Hi folks! I'm about to meet a psychic for the first time. What do you think about medium work?

Well, I can't even say it was entertaining. She was awful.

It's like playing the lottery - you do it for entertainment purposes only. A gypsy once approached my wife and told her we'd have lots of babies. Totally barked up the wrong tree. We have a son. . . as in one.

It does make money for the medium..plenty of gullible folk around. If it worked, the medium would win lotteries and money at horse races and not have to do that kind of work.

By the way, this website has a bit of a learning curve.

For members who are open to dating, certain thumbnails and profiles have a heart symbol on them with a percentage. This identifies which members are open to dating, and the percent shows approximately how compatible others are with them.

You can improve your website score in general by answering all the profile questions and writing a bio, which also earns website points, and helps other members get to know you.

Commenting on posts and writing your own posts earns more points. At level two you can private message people, and at level eight you get an agnostic T-shirt.

If you want to date, the website uses profile algorithms to find member matches, so the more details one includes, the better the match.

Many people prefer to see a written profile talking about interests, hobbies, and backgrounds that can be quickly perused to find others who are compatible with them.

In case you didn't know yet, to find members near you, click on the "Browse" button at the top of the page, then on "Members," and enter your preferred search parameters.
Click on the "Discuss" button, then "Nearby" to find members near you also.
Or click on the "About" button at the top left of the page to find links to FAQ or the website tutorial.
Points are now being given to level 3+ members who chat. You can see chat rooms on the group main page or at [agnostic.com].

I had a reading once. (It was a free first reading.) But I could tell she was telling me what she thought I wanted to hear.

Um save your money it's a waste of time it's just another form of outdated mysticism anyone with a scientific mind knows that that is a ridiculous thing

I equate this with faith healers, ghosts, demons and the freaking Easter bunny. It’s all nonsensical bs. Playing on people’s emotions for a buck.

Houdini spent a lot of time debunking mediums. NO such thing, but many, for some reason,. want to believe it is true .

Strongly agree with LenHazel153 below.

I was a spiritualist medium for several years, before I came to my senses, I can tell you now it is totally fake, but the "psychic" will believe it is true, if you are lucky, some are total charlatans but most are sincerely deluded.
The way we were trained was designed to convince you the medium, that tricks, cold reading, reading body languages are all signs from "spirit" that you are genuinely passing on messages from the other side.
You can quickly get so good at it, that you become brainwashing in to believing it yourself, especially when the poor souls so desperate to believe that you can contact the dead, keep encouraging you and finding reasons to believe you are passing on a message from dear old Uncle Fred and Auntie Agnes.
Looking back with the clarity of hindsight I can see this now and that it was just as daft as believing in the priesthood powers I was ordained to when a Mormon.

I think seeing another person for help can be good but have heard some unsolveable information given simply on vibes which i find very personal. Perhaps a good psychic I would simply call a good psychic. Make sure the information is helpful and i think it is usually considerred somewhat safely for entertainment purpose only.

Save your money! And I mean, Save your money! The real ones will not take any money, for fear of losing their powers...the rest are in it to take every dime they can get!

They're the lowest form of scum. They are skilled performers who choose to use their talents to take advantage of desperate and grieving people. They are parasites.

I prefer my psychics well done.

I foresee that they are going to tell you that your life is in shambles but if you pay them more they will help you out with your troubles coming your way in the near future! Lol!!!

I would consider going to one, but to fuck with them. Yeah I’d cost me probably 20-30$, but I think it’d be possible to have a good time ridiculing one of them on a Friday night. Better than wasting the same cash on some lame Hollywood movie. Unless it was like Inglorious Basterds or They Live or something

It doesn't matter what I think, or how much validation you do or don't get from responses to this question. All that matters is if the person claiming to have psychic powers actually does, and whether they are framed in such a way as to be falsifiable. For every psychic claim I've ever seen, the answers to those two questions are "no" and "no". The person cannot demonstrate any real foreknowledge and demands a certain amount of "faith" or credulousness or else you'll ruin everything. The most common technique deployed by claimed psychics is "cold reading", which is something you ought to read up on.

I know a few people to claim to be psychics. I think they are all fakes.
