People used to believe that telephones could let them speak to the dead

With each passing scientific and technological breakthrough, we get one stet closer to being called witches by people of days past. Even today, it’s hard to tell what is fake science and what is real science. When the telephone was first invented, being able to hear the voice of a loved one you could not see–and who could be partway around the world would have blown their minds.

Thank about it. If the only way you could hear someone’s voice was when they were physically in front of you and someone showed you a box that let you hear them from oceans away–you would think it was magic, too.

Would you think it could let you talk to the dearly departed?
