"Believing" is not, nor should it EVER, be synonymous with reality. Children need to learn the difference as soon as possible.
Fantasy is fun but should never should it be consideration for reality.

Yes, by all means.  Let us waste no time in imposing our own preconceived notions on our offspring.  If they should report seeing or hearing things we cannot, don't bother to discover if their perceptions can be verified or confirmed by any other means at our disposal. If what they report doesn't conform to consensus notions of what is possible, put a stop to it at once.

Wow, you seem to have a chip on your shoulder or something.  Just chillax and give your opinion without being such a smarty pants and you'll come across better.

Just some helpful advice. Take it or leave it.  Save the sarcasm for debating.

As frank said.

yes, It isn't proven that animals can see paranormal but the way you orginally posted you are hinting they can.

Like I am hinting to some one that air is really batman but tiny.

I dont think it's that outlandish an idea, air being tiny batman is more ludicrous to me because A) it goes against any possible hypotheses unless you think of air as something that has a consciousness of it's own, and B) because to those who have read your posts it's obvious you just conjured it up as an example. Plain as a day. But I dont know the first person who made up the idea of animals sensing earthquakes so can't comment on the motive behind the idea and why people started taking up to it.
Point? I dont know. What's the point in saying those things are similiar to begin with when they're not? Unless you have the opinion card, "it's my opinion so it's my right". Yeah... I can have an opinion that 1+1=3 and it's my right too. How about that? But thanks for the idea Brian. I bet you didn't mean it, but it was actually pretty damn smart. Who knows if air was a conscious entity that just always acted on it's whims and would thus be very easy to control by other forces? How would we know the difference? It's very smart if you think of it like that, who knows... but I still wouldn't buy batman.

The question to me is merely whether they can sense impending earthquakes.  [1.]The paranormal and earthquakes are different things.  Wouldn't you think that if animals could sense impending earthquakes that the subject would have been studied enough to resolve it?

To [1.]: I dont know about this. Tulpa, poltergeist, mind-body link (stress, placebo, adrenaline, various other things that I dont think have been named but are there like an alleviating feeling when you come terms with something, that feeling extending to your body). I think we at least have a reason to believe not all the animals are the same in this.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.

Air is very tiny Batman.  I can see that. But of course I'm looney.

I tend to think that some parents read more into their children's play behaviour than there really is. Perhaps they like to think that their children are special, have a rare gift etc. But most of the time, children are just playing.

When I was little, I used to talk to my dolls. Play teacher and pupils or whatever. Of course I made up and acted out dialogues (which were really monologues) for this purpose, but I never thought my dolls were alive and had a mind of their own. The same goes for the invisible guests at children's tea parties. They aren't ghosts, they aren't invisible friends, they are part of a game and shouldn't be paid too much attention by adults. In fact, it would have spoilt my enjoyment of these games pretty much if my parents had tried to engage in them in any way. *lol* "Wouldn't your invisible friend like to come over for dinner tonight?" - "Hell, Mom, NOOOO! *facepalm*" :rolleyes:

I had some weird experiences when I was a kid at night in my bedroom.  Nightmares, most likely.  This all stopped before I was 6-7 years old.  They were very, very early memories.


Yeah I us to have a recurring dream when I was about younger and would wake up and be sick every damn time, but then I had the same dream again but it turned out differently and never had it again nor was I sick when I woke up, Cant forget it.


But sort of on topic when I was younger I us to have an imaginary car, Drove it in the playground every day till I lost it :td: .
