I always wondered do people believe in ghosts, and aliens due to the amount of movies they make about them. Personally I do. How about you?

I believe in demons. Not really on ghosts. I'd like to think there are aliens out there.

#7 Posted by Racob7 (5992 posts) - - Show Bio

Ghosts are certainly a possibility. Aliens not existing is just downright illogical

Ghosts - no

Aliens - yes

Aliens are a possibility, though I doubt that they'd be as intelligent as what we see on TV (though not completely impossible).

Ghosts... no.

yep

I don't really believe in ghost but do believe in demons if that means anything. I don't believe in aliens.

#14 Posted by dccomicsrule2011 (26109 posts) - - Show Bio

Ghost? maybe. Aliens? I'm 100 percent sure there is life on another planet, so yes.

#15 Posted by Glitch_Spawn (17132 posts) - - Show Bio

Aliens? No, perception is a weird thing.

Aliens? It's very possible.

Of course! I often travel to lower-fourth dimension to do battle with these fiends.

Ghost nope. I am a big skeptic when it comes to the paranormal. Aliens eh it is a possibility.

Ghosts nope.

I believe in the concept of Aliens as the chance of life outside our planet is too great to ignore but I doubt they are humanoid grey things that abduct people and perform probing......

@thundergodswrath: Ghosts? Not exactly, I have my own weird theory about those..

Aliens? Sure, it would be ignorant to to say in the vastness of the universe there isn't other intelligent life

Well depends, i believe there is life, but i don't believe in aliens and when i say aliens it should look like e.t or something.

#31 Posted by joshmightbe (25003 posts) - - Show Bio

Ghosts- Not really but I don't discount the possibility.

Aliens- Yes but I doubt they come and abduct red necks, but statistically it is unlikely that Earth is the only planet in the entire universe to have life on it especially considering that there was at least some bacterial life confirmed to have existed on Mars at some point along with some indications of possible bacterial life on a few meteorites that have been discovered, so they have technically confirmed that life has existed off Earth.

Aliens definitely exist. I refuse to believe God only filled One planet with life

#33 Edited by lykopis (10746 posts) - - Show Bio

Aliens are extremely likely and as for ghosts, I have learned to listen to people's experiences. It's very much tied with memory and the past so I believe in my own interpretation of what ghosts are.

#34 Posted by Teerack (7362 posts) - - Show Bio

Every thing about science points to the fact it's impossible there aren't aliens out there somewhere.

And if ghosts were real there wouldn't be a million shows about ghost hunting were every single episode ends in "inconclusive"

I don't want to but seeing a bright light falling from a sky is hard to explain (trust me I have gone over it a million times in my head)

I've had things thrown off a table at me with no apparent cause, so yes to both.

#37 Posted by The_Legendary_SuperSaiyan_Hulk (10673 posts) - - Show Bio

@pfcoolio14: Well, you know how they use those devices to detect them? Well, what if what they are actually detecting is left-over energy from people's past. Usually what they call 'ghosts' are somewhere something traumatic has happened, such as murders or suicides. What if our most traumatizing moments somehow leave energy enough in those places to 'reenact' those times in our life? Energy can not be destroyed nor created, therefore what if the energy used there for some reason gets trapped into whatever happened there? Of course, they seem to happen long after it has happened or even the death of the person, then eventually the tales of that place and people saying what they experienced just seems to disappear. But what if the energy that is 'stuck' there reawakens for some reason when people get near it? What if they just happen to do the exact motions happening that said 'ghost' had done before it 'died', and it just happens to set it off? Don't ask me why I think this lol, I have no idea how it would work either....

I don't believe in things, I know, I don't know and or I pretend to know and guess heh heh. I don't know if ghosts exist, I know that human perceptions are both pretty faulty and very susceptible to attributing and labeling phenomena they don't understand and that historically the concepts of ghosts have been introduced to explain such phenomena that has since been discovered to have more naturalistic explanations or likelihoods. I also know that human minds are also adapted to be able to think of conceptual non real things to aid in the practice of surviving and living as a real thing, so it can take time to train itself to acknowledge that the ability to think of something doesn't actually make it true or real, even in spite of lack of contradicting evidence.

I know aliens exist because a pretty common definition of aliens is of foreigners visiting a country. I assume one means extraterrestrial aliens, and I don't know if they exist, but I do know that life's definition is in flux, so deciding what is life external to Earth and thus alien might be a bit tricky when we don't have a certain unchanged criteria for life on Earth, which is a good thing mind you. In fact our definition of life may not really be set in stone until we explore more of the Universe. I also know its possible given the size of the Universe that there is a lot to explore and know and that we may find many things including things that we define as living and alien, but also that there is much we don't know including how often life as we define it arises and that the Universe may just be very large to us. Our Universe may be standard or rare, examples of life like us might have once every 15 billion years (in which case our species will probably never know) or 5000 times every 15 billion years (which still may mean our species may never know, but the chances are greater) so you know, either way is pretty amazing.

With how big the universe is, it would be extremely unlikely if other forms of life didn't exist. I hope we get to meet and befriend them someday.

Tell me more please :) (about your interpretation of what ghosts are)

@mrdecepticonleader:

Well, it's a bit difficult to explain.

Outside of a few instances when I was younger which I have reached resolution with - my ghosts are constructs of certain people in my past who no longer with me but are very much a part of what shaped me into the person I am so far. In acknowledging (remembering) and accepting that influence (an influence I consciously permit), there is an awareness I experience during times of extreme stress and upset I have sometimes been able to derive comfort from. Sometimes I mentally reach out to them (which I am learning to not do as much) but there are times that awareness I created comes forward, unconsciously. So I have created my ghosts according to memories and knowledge I have of certain people who are gone from my life in a physical sense.

(hope I didn't lose you too much, lol)

So if you believe in ghost can you state why. It's a very interesting fact. If you don't believe ib ghosts, you have to be sort of naive because do you really believe were the onlyones in this universe? So yeah explain why you believe in them please?

Wow interesting. I had to read it over a few times to fully understand what you are saying but I get what you mean. And I think that is a good way too look at the people who are no longer around who were in life to understand that they shaped who you are or a part of your life.

I know that I think I can relate to what you say as well.

Thank you for sharing that. :)

@ragdollpurps: Freaky. I remember I put my watch on a pile of comic books, and it feel off once. Than I thought maybe it was at the edge so I put in the middle and it fell again. I repeated this twice more and than it stopped.

@thundergodswrath: The reason I believe in life on another planet is because it is logical. If life is a 1 and 1,000,000 thing, there are way more then one million planets in the Universe,so that is how I came to this conclusion; to me it is impossible for there not to be life on another planet. Richard Dawkins said something similar to what I said in the 'Greatest Show On Earth' but I am way to lazy to pull out the quote right now lol.

I see, that's interestingly true. Although I believe the chance is a lot bigger than that.
