Description

Questions can be about past, present and future.

Remember, only ask questions that are answered with "yes" or "no".

In round 1, you ask questions.

In round 2, I answer them.

Nothing too offensive please, or tarot could get angry at us.

In round 2, you say if you think tarot answered questions correctly and if it did, I win, and if not, you win.

Round 1
Pro
#1
Ask your five questions.
Con
#2
The first two questions are about the future so that I can know the answer if tarot turns out to be valid, which I will test with the last three questions which are about the past and that I already know the answer to.

1: Will my life span be shorter than average?

2: Will me and my gf break up?

3: Did I hit another kid with a stick when I was a kid?

4: Did I ever rap battle RM on a different site from Debate Art?

5: Was I eating chicken, sweet potato and green beans while writing this question?

Interesting, it got every single one that I already knew correct. How do you determine the certainty %, just by running it multiple times through multiple different divination methods?

Even if it gets all 5 it doesn't prove divination really works, because it's possible it could get 5 consecutive questions right by chance but it actually does increase the odds that divination is legit.
