Hello hello. Alakazam here.

I don't believe in things like the afterlife, energy healing, and the rest. However, I find discussions on the subject fascinating, and I'm open to new evidence.

I'd also like to assure all the members of this site that I am not here to bash your beliefs. I may - scratch that, I will - ask questions, but I am not here to hurt people, just to talk.

I look forward to speaking with all of you.

PS: I've been told on several forums that I come across as cold or nasty. I don't mean to, but I'm generally very blunt, and I rarely use smilies. Please excuse me - I find smilies annoying, so I don't use them often, and I'm not the most tactful person. I'll do my best to keep from offending anyone, though.

See, look: here's a smiley, to show goodwill!  smiley

Thanks, both of you.

And don't worry about it, Xanth. I've got no problem with smilies in others' posts. I just don't like using them in mine.

That's cool.

Just a quick word... this is a forum where people come to learn how to do Astral Projection and associated skills in a non hostile and accepting environment.
We're not here to prove anything to anyone who isn't already willing to learn and be open... and I doubt we could provide you with any evidence to whet your appetite, nor would any of us even try really.

I'll be blunt with you as well... you won't get much leash here. 
So please, be courteous and tolerant (I know you said you will, you will be held to that).

Thanks.  Smiley

That's fine. For the most part, I'm just here to read.

A large part of why I participate in forums like this is because - like my title says - I'm a tabletop gamer. I write and build adventures for various tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons, Deadlands: Reloaded, and World of Darkness. Since a large part of the flavor of those games comes from the occult, I do my best to learn about all the beliefs out there. Think of it like field research. The questions I've asked of you and other members aren't meant to "debunk" anything. I'm honestly interested in knowing the answers.

I do participate in sites where I do my fair share of debunking, but that's not what I'm here for.

EDIT: With the exception of the thread where I responded to a video posted by Lily. There, I am doing what might be considered debunking, because the OP asked about what happens when we die, and I think that the video she posted is nonsense. Even there, though, I'm trying to keep it as inoffensive as possible.

No problem. You won't get any trouble from me. I'm a forum administrator and moderator on several sites, including one paranormal forum (now defunct due to server issues). I know how crazy it is trying to keep track of all the stuff that gets reported, so whenever I'm on someone else's forum, I make a conscious effort to give the site staff as little trouble as possible.

Xanth, if, at any time, you decide that my presence is a negative influence on the forum - if I'm coming on too strong, or scaring away members, or anything like that - let me know, and I'll leave quietly and without issue. I realize that not all forums are ones where a presence like mine is wanted, and I'd prefer not to stay where I'm not wanted.
