Are all psychics fake, or are some really able to discern information that isn't scientifically explainable?

Gosh haven't any of you ever seen the show psych?? That's what "psychics" do. They are just really good observers. Some are even just saying anything that would make since. :P

Maybe that get their information through what is called a bullshít conduit?

There's no arguing that some are legit. The question, to me, is where do they get their info? That's when you start wading into some dangerous waters.

50-50 for demos...? Really? And I thought they believed in science.

Ane@if you learned to understand these " feelings" you would be surprised what you could accomplish. Your inter voice is real, it's hard for a lot a folks to understand this concept.

Ppl aren't really capable of understanding quantum mechanics. I don't expect to meet any in the 90% majority to be smart...or average. Ppl are as dum as rocks usually. It's sad.

My mom also recently went to one and the lady said that I wanted to be a writer, which is correct. She also knew my dads mom had passed, and my moms dad. She talked about my brother and how even though he doesn't like school and gets bad grades, one day he'll impress everyone!

My parents went to a psychic on there honeymoon to Hawaii. Everything she said came true. My dad was a co-owner of a bakery, she predicted that would fall through, it did. She predicted my parents would have trouble having children, which they did. She was totally legit!She predicted other stuff too

I'm the kind of person who has to see it to believe it when it comes to this stuff

At first I thought it said physics, and was very confused.

I sometimes get a strange feeling the night before an unexpected event occurs. Can't tell you what it will be though.

08/30/12 5:19 pm

I can't believe that many people are arrogant enough to know everything does or does not exist in the universe. Even about things that no one can explain. That's arrogant. Lol

Early bird,
I read some accounts that a few did see 9/11 and mentioned it before. What can they do if no one believes they are real? Obviously you wouldnt have held a press conference if someone told you that scenario on 9/10. Right? You defeat your own rationale.

I want to believe but I just can't get past that " it's all bullshit" thing.

08/30/12 10:51 am

I want to believe I continue to believe but I have seen top psychics in Ny and have paid big money and nothing came to fruition.

I've had experiences my self. I would not say I'm a psychic.

08/30/12 7:11 am

I saw one once and she was definitely legit. She knew I loved animals immediately even though I hadn't said or wore anything that suggested it. I also did a tarot reading which was pretty accurate too.

08/30/12 6:29 am

Finally, I want to say that I would not pay money to a psychic. I agree that people who do this for a living are, generally speaking, fakes. However, my vote, "some legit," stands on the word "some."

08/30/12 6:27 am

However, I do believe that some degree of ESP does exist in some people. That's why I answered "some legit." I am an educated, intelligent woman and not at all embarrassed by my answer. Indeed, there things that we do not understand. Why do they frighten some of us so much?

08/30/12 6:21 am

I'm amazed that this question generates so much emotion. I thought it was more of a "fun" question. Indeed, as an earlier poster noted, the word "some" is very important. I agree that most psychics are fake, certainly the ones who do it for money. Continued next post ...

Thanks hapbgme. Some people just can't see past their own noses as they're staring down at you.

I say fake until I meet one in person. Same with people who can communicate with the dead. I'll believe it when I see it with my own eyes and not on tv.

At the possibility that ANYbody would choose Mitt, and yet the conversations don't generally turn into name calling contests (at least from what I've read).

Wow. Reading this thread I'm seeing a clear tendency that I don't understand. People who don't believe it are so passionate in their rudeness to people who think there might be some validity. Funny how the response is stronger even than for polls about politics. I'm sure a lot of us feel terrified

08/29/12 4:24 pm

Fake, the gender split is understandable. Women tend to be more empathetic and are socialized to be in tune with others' feelings. It stands to reason women would have more psychic experience because of being more open this way.

Lol @ income, gender, and age filters.

With that said and with the huge split among gender... that brings some even more interesting implications about gender equality and what we value from the genders to the table.

She is extremely detailed in the messages she gets, about things she has absolutely NO WAY of knowing... It's truly eerie.

VERY interesting results among income. When we feel like we're not in control or are going trough stressful times, we're more likely to see patterns in completely random occurrence, making it more likely to believe in things like psychics, prayer, etc.

I'm a very scientific-minded 36 year old, and kind of hate admitting this even, but grew up with a medium/psychic mom. I would NEVER have though it possible if I didnt see it with my own eyes time and time again.
