During Wednesday's Ouija Board Special, an incredible guest line-up delved into the history and practice of the Ouija board, as well as helped George make an important decision regarding his experiment.
Archbishop James Long appeared briefly towards the start of the program to tell George about some recent misfortunes that have befallen his family. Long believes these tragedies are the result of his 7/16/07 Coast appearance, when he spoke about demons, exorcism, and tonight's planned Ouija board experiment.
First hour guest Jerry Edward Cornelius talked about his book, Aleister Crowley and the Ouija Board, which takes a positive perspective on Ouija boards. According to Cornelius, Crowley promoted the use of the board, writing papers on the subject and teaching his students how to use it. Cornelius maintains that Crowley never used the board for evil purposes. He also pointed out that whatever baggage an individual brings to the board it will fulfill.
At the beginning of the second hour, George welcomed Ouija: The Most Dangerous Game author Stoker Hunt, who offered his view on the topic. The Ouija board is not a game, he warned, it is a psychic tool that can induce psychoses in those who use it.
Next, joining George from a 'special room' were Bruce Goldberg, Rosemary Ellen Guiley and Jordan Maxwell, who discussed the implications of using the Ouija board. Goldberg and Guiley fully supported George's experiment (Guiley actually brought in the board to be used), as they saw it as a way to educate the public about the Ouija board and spirit communications. The two, however, did not advocate its use among non-professionals. Maxwell was vehemently against it.
Goldberg invoked 'white light' protection on the proceedings. Then, George shared some personal details from a near death experience he had seven years ago. After taking many things into consideration, George decided not to go through with his Ouija board experiment. In the last hour, callers reacted to George's decision.
