Fearmongering or not, it is a fact of life that there are some very weird and strange phenomena affecting people and always have been.

So what do you call these complete change of personalities then? Do you believe it is purely a psychological condition?

Just because it does not fit into your view of life does not make it either true or untrue and there maybe many different conditions which may be classified as different things by different people - depending on your viewpoint and beliefs. Religious people tend to call it demon possessions and more doctory kind of people probably have names for it too. Untill we can see the energy in and around each of us I dont think we will truly understand what is the phenomena. When we can understand the problem we might be able to pin it down and classify it.

Psychological and/or chemical imbalances are the most likely reasons.

And I am well aware of "weird and strange phenomena."

I also believe some people prey on those who are afflicted and in some instances, cause the affliction by sowing seeds of fear and doubt in fragile minds.

And I believe some of those people habituate forums such as this, as well as Religion, Spirituality, Psychology etc. looking for prey - although they, of course, would describe it differently.

I couldn't agree more. Some people DO.

If it is a fact you can prove it. Prove your fact.

This kind of fact does not have to be proved as everyone knows there are strange phenomena around us. Why would you need that to be proved unless you are just nit-picking on my posts?

If I get under your skin then you have to do whatever you do in real life - which is to ignore people you do nat have anything in common with. It does nothing for you to keep taunting me like this and only serves to make you look silly.

First, calling me immature is against the forum rules. You should know this as you manipulate them when it is to your benefit.

Second I have been responding to this thread for a while. Just because you do not like the questions and do not have the answers does not mean they are not valid questions. If you state something is a FACT you should be able to provide some proof of it. You demand proof from others and then judge them by saying their silence is an admittance of guilt so I am not sure what I am doing that you think is wrong?

A "fact of life" is a phrase in English and is not generally a fact in the normal way you are using the word. You know that. It is a generally accepted truth and does not have to be proved to you or anyone else.Now let us move on.
