Quote# 90127

Finally, psychic ability does indeed seem to be genetic. I wasn't raised by my biological mother; I only got to know her when I was an adult, after I had experienced a sudden psychic awakening. Imagine my surprise when I learned that she had had all sorts of psychic experiences, that her mother was well known for her abilities, and that my great-grandmother was famous in England for reading tea leaves. While I haven't been able to find any scientific research into the genetics of psychic ability (most scientists are still hung up on trying to prove that psychic ability doesn't exist), there is a ton of anecdotal evidence to suggest that, like musical and athletic ability, genes do play a strong role in psychic potential.

Which brings me to your question about blood type. (Prepare to slide down the rabbit hole!) If you're not familiar with the ancient astronaut theory, I recommend you start your research there. Basically, some people believe that the Earth is a big gardening project begun long ago by visitors from space, and that aliens have been genetically engineering hybrids for many centuries. These folks believe that people who have Rh negative blood are crossbreeds between humans and aliens. These Rh negative folks are known to have a number of unusual traits, including pronounced psychic ability.

If Rh neg people are half alien, and I have a single copy of the "Rh neg" gene, am I one quarter alien?

My ass used to be psychic, but then it got this crack right up the middle.

The human genome project left more questions than answers.

Why there's this field called 'epigenetics' now.

Your first sentence is correct, it's your premise that psychic abilities exist that is flat out wrong.
As for the bullshit about Rh negative blood, I almost peed myself with laughter when I read it. What a moron.

You may be thinking of Psycho, not Psychic

It seems pretty fundie to me. Not religious, but just try switching a few words. It has all the hallmarks of the fundamentalist mindset, just applied to some quasi-Raelian newage woo-woo.

Also: Bullshit! In many, many scientific experiments on psychic ability/telekinesis/ESP/whatever, the scientists have wanted a positive result. In fact, except those where the scientists were motivated by a distrust of supernaturalists and spiritualists, and even including some of those, I'd wager they were all hoping for a positive result as that would be a major scientific breakthrough. They would win Nobel prizes and shit. It would certainly be better for the researchers than disproving psychic ability, which would get them nothing but the recognition they would garner for coming up with a way to prove a negative. However, even the most convincing psychics couldn't replicate their results under lab conditions. There has never been any scientific proof of anyone having any kind of psychic ability. That's why most scientists dismiss it now: about 50 years ago, they largely gave up trying to confirm and record it after nearly a century's worth of charlatans failed to let them.

Anecdotal evidence is meaningless. In court, they call it 'hearsay'. Perhaps you're familiar with this?

And no, Rh- folks are not known to have a number of unusual traits. Well, I guess they are, but only if that number is one.

aside from perfect pitch-hearing, i doubt that music has to do with genes... and i'm a guitarist who used that argument to start guitar ("dad plays, ergo i'll learn faster"). i'm getting more and more convinced it's more learning and bathing in a culture of music that helps, not the genes. could be wrong though

Wait, this sounds familiar. Hey, is't this a plot line about faeries, from Tru Blood?

No, you're confused. You're mixing up the word 'psycho' with 'psychic'.

"psychic ability does indeed seem to be genetic"

Whilst I'm as much of a 'Lurker' - that's "Babylon 5" fan to those not in the know - as the next, and I know that millions of years ago, the Vorlons manipulated the 'Younger Races' (and not only in the way that we would perceive them outside of their Encounter Suits; as 'Angels of Light' to Humans, and other sacred beings to the Minbari, Narn, Drazi, Vree, Pak'Ma'Ra et al) in their development/evolution; a certain percentage of such to become Telepaths, to be used as a sort of 'psi-countermeasures' against Shadowships in any future war against their eternal enemy the Shadows, even I know that the TV series "Babylon 5" is not a documentary..

It's true that a handful of bloodlines have inherited a limited extra sense from breeding between ancient humans and Those Who Came Before, but they're not actually aliens.

And if you do have the ability to see 'the blue glow', then watch out for Abstergo operatives, because some seriously bad **** is going down right about now.
