Wow, some biggies there.

1. A God (Gods/ or another higher power)

Yes. Maybe not exactly as the bible would have it. I feel that should such a document be truly from God, mankind has done some tinkering with the text since it was handed down.

2. Angels

I suppose another definition of angel would be Ghost anyway. Yes, but more along the lines of 3 rather than as in a heaven/hell angels/demons thing.

3. Ghosts/Spirits

Yes. Maybe it's my lack of comprehension of the human body but the 'soul' seems to be something that I just can't grasp as a logical entity. It seems to me like something more than just flesh and bone. If so, something must happen to it after the body dies.

4. Demons/devils

I also accept the concept of ying and yang. Equals and opposites. If I believe there are angels, there must be demons to counter their existence.

5. Vampires / or other monsters

Vampires? Sadly no. Unless you lot watch 'Twilight' where I'd say 'Thankfully, no'. Monsters? Hmmm... different concept entirely. The human body mutates with every generation. Mostly good, occasionally bad. Nature throws up the occasional monster. We're discovering new species of animal every day. Who is to say we've not discovered a species that we could truly call a monster?

6. Faeries/Elves/Pixies/etc..

Not in the conventional sense, no.

7. UFOs/Aliens

If you mean 'They are here'. No. If you mean that they exist? Most definitely. It would be incredibly arrogant and naive to believe that Earth is the only planet to have biological life.

8. Any conspiracies

Nothing specific. I do believe that a lot more goes on than we are led to believe and things that happen aren't always for the reasons publicised. Man Made Global Warming is a load of nonsense. (Oh sorry, since it has been found that the Earth gets cold too, we'll call it 'climate change' instead). I don't think we're helping matters by not being more 'green' but the claim that we've totally screwed the planet up and that the figures match that? Utter crap! It's just a ploy to get more tax money from us to cover up a load of bad accounting in governmental circles. Global climate goes in cycles of millions of years. We're overdue an ice age by the tune of a few thousand years. I'm more inclined to believe that it's all part of the cycle and man's influence is minimal than believe that using a certain brand of deoderant or not planting more trees is suddenly going to make the planet bomb out. Think about it, a massive asteroid hits Earth, wipes out the dinosaurs and most plant/animal life for a long period of time. Earth then restores itself and is thriving! Then suddenly mankind sprays a few CFCs and cuts down more trees than it plants and the Earth is about to implode? Like I say, as long as we lead greener lifestyles and respect the planet, the Earth will sort itself out. The whole Carbon tax thing is a pure scam!

9. Any celeb being said dead, is actually alive

Yeah. No specific ones though.

10.Other things (please specify)

I believe we are creatures of both nature and nurture. We are no more special than any other creature on the planet. Just that our minds are better developed and have made use of the resources available to us. I believe the universe was created. Maybe not in the way we think it is but there is simply too much coincidence to say otherwise. Whose God is 'God'? None of them really. The concept of 'God' has been manipulated to man's own ends. It doesn't mean there is no God. Just that we don't know anything about him. I personally feel the universe is God. In all things and is everywhere you look. Not Morgan Freeman in a white suit. :)

Thanks Mr. SVB, did not you have a thread about Ghosts? I think that was my inspiration.

Plus: someone I knew asked me once, if fans of scifi/fantasy were more prone to be believers of several of the above.
The above shows interesting results.

I did. At the time I was viewing many videos on ghost encounters or proof of ghosts. Noticing that almost all of it (footage) was virtually the same, I posed the question about why there arent any deformed type of ghost or a ghost of a different proportions (fat, tall,)
Also the fact that at the time I was living in a house that I thought might be haunted or have a ghost, and after a few encounters I determined that it was just my imagination and maybe I should stop watching all these hoax ghost videos since it seemed to fuel the fire. I also chalked it up to the fact that I was experiencing some form of Sleep Paralysis at its height (users experience it the worst from 20-22 years of age Ive been told...and it was f@%king with my sleep.)

So maybe you have to really want to see a ghost, or maybe you have to be in a place where a spirit still exists. As of right now I just dont believe....but I could be suppressing plenty of times/memories of some scary ghost shite happening to me that I've forgot about.
Drm had some interesting thoughts on the subject.....one in particular that I liked .....for reasons why some people just dont see ghosts

For the record, the "Do you believe in ghosts" poll showed many more people believe in ghosts then do not.

Ive been told that if you are a fan of horror movies you have a 50% chance of being a serial killer. So not prone to believe anything based on what I watch or do.
