It is one thing to believe in ghosts/spirits/energy but another thing entirely to insinuate that the board itself poses a danger as the title of the
OP does. Ghosts or supernatural forces, if they do exist, would not require a board with letters on it to communicate and anyone suggesting a Ouija
board is dangerous is only feeding the fires of silly superstition.
If a Ouija board is magical than so is my keyboard, and I could be talking to spirits right now if I wanted... but that's just it what is the point
of the board? Couldn't these spirits talk directly to people, why do they require an alphabet? These boards aren't made of some magical material, in
the US they are considered a board game often sold right next to Scrabble and Monopoly.
The folly of the board comes from the fact that human beings are touching it and influencing the motion of the pointer whether consciously or
subconsciously they somehow convince themselves that it is a spirit they were talking to. Now perhaps if the board pointer moved by itself without
ever being touched by a person I'd be more inclined to believe something paranormal was going on.
Don't get me wrong, I believe in and have experienced the paranormal but I still look at it through skeptical eyes particularly where superstition is
