So what do you believe?

Personally I dont' believe anyone can actually read peoples minds or know what's going to happen. Cards, palm readings, I think it's all just a plot to get people's money. The things that they say are so vauge...well this show makes it obvious that anyone can do it!

You took the words right out of my mouth, Serenity. It's just not probable. Angel.gif

I don't think it's very likely either. I wouldn't believe any particular person claiming to be a psychic without some serious evidence. However... I can't let go of the *possiblity* that such powers exist and love to read (and occationally write) fiction that includes one form of 'psy' powers or another.

I know the Bible condemns 'soothsayers' (I don't have the book/chapter/verse on hand)... but that could be used to support either side. Either there was a power there, and it's use was condemned (possibly even given by satan/demon)... or those claiming such power were condemned because the power did not exist.

I used to run (and am still a member of) a Christian SciFi group that occationally debated what psy powers (if any) were 'ok' to attribute to Christian characters... and other such things. So it crosses my mind now and then in the 'real world' context as well. *If* those powers exist... are they all necessarily 'evil'/wrong... or only those that fell under the Biblical definition of soothsaying and such?

Eh... too deep for after midnight... and the rest of the time I have loud kids messing with my thought process... so I'll just stick with my 'maybe' and let you all ponder the deep thinking to whatever degree you chose... lol.

But... as others have said... This is one reason why we watch Psych around here! Very little deep thinking, but I still get my 'crime drama' format as well. :)

I'm also a christian and I as far as the plot for the next episode goes...the comunicating to the dead...I dont' know...I guess I do believe that people can get mixed up in that kind of stuff, with demons and such. But yeah...I guess my answer is a little more complicated too. I've read this series by Bill Myers called The Forbidden Doors that go over the "supernatural" and psychics and stuff so that's where I get some of my thinking from

I gues that makes three of us then, I'm a Christian too. Go Jesus! Clown.gif I definitely believe in demons possessing people since there's a lot of that stuff in the Bible, but I don't know about demons possessing people to give them psychic abilities. It's a little farfetched.

Ooh, old topic time. I lost the link to this site, but it was just emailed to me, so...yay; here I am xD

I don't believe in psychics either. I mean, I believe that some people may know some things (like my great-grandfather used to have premonition dreams). But fortune tellers and the like? Nope.
