I don't know if these things are real or not but it sure does make life more interesting to think that they are.

for you ghost and demonology buffs out there here is a great link to scare the pants off of you.

It suprises me when I read magicians on here believing in Ouija boards and psychics etc.I always thought magicians were above such silliness.

And some of us thought skeptics had open minds. I guess we all live and learn.


Harry, it appears you missed the main focus of this thread and the advice given, as well as the humor that came at the end.

Tony: I believe the skeptics Harry was referring to DO have open minds. They are sseking confirmation. They are not the party that backed down from the challenge.

Harry didn't miss anything. He was responding to JAlenS's "ON ANOTHER NOTE."

Harry IS the one I am commenting on.

I'm sorry I must have misunderstood the following:

It did not seem like an open minded comment to me, nor did it read like there was an understanding of the thread.

It's pointless even commenting on people's belief in paranormal it seems,without being called closed minded.
Tony I haven't missed the point of the thread,you will see I responded earlier.I was referencing comments made by two members who believe they contacted spirits through a piece of wood!

Show me evidence for claims and I will happily step down from my stance.Anyhow this is for another thread sometime.

UPDATE: The seance went on without a hitch last night. I have to admit that, although I do not fully believe in the power of a seance or the quija, I found the whole experience to be a bit better than I had assumed it would be. Even though I'm still not convinced that there is a spirit world, we apparently made several "small" contacts during the hour and I think that my sister feels a bit better about everything overall.

I did perform for everyone, but only before the actual seance. I think that it helped to lighten the mood a bit and my sister even got a kick out of it.

Thanks for the input and support guys!!!!

I'm glad your sister is feeling better, that is the most important thing.
It reads like you did a fantastic job as a brother. Your mother would be proud.

Hmmmmm. Fascinating how skeptics can possess an acute desire to bend any truth either by ommittance or misrepresentation.

It should not be necessary to point out that the ouija board is merely a tool and to suggest that two members wrongly "believe they contacted spirits through a piece of wood" is not only unfair but absolutely absurd. This is a typical skeptic's assertion and the tactic merely serves to throw the discussion off track.

Sorry, Harry H. My post above sounds stronger and more aggressive than I meant it. It sounds insulting, but I did not mean it that way.

Well, magicjack1977, it sounds like you did a good job all around with the seance.

On a different note...

Gee, it sounds like Ouija boards were years ahead of internet chat rooms! Smile

I don't know if it's real or not but things are more interesting with them(spirits and whatnot) around. Chat rooms included.

Wow. Let me say first, to the gentleman who started this thread that I am sorry for you loss. Then let me say way to listen to what we had to say! You were lucky that your experience was positive as it could have turned out as Annabelles did or any of the others. To the gentleman who is in disagreement with certain beliefs entertained by some of the magicians here, I say sir, there is an animal on this planet, that most surely exists, but you have not seen it nor have you heard of it. You do not belive it exists, yet it does. If you settle on the absolute idea that your world is a certain way, then you never take the steps to explore what might be. You limit your knowledge. Simply disbelieving that a tiger exists, does not mean that it does not.

Think what you will, I know what experiences I've had with the supernatural. I've made my own conclusions. What experiences have you had? And what conclusions have you arrived at for having had those experiences?

Thanks again guys! My mothers loss was hard on all of us here and we each have had to deal with it in our own way. My sister had a seance and my Dad works on his RC airplane models. I, though, have spent an amazing amount of time chatting online since it happened and I have got to say that if not for the positive support that I've gotten from my forum friends that I may not have gotten through this as smoothly as I had.

Thanks so much!!

I have had only one personal experience with a Ouija board. An elderly aunt of mine had one. She was afraid of them / their power. But at my request she joined me in using it. I asked a very specific question. The planchette began to move beneath my fingers. The reply it spelled surprised me. THe answer later proved absolutely accurate. Did my sub conscious thoughts choose the answer for me? It wqs not my Aunts doing, because she had no background in magic
Very strange indeed.

SO glad your sister is doing better; my sincere condolences on your loss.
