When is the last time someone was so afraid of a LIVING HUMAN BEING? Fuck, stop being pussies you guys! I’m pretty sure a living human could fuck up your world a hell of a lot more than a spirit could.
Sorry Alex, your threads about the concept of god and religion do make sense to me and I agree with almost all of your ideas. I’m just saying that I saw it and experienced the Ouija board with my own eyes, it’s more convincing than any theory can ever be.
@Sea Monkey. Its all good dude, I don’t take offense. haha. I’m just being skeptical as I’ve never experienced any of this sort of thing. I’m definitely curious and have an open mind about it, but at the same time I’m lead to believe the experiences that happened aren’t connected to the physical board in any sense.
@ Alex, Good man :)
I’m with you about the physical board, I think the board acts more like an invitation for spirits that don’t belong here. I’ve heard that it can also work with paper and letters on it. Maybe it’s just easier for the spirits to communicate if they have your permission.
I don’t recommend playing with it though, just youtube ‘ouija board experiences’, there are so many negative experiences out there – 99% of them can be fake, but you don’t want to be that 1%. I showed my friend at work this video because she brought the topic up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dh4uK3YHsNQ and she said that is exactly what happened to her friend when they played with it except her friend passed out.
@Alex- The idea that there are evil spirits lurking around waiting to ruin our day is as unlikely as there being a God. If you want to believe either, you will. You will see spirits or God everywhere and so affirm your beliefs. The belief is the reference point for everything.
I tried on the idea of a God. I tried the Ouija board. I’ve made many willing attempts to validate such beliefs, yet always come up empty handed. My participation on this site is part of my ongoing investigation and, so far, my investigation has concluded that the odds of Gods and monsters being real are unimaginably low, and of equal magnitude. One belief is no more valid than the next. When I try to ‘believe’ any one thing I am faced with an infinite number of possible realities and, as such, cannot believe in anything. I can only anticipate the likelihood of something.
So yeah, you are right, I don’t understand your concept of a God or anyone else’s, because they are but one of an infinite number of possibilities.
no offense guys, but i think this is pure bullshit. i think you only see results when you are expecting them. ive never tried it, but would be open to do so with a “beleiver” it would be interesting to see what different perspectives are offered from a beleiver and a non-beleiver when they are put through the exact same experience.
anyone want to conduct this experiment?
@dick, why can’t there be an infinite number of possibilities in the universe? Also, maybe the fact that in the back of your mind you already think, “This is BS” makes it so that it appears as BS.
I don’t understand what validates that god and being ‘real’ is unimaginably low. There is no proof of such things, only experience, and if you base your conclusions from that, then you are therefore no more right, and have no more insight than any other person.
@euphoria I’m so glad it helped. Repeat the sage smudging every few months or every month. Whatever you feel comfortable with or whatever you think is best. I’m so sorry that you had to lose your parents.
I think everything happens for a reason though. Maybe it’ll make you a stronger person and give you the motivation to live a fuller, happier life.
@Alex-Look at it this way, there is a chance that your belief is accurate, but the chance of every belief being accurate is not possible. So the chance of any one belief being accurate is 1 divided by the all the other infinite possibilities, an unimaginably small number.
My attempts to validate these fairly commonly held beliefs was approached with wilful optimism, not with a “this is BS” perspective. The only insight I have is that beliefs can take on any form and can range anywhere from highly probable to highly improbable, and that in assessing the probability it is necessary to remove belief from the analysis.
@dick, okay, well we know the earth goes around the sun, but only a handful of people actually know the path the earth takes. Does this make everyone else wrong? You take it too literally man. Concept of god=1 belief, Concept of no god=1 belief. So by the way I contort it, its now a 50/50 chance. :)
CUUUUURSEEEEES. This reminds me of an episode of House M.D.. A group of kids were doing some shit and they called it a “secret club”.
“A secret club. What’s the secret, they’re all morons?” – House M. D.
Now I have to google this shit, because it seems interesting for my imagination. All the spirits I know are these
“but the chance of every belief being accurate is not possible”
I think we’ve pinpointed the reason you can’t conceptualize beyond the mundane.
Dealing in absolutes is a surefire way to keep yourself ignorant of further knowledge.

If you were an intelligent awareness who fed on a specific frequency of energy, but could not manifest physically, how would you control and herd your food source?
