Swami, prove your paranormal powers!!!
    #1608813 - 06/04/03 07:36 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Swami,
You seem to know a great deal about how people can be tricked into believing in paranormal abilities. Using your knowledge, could you do some tricks here in the forums, that would have us all gasping at your amazing "supernatural powers"? Maybe something like fortune telling or mind-reading. Show us how easily we can be fooled. :blush:

Do you put faith in anything besides yourself?

Swami, u mentioned that belief/faith "nearly destroyed your life" in one of your posts (hope I'm summerizing correctly). care to elaborate ?
(The moderator told me that specific personal posts arn't allowed, but
since I didn't start this thread, maybe it's ok ?)

hmmm... he hasn't posted for a while...Swami has left the building ! :grin:

we have 2 clues, 1) a cave (Swami posted a photo of himself in a cave) and
2) he said something about a meditation retreat in a forest...

A Swami FAQ would be useful, but could possibly be seen as pretentious.
If people didn't jump to conclusions about him and actually read and COMPREHENDED most of his posts, a FAQ would be redundant and less useful.

It is the fool that thinks exclaiming "You must think for yourselves!" to the masses will get anyone to actually think for themselves.

If more people were able to understand what constitutes "evidence" and "proof", then more people would appreciate Swami.

Swami is not trying to destroy your beliefs. He's trying to make you question everything. Not to take things seriously unless there is a good reason to. He's teaching you not to be so gullible, if you'll listen.

I agree.

Swami has an ego like anybody else, but he is only trying to help.

Up 52% in the last four months. Good thing no one here wanted to participate in the Swami Mutual Fund. One clown said that it is impossible to make money daytrading. Whatever...

No, it proves what I am always saying here. That people are generally ruled by superstition and emotionalism rather than logic.

Spock out.
