As title siad, do you believe in real life genies? Not as jinns but rather as good people who secretly done noble things to help others.
Idea comes after I watched french movie called Amelie but I also remembered x file episode where Genie was introduced.

Nevertheless I like to hear your thoughts.

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy..."

People who do noble things in secret, although never heard of them as genies, exist as far as I believe.

Sometimes divine intervention is also required and stories of angels appearing to help others are also not unheard of.

Stories like this are really important for those who believe but not very important to others who do not.

It is all modern folklore.

no there are no such things as genies that i know of.
i wouldn't trust one anyway, based on what i've seen in the movies they always want to trick you or make you sorry you wished for what you did! jerks.

  You are correct, they have been dreamed up by various authors writing books.The kind that make children happy the same as Fairies, Witches, Goblins and a host of other Creations. Kids love to hear stories of wicked witches etc, being outwitted, its all part of growing up.And I bet you will go to see "The Hobbit", as I will, pure fantasy but it entertains for a couple of hours,and guess what, they aint no cuss words in this movie. Cheers.
