Pam you are very clever! I wonder if you made that up or you actually “saw it” using your newfound psychic talent of mind reading???? Oh, I know, you were doing a cold reading….or maybe a warm reading….or maybe a hot reading…..
That damn JE, just keeps shoveling out this stuff and silly little mindless twits that we are, we just lap it…[Read more]
You know I’ve re-read this thread and I still come to the same conclusion and that is that the forum guidelines are what I based my opinions on:
The purpose of this folder is to close the gap of understanding between those who do believe, and those who don’t.
No one is here to be converted.
This is not a debate, this is respectful…[Read more]
No Pam, Thank You! You wrote exactly how I feel. I find those types of “discussions” B-O-R-I-N-G. I am getting the distinct feeling that the JREF people are on a mission here and they need to know that we are not interested in engaging in this ridiculous nonsense.
PLEASE: Go find another forum. There are many places where you can go for this…[Read more]

Well, I normally wouldn’t waste my time replying but I have to this time. You see, I owe so much to Pam and everybody here. If it wasn’t for you guys, how would I ever live in my fantasy world? Besides, I’m tired of reading those big bad books about dead people and using my computer for research.
Now that I have this board to read, I can…[Read more]

But she’d never do it for fear that we may be right! Then what would she do with all her spare time, since she won’t be able to write poison pen articles about JE and all of us?! :p
Thank you Marcia. You did a fantastic job of speaking for all of us.
I think you will find the books very informative and helpful in forming your opinion Gale. If you don’t want to invest that much money at this point you could always borrow them from your library. I often do that if I am not sure I want to own a certain book. I found that I wanted to own them because I learned so much from them, then I went on…[Read more]
You know Bob, I was thinking….(scary thought, I know):rolleyes: but anyway, it seems to me that it is highly unusual for a non-believer to hang out here for any length of time, you being an obvious exception, so this whole topic may be moot, but…..
I have to agree with Pam. If a person’s belief or non-belief is based on what they read or…[Read more]
kimk replied to the topic Is believing in Psychic Abilities, simply "wishfull thinking"? in the forum Answering Skeptics and Debunking Cynics 16 years, 4 months ago
You know Bob, I think the difference is simple: validations take away any wishful thinking. You and I got into a similar conversaton one very late night in chat and I mentioned to you that I had a reading that had so many validations that I just couldn’t come to any other conclusion.
Before seeing JE at a seminar I often wished this type of…[Read more]
