You don't have to believe in the supernatural to love scary movies! Even if paranormal movies don't scare you, there are still many realistic movies [like those about serial killers] that will. If you love horror... this is your place!

For all of you who love astrophysicist Dr. Tyson. I, personally, think that Neil's talks are like stand-up comedy. Only better. He is the Carl Sagan of our generation. A true pioneer of science.See More

"This could easily be done by an extraterrestrial technology that has evolved eons ahead of our own. Who was it that said that a miracle by the bible's standards would be indistinguishable from an extraterrestrial technology?"

Shawn Close replied to Mercedes's discussion 'Why do atheists ask for so much proof to believe in God?'
"For being the supposed source and creator of all things, including the concept of love, God doesn't live up to HUMAN standards. There isn't a parent on Earth that would condemn their child to ETERNAL suffering in Hell for disobeying them.…"

"DMT is orders of magnitude different in its effect from opium. I wouldn't even compare the two. The only way I could imagine drilling a hole working out in that way is that if DMT is released, after all it is part of the NDE."
