How do you explain this?
    #2006968 - 10/14/03 01:04 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I knew this white guy who was really really interested in African, Trinidadian and other foreign cultures and religions. He's a collage guy who I consider pretty trustworthy.

He told me that he and another friend went to (some other country, I forget which one) and took part in a ceremony where spirits are contacted. He said that his other white friend who went along with him became possessed by a spirit and began talking in a language that he does not speak. It scared the shit out of my friend obviously.

How can this be explained?

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I think we are all capable of speaking every language because of past lifes and genetic memory going back thousands and thousands of years. I beleive most ceremonys are simply just a way to speak to your subconcious just like magic or prayer so its like a shamatic tool.

Well, you can't really know exactly what happened. Was the guy actually speaking another language, or was it just gibberish? Could it have been hypnotism or something?

There's no way you could know exactly what happened, but this doesn't mean it makes any sense to assume the explanation they gave was correct. There is likely a much more rational explanation, it just hasn't been figured out yet.

Speaking in tongues transcends religious affiliations.

It depends on what theory you subscribe to and Im in no mood for a long drawn out thread about my Christian fundamentalism today.

But I find the story of the Tower of Babel very interesting when ruminating on your question.

Exactly! I believe that as well.

And yes, he was speaking the language of whatever country that my friend and his friend were visiting! He was supposidy possessed by a spirit and started getting pissed. It's been a while, so I forget most of what he said. I want to say I was told that his voice made a drastic change as well, but I can't say for sure.
