    He believes in everything but witchcraft which I think is possible. Not the "I put a spell on you" witchcraft but the worship the devil stuff which is scary as heck (I do not believe the women killed in the trials were witches)

    Ryan believes in ghosts, demons who possess people or live under a bar, and that aliens kill hikers, light people on fire, and helped build the great pyramids, but is shocked that Shane would think he believes in witchcraft. Seems legit.

    Witchcraft is real and you can study it and be apart of it/region that revolved around it but it is just barely used and not talked about much at all. But it isn't like bubbling pots with fog coming out and wands and flying broomsticks, but more of healing crystals and sage and meditation and prayer.

    truthfully, I think the reason they didn't get much of a response is because they aren't believers of the craft, they lack true understanding for the victims

    sometimes i wish to go back in time with a time machine to this salem witch trials period to see what the puritans see is actually witchcraft or like what we've seen now, these people who were accused are just mentally ill and/or just midwifes.

    • jane lane
      jane lane 6 days ago

      and guys, witchcraft is real and it's practiced today there are a community of actual witches out there and it has no relations to satan or any kind of demon or devil. the closest interpretation to real life witchcraft in a movie was the craft (1996)

    the voices played by the ghost i can say are coincidences but i can see were ryan believes it can be ghost by timing (literally writing this i here ryan reading this) at the certain times they "spoke" its not really communication do to the sounds and time placement...i am a believer of ghost but i do believe logic can take place

    I've always had some strange connection to the Salem Witches/Trials. It creeps me out but our ancestors were living in Salem during this time. After I figured this out after years of feeling some weird connection to this, I did some research and many of the executions happened ON MY BIRTHDAY. I've always jinxed things and predicted things and the reoccurring number in my life that I see everyday or always pops up is 911. I don't k ow what it is... any ideas on what this could mean? I'm a big Christian though so 😂
