So, a few months ago I thought I had this extraordinary power.

I remember I was sitting on the couch, looking hard at the candle on the table, it was lit...

I focused on it to the point where the candle burnt out, I then cleared my thoughts and focused entirely on pushing it off the table.

It slid across the table like it was being pulled by a string.
weirdest day ever.

dont even know if it was a dream...

I completely believe in it.

I believe that we are a bit shaky on exactly how it works, and how to do it, but I believe in it. :)

Mmmhm... no. Sorry. I'm a rationalist. No evidence exists for it, so all we have to go on is anecdotal evidence - which is useless. Just as you said you managed to push a candle off the table using only your mind, I could just as easily say I was born to a virgin and can miraculously heal people.

Prove me wrong...

Hmm... interesting how this comes here, just after I had read something else on this site where a similar situation occurs.

Intriguing.

Dunno if I believe in it, I'd have to experience it myself.

You have birth records, most likely some sort of video, and, were we to take a chart of your genes, you would most likely be pretty damn close to having 50% of your mother's genetic make-up, and 50% of your father's.

In terms of psychic powers and such. Tests have been done, data has been taken, and there is evidence that some sort of power does exist. How strong is it? Unsure. How do you use it effectively? Unsure. But it's there in some form.

Honestly, don't you think that if someone had the ability to move stuff with their mind, they'd be making millions off it?

EDIT: Nevermind, that was a pretty bad example.

Out of the percentage that can do it..

Out of the percentage of those that can do it on demand..

Out of the percentage of those that can do it well..

Out of the percentage who are actually genuine out of all the fakes...

Who says that nobody is?

My friend and I were on the phone, and she lit a candle.
(We do this kind of stuff all the time, mind you)
I was able to put it out. She was all, "What did you just do?"
"Why?"
"The candle just went out."

So I tried it again, and again and again. Went out every time, by her word.

I can't do telekinesis though. Yet. >.>

Maybe, but I can't do anything else with fire other than putting a candle out. ^^; I can't bend the flame or anything. Though admittedly, I've never really tried. Hm.

I have no reserves when it comes to the paranormal. Theres two groups of people who believe in the paranormal. The gullible and the outright bullshitters.

No evidence has EVER been shown for the miraculous claims made by those who believe or claim to have the power. Anyone who's claimed to have special paranormal powers has failed to ever demonstrate it.

The second are those who rather fall for second hand accounts, or those who are looking to believe so they will discard failures, ignore details, and over emphasize coincidences, usually unaware how much they're doing it.

People wish to be special among the masses, so they attempt to make themselves special. It's fanciful and a feel good thought. But completely unsubstantiated.

Words are pretty. Bullshit not so much. Make with the evidence hun or you don't have a leg to stand on.

I'm not sure about telekenesis, as I have not witnessed it first hand. My college room mate said his mom could move a candle stick so who knows. I do know this however. My daughter in law is hyper electrostatic. We had the family over for a Thanksgiving dinner. The gravy was in a rubber plastic type pitcher that was glass lined. I passed her the gravy and when she touched it, it blew up spraying gravy over both of us. I have never seen anything like it, and hope to never see it, or feel the hot gravy again. When it exploded it made a popping noise. What do you suppose caused that, because frankly, I don't know. I might add that it was the glass inside the rubberish pitcher that exploded. I don't think it was a temperature change because we had used the pitcher many times. In this case, the pitcher had been sitting for a while on the table with the gravy inside. Many people had touched the pitcher, pouring gravy onto their turkey. It exploded when she took hold of it.

I'm going to sound like a nutter.
But really, it's one of those things where you're never gonna believe it until you do it for yourself.
And then you'd be the one trying to convince someone that what you can do, what you've felt and what you have done, is "outright bullshit".

So, I'm going to say, think what you want. Because in the end, it's not you I'm trying to impress. I'm trying to impress myself.

Well, it's one of those things that I'm not really sure about, really. I'm not going to be all "OMFG NO ONES TESTED IT RIGHT YET IT DOESNT EXIST RAWR," but I like to think I try not to be extremely gullible. It is an interesting thing though, and I'd like to try to find out more about it. >.>

On the contrary, its been tested several times. Many different claims of paranormal nature. Its failed miserably every time.
