Discussion by: demonHi everyone,
i’m Indonesian (from chinese origin) and i think i’m an atheist, i don’t believe in god or deities but i can’t reject the notion that there’s part of me that still can’t deny the existence of supernatural phenomenons (ghost, apparition, supernatural power, haunted places, and so on), and living in this country doesn’t help either. This is a country where corruption is rampant but still pride itself as one of the biggest islamic (and therefore: morally superior) countries…….the irony, the local cops in my city still sometimes use psychic to help them catch criminal, and few years ago one of the country’s minister dreamt about a buried treasure and proposed to make a search team.
Anywho, can someone give me scientific explanation to debunk these supernatural/paranormal thingy for me? you know, being an atheist who still has doubt makes me feel like a hypocrite. Of course so far i haven’t experienced any of the supernatural phenomenon myself, but still, stating disbelief without knowing the scientific reason is like saying “pic or it didn’t happen” ^_^
i’ve heard some stories about a psychic can give you a temporary spell to make you be able to see ghost, my logical mind says “perhaps the fraud fools the poor victim with hallucinogen“, but on the other hand i think “ow, you don’t believe it huh? just wait til you see one and shit your pants off“.
I’ve read some stories about 2001 sampit conflict and how dayak people used their psychic power when head hunting the madurese people, flying daggers, instant death spell, pretty cool if you hear that in videogames, not so much in real life.
And this one, it’s indonesian news about a cave in biak (which used to be used as a fortress by Japanese
soldiers in WW2) and how sometimes tourists got possessed by the spirits of dead japanese soldier. Sounded like a plot for cheesy horror movie, but still…..it’s news.
any opinion appreciated.
