Have you ever known somebody who was... for the lack a better term, "spooky"?

You know, somebody who just gives off bad vibes, who lives in "the darkness" and truly isn't just pretending to be? I don't mean somebody who is a just a bit mental or likes to dress goth or dabble in "witchcraft" from a book they found at Barnes & Noble... they may look completely normal but you just intuitively know they are truly "off" and not a "normal" person.

It's hard to explain, but if you've ever encountered someone like that, you'd know what I mean.


How do you deal with a person like that? What makes them that way? Do you have any stories and can you describe your impressions?

I wouldn't call those I've known 'outwardly spooky', but yes, the eyes give them away.

But sometimes "vibes" are interpreted differently by different people. Just like people see something as beautiful and something else as ugly and other people would see these same things in a different way, it's possible that a person comes across to you as creepy, but wouldn't to other people. Just my two cents.

But no, I don't remember running into a creepy person.

I imagine anyone who ran into Richard Ramirez would get that feeling, big time.

you are so correct---i have met only two people like that--one lives very close nearby my residence and the other is a high ranking priest---could not even stand being around him---only one in all my years being active in my faith

I've noticed that it tends to be the people with the spookiest vibes that go most out of their way to look and appear normal, physically. A lot of people that do really awful things wear normal attire for their professions and so on. Think Sandusky, for example. Did he go around wearing all black with heavy eyeliner? Nope. But these twin psychics talked about how they could feel his dark vibe so strongly when they attended Penn State, it would make them sick to their stomachs. Skip to 25 min.

I know that feeling very well. I had the same experience with another well known religious figure several years ago. Shaking his hand made me want to chuck my guts. I had to leave the room.

Have you checked to see if the priest was involved in any of the sex scandals within the church?

Aleister Crowley was one of the most spooky and weird people

One of the funnier and more colorful "explanations" I've heard for the kind of people I'm talking about is that they are alien hybrids planted among humanity for some unknown reason. Anyone here wanna own up to being a half-alien?

he would never get corrected even if caught--too many vatican contacts----luckily for kids he prefers women in their 20's and 30's
