What about all the channeled information available to us? example www.bashar.org
What about the letters arranged in my alphabet soup?
I would be more willing to believe if someone channeled information that could only possibly come from an exterior source - IE - the movement of stars
in a system that has not yet been charted by astronomers, an undiscovered area of physics or related phenomena, etc.
However - even if they were, it is not as though their word becomes Gospel. I have had 'moments of clairvoyance' where I was simply overtaken by
the urge to picture or say something that was beyond my ability to observe with my physical body (such as calling out moves for cards on a friend's
game of solitaire with no way to see what was on the table - describing what someone is wearing over IM, describing my friend's grandmother's house
in Austria, etc). It's a single awkward moment, and then trying for more is simply guessing and my own fabrication.
So - I'm not inclined to believe a whole lot of channeled data. I've also had some bad experiences with that in a relationship - got used to try
and cover for adulterous behavior (or as an excuse). A simple application of logic removed all possibility that there was truth to the claim (though,
perhaps there was some other 'mystical' stuff going on - but it certainly had no bearing on what it was being used to cover for).
Now - I believe it's like any other statement - worth looking into, but not worth taking for granted. If it starts to hold water and support its own
- awesome, if not, then - well, it speaks for itself.
