  • What need is there of seeing, in the presence of His gratitude?

Posted 19 August 2010 - 05:44 AM

Hello everyone,

It's rare for me to start a thread but something has been playing on my mind for quite awhile now and I was hoping to gain a different perspective..

I am generally a quite skeptical person and so I tend to only believe in things after I have witnessed/experienced them for myself. I think this is a good quality to have which is why I am quite understanding of other skeptics. For this reason I wish to post a challenge for the psychics or those who think they may be psychic and are wanting some confirmation. This will of course help me and them.

Personally I find it hard to believe in other psychics even though I have had some experiences myself(which I understand is odd but its just my skeptical nature). I find it especially difficult to believe because of the age we live in. We live now where most things are connected to computers which can be manipulated. So we have things like facebook, emails, Google street views and many other ways in which other people can peek through windows into your life... So people can manipulate your web cams to watch you unaware, for another example and its because of this that I find doubt when others apparently do accurate 'readings'. How do I know they havent just done some manipulative reading or something along those lines before giving a reply?

So I have seen others start threads where they have an object they want the psychics to find to prove themselves but honestly how do I know they arnt just friends trying to play up their abilities.. Or if they name/type the object on a pc how do I know the 'psychic' hasnt just manipulated the pc to find their result(or had someone do it for them)? So you see I am very untrusting of computers in regards to psychics. So I tend to be more believing if someone posts a dream or something which might come true a few days later for everyone to see... because that cannot be manipulated because it is already written down. So I tend to be more from that school than from the 'readings' school. And I tend to think that 'psychic powers' are not from us so much but from another source, so it is humbling to understand you are channeling the source, rather than thinking you are the 'power'.

Anyway so for these reasons I wish to post a challenge and only I will know the result. This way it gives people a chance to convert my skeptical nature and to further test themselves. I have seen this done before on this site and so I would like to set the challange myself which is as follows..

*In my room I have some draws which have nothing in them except for one object. I ask for the psychics to tell me what this object is. And if you get it correct or even close, I shall let you all know with a follow up picture.

And you will have to trust me to be honest like I have had to trust others who have apparently done this test before.

I'm intrigued by the notion of psychic abilities as well, Kazahel, although I am skeptical.

I will have a crack at the test, howevere, and say the object is a ball. My first impression was a baseball or softball.

I fully expect to be completely off-the-mark!  :P

a phone? :P
of course, that's a complete guess, would be nice to get it right though :D
I doubt you'll get anyone getting it right (although you might through guesswork) or even having a proper go at it, they'll bring out some excuse along the lines of "well, i do have psychic abilities, but it doesn't work like that, etc, etc."

I'm going to take a shot, for fun. I am interested in others and seeing if anyone is right though...

It is a small piece of paper.

Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

I doubt anyone will guess it. Psychics are not as powerful as they claim to be. I'd be amazed if someone gets this right.

Very interesting. I love it. And yes i have done this before and failed very bad. The first thought that came to me was an AIRPLANE. It might be wrong but the thought came quick. Would love to practice more tests like these. They are so much fun. I am struggling with getting anything close right now. But I will follow the test and see who is the true connector. Thank's for the topic.

Posted 20 August 2010 - 05:27 PM

I'm glad that everyone here is enjoying this thread and having a go. :) I thought it would be good practice and an experiment and just a fun thing to have a go at. So even if you dont think your psychic have a go anyway because you never know, maybe you are. So I would love as many members as possible to just say what pops up in their head when they see the boxes(I'll call them boxes from now on).. and you will get bonus points(of awe)if you can also tell which box the object is in.

So it should only take a second to get a reading or some image pop into your head and if you believe in astral travel you can try that too, be my guest. Do whatever method you believe will give you some insight into the "mystery of the boxes".



After a few more days I will take a picture of what the object is and tell you which box its in(so other members can have a chance to agree with previous posters). And every now and then we can play again "Whats in the Box".   B)
