Maybe my wife has been talking to her?

The other day, she yelled at me from the other room, "Hey. Do you ever feel a sharp pain in your neck, like someone is sticking a pin in a voodoo doll that looks like you?"

I said, No... can't say that I have.

Long pause... then she says, "Okay. How about NOW?"

:pms2:

Here, but occasionally There.
There are a great many things in this universe that we do not understand.

Many things for which there is no realistic explanation.

There is no real difference between superstition and religion. Neither can be proven, disproven, or explained.

IOW, the problem with a religionist, any religionist, is that; once having accepted something on faith, they no longer listen to reason.

Let her do as she pleases. She isn't hurting anyone.

Not necessarily true. There is much that science can't prove either.

On the other hand, scientists and atheists have agreed that the universe came from a "big bang," meaning everything created from nothing.

And that is probably one of the greatest miracles of all time.

So, why not believe in a God that could do that?

Recharging crystals is no more a ritual than recharging your cell phone.
Crystals may make her feel better and feel safe inside the home.

Not hurting anyone let it be.

You're absolutely right. When I charge my phone, the angry pixies in that weird thing plugged into the wall magically restores my battery. It's a miracle!

Now, if you were paying attention, I was the first to say that as long as she wasn't harming anyone then she can do whatever she is happy with. I was also the person to say don't post the poor girls pic. So don't try to throw me out as the bad guy.

The issue seems to be that you are all butthurt that I used the term worship and ritual based on her belief in the supernatural, but whatever. And as far your examples as to what is a religious ritual and what is not, I don't ascribe supernatural phenomenon to tangible things like electricity, tools, or street crime. I don't carry a gun on hoping that it is going to somehow provide an aura of mystical protection through some unknown metaphysical entity. My phone doesn't charge through faith and belief in some unknown power.

So, you wanna try again?

Your comments remind me of a wise old saying: "lack of evidence does not prove lack of existence. And lack of existence does not prove lack of evidence"

Oddly enough my SIL is into the same stuff, lol. Was telling her about her "moon water" one time. Basically sets a container of water out under a full moon and it is supposed to have certain properties.

And you need a woman that not young enough to be your daughter… :blush:
Why? 😁
My DIL’s dad married a 19 year old when he was 55 after his first wife was killed in a RR crossing accident.
He sired 2 kids. 😉
Remained married until he passed from cancer last year at 68.

Lol. I went to high school with some wiccan chicks who were very hot. But their wicked weirdness outweighed all of that attractiveness.

Your friend probably realized how different these types of people truly are and it scared him.
She turned him into a newt.

There are literally countless studies within the realms of parapsychology and quantum physics that make it quite clear that human thought, intention, and overall human consciousness has some sort of relationship with our physical material world. That is not what's in question, what's in question is the nature of that relationship and how strong this effect is. There is still so much to discover.
