Of course skeptics probably want psychic ability to exist more than non-skeptics because we non-skeptics already know it exists. :D


See how ProfWag says that your experience is not valid. ProfWag calls every paranormal claim a fraud. Yep,ProfWag keeps needling the believers with the word ''valid''.......

ProfWag believers he is right in his wording.....

HF2, please re-read my post. It says "valid, repeatable experiments," and I do NOT say that your experience is not valid. Two completely different things.

There you go again ProfWag, you have been so brainwashed by science gone psuedo, that you belive the paranormal must be repeatable.

So no one off paranormal event for Profwag incase he calls foul.

And what about Randi's MDC, stating that there's no way to prove if Ghosts or God exist?...... Only Real Magicians know Real Science.....

Hmmmmm, let's see. If I see a ghost, but never see it again, does that prove ghosts exist?

How could it? You said if seeing ''A'' ghost..... Then you say the plural version ''ghosts''.

So answer your own question. Unless you are continuing to call foul.

Allow me to correct myself. If I see a ghost, but never see it again, does that prove a ghost existed?

Yes.

Well, there you go. That should solve any and all debate on ghosts.

ProfWag now believes in Ghost's existence due to other people's experiences.


ProfWag is officially a believer through FAITH

Yea, imagine that.
And, just to ensure that people know this, it burns my ass to no end when people put words in mouth. Okay, I've got that off my chest now.

I have to respectfully disagree with you ProfWag. It's not 'putting words in your mouth' it's more of an unsubstantiated, incorrect claim.
