How do you decide what is LARP?

For those of you who aren’t gullible morons who believe anything and everything that people post on here, what is your process in deciding which claims on here to believe, and which ones to throw out? For me…
>Is the claim plausible?
>If it’s not, can they provide ANY evidence?
That method usually helps me filter out 90% of garbage since usually the LARPers are unable to provide even a single shred of evidence. Not a picture, not a time stamp, nothing. They always just fall back on the canned, “I don’t care if people don’t believe me” or, “it’s top secret.”

    I don't trust anything I cannot see with my own eyes or test with my own capabilities, easy enough. Unironically how I started believing in divinity, spirits and demons, whereas I was an atheist before.

      You don’t think, though, that it makes posting and discussing on here a little pointless since we can’t prove anything on here beyond a shadow of a doubt?

        Some things simply ring truer than others. In the end it is pointless to place too much credence into what others say. Take it as a funny little story that is likely made up, discuss what you are interested in, and ignore the rest. Cannot go wrong with that. The paranormal and occult are not known for being easily verifiable.

    Define plausible

      It’s subjective. But, for instance, someone seeing a ghost or a UFO strikes me as more plausible than someone running around on here claiming to be the messiah.

        Why a (or the) messiah specifically?
        And why do you surmise the place filled with larpers?

        Claiming to be God is something that happens a lot when people first awaken a bit of spiritual power. I am sure they feel as though they are a god of some sort.

    Attitude firstly, as in are they talking from a perspective of absolute certainty or getting extremely emotional anytime somebody questions or misinterprets them? If so they're probably a larper, maybe a schizo and either way aren't capable of holding a discussion.

    If not and they're capable of holding a discussion then I'll usually ask for more details and try to determine if any of it is substantiated.

    If I can't find or determine proof for any of there shit, then I'll ask for evidence. Usually if they haven't provided any by this point though then that's a bad sign. Even the more nuanced LARPers will usually provide a 'do it yourself and see' type experiment as evidence if nothing else, so anyone saying just trust their word is lazy. Anyone who makes a claim that by nature is hard to produce evidence of goes in the speculative/maybe pile which is most of my experience on this board atm.

      Very interesting. Do you have any examples of the, “try it yourself and see” that you can recall? The most common ones I’ve seen are the two I listed.

      I agree, but I also think that if you just kind of…give up on trying to separate truth from fiction the you open up the door to, well, quacks.

      I was just using that as an example. Although I’m certain that if I was to search the archives then I’d find people pretending to be the messiah. Can I prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they’re lying? No. But the odds are incredibly favorable to me. I mean, listen, if those claims really seem sufficiently believable to you that you can just accept them without evidence, then fine. I think this board’s users are particularly gullible. I made two LARP threads to, “test it myself” and guess what? In only one of the threads did two people bother asking me to verify my claims.

        The flat earthers(which I think the ones who spam the copypasta here are trolls who don't believe it) have a frick ton, I mean every one that I've looked into has shown them to be wrong, but they provide a lot(most of them based on horizon points and such)

        Covid vaccine conspiracies occasionally have some, mostly ones that I doubt anyone would actually try. There was one that involved digging up the corpse of a vaccinated person to prove there were parasites feeding on it.

        One recent example I'm following is the Alawite AMA guy's astral projection method, which I might actually try but haven't yet.
        >I made two LARP threads to, “test it myself” and guess what? In only one of the threads did two people bother asking me to verify my claims.
        I'm more inclined to assume the people in those threads were playing along with the LARP rather than actually believing it, but I'd have to see the threads.

          All me. I can’t believe anyone would actually buy such garbage. I feel like, “I was just playing along” is a cope. I mean, they’re basically pretending to be moronic.

            I mean that's what they do here, on large portions of this site it's pretty much all they do. Looking at the posts in the thread I can't say one way or another if they believe, but if I was more bored I could see myself asking for a reading in there just to play along.

