It's funny how everyone is calling me a troll and yet no one is telling me what it means. I guess free speech is not respected here.

First, you need to find someone who is actually saying that "something came from nothing" besides a theist, and apparently yourself.

Free speech is fine and encouraged.

Dumbassery is not.

Eternal is something that existed forever in the past and will exist forever in the future.

They meant that they could fool more people by making a pretense that what they are doing is based on science instead of just admitting that they are either deluded or conmen.

Something from nothing may be the case; you've been pointed to Lawrence Krauss multiple times and he is in a position to have a qualified opinion on the subject. For most of us the answer is simply "we don't know". You are convinced you are right but have no evidence for that conclusion -- your "common sense" simply doesn't apply to areas where you have no experience or expertise and it is pretty arrogant to insist that you have to be right until proven wrong when you literally do not know what you are talking about (note that I'm not saying I am qualified to draw conclusions about it either -- that's why I don't).

Quote:and that psychics can know so much about you without you saying a word

You've been directed to info on cold reading multiple times. Read up on it and find some videos where people show how it is done. Our ability for self-deception is incredible and these "psychics" tap into that expertly. The odds are heavily tilted towards you being duped given the mountains of evidence of fraud and deception and zero confirmed evidence of psychic powers.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

I feel bad now, because I thought RS was being facetious. As someone who suffers from a debilitating neurological condition myself, I certainly wouldn't trade places with you, and I sincerely hope you are receiving help. Life DOES go on, and has the ability to be what you make it, but I would never wish ill for you no matter how much I may disagree with you in an exchange of ideas.

I have a 16+ year-old terrier mutt that I love like life itself. I hope you find more to sustain you through the difficulty that is life besides just them though.

So not being intelligent according to your standards is not allowed?

That is clearly an equivocation -- a logical fallacy. If you did that deliberately, your response is itself evidence of a troll's dumbassery.

You could even roll a different-sized die taken at random for each trial (D4, D6, D8, D12 and D20 - more exotic shapes are available.)
If it's so likely, then why don't you do a cold reading for me? Tell me my grandmother and grandfather's name from my father's side and tell me how many children they have. If it's so easy...
You were likely the victim of warm or hot reading as well as cold reading, did you pay by debit/credit card by any chance ? Did you give your full name and location, are you on social media ? There are no such things as spirits and no such thing a real psychics, I suggest you visit the bad psychics website where you will find articles and explanations on how psychics con people, educate yourself.
