Do you believe in evolution?
I follow the line of thought of the astronomer Carl Sagan. While I am skeptical of actual visits from aliens.... I believe it to be HIGHLY unlikely, statistically, for this to be the ONE world in an infinite universe to sprout life.
As for ghosts, twhen i was a kid.... (and after the stories in this thread, I know this is no blockbuster, but it still happened) lots of times, late at night, in my home. we would hear the definte sound of clapping. It was none of us, so who was clapping and why?
We also, in the same house, once had something weird happen in the daytime. My father was in the living room, sitting in his chair. I was on the floor playing with my GI joes. And suddenly, a ball of light, about the size of a can of soda, quickly came in from the halllway, streaked across the room, and out the window. I was just stunned, and my father yelled to my mom in the kitchen "Hey, I think we just had a visitor!"
