People who claim to talk to the dead are all scam artists. Psychics are all con artists as well. Im sure there are people that are smarter and have different insight like artists or mathematician whatever and some that have hyper common sense and can figure things out quick but here is why Im saying this with certainty. Im sure most of you know who James Randi is, Randi has offered a million dollars to anyone that can prove their paranormal capabilities. Randi offered this challenge in the late sixties and to this day no one has beat the challenge. Randi also had a show in the 70s that had guests who were Reikki masters, aura readers, Uri Geller , other psychics, astrologers and they all failed miserably. The videos of his shows and lectures are on youtube and are thoroughly entertaining for anyone interested in the paranormal. After watching lots of these videos and seeing the people fail miserably, I have to say I no longer believe what these people are claiming to be, any of them.

Randi exposes Psychic Sylvia quite often and here is why, she told people their missing kids were alive and some dead and she was wrong in each case and she charged the money to do it. Faith healers he has exposed, there are no real faith healers and I never thought there were, I personally didn't need him for that one.

I believe some people have some level of intuition others don't have , just like I was saying above, some can draw a picture perfectly and some cant at all or play music , those aren't the only talents there are, lots of different ones.

Then again, a true psychic probably wouldn't care about money or advertise their abilities, so my title was a little confident so Ill probably get it big time for that lol anyhow Im leaving my mind open for a just maybe there is a real psychic somewhere but the people that claim to speak to the dead are fakers and scammers.

There is a James Randi video where the guy wins but it was an april fools joke.

Here is a "psychics humiliated video"

Depends on context.

I know a guy who can read you like the pages of a book that you yourself haven't opened. Now, does that mean he's got a paranormal gift ... or ... that he has an uncanny ability to predict what you're going to do.

To some ... that's psychic. YMMV

So your proof for absolute fact is a guy who made a million dollar challenge and lots of videos. What if he's hyper smart as you put it and manipulated the out comes etc...
Would he then in turn be a sham like everyone else you say is and in turn your fact be wrong.

You know instead of posting another one of these threads you could have just posted in one of the many others that say the same thing with because someone else said so as fact.

Seems like your trolling for an argument.

Well good point, he was a magician lol But if anyone has some proof of the existence of a real psychic I am totally open to it. Randi didn't convince me, I have always known it, even Chris Angel says they are all fake. Chris angel actually says its all a trick (the chris angel stunts) he flat out says THEY ARENT REAL so he actually isn't deceiving people like the psychics he is tricking them but telling that he is tricking them. Im not against a real psychic being real, Id love to experience one, Im against the fake psychic taking someones money and not telling them its fake, like Sylvia Brown.

I have found people that like to use absolutes like ALL are always wrong.

No one can prove to me I don't have some sort of intuition or inner voice. My own experience has made me a believer in myself and some sort of sixth sense. I believe as we humans evolve we will only become better at using these abilities.

ETA: I am not claiming to be a psychic. I just believe in my intuition.

I do know that in Missouri there was a very old woman that would use tea leaves to tell your future.Have no idea what her name was,it was back in the 70s. Was well know in the Ozarks for being accurate. She would fix you a cup of tea,have you drink it down,then have you pour out the remainder in your saucer and read it. My grandmother went to her and she told my grandmother all kinds of things about what was to come.And from my understanding she was correct 100%. I'm sure she is dead by now,but every now and then,comes someone that has a true 'gift' and really can tell things that are going to be.

Why ... to be ridiculed!

If you care to explore the Paranormal threads you will find many, many stories.

Here is a start.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It is one of mine.

Now, come up with some reason not to like it.

I agree, many psychics are fraud ..... but ALL, no ... I think not.

You seem to think in absolutes, the truth is usually in the middle somewhere.

Good day

I cannot judge mediums, I also think that there are many out there that decieve for financial, power or what ever gain it may be.
But I can share some personal experience.
I cant speak to the dead, but things happen that we don't understand at all, at least I don't.
I have an ex spouse who's mother passed. I was invited to the funeral, so I went. We have no bad feelings and continue to be friends.
However when I did go to the funeral I went alone and my current spouse could not attend. The same evening my current spouse tells me she has just seen the deceased in our house standing in the doorway. The problem here is, that she described to me what the woman was wearing, without seeing her or knowing anything....so I can believe that she was telling the truth, how could she give me such accurate detail. Her description was exactly as they dressed or prepared her at the funeral home.

The Scole Experiments can be researched for further understanding, a team from the UK that have been involved in afterlife experiments.

If anyone has information that Scole is a hoax please let me know so that I can revisit the research.

Kind regards.

I tend to think this stuff is hogwash as well....but....and this is a big BUT.....there is so much out there that we don't know....like Snarl said....people do have the ability to read people....

If there is some ability to speak to the dead.....then I have to assume it is a spiritual gift....and there is only good and evil....no in between. So either it was a gift by...God or by the other guy....it doesn't feel Godly to me

I know your just trolling but I'll still reply-

The majority of psychics I know do not ask for money, all we want to do is share information from the other side or from higher places. Please don't put us all in the category of 'looking for money'. I have never once asked for money - I share my gift with everyone who is open to accept it.

You are entitled to your opinions, as is everyone else. But your opinion is not reason enough for anyone to prove anything, certainly not themselves just for you. It does not matter if you believe, know or just have an opinion that matches millions of others.

There is no point sharing visions of anything with anyone here unless it relates directly to them. If not then anything is wasted effort.

The thing I love about experiencing what exists all around us in each moment, is it does not matter what anyone thinks about it. It is what it is and our beliefs about it all are nothing in comparison.

Mediums. We exist, and if we provide various honest services with our time and energy that helps people in need, then we should be able to charge a fee as any Specialist does. And your opinion is of little consequence.

But, I will agree that there are many, many shams in the Industry. Those who seek to make a name for themselves, who focus on creating wealth to show their successes, are not worthy of anyone's attention. They are mostly show, with little of substance to offer.

One small piece of advice if I may, Focus on You and what you are Doing in the world. Allow others to be themselves even if you disagree with what they do; it is not your place to Judge.

Indeed it is all about context. I saw your post and it immediately reminded me of a friend I have as well. This girl is crazy, she can look at a person for 10 seconds and tell you exactly what they are thinking and feeling. (Yes I am being a bit hyperbolic) But seriously, I have never seen a person get away with telling a lie to this girl's face and she is intuitive on a completely eerie level. Even with complete strangers.

Indeed that is psychic to some..Id love to have that talent.

Great post OP.

Randi is not the only one who debunks these myths. Derren Brown has been doing it for years too.



That's just one of his videos, you may be interested to see more.


Here is one in which you may like too, very interesting indeed.

I'm conflicted about this.

I tend to not believe the majority of the time...except when I watch Colin Fry.

Colin Fry is a spiritualist medium on UK TV (actually watching him now).

He's very good.

Of course, he could be just a very good trickster.

I feel the best of them, never, ever advertises anything, and most will not charge if they are already aware that you can't afford it. The best are usually sought out or known just by word of mouth alone. Many of the good ones won't even bother with those who are looking for a show---but, will always be there to help others in need. As for shams, yes their are many, and most will be found out at some point in time eventually. Maybe you'll be lucky enough one day to draw someone or something to you that will open yours eyes.

Look throughout the ages this stuff has been happening and do you know what the conclusion to it is? Simply don't do it because

1) When the dead are gone they are gone

and

2) If there are such things as angels and demons the odds are you are speaking to a demon impersonating the person you believe you are contacting.

Now that may seem a bit stupid but if people can speak to ghosts then you can rest assure demons are real.
