Is believing in the Long Island Medium/Psychic really any different than religion?

    I find it rather repulsive the way Howard,Gary and Jon Hein mock Sal for being moved or believing in the LIM. I don't personally believe in psychics however I don't have a problem with anyone who goes to one for comfort after a loved one or pet dies. To me it really isn't any different than a priest, pastor or head of any religion who tells someone that if they pray to a magical man in the sky or deity that all their prayers will be answered.

    Yes, Religion is based on faith and has some historical basis in reality.

    The Long Island Medium is the worst kind of charlatan.
    She preys on the weak-minded who are at their most vulnerable and want to believe in what they know instinctively to be horseshit.
    She really is an evil person.

    all mediums and psychics are scam artist and no one can talk to the dead. some of the stuff they is the same as magicians/mentalist but they will say it's done by trickery but will not discuss how it's done.

    as far as talking to the dead read any book on harry Houdini since one of the things he did on his stage show was to exposed them and showed are they are fakes.

    Psychics/religion...whatever, Howard shouldn't be mocking anyone. Don't forget, his mom checked his temp in his asshole until he was 14. That is wrong even in Arkansas.

    Yes Howard, people of low intelligence are suckers for psychics. Here's proof:

    •More Vacation Discussions. 5/5/03. 8:40am
    Howard said Beth had a psychic reading done and the psychic ruined the day for him because she told Beth that Howard wasn't going to stay with her. Gary said he did that to a girl he was dating one time and the psychic told this chick that she belonged with the guy she was with before Gary. Howard and Gary thought that was ridiculous. Howard talked about how fake all of that crap is and how there should be a law against it. They never predict tornados or things like that, it's always some other nonsense.

    •Beth Talks To A Dog Psychic. 12/08/09. 10:00am
    Howard said Beth was talking to a dog whisperer last night. He said that he got kicked out of the room because she knows how he feels about that. He said that he was in the room for 3 seconds before she waved her hand at him to get out of the room. Howard said the only one talking in the room was Beth when he walked out. Howard said that he heard her talking to this person and she didn't shut up. She said she had to ask questions. Howard said that's how these psychics put it all together and trick you into thinking they know what they're talking about.

    It would be epic if someone brought this up during a phone call to the show tomorrow.

    If it had historical basis in reality it wouldn't be based on faith.

    I refuse to believe that my dead relatives would ever talk to a bleach blonde Long Island cunt like her.

    How does the supernatural aspect of any religion have a historical basis in reality? All supernatural beliefs be they in yahweh, zeus, marduk or that of a psychic are non testable and entirely faith based. And there are plenty of charlatans in them all. I use to work at a job running the computer servers for a phone advice company that included psychics. I can say for certain that many of the psychics legitimately believed in what they said.

    The issue is even if the psychic or priest legitimately believes in what they say, is it really much better than those who dont, if the advice they are giving is based on a falsehood? People make important life decisions on their advice and even if false information is given with the best if intentions it still can be harmful.

    Everybody is looking for something to believe in. Some people are just more gullible than others.
