Why do Thai people believe this black magic BS?

Just another way for so-called monks to make money.

 

After my accident, some monks claimed to have seen my ghost on the balcony of our home.

They claimed that they had to perform a ritual to get my ghost to leave the home.

Wifes family said when our sister comes home we will get you to perform the ceremony.

 

Hello i am still here not dead, so just a money making ruse by the monks.

Why do they believe anything without evidence, cite any religion all are equal in the stupidity stakes.

Happened daily in Europe. But that was in the 14th century. Definitely a good place to invest your live savings and looking foreward to a life far removed from western "decadence". Enjoy!

Cheers.

A shining example of TV decadent comments :tongue:

Same thing happened to a neighbor of mine in a village outside of Chiang Mai. During the evening monks and 'others' gathered at his dilapidated house, screams and shouts rang out amidst chants and prayers, and by morning he was announced dead. They had obviously failed to remove that evil spirit and it killed him.

Surely the hospital should have reported the poor girls demise, and therefore set the system in motion for an autopsy...???????

That's what I was thinking

So you have a person die on the bed in a hospital & they just let them cart them of

So what are they going to put on the Death Cert once the official paper work starts to go through the system ( my daughter died ) HOW ?

 

PS: We will need to identify her. Sorry can not, we cremated her

Having attended far too many funerals here I am surprised that absolutely nobody had their smart phone out and taking pictures of the ceremony and possibly the monks which could be a good starting point in apprehending these charlatans ??

Superstitions everywhere in Thailand as there are in many third world countries.  Thailand my not be third world in some aspects but when it comes to ignorance it is right up there.  My brother-in-law policeman is terrified of ghosts and has to sleep with the light on.  Maybe something he learned at university or police college?

No, more likely something he learned from superstitious parents or relatives, and then reinforced further at the temple and various other animist traditions and ceremonies that are part and parcel of Thai and Isaan cultural life.

 

But don't think that superstitions are confined to "third world" (NB: an outdated and inappropriate term) countries alone. They are very much in evidence in everyday life here in UK and the West in general. People avidly reading horoscopes, not walking under ladders or touching wood when they need reassurance or crossing themselves is no less irrational or superstitious than a lot of the things that are superstitions in Thailand. And ignorance is alive and kicking in every Western nation - Brexit and Trump as president is living proof of that truism. In fact, Idiocracy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idiocracy) has come to the US 500 years sooner than Mike Judge imagined. :shock1:

 

The Simpsons creators were mighty prescient about how quickly mass ignorance would speed the decline in America, however. :clap2: 

So don't imagine for one second that Thailand has some sort of monopoly on ignorance and superstition, but look more critically at your own homeland, wherever it happens to be.

My word. Get these people democracy now!

 

I can see why people are demanding democratically elected government. These people are definitely in a fine position to come together and decide who should govern their country.

 

Can't wait to see who they choose, should the Junta follow through with their promises.

While you're partly right, the culture and education of the individuals also make a difference.

 

A Thai Buddhist raised in central Bangkok would be far less likely to fall for this scam, a Thai Buddhist raised in a Western country even more so.
