I do not mess with Tarot cards, magic crap, psychics, seances, ouji boards or anything else of that nature.
I believe that stuff will open doors to things that are evil in nature. I am by no means religious either but just have always thought this.
Knock on wood I have never seen a ghost or had any weird thing happen to me since I was real little.

Well, the same could be said for a number of aspects of quantum physics and related fields. Just because something cannot be easily reproduced upon command, does not mean it can't happen. It may just mean we don't know all of the parameters necessary to recreate the conditions identically from one instance to another.

It is a useless question if it based on a massive assumption that has never been demonstrated correct.
