Same. To be fair though, I've had my fair share of 'experiences', be they irrational panic attacks, seeings things like a giant black snake coming out of a ceiling vent when starting awake, etc--I can understand how suspicious people may see these things as otherworldly. The brain is a tricky thing.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

You must be an American? LOL... there's no such thing as a koala "bear". They're marsupials, like kangaroos and wallabies, wombats and bandicoots.

But no... the entire concept of ghosts is laughable. No

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

No. I think WAY more people lie about/exaggerate their ghost stories than will ever admit it. Im sure plenty of people flat out lie about it. Others may have experienced something strange and got so worked up about it they built it up in their heads unintentionally. Others probably deliberately exaggerate what happened to them. Just dont make sense to me but i suppose its about as possible as the idea of god in my mind

We all know the koalas aren't actually bears. It's just a linguistic holdover from when we were dumber and thought they were, correcting this point is a bit much. It's just a name. Like how a bull elephant is not thought to be a bull and an elephant, and how nobody things leopard seals are among the fastest creatures on land.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: Ghosts!!!
I'd like anyone who believes in them to define what one is, and how I could identify it if it was in front of me.

Unexplained means just what it says, it's not a free pass to make up explanations. Some people are extremely uncomfortable with not having explanations and so tend to gap-fill.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Well, Jerry obviously doesn't. Big Grin

And did you know there's no such thing as an American buffalo? They're actually misnamed bison. But then Americans also call deep-fried chicken portions "buffalo wings".

RE: Ghosts!!!
What's the difference between a buffalo and a bison?

You can't wash your hands in a buffalo.

What do you mean Life is short. It's the longest thing you're going to do.

Ghost bacteria? I mean, I'd hate to be a ghost with really messed up GI issues because I don't have any bacteria in my gut.

No.

My wife's mother used to see strange people and animals in her house with some frequency. However, she suffered from chronic insomnia and was paranoid as well.

After she died and her granddaughter bought the house, all the ghosts suddenly disappeared.
