I definitely believe that there is like on other planets. As Lord Simian pointed out, statistically, it's probable.

As for ghosts, well, I'm a skeptic. I've never had any personal experiences with them. And Thunderstorm, your story spooked me out so much.

As far as ghosts go.. I have a theory on that. Since I don't necessarily believe in an after-life, but at the same time, there are far too many stories out there about ghosts and hauntings for me to just disregard...

What if ghosts aren't dead people? What if it's just another dimension, directly on top of ours, that is seeping through every now and then, but not fully? This is pretty much in-line with my previous post about there being far too much out there in the universe that we just can't yet comprehend.

That's an interesting theory and certainly possible. It's certainly as plausible as any other. Like you said previously, there's so much we don't know about the universe. I'm skeptical of ghosts but I tend to lean towards their existence than against it. A story like Thunderstorms, as does Carrie's, helps my belief in them.

Thunderstorm, that's one of the scariest stories I've ever seen told.

I know Keith watches Ghost Hunters, but does anyone else watch it? Or Paranormal State?

I have a friend who grew up in the suburbs of Memphis in an old farm house. For months they had things that would either be moved from where they put them or had disappeared completely. One day her mom went to take a shower, took her towel from a hook on the back of the door and laid it on the counter beside the tub. When she went to get out, it was gone. She looked and it was hanging back on the hook. She called out to my friend that their friend was back to which my friend replied that maybe it was a ghost. As she was walking out of the bathroom, her mom said "Well I wonder what his name is?" When she went back in the bathroom a few minutes later (keep in mind, they are the only two home), the name "JIM" was written in the steam on the mirror.
That's a fantastic story.

Essentially they're big ol' invisible lines that join up many ancient (and in some cases modern) monuments. Some people say it's coincindental or can be put down to astronomy, but personally I think there's much more to it than that. The wiki article is actually pretty good on them.

I have some sympathy for belief in ghosts etc, but what do you all think of career mediums like John Edwards? Sometimes they make me angry...

By "career medium", do you by chance mean "cold reader"?

South Park was right about Edwards, totally.

Yeah, pretty much. I'd forgotten about that South Park episode, it was sweet.

I may have told you all this story before, not sure, but true story. About three months after my mother passed away (I was 20 at the time), I woke up in the middle of the night to find her sitting in my chair at the end of the bed.

I sat up against the head board and started crying. She told me I was going to be fine and my life was going to turn out to be better than I thought it would. She told me she loved me, and then she was just gone.

It was weird since after she had vanished I was sitting up thinking that I must have imagined the entire thing, but her perfume was in my room, and it lingered there for an awefully long time.

I know I've told this story to many friends and co-workers and they all smile and say things like, "Possibly." or that condescending, "All that matters is that you believe it."

But I know it happened. I was never weirded out by it, though.
