    I do agree, always have.  But then I’ve seen some things science can’t explain, so I have a healthy skepticism and don’t dismiss anything entirely.

    Truly from direct experience, regardless of the nation involved, it is never a sound decision to ridicule or mock another culture's long-standing beliefs, even if held by only a minority percentage of that population, especially when there is a lack of awareness or experience to the particular subject matter. Even more so, if you happen to be residing within that foreign nation. As to the original posting, this is not a topic that I would suggest mentioning in mixed company within the RD, and especially not over the Haitian border. Directly to the original poster, do yourself a good and proper service, and find a different therapist.

    Please provide some examples of what you have personally seen with your own eyes that science cannot explain.

    You make a good point that making fun of ignorant superstitions can get you into trouble.

    I am in less danger on the topic in question since I never intend to cross the Haitian border.
    Some day I might enter the Vatican and "all hell" might break loose.
