    Parallel Universes... I don't know. Possibly. I have some theories on that one. I do believe in some sort of circle in life. I think I have known people, that I know now, before. Different place, different time, and we keep finding each other. I once had a person tell me that everyone who means something to you now, has meant something to you before. I completely understood it and agreed. I've had some incredibly intense connections with people that could be defined as "unexplainable".

    Aliens... Yes! I think it's silly to believe that we are the only ones floating around out here.

    Psychics... With out a doubt. I believe people have gifts. That's a topic that is not taboo where I am from. Someone saying, "My granny had the gift" does not even get a first or second strange look. I think gifts differ with people. I believe in mediums. I believe some are telepathic. I believe some have premonitions, and predictions. I more than believe it.

    Me, I happen to appreciate the off beat things in life.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    I don't think aliens are at all offbeat. I have no doubt that at least a few million of the billions of planets out there have life on them.

    As for the other things, even tho I haven't experienced them doesn't mean they aren't real.

    Well, I wouldn't say it's a belief. Aliens either exist or they don't. I would say their existence is possible, but contacting or visiting them is less likely. I have little doubt that all those alien abduction stories and crop circles we hear about are bogus.

    As for parallel universes, I know physicists work with the multiverse theory, but the concept befuddles me.

    There are mentalists and charlatans who do a great job of fooling people into thinking they are psychic, but that's about it.

    I think thats more of a do you believe they exist? As opposed to a belief ;)

    This is precisely what's meant as "beliefs." Some ppl strongly believe these things exist...it's more than an opinion. In their mind, it's the truth. But these things may or may not be certain, concrete, absolute metaphysical truths. They aren't laws or established facts bc they cannot be proven or disproven (not yet, at least).

    Personally, I have no idea about parallel universes or aliens. But yes, I believe some ppl possess certain intuitive gifts. And in addition, I think God speaks to some ppl more clearly than to others...or some ppl are more skilled at hearing him. And I think the devil works thru other ppl and gives them knowledge about things that they might not ordinarily have. Most of it is just charlatanism, tho IMO.

    PS- I also agree with this. What I am referring to is something different. No one is getting paid. I personally see a huge difference in someone with incredibly strong intuition, or perhaps someone who has the honest ability to a little use more than the standard 10% of their brain like most people, and fortune tellers, etc.

    I'll never forget going to 5 Points in Atlanta, with a co worker, when I was there for training. She wanted to talk with one of the fortune tellers. Me, I'll pass. She paid, and I chuckled the whole time she did her spill. When we left my co worker said, "I can't believe she knew, right off the bat, that I worked at a job in emergency services!" I told her that might be because she was wearing her 911 jacket. :-/

    Oh, TNB, when it comes to other things some may consider off beat, I have to say I adore where I live. Not only did I grow up with talk of gifts (intuition) but also occasionally hearing talk of "The Magic" from my Cherokee friends and family. Not everyone believes in it, but I have had the pleasure of meeting a few people who are said to have the magic. Those were some of the most memorable experiences of my life. I can't say if I do or do not believe in all of it, but I will say that anything is possible.

    I believe there could be life on other planets.

    As for the other stuff...

    Parallel universes? Does that mean there's another *ME* living on a duplicate Earth? No, that would be illogical.

    Psychics are frauds who just happen to have a gift for fooling people.

    I don't believe in ghosts or gods either. Also illogical.

    I believe there could be life on other planets.

    If a parallel universe is what RCW described, then no, I don't believe in that.

    I believe there are people who have psychic ability but they're not the ones charging money for readings.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    I believe in life on other planets. I think there are some legit psychics & mediums among the scammers. I don't see a reason for a parallel universe tho' I do believe there may be different dimensions.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    Speaking of parallel universes or Earths, the movie Another Earth is a good one to watch.

    I believe there is life on other planets. That just makes sense to me. "Life" on other planets might not fit our definition of what "life" is, but I think it's arrogant to assume that we're the only living beings out there.

