It's been my experience that only trolls ask this question.

I was being facetious, but only on Robvalue's genuine expression of empathy for a person suffering from schizophrenia, which turned out to have an amusing turn of phrase when the term "dog" was added to the end. (Try to picture him saying it in his Brit accent.) It was in no way a slight against anyone's mental health.

Now, that said... Dog's accusations against us for trying to point out that there are standards of evidence, standards of reasonable discourse, and standards of "we already explained to you how to look this up for yourself so why didn't you before you accused us of being hostile to you?", I'd say qualify him as a potential troll.

If he won't look up what that means but persists in pretending he is the last guy on earth who doesn't know what an internet troll is, I'd say that's definite proof that he's just trolling us.

I don't like manipulative people. Spent way, way, way too much time among them in my life, already.

Not good enough. You didn't answer the question. There is no past and no future in a timeless environment, which is what theology says is it.

You anthropomorphism is showing. Why should a god be like a person ?

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Free speech is fine and encouraged.

Dumbassery is not.
Well according to that definition of troll I am not one because my goal is not to upset people but to seek the truth.

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.
Life has no meaning to me without my dogs. They are all my best friends and they have always been there for me when others haven't. I know you don't believe in the afterlife but I do and I want to join them there and never be seperated from them again

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. Drinking Beverage


I only told them my name is Jennifer C I paid with debit and there is no mention of my grandmother in any of my social media
accounts.
I'm still waiting for my cold reading by the way

You've already had one. It cost you $250. Do some research on the subject; we aren't scam artists practiced in the art of doing cold readings. We aren't talking to you on the phone where we can hear inflections, pauses, and other clues to your reactions. You keep saying that you did not give any clues and we keep telling you that we don't believe that so this is going nowhere.

Maybe you've found the one real psychic in all of history and instead of using their ability to solve crimes or otherwise benefit humanity they dole out trivial information for a fee by phone... or perhaps you've been snookered and you are too gullible to realize it or too proud to admit it. I know which seems more likely to me.
