I voted NO but it really depends on the story. I am a man of 1 science and 2 faith. I know biology and chemistry pretty well. I also have a fair understanding of physics. I can explain most magic tricks after seeing them the first time. If I don't get them the 1st time I do get them the 2nd. I don't believe that Aliens from a distant planet are abducting people just to stick stuff in their bunghole. I know it would take MILLIONS of years at the speed of light for ANY thing of any mass to make it to Earth. For something to travel for Millions of years AND have life on it it must basically be a traveling civilization AND have the capability of providing food for those inhabitants. Not to mention the logistics of the psycological size of this. A person who didn't grow up with a planet would not have a complete concept of it, much less a being a few thousands of generations removed!

Now there are things out there that just CANNOT be explained using the knowledge we currently have but hey people thought that rivers flowed from the sea to the mountains at one point in time! Having said this I can say that I do believe in some things but not most. My line in the sand is how many teeth the people have that tell the story. If it is less than 15 teeth in the mouth then they likely cannot be trusted.*

*This part was a joke but most people can judge the stories correctly based on their gut instincts.

When me and Marcia started dating I was still skeptical,

then a voice out of her fireplace at her old rental house

yelled at us clear as a bell after we... ummm, well you

know. :wink:

I was so sure I heard a voice I looked for a tape

recorder or some other "non-supernatrual" explanataion.

Then I find out the house was residence for Nuns back in

the 16-hundreds. Creepy way of lettig you know pre-

marital relations are not okay in their book. :blink:

I don't think so... And if it turns out I'm wrong, I doubt Intelligent life would really want to contact us. Two reasons... one, our race is kinda mean and two... they likely have wireless internet and have been to YouTube and seen that we're also kinda dumb...

Besides... ever notice how it's people in the deep south who only seem to claim they were abducted. You never hear of a Japanese person or African dude getting abducted...

Do I think that we are not alone in the universe? Yes. The universe is far too big for us to be the only intelligent life around. Do I think that aliens are en route to destroy/enslave/abduct the human race? No.

I'll just say that I do think that there are ghosts...I like to think that there are at least.

:rolleyes: Yes all of us in the south are abunch of dumb hicks in the same way all you canadians are abunch of pot-smoking hippies......seriously though, ive never claimed to be abducted by aliens and it's not just people from the south that claim this to have happened to them.

My dad's company restored this Japanese guy's house who claimed he was abducted. It was funny, because the guy tried to get my dad to give him an "abductee discount." I think my dad gave him $5 off the job.

He also called Tony Blair the Tooth Fairy and William Howard Taft Santa Claus, but that's another story...

I often wish there was a tongue in cheek emoticon.  ^_^

Im not sensitive, it's just being from the south, especially Texas, I often hear stereotypical comments from people that don't live here. It just gets old and tiring after awhile dude.

Well some people that go to chat no what i have been encountering the past week.

Over the years i have some unexplained stuff happen but i just ignored it. until about 4 days ago some crazy $h! started to happen. circuit breakers poping. The Flood pump kicking on for no reason. Stuff falling down brand new lights burning out whilw standing underneath them.Florescent lights just go black no dimming or anything. seeing stuff in the corner of your eye. Nothing holding a battery charge. lights turning on. next morning both of my cars need to be jump started. Also that night it was around 68-70 outside and the up stairs dropped to 48ºF and the basement to 52.

Then last night some stuff happened again. like a very heavy unsafe feeling someone watching you mood. then my sreen on my speaker falls off(its an old Kenwood were it firmly goes on then snaps in place requires exceesive force to remove). I go to pick it up, my body gets real tense like a flinch almost preparing to get hit then something touches me. My G/F leaving the house to go to a Hotel to sleep the night.

Also last night my frienbd mark brings over his newly bought 1982 olds Cutlass diesiel and it wouldnt start back up. so i help roll it into my garge so he can work on it. about 10 minutes after my speaker screen fell off he informs me that the gas tank fell off and there is 16 gallons of diesiel in my backyard.

I am i guy that says well somthing happened to make this happen. Either there is some crazy bad timing of $h! or somthing i have no knowledge of is messing with me.

I have been in one house in my life that made me drop my skeptic view a little and my house might have made me think twice about my that i should not still be skeptical anymore.

Diesel Cutty? Damn let's see some pictures please!

As far as the paranormal I've listed my only legit

encounter... I've been freaked out before & one

time recently thought I saw a face in the window

but I was not "sober" so I can't say it was anything

to be taken seriously.

They tried, but trying to visually represent a tongue in cheek just creates way too many other insinuations. :AH-HA_wink:

I wouldn't rule stuff like that out entirely, but I think most of them are just people trying to explain things they don't have the knowledge to understand fully. A great example is the way that people tend to say that the crazy dreams caused by sleep paralysis are actually an alien abduction or a visit from some demonic being.

Sleep Paralysis Abductions

So yeah, label me a skeptic. Sure would be fun if they were real, though.

I'm skeptical. After hearing stories from my mom about ghost encounters, I know such things exist, but I'm scared $h!less of having such an encounter. My mom's made me terrified and paranoid of such things unintentionally. So, I don't want to believe they exist, but I know they do.

ha no seances . . .

theres an old plantation near my house . . . and the only thing really standing is an old slave house and when you go to the top of the house in the attic it gets cold even where theres light and then you open the door to the top of the stairs and its really cold but if you stepped inside the room you actually literally got soo hot you immediately sweated profusely . . . and heard a child crying . . . we kinda did research and put like herbs and cairns and charms up and carved them into the door and now you can barely hear the crying or the temperature change . . . or the smell of burning flesh blah i hate that

the poltergeist tho was in my friends old house and its still there but its cool . . .

actually my friend just told me her house is not only haunted but its got like dozens of secrets so im going exploring with a studfinder and a flashlight in her house

I don't believe in such nonsense, nor do I especially care.

I hate to belive it too. but for somethings i have tried and searched for explanations but i have none. Feelings and emotions can be fake but the physical movement of objects is too much and hard to explain.
