I'm agnostic- which is sort of ...half way there, but have sometimes thought that there may indeed be the possibility of "ghosts," or rather some sort of physical manifestation of what we call the soul. That said, I haven't necessarily considered that they have anything to do with each other- God (if he exists) and ghosts, (or spirits, or the soul.) I think of them as two separate possibilities. In my mind, both may exist- either in relation to each other, or not, or maybe only one of them, or maybe neither.

Well, that's in a nutshell, anyway.

Edit. lol. I see that Daemon basically said the same thing.


Yes, but how? How does a soul exist without a creator?


Just to play devils advocate, how can a creator exist without the soul?



the idea of non physical entities is based upon hyperdimentional physics
that dosent speak about God in and of it's self. the messages of these
beings and the legacy of the monotheistic creator are circumstantial evidence
of a kind , the fact that there are hyperdimentional entities demands
further study, too each their own path of learning

:hiho:

Quite a few people have those kind of experiences, that is usually the nature of this phenomena, which is why it is nigh on impossible to convince & sceptic.

I have has a few of those types of astral experiences (I wouldn't call them dreams) & talked to my Gran & Grandad, and also some one I knew at college who died from injuries sustained in a fire.

Thanks guest for bumping this unusual thread.
Allow me to disagree.
:cheers:

I believe the soul is your physical body and your spirit within it makes you human. An individual.

As for the atheist question...
An atheist doesn't believe in a god or gods. Beyond that, they can believe what ever they, as people, want to.

Yes Spock but when you are under the anesthetic you seem to wake up in milliseconds and discover you have been sleeping for hours... maybe the 'nothingess' speeds up time, ie, we could die and the nothingness may never materialise because it is endless and yet goes by very quickly, but then again, if we never awaken we would never know... quite interesting when you think about the myriad possibilities.

Troll? what was scary in that video? it was gas after the lady went to the toilet, obviously what you captured was a fart or swamp gass as the sceptics would say.... lol


no, seriously though, what was scary? The worm thing that floats past? Looks like a camera glitch to me or you captured some light anomaly perhaps, I can't explain it but it doesnt look scary (if that is the scary bit).. or is it the lady going to the bathroom? Is she alive or a ghost?


:headscratch:

God did say not throw pearl to swine for good reason, it is unreasonable if you are sane and well balance. An atheist by implication defers to one that believes anything is possible, all is random, so why not ghost, which are, but can know safe those who do know it. It is similar to asking have you UFO looking extra-terrestrial?
