XD I love it. They say that the Ouija board will bring forth an evil creature that may end up bringing you to very depths of hell (paraphrasing...) and you take that as the best reason to try it.
I'm not ridiculing you, by the way. I honestly love that.
However, Ouija boards are nothing more than a toy, a tool used to focus your own energies and hidden abilities; like a witches Athame or a psychic's crystal ball. If things start happening after you used the Ouija board, they were going to happen regardless of your use of the board.

There's a bull running towards your front door -- it's gonna come busting into your house whether you open the door for it or not.

spirits cant communicate with us the way we know being that our brains and or non-sensitive people might understand. The board gives them a chance to talk to you. Problem is who or what are you talking to and in doing so does that open communication to things who have alot to say. you could do the same thing if you made it yourself, were serious and wanted to talk to the dead.

It was a movie that started the whole fear of oujia boards, the (original) Excorsist.
It's JUST a movie! Prior to that movie, Oujia boards were not seen in a bad light.
At the turn of the century just about everyone had sat at a table and used one. They were a very popular parlor game and no one feared them and bad things did not happen to those who did use them.

Played them quite a bit with friends as a teenager. Yeah..out of dozens of times, nothing strange ever happened. It's a game, nothing more. Now Monopoly, that's a dangerous game!

My thoughts exactly.

I have had some horrific and unpleasant experiences with it. I know others who have as well.
With so many people, from such diverse backgrounds and belief systems - from agnostics, to people who are deeply interested in the paranormal to religious folks from many different persuasions - why bother?

If you have a burning desire to speak to someone who has passed on, find a reputable medium.
I do not think the board itself is evil. When you use it to contact entities that are not of this earth, nasty things can and do happen.

I like to give this analogy - when you use the ouija board you are opening a door to your body and mind.

Now, think of this - You live in a large city, in an apartment building - would you leave the door to your apartment open intentionally? I doubt that.

But, say that by accident you somehow left the door open and ran off to work.

What might happen?

A good neighbor who noticed your door was left ajar would close it.

A person with less character, might be curious go inside and have a look around.

Another might go inside, look around and steal something - or vandalize your home.

And yet another might do all both and text his friends that he is in this great apartment with all of this cool stuff - come on over - we can have some "fun" and rip off this idiot who left his door open. Another might wait for you to return home and hide with the intention of doing harm.

When you open your self up using a tool such as an ouija board, the entities who come in to your "apartment" are not good. They are taking advantage of the vessel that you have opened for them.
They are like the last three groups of people in the open apartment scenario.

Only they are not human and most likely they have never lived. They want a place to live though, inside of a human body.

Is it worth it? Even if there is only a chance that all of these people are right - why take a chance?

as others have said repeatedly--using it entails opening oneself to other energies and some one that is a good conduit can bring about other negative energies--so play and poo-poo it but someday you can be sorry you or the persons using it ever did "play" with it

I wonder, reading this thread, why is a Ouija board any more of a "door" than, say, a seance of the type that people used to do back in the times when Ouijas became popular also. Or any other type of communication with the spirit world?

I had one when I was a kid. My best girlfriend and I used to use it. It spoke French fluently to us. I surely knew no French, and my girlfriend claimed to only know bits and pieces. But that planchette flew on that board. Never any life altering things said, but it was pretty clear and lucid. (Friend's mother was Canadian French--English was a second language for her--she would translate.)

I don't think it brought anything evil to me or her. But I am curious as to why it's considered more dangerous than any other spiritual dabbling.

Because in the movies it is portrayed that way and to quote another movie, "When legends become fact, print the legend."
