Does this describe you?

* Do not ask questions to try to understand new things.

* Carry a fixed set of unchanging beliefs that all data must conform to.

* Are not interested in truth, evidence, or facts, but only in defending the views of already established conventional beliefs.

* Are willing to lie and deceive to preserve your own views, which are your true master.

* Are judgmental and quick to draw conclusions about things you know little or nothing about.

* Are quick to label as a fraud any other person who has experienced supernatural occurrences and has tried to explain them.

* Scoff and ridicule what you oppose instead of using unbiased analysis.

* Insist that everything unknown and unexplained must have a conventional, "normal" explanation.

* Are unable to adapt your existing beliefs to new ideas and deny data that doesn't fit into your beliefs.

* When all conventional explanations for a phenomenon are ruled out, are not able to accept paranormal ones.

Well -- one thing I do know about you is that anyone who holds different beliefs than you -- regardless of any investigation or experience -- you will automatically attach all or most of the above to them, within having any clue whatsoever as to how they arrived at their beliefs or opinions.

Anyone who doubts or condtradicts your beliefs is closed-minded etc. etc. And then come the personal insults based on your usual guesswork.

I can't wait -- and great to see you again!
