I though this would be an interesting spin-off... please share why you believe what you believe, if it's based on what you feel is scientific fact, or superstition.<br><br>
Awww... sugar! That was meant to be a poll where you could click on multiple replies.

ETA: I may have misinterpreted the question...oops. oh well!</b><br><br>
Mostly I believe in people. Despite all the crap and rubbish that people seem to come up with and all the damage that we've done, I still have faith in people.<br>
I teeter between agnosticism and atheism and sometimes feel convinced that there is an alternative/concurrent power (spirit/soul kinda stuff) but when it comes down to it, I ultimately believe that people hold the power to make the world what it is. And though my faith is waining, I still believe that WE can and will succeed in making the changes that need to happen before it's too late.

I believe in what most call "ghosts" but for me it's more like an energy or presence. I believe that physic abilities exist.<br><br>
Loch Ness? I have no clue...maybe. Same about aliens. Neither of those things matter much to me though. My Dh totally believes in aliens.

Just curious, for those of you who believe in fairies and elves/pixes, can you tell me more? What are they, where do they live and all that? I think that I would like fairies!

Oh, that's me. I can't imagine that in a big-bad infinite universe, there isn't SOME sort of other life out there. So I think they exist.<br><br>
But I don't believe in the UFO kind of alien with the big eyes or alien abduction or anything like that.<br><br>
I also sort of believe in psychic abilities, but I tend to think that psychics are just people who are unusually attuned to the subtle verbal and nonverbal cues people give off.<br><br>
Oh, and flyingspaghettimonsterism. I belieeeeeeve!<br><br>

I believe that in the universe the conditions for life might serendipitously exist and there could possibly be life somewhere else. That's a heckuva lot easier believing in fairies, well, depending on what you mean by fairies. I wish the brownies would come and clean my house at night. And fix my shoes, darn it!

I only clicked yes for aliens. And I don't really <i>believe</i> in aliens, I just think it's possible that there might be other life out in the humongous universe. I would be extremely shocked and surprised if there was ever definitive proof of ghosts, fairies, loch ness monster, yeti, etc... But I wouldn't be so surprised to see proof of other intelligent life in the universe.
