Real Psychics vs. Fake Psychics
    #4447096 - 07/24/05 04:48 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

A real psychic is one who can fool your average joe/jane into believing that he/she is gifted with paranormal abilities.

A fake psychic is a wannabe "real" psychic whose act is so pathetic that even gullible folks are not fooled - and that takes real ineptness.

A stage magician was invited to a college psychology class. Both the professor and the magician told the class that what he was about to perform were merely tricks. He then did several mind-reading parlor tricks. Afterwards the professor polled the class. Almost 80% believed they had witnessed genuine ESP.  :eek:

The proof is in the pudding.

Somewhere in this process, you will come face-to-face with the sudden and shocking realization that you are completely crazy. Your mind is a shrieking, gibbering madhouse on wheels." - ven. henepola gunaratana

Poor defination of Real Psychic.

A real psychic would be able to demonstrate actual psychic abilities.

By your defination you show a bias in favor of the belief that there could be no real psychic abilities. Shame shame, :grin:
