Do you believe fortune-telling?

Postby mkoo » Fri Feb 15, 2008 4:51 am

Do you believe fortune-telling?
There are many kinds of fortune-telling that depend on crystal gazing,palmistry,
cartomancy,horoscope,animals,etc.
I like horoscope best!
It is popular in Japan.
I believe it because it often comes true.

Actually, I don't believe in anything of that, and horoscopes are always very general so is difficult that they are wrong. They say things like : "Today you'll have a big surprise", which can be about everything. Also, the persons that practice crystal-gazing are great psychologists and more or less try to say things that will go well with the persons in front of them.

They should be called "unfortune teller".

when it comes to fortune telling, I have some contradictions... I mean on one hand I know that my religion doesn't allow believing in anything like that, and that the only person that should know the future is God, but on the other sometimes we all feel like we'd like to know what will happen or if something will be good for us or not. And maybe I try not to believe in these things but sometimes I actually do read horoscopes, but more for fun. I realise they're just some people's inventions. Anyway it reminds me of my mum. She's actually a little obsessed with reading about things like that. She keeps watching on telly this "Esoteric channel". I once watched with her and there was this one guy talking on the phone with people telling him about their problems. It was very sad to me especially when some of these women were in fact crying on the phone talking about how miserable their life has been, but the problem is, that in my opinion this guy never really comforted them in a way. He kept talking about some unimportant stuff, but there were no words of consolation at all. I just though these women were really helpless if they looked for help calling this kind of programme. Unless it wasn't all directed of course...

I can only say that horoscopes are fun.I don't believe it,but sometimes we need something to make us feel better. For example,if last year we read that we will be succeed in something next year,we will try and do something great,because we are waiting for victory!But...of course,we should be careful about this,because not everything they say is true. :|

I really dont belive in fortune-telling very much. Í´m kind of sceptical obout this because people that dedicates to this sometimes they just want to obtained money from naive people. I also think that fortune is something that you create for yourself with your actions and you cannot expect to guide your life with something that another person tells you.....what do you think??????
