I do challenge some people, but then, there are some people who use these kinds of "alternative" forums to goof on people by inventing issues that
seem to suggest that they've got "special" vexations - thereby suggesting that they, too, are special because of those vexations.
I post on a paranormal board where everyone on it is being sought out by angels and demons and ghosts and shadow people for (they declare) unknown
reasons. These claims are generally followed by an entire history of how their mom and grandmom and whomever is or was gifted in a spiritual sense,
and that they've suffered with being gifted themselves all their lives. It ends up with being more of a bragging fest than a "help me" call-out,
and frankly, if there are that many angels and demons and ghosts and whathaveyou jumping out at so many people, then why is it that I can't even get
a decent video clip on YouTube that's not obviously hoaxed, or a Ghost Channel reality series that gives more than footsteps and knocks on wood?
I, for one, honestly believe that if someone is claiming something that's insanely difficult to logically square with itself as a foundational
premise, then why not challenge the person claiming it? I get attacked visciously if I post anything on the 9/11 threads that suggests anything other
than 19 Arabs conquered the US, and if that's fair, then it's fair to challenge someone who claims that he travels via Astral projection to Cancun
for Spring Break. Or that someone else is battling with guilt over being notified that they've just been chosen to lead the Voltarians in rebellion
against the Frotillians, and doesn't know what to do with their cat for the next few months.
Claim to be the next incarnation of Ganesha, and you've got to expect to have someone take you on about it. If you actually are the next incarnation
of Ganesha, then you'll already know to expect this, and it won't bother you.
