Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence - Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)

Sheldrakes method for testing his hypothesis to find a "staring effect" was quite poor, a full article breaking it down may be found here - http://www.csicop.org/si/2000-09/staring.html

It is very simple to believe things because they sound good or match up to what we want to feel and hear, but in the end if you buy into every claim without a healthy dose of scepticism you will be played as a dupe.

This happens to me too. My dreams are about plane crashes

i've never had what i'd exactly call a psychic experience but i get those gut feelings about something, or sometimes i'll be talking to a friend of mine and one of us will finish the others sentance or say the same thing at the same time. or i'll be thinking about someone and then they call or if i'm on the computer they'll come online. stuff like that.

I've had some weird moments. I think one of the most vivid recently was the last time I spoke with my grandma. I knew it was the last time I would see her. But I dismissed it as sheer imagination.

That's been happening alot to me this year. But it's a bit hard to prove after the fact.

In college, I had a professor who was big into paranormal stuff...which was why all of his students chose to write papers on a related topic. I did mine on tarot cards, regarding cold readings. When my professor and I met outside of class one day, we got to talking about stuff, and he shared a story. He said that he used to do tarot card readings at parties, just for fun. One time, he was reading a woman's fortune, and he suddenly had a vision of a pair of feet swinging in a garage. When he said that to her, she told him that her husband had recently hanged himself in their garage. My professor does not believe in psychic powers, so he just took it to be a total coincidence. Still...kinda freaky...and it also shows how things can just coincidentally happen like that.

I just remembered about this recent event too that was pretty damn coincidental.

I was talking on the phone to a friend of mine from the Ryan Adams board. While doing so, I accidentally cut my left shoulder...right as the cut was made, my friend said, "Ow!" I asked him what happened...and he said it was a pain in his shoulder. I asked which shoulder, and he said it was his left. A little while later, we got disconnected. I waited for him to call me back, as I didn't want to wake up anyone in his house. While waiting, I decided to get a glass of water, which I rarely do at night. A few minutes later, he called back. He said he would have called back right away, but he had decided to go get a glass of water.

Or you can just go through your life doubting every single thing unless it is right in front of your face. These are the ones that usually turn out to be dupes.

I am not saying psychics are necessarily real, but where is the open mind?

An open mind will often make the greatest discoveries because they test what is staring them in the face. We live in a universe of energy, matter and force. It is from this that we unlock the rest of it.

Science trumps superstition anyday.

Ok - I'm a scientist and one of the most skeptical people I know but, I can't explain some of the dreams that I have had.

For instance, dreaming of the death of a distant relative, who I hadn't any contact with for at least five years, dieing. The next morning my father got a call to say she had died.

It doesn't happen all the time, I am still waiting for the lotto numbers to come up, but when it does happen its really weird.

I have had many experiences that make me wonder if I have had psychic experiences.

happens to me all the time.

and i mean, all the time.

my dreams tell me loads of things, i dream about real life events that have happened or will happen, i also have dreams of celebrities and some have come true.



I believe in alot of this psychic stuff. too many "things" happen to me for it all to be a coincidence.

I also read cards for people, often i am right with the outcomes...

I do it with movies. I think of some line from a movie out of no where old and new and the next day it will be on TV. Weird.

I believe that there are energies around us and if we are open to it, we can "hook" into it. I used to do it more often, but I was able to predict things before they happened. Like once, I was in a room with a few people and one asked where a friend of mine was. At that moment, I told them and I knew she would be the next person to walk into the room and she was. They couldn't believe it but it just seemed so natural to me. I know it when it's happening - it really is like "hooking into a wave".

Also, that John Edwards (not the VP candidate - the "Crossing Over" guy) seems to be for real. I know of someone who lost her husband on 9/11 and he was able to tell her things that he could never have known on his own.
