As a christian, you learn about the devil and his dominions. The things that come across my mind are:
1) Do witch doctors contact what christianity calls the devil.
2) Do ghosts exist - why are they here, could they be mistaken for something else.
3) Do things that are commonly known as the paranormal have explantions.

!!!YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE RELIGIOUS TO ANSWER THIS!!!

1. Christianity in itself is very ambiguous. Whether or not witch-doctors are connected with the devil is something that I think is a matter of opinion. Just keep in mind that witch-doctors do their best to help other people even if it is by unconventional means. Take that into account, that if they were working for the devil they would most likely have bad intentions with their work.

2. Ghosts are supposedly the souls of people who have left something uncompleted before they died. They attempt to stay on earth in order to complete that mission. I personally think that they do not exist, but one can never be sure....

3. If they had explanations then they would not be considered paranormal, now would they?

Pro forfeited and I don't blame Con for not responding. I usually point a single sentence then "ibid" when this happens.

Tried to send you a message, but you have that blocked. Your debate is in the form of questions, and it works better if you affirm your statements and ask for a challenge. E. G. Witchdoctors exist and they contact the devil and here is evidence that it happens, or some such.
