Why are people so interested in the Paranormal?
#11
So true,death & the other side.
1/we are all going to die at some point.
2/that'll probably be us 1 day trying to scare or relay messages (curiousty)
3/non-believers can't see a believers views/it's their way or the highway.
last but not least we can all agree on 1 thing.We can't all agree on everything.Hope this helps,keep the faith.Good thread.

As long as there is an unknown, people will want to know.
We are part of a reality much deeper than comprehension can comprehend.

Interesting point. Someone once said that proof for there being intelligent life elsewhere in the universe is the fact that they have not said hello with a grand entrance. Would you want to be known by people who attack what they don't understand?

I think this fear of the unknown makes people think of the paranormal as negative when it doesn't have to be. For instance, the Ouija board was not always seen as evil or dangerous. Norman Rockwell himself did a painting of two people using the board on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Then came The Exorcist, and omg. No longer a parlor game.

People sometimes want to be scared. People are already scared of "the devil" and "demons" or the corresponding entities in their religions; that helps their faith. People love to associate the paranormal with these entities, as if it reinforces their belief in God or whoever. Therefore they are drawn to the paranormal. But so are others without religion who have seen what they can't explain, or believe there has to be something more.

I always say that you can prove something exists,but how do you prove it doesn't?

Anyway,for me, I still wonder how we and all of us actually got here,and how everything else got here,and what is out there I know nothing about,and where do the people we love who pass away really go,and do they have choices,and do they feel good about where they are,and lots of other questions. We still have so much to learn.

Dabbling in the paranormal is an effective way to monetarily escape our mundane human existence on this tiny speck of rock orbiting around a middle-aged and very average star in a remote corner of an unremarkable galaxy among hudreds of billions of others.

It enables us to dream of other worlds, beings, and existences that are not confined to the rigid, dry, ordered laws of physics and mathematics. It allows us to dream of one of many possible versions of Utopian and paradisaical Afterlifes. And forget for a minute that, in reality, Nothing awaits us after our heart stops beating. Well, that is, except for an Eternity in the Great Nothingness.

On a side note...here is a definition of eternity that I always loved, and one that will make your head hurt if you spend a couple minute imagining just how Loooooonngg this would take..........

Imagine a butterfly who could fly away from Earth and go to where the Moon is: orbiting our planet around 240,000 miles away.

Imagine that instead of a moon being there, it was, rather, a huge, solid Iron Sphere the same size as the moon.

Each time the Butterfly reaches the moon, as he orbits it before returning on his journey back to Earth, he barely grazes one of his wings on the side of the Iron Sphere.

Well...ya know when we finally get to the point to where the butterfly's kajillion wing-grazings has worn the Iron Sphere to Nothing?

That is only the Beginning of Eternity.

I prefer to think of Eternity like the definition of Infinity. Sky blue pink, with a purple blue hue.

Cute. Something a Wiccan would say before perhaps engaging in some Fluffy Bunny Magic.

But, alas, it does nothing in the way of conveying the mind-numbing time span that is meant to be conveyed when the word "eternity" is used.

Because it's very interesting the theory of life after death. And the unknown is always more interesting.
