    Do you think that psychics can really do what they claim they can or are you a skeptic?

    Do you think there is some truth to psychics and what they claim they can do? Or are you, like me, a skeptic?

    I don't believe if psychics at all but believe god could impart wisdom on someone if they are worthy.

    i saw a movie with matt deamon the psychic ... can't remember the name. if people can do what was showed in the movie then i do believe they talk to something ... but it's definitely not the dead person's soul.

    I don't believe in psychics at all. I have seen shows on them, and how they are fraudulent. Sometimes they just give open-ended answers. There is nothing bad about it, but I am extremely skeptical and am yet to have my mind changed on psychics.

    it's 99.9999% a load of crap. there are maybe a few real psychics and even they aren't accurate most of the time.

    I Think all psychics are BS!
    There is no evidence that any of them are telling the truth and asking questions that fit a majority is just their way of convincing people that they are genuine.

    I think there are good psychics and bad ones..I visited one once many years ago and as soon as I walked into the room and sat down she was looking down. She looked down and around on the floor and then looked at me and asked "did you have a cat?" I was astounded and said "yes". She continued on "he was black and white, with a very big bib and long whiskers"...yes, I whispered. "well, he's here with you and always is with you. He wasn't ready to go but is happy now."
    I nearly dropped out of my chair. She decribed "Conan" to a T. He had lost control of his bathroom functions and had to be put down. When the vet first put the needle in, it missed his vein and he was still awake...the vet had to do it again. It's the biggest mistake I've ever made in my life....I should have taken Conan home at the very moment the vet "missed".  loved him the best I could...and cleaned up all of his messes until he was "ready". It's a regret I live with every day...but it proved to me that this psychic knew what she was talking about. She had no idea who I was....or that I once owned a cat named Conan.

    Perhaps most paranormal activity is bogus, but there is some that is legitimate.

    I'm not particularly psychic, but I have been outside of this physical body with full visual perception. And I've created several events of "mind-over-matter" -- or more accurately, "spirit-over-matter."

    Doubt (the key active ingredient in skepticism) is a powerful source of creation. It is to the paranormal what water (rain) is to fire. What scientists don't realize is that they are creating, too, in an experiment on paranormal or psychic abilities. It's rather funny to see them "prove" to themselves that there is nothing to a psychic claim, when they are clearly tilting the scale back toward the status quo -- ordinary physical reality.

    Overall I do think that most of it is put on for a show, but we do the same with WWE and soap operas. Who cares? It's entertainment. If someone doesn't enjoy it don't participate. But I have heard of things like the mothman and things like that that have a lot of evidence supporting it.
