So what do you believe?

Me and the missus have started watching just about every paranormal show we can find, and she really believes in all that stuff, that people die and can return as ghosts

I believe that there is a spirit world, but those spirits have never been human and trying to contact them could turn out to be pretty nasty.

What do you think?

Do you have any ghost stories ?

I think so, I stayed at my aunts house and around 2am one morning the bathroom door slammed shut. There's no windows in the area, later that night I seen lights swirling around. It couldn't have been from car headlights because her house is way back from the road. She went out to the store once when I stayed there alone and I heard something like foot steps on the second floor, I went up there and no one was there. My aunt didn't believe me about the swirling lights but she called me about 2 weeks ago and said she seen the same thing.

Not dissing anyone's particular beliefs, but not since I was a kid, no. If any ever show up to say hi I'll change my vote though.

I've seen enough weird things to say that there's something else out there, altho a Christian, I don't subscribe to the demon angle either, the demon angle makes no damn sense based on the available evidence

lol I've thought about that before, like watching things like Ghost Adventures, when they are using different equipment to hear voices from beyond, I was imagining a parallel universe with them in the same place doing the same thing and hearing themselves lol

I believe there is a layer of reality which we interact with, yet cannot detect. And that reality is what we perceive as "paranormal".

Yes, ghosts are real -- but there are many different causes.

Not all are the dearly departed. ;)

Wait, does someone actually believe in ghosts?
Not trying to be rude here, but isn't that something to make movies somewhat interesting - rather than something that actually exists?

The poll should sound more like: "are you naive enough to believe in ghosts.... outside of video games?" XD

Such kind of "believing" is called superstition, and I thought people intelligent enough to operate a computer couldn't be affected by this kind of things. Oh well, after all there is someone using Apple "holy" product so everything's possible in this world XD

No -- the movies are based on a glimmer of reality. ;)

There should be an option for people who subscribe to an agnostic view, not believing or disbelieving without seeing proof.

Watch Supernatural, amazing show... I have actually even seen one, and no it wasn't my brain's mistake...about 5 or more years ago, at night, when the power was out in my area, me, my sis and her neighbour friend were hanging out at the balcony at the back of my house, suddenly we saw(all three) a glimpse of a "thing" in white clothes in the corridor, if only i saw then it would me my brain playing tricks but all three of us saw it...I kinda don't believe in ghost but as a Muslim, we believe in Jinns which are one of the the creatures God has created...so i believe maybe for some reason they vibrate at out frequency so we can hear and see them for some short time...

Not sure how to word that option without turning the thread into a religious debate, you're welcome to add the option if you can word it as such :)
