properly controlled that suggest something is going on. But it's not much just enough to move the needle as it were. That does not equal "oh my God they can talk to dead people give them all of your money." Personally I think if you put all of the "psychic" power of all the people claiming to be psychic on tv together I wouldn't trust that to predict the weather let alone talk to a dead person. And I wouldn't give any of them your money let alone mine.

    • @WitchyWoman1024 sorry for the disrespect that dude gave you. As an Atheist, I don't believe in the "spirit world" or "afterlife" either. But just as I see all other religions as being wrong, mine just as easily could be as well. I'm not sure if what you say is the truth, I've never actually dealt with a Pagan. All I know is that we'll never know what happens after death until we die ourselves. Maybe I'm right... maybe I'm completely wrong. Maybe there is a God, maybe reincarnation is real, maybe nothing happens after death. Any religion could be correct, hell, maybe ALL religions are correct. Maybe, just maybe, NO religion is correct. That's why I respect other religions, even though I don't believe it. Hell, there was a time in my life where I would have asked my future self why I was an Atheist. Nobody really has the truth, and I think that's what that guy and everyone else needs to understand. Religion is only a practice until you die. Well, that was a long speech just to say "sorry for that douche's ignorance"...

Unfortunately James passed away in 2020. I hope someone else could pick up his mantle and become a "professional skeptic" and debunker of all bullshit.

  • One time, long ago, the tug I was sailing on, was asked by the police to connect with a pontoon that was anchored on the river. A psychic had told that he had “seen” that a missing person was under a floating object. We had to direct our propwash towards the pontoon to flush the body from under it. Of course nothing came out from under the pontoon. The only thing the exercise achieved was the fact we came home late that friday...

  • A psychic in California, called The liberty County sheriff's Department here in Texas. And said she had a Vision of dead children in my neighbor's basement and buried in their yard.. when the officer got there, he knock on the door, no one was home, but he seen a speck of Blood on the door, next thing we know every police officer in the Tri-County area, and the FBI was there, they had my road shut down and blocked for a freaking week. There was 10 news helicopters flying over our house. Come to find out the couple was out of town. The husband was a truck driver and they were in Colorado trying to rush home. A judge in liberty County signed a search warrant for their property and found nothing.. The couple sued that psychic. They didn't get much money from her, but the police arrested her and extradited her to Texas. After everything settled down, I talked to my neighbor and his wife. They were so embarrassed. she said it was one of the worst things that she's ever been through in her entire life.

  • Personally, I'm on the fence about psychic abilities, but I am 100% sure anyone charging money to talk to someone's dead grandmother is full of bullshit. If psychic abilities are real, I don't think they work like that. Especially because, if I were someone's murdered child, I would never talk to some asshole charging my parents hundreds or thousands of dollars to be told basically nothing, but to give up anyway. I'd find someone to do it for free, and be telling them the exact date and time, who did it, and where my body is. Also I'd 100% be haunting the shit out of the idiot that murdered me

  • Funny stuff... except that the scientific evidence for telepathy, remote viewing, and remote influence is extensive and reputable within the fields which investigate such matters. Problems with "psychic readings" a) you don't need to be psychic, you just have to be comfortable telling psychologically compelling lies in a predatory manner b)the psychic faculties which research in has confirmed over the last 60 years are generally not reliable enough to sell in nice little retail packages c) the confusion caused both by fake psychics and by know-nothings who got through psych 101 then get on tv to give what they think the final answer is., causes people who might be experiencing really weird shit to end up getting medicated with stuff that damages the nervous system permanently, without even the option of trying to figure out whats going on in a logical and serious manner

  • Religion is responsible for brainwashing people into rejecting science over faith. And you need a whole lot of faith to believe psychics aren't con artists when every time they're tested with scientific methods they fail. EVERY TIME! Similarly it doesn't matter how much evidence you present to a Young Earth Creationist that the Universe is 13.7 BILLION years old and the Earth is 4.6 billion years old and humans evolved along the branch of primates, they will STILL hold on to their superstitions. They're like Trump supporters.
