Do you believe in the paranormal such as ghosts and ouija boards? I tell myself that I do not believe, but a very small part of me does. Must be because I was raised in a christian family (I am now an atheist).
Share your stories involving the paranormal.

If by paranormal you mean waffles, then yes I believe in waffles. If you mean paranormal as in ghosts and supernatural events, however, I would say "lol, nah"
If it were socially acceptable, I would drape myself in velvet.

Ouija boards are ridiculous. They are pieces of cardboard, for Christ's sake

I'm still not sure whether I believe in those things. I have friends who are heavily into all of it and some of the stories they've told me are rather convincing.

I have tried a Ouija board and it seemed to work but I think it is the human mind that tells itself it works. I feel humans have the capability to control what happens to some extent in Minor cases. I do not believe you can do something major but I feel people can influence odds by telling yourself something will Happen. I believe in memories being imprintable on a place, but I do not think you are given the option to return as a ghost. By the way this is coming from an atheist.

My mom has told me some very creep stuff. Apparently, she was once the victim of demonic possession when she was young. She had an exorcism and everything. I don't know how to feel about that.

Until I personally see a ghost or anything supernatural, I refuse to believe in any of it.

It's pretty obvious that she was flirting with you man. It's a sure thing, plus you don't even need to take her back to your place, considering your place is her place.

That's the sort of stuff of stuff I don't believe in. I clicked 'I don't know what to believe', because to a certain extent I don't believe in the paranormal, I don't believe in possession or spirits trying to communicate after the dead, but sometimes I see stuff out the corner of my eye and when I look there's nothing there that in my mind could have caused it. And if I was in a massive house out in the countryside and heard a bang in the middle of the night, I'd be shitting myself from all the books and movies. They're fiction, so I shouldn't believe it, but I know if I was in that situation, they'd have influenced my thoughts and I'd like to get out of there as quick as I could.

A friend of mine had clavoyants(I can't spell that word for shit) over when he was a little kid. Some of the stories he told me are insane, and interesting: Something as seeing a horribly wounded man standing still at the entrance door to something as ridicilous seeing a goat outside his bedroom door.

I remember the years 2006-2008 as some creepy time, I saw a lot of shit that I will never forget, this is the reason for my fear of the dark.

I told more in the old thread, but some pricks just quoted me and told me I was an idiot, so I rather not tell more this time.

It's true that people see ghosts, and possession does happen, but the explanation is psychosis, not magic.

It's funny how some people - despite people living in the age we do - still claim to see ghosts and shit and people go like "Whooaaaah. Really? Scary stuff!" and not "jesus ****ing christ what's wrong with you? see a docor or something before you ****ing stab someone in the shower you crossdressing psycho.".

In conclusion: if you believe in the paranormal go see a doctor before you stab someone in the shower, you crossdressing lunatics.

Well put.

Some guy in this thread said his mum told him she was possessed when she was a child. That's not an interesting anecdote, he should be worried that his family has a history of mental illness.

No, the ouija board was first produced as a TOY, intended to 'access the subconcious' or somesuch bullshit.
Some occultists then started claiming it could put you in touch with the dead, which was even more bullshit.

Death is not the end, our spirits will carry on.

Why don't you americans believe, the most br00tal cases with paranormal shit happens there.

I believe in outbreaks of attention seekers and jackasses. They seem to peak when conversations about ghosts and living death and ouja boards peak.

When you see a ghost/spirit/whatever, you'll change that opinion...

Yeah that's not "Really? What was that like?" it's more "JESUS CHRIST DOES THAT MEANS I AM INFECTED WITH ****ING LIQUID GENETIC CRAZY TOO??!??"

Yeah if by "change that opinion" you mean "rationally examine the situation" then yes, I'll probably "change that opinion".

its all a huge lie, personally seances and ouija boards disgust me.


and as stated further up, the ouija board was origionally released as a board game designed to help you 'subconciously answer questions.' it wasn't until a board was used in a film (although the name escapes me) to communicate with spirits that it developed this stigma.
