    Some people tend to get upset when I say this but in my honest opinion all popular supernatural events are fake. People are either fooled by a con man, they fool themselves, or they lie. I believe this in regards to ghosts, psychics, telekinesis, demons, monsters, and any other form of magic you can mention.

    This does not mean that I am not open minded. I believe there are parts of nature out there that we have not discovered yet and would probably appear as supernatural if I saw them. I am not referring to those things. I think something that is real and natural would be replicated and verified pretty quickly. Ghosts and other such nonsense are repeatedly debunked.

    The lesson to be learned is that people are very very gullible. People are very easy to fool. It's important to be skeptical in life or else you might fall into this trap yourself. It's not about not being open minded it's about not being dumb.

    All supernatural events are fake and I don't care if it upsets anyone.

    So, I take it you are atheist and miracles don't happen? Just what I can see and what can be proven. What have you seen? What has been proven? When you get to be twice your current age, come back and let's have this discussion again.

    You bet, both in our universe and quantum physics. Why is it that physics at the micro and macro level work under different laws? No, Einstein could not figure that one out either.

    Indeed, we once thought the Earth was the center of the universe and that the planet was flat. Actually, some still believe that. ...and human life, what is that all about?

    I'm probably older than you but that has nothing to do with anything. Miracles fit into what I was talking about. People are either fooled or lie. I can link you to a magician that tells people he doesn't do anything supernatural and then goes on to perform "miracle hearings" on the audience. People are easy to manipulate.

    A lot of supernatural events are real, they're just not what most of the people who witness them think they are.

    I'm looking at you, "Mary."

    Being skeptical and not dumb isn't scientific?

    Stuff happens to everyone. Only the gullible/naive people think it was ghosts/demons/magic.

    If any of this was real it could be easily verifiable just like everything else that is real.

    I'd explain it to you but clearly who are we kidding? You've got your mind made up! And if we go pages and pages and pages about matters not STAR WARS -- well, it's just sad, Martin. Sad.

    Why post at all then? No one is making you come into my thread. If you have something of substance you would like to say then go ahead.

    ANYTHING I SAY ABOUT GHOSTS WOULD BE IMMATERIAL.
