Sadly over on the McStay family IS boards yesterday, a bunch of people were waiting up because some psychic or “forensic astrologist” had predicted that something would happen on Sunday.
As Penn & Teller said so well, psychic phenomena is BULL SHIT! Astrology is BULL SHIT as well.
No one has ever proven themselves to be psychic. It’s simply not real.
Oh, and there aren’t any ghosts either. Just so you know.
I really hope the families aren’t stupid enough to start listening to psychic BS.
I love the classic psychic answer to the lottery question. You know the one, “if you’re psychic why don’t you win the lottery?”. They always answer by claiming that their powers don’t work for personal gain. YET, they have no problem charging for readings. Hmmmmmmmm…….
Back to the message boards for a bit. These people are mostly vile individuals. If the family isn’t in the news for a day or so, they think it’s because they know where they are, or they’re being negligent. When they are in the news, someone else is claiming that they’re publicity hungry, that it’s all a stunt like balloon boy, and that they’re looking to profit. Some of these people need to give their heads a giant shake. These families are trying to keep their own lives together, look after their own incomes, their own kids who have practices and recitals and what not. There’s not a whole lot more that they can do, unless they give up their own incomes, which just isn’t practical.
And as far as the McStay family goes, so many board posters go on and on about their being “no searches”. Well seriously, where do they start?
There is one thing that everyone seems to be in agreement on though. One precious thing. That the poster ‘redcherries’ is absolutely insane. That is one poster that everyone should ignore. LOL!
