Well, the older I get, the more I realize I DON'T know. So while I tend to be a cynic, I have been surprised by a few experiences with that sort of thing. Twice now I've had a reading where they ask the date, place and exact time of your birth, and I must admit those readings were amazingly accurate. Same with the one palm reading I've had. And they weren't just general statements that could apply to anyone (like "you desire affection but don't get enough"). They were things like "You are an artist, often frustrated by having to make a living and not being able to create." and "You are from a very large family and often struggled with feelings of neglect and loneliness as a child" and "You feel more comfortable around animals than people." Now these were people who don't know me, didn't see me, and weren't told anything other than my birth information (even the palm reading was on line- I just answered a bunch of questions about the lines on my hand). It's puzzling, that's for sure.
