  • Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Please be honest, and no need to explain why you are either one.This is not about arguing, that happens enough around here with this topic.......Actually, do not even bother replying, just do the poll please :)

It is for my curiosity, and maybe others also......I used to be a believer, and I am sure a lot of others have also, a few things made me change.

I am hoping people on both sides will start to find a way to discuss things, and debate them, without getting upset....

I think this poll will show us all a few things we can all consider......Neither good nor bad, just information.....And not something I am using to make a point...Just a on-going poll with no need to post a reply at all.

This is a general poll, on the " Paranormal ", not for one certain topic.

I never doubted myself for a minute for I knew that my monkey-strong bowels were girded with strength, like the loins of a dragon ribboned with fat and the opulence of buffalo dung.

This will be a huge shock for everyone, I know, but I am actually a skeptic!

My skepticism ranges from mild towards certain paranormal phenomena - such as ghosts - to strong regarding such topics as demons and 'psi powers'.

Oh, and I also do not believe Bracket exists.  :P

Un wavering believer

Today's paranormal researchers err....by clinging to the skirts of science, who's naturalistic viewpoint CAN NEVER allow for the bearing of any fruit.
Not unlike studying the fundamentals of American Democracy, by referencing MEIN KOMPF.

Would seem so, but saw the tally earlier, and it wasn't as it appears now.

Two ends of the same stick to me. No middle ground, anyone on the fence?

Do religion and age make such a difference here?

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.
