Psychics: Real or fake?

Our readers share their conflicting opinions on whether clairvoyants are con artists or genuine psychics.

The disbelievers:

Ullricke: ...it's a rip off

Yolande: Fake. Absolutely.

The Joker:


Mnr Willemse: My toilet flushes by itself and this year someone or something ate my easter eggs, can you tell me if theres a ghost in my house?

Science explains everything:

Janti: I am sorry, but I do not believe in the supernatural. We have the science to detect water in another galaxy so advance is our instruments and they have yet to detect the presence of a ghost... If there was such thing I believe they finest calibrated instruments would give us prove beyond a doubt...

Robert: If your claims are genuine then head over to James Randi's website and take the challenge to claim your prize of 1 Million US Dollars (sic).

There simply is not enough evidence to take this stuff seriously. And whenever a rational test is devised and proposed to either prove or disprove these supernatural claims, excuses are made as to why such tests won't work (sic).

Those who believe:

Gail: I think as with anything metaphysical there are some who have a gift and never use it and others who have a slight gift and cultivate it and perhaps are right some of the time. Of course there are charlatans in every sphere of life.

Shelli: it’s 90% bogus, 10% genuine. But, the 90% gives the minority a bad reputation. For example I know one who is brilliant and she refers to herself as an intuitive consultant or coach, never uses the word psychic due to its negative connotations. And, the genuine ones are the people who help you to develop your OWN intuition.

Those who are scared of the unknown:

Melanie: I believe in them but I'd never go to one!

Sharon: Had many "incidents" in our family and have had some myself. I am convinced that there is another side and we will be with our loved ones there. Just because it can't be measured, seen etc does not mean that it does not exist. I know that there are many charlatans out there but I do believe that there are some people who are born with the gift.

The actual psychic:


Susan: I am a clairvoyant medium and believe me when I say I know things I know...
