You may want to check your comprehension skills - I made NO THREATS....I do not have the ability too close a discussion. It was not a threat, it was a request....quite a bit different.

My opinion - palm reading is as accurate as phrenology.

They are so against what they do not understand and what threatens their narrow belief system.

So sad.

OwlKaMyst did not threaten anyone.

As the saying goes, 'don't knock it until you try it.'

I understand the mechanics of palmistry. The lines and shapes found within the palms have designated (important word there) meanings. It is what it is, and more often than not, it conveys the truth. If there is a discrepancy, it is likely found in the reader who is not fully learned, or learned from a invalid source. And it is just human nature to make mistakes.

For the same reason someone might seek a second opinion on medical diagnosis. All depends on expectations; my suspicion, revelations by the best palm reader, dismissed by a skeptic. A refusal to believe.

And the basis of this comment is?
Is it religious in nature? Palmistry is heavily used in the Hindu religion.

Techniques used to "fool" a polygraph work great on "Palm Readers."
