You can choose multiple choices.

Vote any of these controversial paranormal things that you believe in.

If you strongly believe in any of these, vote it twice.

If you somehow believe in any of these, vote it once.

It only lets me vote once, but I definitely believe in ghosts and I have personally had dreams that have later come true, so I guess I believe in foreseeing the future, but not in those carnival psychic con-artists.

I believe there's some sort of weird, as of now undetectable energy floating around us and every so often we come in contact with it in some way and weird stuff happens. How else can I have dreams that later turn out to be reality?

  Hmmmm....Ermm Couldn't  it be mere coincidence, or dreaming of something that you knew (at least subconciously) was LIKELY to happen?
 
 
Have any of your dreams NOT come true? What does this imply?
 
If this foretelling were possible, and reliable, imagine the implications for the stock market, the military, governments, etc. They'd be all over it.
 
 
Sorry -- I think what you've experienced is only coincidence -- nothing supernatural.Stern%20Smile

Here's a "prediction" for you, Stoney:
 
 
I will now log off, go out to ride my motorcycle on some trails (where I may well see an animal or unusual bug), only to return later, and post here again.
 
 
Let's see if my powers of foretelling are reliable....Wink

No, it only happens with very specific situations. It's like reverse deja vu, and it's never anything important, and of course I have no control over it. My theory is that time is like a strip of film, with each frame existing simultaneously with all others, and it is therefore possible to inadvertantly get glimpses into the other frames.

I have also had those dreams that came true later. And when it does you're like "whoa...I dreamed this exact thing a few weeks ago."

I don't believe in any of those things. Ermm

And I don't think dreams can tell you anything or can predict the future or whatever. Or maybe it's just sour grapes because I never remember my dreams. Tongue

Other..

The 12th Imam and the Tooth fairy....

I want to believe in ghosts, as there are many people I'd like to come back and haunt the sh!t out of, but until I have a definitive experiece myself, I remain sceptical.

Incidentally, does anyone think that if you believe in ghosts, it automatically follows that you believe in God?

No, but it is true the other way around.
