I am with Abramelin. I wish Mermaids existed. They are crazy hot. But I think an Ama is as close as I will ever get.

As for cryptids, sorry, none of the above. The Pygmy Elephant is purported to be a cryptid, thats is as close as I get I suppose.

Don't they have to be on earth?

I can imagine that something like Bigfoot might be very real. Gorillas are "Bigfoot like"

In another place.......... I have a strong feeling that we are not exclusive to convergeant evolution.

cobalt60 here, bling...the truth of the matter is simply that there is far too much that we don't know either about or of for us to definitively state other than our belief in said thing; and to be prepared to give forth reasons as to why we do...after all, there will be someone out there listening/reading who has the same frame of mind as we ourselves, yet is just too timid or something else to put themselves forward; such a one always needs encouraging.
There is, however, that which exists outside and independant of anyone's beliefs; and doesn't much care whether we think its true or not.
...Gonna stop right here and now...I might confuse myself by the amount of words I'm using.
PS--I like your picture.

Too bad you didn't include "None" as a choice.
I would prefer to actually think and know rather than believe anyways.

I believe in the Bible, so therefore I believe in angels and demons. I also think there have been so many sightings, etc., of bigfoot/yeti that makes me feel SOMETHING of this type is out there. As for ghosts, having never seen one, I tend to say they exist, and are something better left alone. Now, aliens.....there is so much proof that the government lied and offered at least three different explainations as to what happened in Area 51. Those aliens crashed and the government has been trying to dupe us ever since.

Multiple choice and answers are private :)
They are not private if we tell you here, but i will cos i have nothing to hide.
Ghosts.
Can i ask you why religion was not in the line up? some of us would pick fairies over that.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

What I believe in, and what I'd like to believe in are entirely unrelated concepts.

I believe that my bank account is currently almost empty.  That is the unfortunate reality.

I'd like to believe that there are millions in my bank account.  That is nice but unrelated to reality.

As a result, the OP is very confused and/or confusing. I'd like to believe that there are large humanoids inhabiting the forests of North America (sasquatch), as that is a pretty ******* cool concept, but I don't actually believe there are such humanoids.  Do I select the bigfoot option or not if I answer the poll?

At this point, none of the above.

I dont belive in vampires, werewolves, mermaids and a couple of the others are a bit iffy but I do tend towards the sasquatch/bigfoot especialy the yowie as they cant be mistaken for a bear as oz doesnt have bears so I tend to believe the ozy bigfoot as real.  ps: I like your new pic  :yes:
