Question by Mr. Nobody: Why do people believe in mystical things?
And by mystical things I mean astrology, palm reading, horoscopes, religion, parapsychology etc.
If you stop and look around the world is a very rational place, sure there might be many mind boggling things going on, but at the end of the day everything has an input and and an output, a cause and effect. So what makes people stop thinking and rely on things without any evidence?
Answer by Mrs Logic
Well, it is easiere to prove something exists that for it not to exist. Not so very long ago people would have laughed at the idea of sound or pictures travelling from one part of the world to another almost instantly. They would have laughed at the existence of invisible waves upon which sound was carried.
People who believe in things such as you describe simply believe they are real. They don’t need proof that it exsists because to them, it does. Who knows……maybe something will happen that will make you say “Wow! So that is how it works?”
