No spirits, no ghosts, no ESP, mind reading, no orbs, no OBE's...I guess there were 'weird coincidences' and what I thought were answered prayers...

The thing is I remain agnostic, open, yet at the same time skeptical. In terms of religion I was raised Christian but always struggled with the beliefs of mainstream Christianity. I consider myself naturally scientific, yet I've more open to the 'supernatural' than I was when I was a basically agnostic teen.

One time my uni friend was talking to me about ghosts really matter-of-factly, as believers do. He spoke as if he KNEW they existed, as if they were as real as anything else in this world. I asked if him he'd take me on a 'ghost-hunt' once but he kinda brushed it off, as if I was just a curiosity seeker. I haven't tried to involve myself in the paranormal since.

I'm just wondering if anyone else hasn't really experienced anything obviously supernatural like myself. I can't be a full believer unless I see it. Anyone willing to convince me?

Default Me.

Never had anything significant-Earlier this year i had a dream and could have sworn I hear the word "eight" spoken into my ear and even posted about it but nothing came of it and it was probably not real.

When my uncle died in August that was his last word. A coincidence, but interesting.

It seems logical to assume that not too many non-believers would be posting in this forum.

That made me laugh.

You know, thought, that sometimes people who think that we're all delusional drop in just to set us straight. You should know; you probably have to delete some of the posts.

I'm 27 and I have never had any kind of supernatural experience. Honestly, I don't believe a lot of what these people post about are supernatural but it's fun to read all the same.

Aside from a tiny little bit of stupid ESP I have had nothing happen to me. I do have a couple of UFO's but in my world that means unfinished object.... quilting wise.

And I do think there is something out there, but just like some people are very sensitive to it, others are the exact opposite. That's me. I very probably will never have anything happen to me.
