A friend of mine told me that she doesn’t like to mess with the supernatural. Skeptic as I am, I told her that there is no such thing as a supernatural or paranormal world. Still, she said that I was wrong and that there is in fact paranormal stuff. This is the first time she argues with me regarding paranormal stuff, and I found out that she actually believes in all of that.
Well, I don’t. Ghosts, monsters, spirits, and things like that aren’t real. People have believed in them for thousands of years,just like gods and religions, they don’t have any proof of their existence. If these things were real then one would think that someone somewhere would have proof of it, right? I mean, for thousands of years people have believed in them, but no one has proof of anything. Ouija boards, or haunted houses aren’t proof either, mainly because… well, they don’t prove anything. The answers of Ouija boards give are actually controlled by the subconscious desire to have some sort of paranormal entity answer your questions, as if a spirit would be interested in who you are going to marry or to make its presence known to someone through a board, and if the “evidence” gathered in these haunted houses were real, then these people would’ve gotten international recognition and most likely a Nobel prize for the astonishing discovery. However, they haven’t and they will never find the evidence that they need to prove the existence of paranormal activity, you know why? Because there isn’t any.
To sum it all up here is a quote by Mr. Dawkins that explain this position better that I could ever explain it to you.
“Consider this. If a paranormalist could really give an unequivocal demonstration of telepathy (precognition, psychokinesis, reincarnation, whatever it is), he would be the discoverer of a totally new principle unknown to physical science. The discoverer of the new energy field that links mind to mind in telepathy, or of the new fundamental force that moves objects around a table top, deserves a Nobel prize and would probably get one. If you are in possession of this revolutionary secret of science, why not prove it and be hailed as the new Newton? Of course, we know the answer. You can’t do it. You are a fake”
there you have it. There is no such thing as paranormal stuff. there is no god, not ghosts, no haunted houses, no spirits answering your questions in the Ouija board, none of those things are real.
