Has anyone seen this show? He can't be for real...can he? If that show is fixed,he's got to be the best con-artist in history.

There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in most folks' philosophies. [u]Can[/u] we contact the dead? Yes, read the account of King Saul and the Witch of En-dor in Chapter 28, I Samuel. [u]Should[/u] we contact the dead? No re-read that same account and see that King Saul had his kingdom torn away from him. It something to consider! Eric The(OldTestament-sortOf)Hun[>]:)]

Damn Eric! That was dead-on. It just creeps me out to think that this guy might be actually talking to the dead.

I saw it yesterday, that was comedy! He talks super-fast, just like most con-men. Did you notice he has people he's talking to write things down, and then they interview them later? This is because as he's giving them their reading, the BS he's spouting out makes NO sense to the people, so they're supposed to review it later, and something will finally click and make sense to them. What a crock!

Didn't Saul resort to the witch in the first place because God was already unhappy with him and not returning his calls?

Many people have looked into this, including the Great Randi--www.randi.org---and have come away with the opinion that if you could see the entire show, you would be less than impressed. John's guesses are only right abot twenty percent of the time and most of his errors are edited out.

I think he's full of shit and editing makes him look good. Yes he's a con man. A good con man doesn't come off as one, that's why they are believable. The reverse of course is true for bad con men.
