Are You A Believer?

You sure are right about that.
Not too surprising though. After all, we are on a paranormal forum and most people that believe do so because of a personal experience.
To me, the best part of this thread is not the poll, but everyone's wonderful posts about thier experiences, opinions and theories.
Same goes for the Ouija board thread.

I enjoy using the science of debunking, with a very natural human psychic ability.

Its everyone elses evidence I have trouble believeing - the sceptic in me often wins
Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.

we used to believe lightening was the anger of the gods...
for lightening to happen certain conditions have to be present
can we apply that logic to the nature of supernatural manifestations?

I think, however, that so many people WANT to experience something paranormal so desperately that they think every photographic anomaly, every strange sound, every little glitch that happens, is something ghostly.
With regard to the television programs mentioned, I tend to feel the same way about all but Ghost Hunters. The TAPS team has turned up some very compelling evidence, and they have also debunked some things that looked for all the world like they were truly paranormal. Like Vlawde, I have a great deal of respect for them and I think that they really are looking for the truth and aren't just trying to convince people that everything they investigate is paranormal.

"It's times like this that you crave the strange. It helps make the world make more sense. It makes the crazy normal, and the unreal real. Because, the unthinkable, without it...all you've got left is reality."

There are one or two hard-core skeptics in this thread, and they have stated that they're mainly on the board to help us better distinguish false positives (things that can be debunked/explained naturally) from the as-yet-unexplained things. But yes, the vast majority of us are believers in the paranormal to some degree...or at least open to the possibility of the supernatural.

When I was younger (wow, I hate typing that), I believed whole-heartedly in the paranormal. But now I'm a little older, possibly a little wiser, and definitely less naive; I find myself much more sceptical on this subject.
So I suppose I would have to say I'm a sceptic, but I'm open to possibilities. I prefer to seek out natural or normal explanations for paranormal experiences, and not just jump on the supernatural bandwagon immediately as I used to do.
In other words, I can accept that weird things happen...but it doesn't necessarily mean there isn't a rational explanation.

Mind if I jump in here? I voted for Yes, I do believe and have experienced the Paranormal.
I also try to be a little bit of a skeptic too and look for logical reasons too.
We live in an old house, that's remodeled and use to be the School House Cafeteria a long, long, long time ago.
I've seen and heard things here as well as my Oldest daughter, but, I try and look for the logical side too.
As for the Paranormal shows, I agree that they tend to Ham things up a bit as well for whoever said that for ratings like AHaunting and all does I'm sure. I'm sure some of that stuff happened but, they probably dramatize it up a bit as well.
Take Care guys,

After all, Jesus was a spirit before he ascended to heaven. I also believe everyone has a guardian angel.
