The reason why I ask is I absolutely do not believe that such a thing as a Psychic exists. I believe that we are creatures of habit. We can be studied and reasonable conclusions can be reached by those studies. For example I can tell you that there will be more war in the future but this statement just means I know enough to know that man loves war it doesn't mean I psychically forecast the next war. When Oklahoma plays Idaho State this year in football knowing what I know about both teams leads me to forecast that Oklahoma will win the game by a huge margin. If it happens as it should that Oklahoma beats Idaho State badly I won't be psychic I'll just have known that Oklahoma is a much better football team than Idaho State.
And that example is the prime reason I think Psychic phenomenon is a joke. Can you imagine the money to be made if Sylvia Brown was legit? I mean other than bilking the truly stupid. I would be In Vegas 24/7 using my psychic powers to their full advantage. I'd know what other cards the dealer or the other players around the table would have so I could win a fortune. I would know what number was coming up on the wheel at roulette. I would be betting on winners in every sport imaginable. Hey It's not like the gift comes and goes right? You have it or you don't. And until you prove to me otherwise I say you don't.
