Readings are interesting, the reader often can Not know, can not Fake what she tells.

Old war on this between Harry Houdini Versus Arthur Conan Doyle.

Houdini found many fakes but do not believe all is fake.

Look you really just make yourself look silly. You should have listened to DF. I pity you for your clear for all to see mental illness because you can't help it. You are making a complete jackass out of yourself but are unable to see it because you're sick.

Try taking some calming medication, they love handing it out, and it stops you from caring so much you feel the need to laugh at death and insult others!! Get help man.... and maybe the man in you will step up!!!

Like most mentally ill people you want to rant and rave against the pharmaceutical industry to strengthen your reasoning to not take your crazy pills. All medications have risks and side effects even Advil! Hell even vitamin c!

Go get help for your mental illness and stay on your medication.

You know, I think you were bullied when you were a kid. Don’t me get wrong we all had run ins with bullies. Some more than others. But I think you were bullied a hell of a lot.
Maybe it was because your size and your grades. That bullying had a sizeable impact on your life. Sarcasm and cynicism comes from your childhood. It could even had derived from a relative.
I’m sorry that happened to you. Today there has been a little more focus on the problem of bullying. I can only hope you don’t pass on those undesirable personality traits to your children and grandchildren.
It's not too late to change.

<quoted text>That's my point ~ how often and how regularly things change..... and whether or not you think it is legitimate, you are probably partaking in their killer chemicals.
And with all due respect to you too, at least you had the sense to realise I was posting stuff written by scientists, where as some of the posters in here thought it was my own stuff.
Actually, much of what you posted was written by journalists, some of whom also have trouble telling the difference between solid research and premature conjecture. More to the point, your scattergun approach to selecting your articles just to prove that you are serious had the opposite effect for me. The writers I respect cite articles sparsely to support points they are trying to make. They stay focused on the matters under discussion. They certainly don't spam a plethora of articles just to prop up a faltering ego.

You don't have to, either. You could relax enough to enjoy the conversation rather than trying to put yourself at the center of it. Trust me, that's not really a comfortable place anyway.

Cheers ~ didn't really mean to put myself at the centre of it, just wanted to prove I am not ignorant on certain topics :)

Thanks for the pointer; now perhaps, you would like to write why you believe in atheism and give us a few links, of varying content, so I might get an understanding of why you believe what you believe! But then again, no need to prove to me anything, we each find that which we seek, and I am not seeking to be an atheist LOL

***Are you able to turn off your psychic ability when you want to? Is it like turning off your cell phone to get some peace and quiet, like when you're having dinner?
Yes, I have to be able to turn it off. But sometimes an energy tries to get through to me when I'm "off duty." I feel a buzzing at the base of my neck. It's like I'm on eternal "vibrate" in case of an emergency.

At JREF, we offer a one-million-dollar prize to anyone who can show, under proper observing conditions, evidence of any paranormal, supernatural, or occult power or event. The JREF does not involve itself in the testing procedure, other than helping to design the protocol and approving the conditions under which a test will take place. All tests are designed with the participation and approval of the applicant. In most cases, the applicant will be asked to perform a relatively simple preliminary test of the claim, which if successful, will be followed by the formal test. Preliminary tests are usually conducted by associates of the JREF at the site where the applicant lives. Upon success in the preliminary testing process, the "applicant" becomes a "claimant."
