    I am going to put my self down as the skeptic who wnts to believe. I don't reject stuff right off the bat, but neither do i accept it completely at first either.

Enter freely. Go safely and leave something of the happiness you bring.

Believer in some cases that seem possible but a skeptic to things that seemingly come out of nowhere ( AKA sounds like some kid thought it up ) .  

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

   I am a believer in the fact that I am a skeptic. But I dont always believe other skeptics.  At times, I tend to be skeptical about believers.
  I firmly believe that believers actually believe some of the more ridiculous beliefs out there while skeptics remain skeptical. But are skeptics skeptical about thier own skeptic beliefs? Of this, Moe believes he is a skeptic.

I'm a believer...doo doo doo doo doo. Very Sorry. Unless their claims seems outrageous or they can't spell what they are trying to talk about.

Then away out in the woods I heard that kind of a sound that a ghost makes when it wants to tell about something that's on its mind and can't make itself understood, and so can't rest easy in its grave, and has to go about that way every night grieving.

From what i understand, the unexplained-mysteries TV show, discusses and presents these mysteries that have existed for many years and have not been explained, hence the title "Unexplained-mysteries".  In addition, it demonstrates many stories and claims of certain paranormal and psychic phenomenon that seems to be quite authentic and true.

To the mere skeptic, one could immediately dismiss these as part of an elaborate scheme for the producers to profit from.  However, there are facts to these and one cannot deny what is known, otherwise you would be in a state of denial, and to deny what is real is to deny your own existance.

To the mere believer, one could immediately approve of all topics and claims that have been demonstrated and shown, without analyzing the facts from the fiction.  And from the perspective of a skeptic, one could simply judge a believer as a gullable "nut-case".

To the fair and open-minded, one could completely analyze the facts from the fiction, and gather his or her own educated judgements, with such logic and clarification, that neither the believer nor the skeptic can dismiss.

And this is where i stand, neither ying nor yang, but generally inbetween.

"To believe something unbelievable is simply "unbelievable", and to believe something believable is simply "believable"--or is it?"
