Me too. I used to believe in every freaking thing, ouija boards, ghosts, demons, ufos, aliens, past life regression, all the crazy stuff. Our college
had a class on the local ghosts that a museum historian taught -- Ventura was claimed to be one of the most haunted regions in California.
I scared myself silly, but never saw any real thing. Never saw anything that couldn't be explained rationally. I guess I know too much about how life
really works, after my checkered past, to believe in things with no real evidence at this point in my life.
And Occam's Razor ... well, it's like the #1 Law in the MM universe.
I think my ex always jumping to the most outlandish and worst possible conclusions put me off believing anything that I couldn't see, touch, feel,
hear or smell directly.
So occasionally I go to ATS, but I have to confess that I have to sit on my hands to not answer some of the stuff I think is wacko (and, no, I'm not
gonna say what). And PTS is cool, but I have enough going on right now in real life to want to get all het up over what a bunch of rich guys playing
at popularity contest are doing.
So, what is your favorite or least favorite topic, and why?
I love the Rant forum. I think a good rant can be cleansing. I use it frequently.
Catharsis is catharsis, if you find an outlet for it, use
I seem to spend a lot more time on the Theology board than anywhere else. It's helping me learn to use critical thinking properly, and to keep my
cool when things get out of hand -- useful in the courtroom. I also go through spurts of interest in things (something I got from my step dad I think,
he of serious serial hobbies) and immerse myself in them until I get bored, then move on. At the moment I'm really interested in studying the how and
why of belief in the supernatural.
I also like the Dreams forum because sometimes I find it relaxing to help someone figure out what their dream is trying to tell them.
