The Ouija board, like other forms of divination, has been used in an attempt to contact the dead (necromancy), which is clearly condemned by the Bible. Have NOTHING to do with the occult or Spiritism in any form. Do NOT dabble with what God Almighty has expressly forbidden. Be assured, that for the many that are misinformed, the Ouija board will continue to be accepted as a mere game for entertainment purposes.
They're fake. It's a piece of wood with some writing on it. The only thing it does to you is make you feel like a massive idiot. It's also against many religion's beliefs. I'm a Catholic, and I just went to confession the other day, and on second view of the little sheet of paper they had at the doorway, under Commandment #1, "Thou shalt not have any false gods," it specifically said "Have I participated in the using of a ouija or any other occult practices?" So, if you believe in God, and even if you don't, it's still just a piece of wood with some letters on it; an inanimate object. TL;DR: Nope.
No. They are plastic and cardboard parlor games. Unlike what people are claiming here, it was never invented to contact "spirits" or anything supernatural- it was decades before a shady "medium" and known con woman claimed they could.
Ouija boards work through the ideomotor effect- in other words, you subconsciously move the planchette yourself.
Only if you believe they are. Belief in a thing is the most powerful thing in the universe. If you do not believe me, study the lives of people with split personalities and you will find that some of their personalities had illnesses like diabetes requiring insulin, while the other personalities did not. Our minds are powerful things and can create our reality to an extent.
As clearly outlined in the Bible - yes it is dangerous. Deuteronomy 18:10,12-There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, ?or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium.
Also, the Bible makes it clear that getting in contact with the Dead is not possible. For the dead is unconscious as outlined Eccl. 9:5- For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten.
