    I don't believe in any aliens even though I know it's possible that there's life on other planets. And if they are advanced enough to come here, then there's no way we will ever be able to detect them.

    Ghosts, nope.

    Bigfoot, or even primate anywhere natural in North America...instant Nobel so what's stopping you? Even among known things like mountain lions in rural California, why is it that people see them all the time but my ranger friends who are out there all the time have never seen one ever? I think this alone explains the bigfoot phenomenon.

    Nah. I used to pray to all those critters (and more) in the moments before exams for which I had not prepared, and they never stepped in to save me. otoh maybe they were strict and their answer was always no, or maybe I didn't realize I had to bribe them. Anyway now if I find something fallen from a bookshelf, or hear a loud noise in the house at night, I don't blame anything but a really old house and a couple of mischievous (and supposedly domesticated) cats.

    Don’t be silly, ghosts, UFOs and bigfoot are just stupid superstitions.:p

    No, I don't believe in them outright for lack of proof, but believe they are possible, especially aliens.

    We developed on Earth. The galaxy is much to big to expect it could not have happened somewhere else too. The problem are distances. Using the Drake Equation there could be millions of planets with life, tens of thousands with civilizations, that we most likely won't ever know about.

    As far as ghosts, this seems to be a widespread human belief. I'm open to the possibility, but I'll need to see one before I can realistically judge.

    You should've included a god in your post. Such a deity has about the same level of evidence as a ghost or bigfoot.

    That would really get the debate sparking.

    Hahaha, that reminded me of Homer:

    Guns don't help against ghosts, Tech. Trust me. I have first hand experience of this.

    What are you talking about? There ain't the same level of evidence. A LOT of people have claimed to have taking photos of ghosts. Lots of folks claimed to have footage of Bigfoot. No one has claimed to have taking a picture of God.;)

    Still God exists because sports exist. I would bet there were no atheists in Seattle the moment Wilson released that Hail Mary pass to Kearse in OT of the NFC Championship game.;) If there were, they weren't NFL fans.:p

    I believe in extraterrestrial life, universe is far too big to not harbor life.

    I believe 99.99999% of UFO sightings are civilians catching glimpses of local countries' experimental aircraft, so technically, those are UFOs (Unidentified Flying Object).

    Bigfoot/Nessie/Champie/other cryptozoological stuff, eh, not so much. I'd love it if they were real, but no, I don't believe.

    Ghosts, maybe? I read a theory a friend put forth about ghosts/apparitions/poltergeist, that the phenomena could just be that occasionally someone kinda sorta sees something beyond our dimension level. With the whole multiverse theory and all that, I could believe that.

    I don't believe in any of that stuff.

    I do believe there's intelligent life elsewhere in our solar system, but we'll never make contact. Distances are too great and lifespans are too short for that to happen.