            When it's shit like "I'm Satan AMA" I kind of get it, it's like a mild creative writing exercise with some superficial social interaction to make it more stimulating.

            The shit I don't understand is the LARPers who spam angry schizo shit, because most of the time they won't even try to have an actual conversation, just reply to you with more unrelated schizo rants.

            At least the people spamming fake conspiracies could be written of as trolls or glowies.

            Well frankly, LARP isn’t paranormal and jannies should move these creative writing exercises to EerieWeb. With the exception of creepypasta, this board isn’t for cooking up talk tales. Not that anyone cares.

            Kind of. It maybe wasn't always this bad but EerieWeb has and likely will always require you to sift through garbage to find anything good.

    Evidence is always the largest indicator i mean even when you ask specific detailed questions that either make or break the larp is a method i use if op sounds vague, deflects, makes excuses, like oh my camera was busted, they got butt fricked the night before and were to sore or whatever the biggest obvious larps are time travelers they can never provide any real tangible evidence

    I’d add that I think that something that fuels LARP is that when you remove a lot of the theatrics, flashing lights, and outrageous claims from paranormal discussion, then you end up with something that is far less exciting than what horror novels, movies, etc. depict. People want the creepy ghost girl whose head is spinning around and spraying vomit while shouting in tongues. They don’t want, “well, something keeps falling off the shelf on its own.” That’s lame. It doesn’t hold the attention of the average tiktok user.

    its more like an "what if..." game, at least to me
    doesnt mean im not somehow invested as long as the discussoin or larp goes

      Everything is a LARP. That's ok, larps are fun. Just recognize that it is all a larp and shitpost with everyone else

      I feel like this is just asking me and others who actually enjoy learning about the paranormal to just drink kool-aid and play along with the delusions and cons of some hucksters.
      >it’s all just a joke haha, just believe and go along with it like we do, join us, join us

      LARPs fall into 2 categories.

      1.Those who vaguepost and only provide a small amount of "unknown" information and they give you some bullshit life lesson that every 2 year old knows.
      2. Those who provide too much information but all that information can be found in $5 Amazon book and still give you the same bullshit life lesson that every 2 year old knows.

      I generally see LARPs in the form of people claiming to be someone or something special.

      So far I have not believed a single paranormal thing on here. Things about evil humans doing evil things, sure. But I’ve yet to be convinced by any alien/cryptid/ect thing on here. I’m patiently waiting though.

      In my experience, it’s something you gotta experience for yourself to really believe.

    On the paranormal front if it doesn't line up with what knowledge and truths I have been able to learn from meditation and spiritual practices than I ignore it. On the conspiracy front I generally will ignore people who say they are in the big club and are disclosing info. At best they fell for a trap and were told false info to see if they disclose it.

    Skin walkers are real. I don't really know what they are, but they are out there. They can change shape. I have seen them change shape right in front of me. They also have some sort of psychic attack. They can instill a feeling of pure fear and panic. There is a lot of skin walker LARPs, but they are really out there.

    With experience and knowing things you find out what is larp and what is not.
    The way they write and words they use, help me to spot them.
    Sometimes long stories sound like, let me to convince you of something.
    Do there messages have truth, do they have a positive message, is there message based on love?
    Are they having good intentions? Are they seeking for attention or a discussion or seeking help to there questions?
    Dose there claim have sense, or is just elaborated story.
    Can they provide at least a source from where there claims are coming from, if they can't is a larp. Or sadly guy don't have anything but difference would be, if it have some common sense with no evidence, if ideas he talks about come from his real life experience and he is just expressing his views.
    They want to argue with you, derail you away from the topic. Just get angry on you for no reason.

    From my experience speaking truth, is braking there ego and they can't hold it up for long.
    I mostly ignore larpers, is waste of time. I'm not here to prove anyone wrong or right is up to them to decide, if they want to live in Love (truth) or Fear (lie).