    As for parallel universes, if it's possible, that would be very cool. I'd love, for example, to be able to live in London, Latin America and a couple of U.S. cities simultaneously, working at a variety of cool jobs, etc., etc. Perhaps that's not the same thing as a parallel universe. Parallel earths?

    As for psychics, I myself have had enough dreams that have come true, strong intuitive hits that turned out to be correct, etc., that I do believe that some people have psychic gifts. Are there scammers and con artists out there though, taking advantage of people? Absolutely.

    But actually, I think we all have the ability/intuitive sense to some degree or another. For me, it's like fiddling with a radio dial. Sometimes the reception comes in more clearly than others.

    I believe something, not sure that I could vocalize it.

    I tried to read a book called Hyperspace, written by a physicist about there being ten dimensions. Customer Image Gallery for Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimens ion I wanted to try to understand the math to it, so it took me forever to get as far as i did. Now the book is sitting in storage.

    I believe there are life on other planets. The universe is infinite how can there not be? How can we be the only life out of a gabillion galaxies? I think we may be the only life in our galaxy though.

    As far as ghost, we are energy, and energy can never be destroyed even when our physical body dies, our energy is still there. I think if the energy is strong enough we can experience things we call "ghost" or else i am crazy and should be committed. The ish I have witnessed is scary as hell and if it was all in my head, HOLY CRAP!!! :confused2:

    There's been a few. but the recent ones happened in my dorm room in college. The first incident occur when I was at my desk and my roommate was standing there and we were chatting. My desk was right near the door. as we were talking we both heard the door knob ratttle as if soemone was trying to come in. We looked and could see the door knob turning and the door move as if someone was trying to come in. We thought some drunk student came to the wrong room. So I swug open the door. No one was there. There was no where for anyone to hide because it was just a long hallway in both directions. we just thought we were tired from studying. the next incident happened when we were watching tv and an empty soda can across the room ( away from both of us) Went across the room as if someone had thrown it. I picked up the can and it looked like someone had crushed it. no way it could had happened just hitting the wall and floor. The next incident was once again we were watching tv. there was a pair of headphones on a table. my roomie's back was to the table but they were right near her head and i was facing it. while watching tv, i saw out of the corner of my eye, the earphones moving. I didnt move my head, just my eyes, and i saw them rise up like someone was picking them up. I jumped up immidently and they fell back to the table. I looked for anything that could had made the earphones move. she had heard the noise from the earphones moving, and thought i was grabbed for them and even felt a brush across her back as if i may had accidently touched her when getting them. The last incident was when i was sleep and i woke up to my blankets being pulled off me. I thought my roomate was doing it. until i realised i was alone in the room. I end up wrapping and tucking the blanket around me and sleeping in a ball in the corner of my bed. My roommate never stayed alone in the room.

    ^ I believe you.

    There have always been some strange things said about the 3 of the dorms in a near by college. I went to parties in all 3, years ago, and witnessed them.

    After one girl died in her room, from an asthma attack, the elevator often operates by itself. It will open up in the lobby, and then open up on the 3rd floor, which is where her room was. I've witnessed it numerous times.

    Another girl killed herself in the 2nd floor bathroom, of a different dorm, and she tries to hurt people. I walked into that bathroom and the stall door swung out at me, hard, like it was kicked. It just missed me, and no one was on the other side. That has happened several times. She also likes to turn on the faucets.

    When I was a child I walked to my friends landlords house, next door, to give them the rent check. It was just after dark, me and her, and we had to walk down a road a bit and cross a cattle bridge to get to the house. Her mom turned the porch lights on and when we got a few feet from her house we saw a shadow standing behind us while walking. It was a large man, and we could hear him breathing. We stopped, turned around, and no one was there. We turned back around, and the shadow was still there. Needless to say we ran back to her house screaming.

    I have many more stories like that
