    Poverty of the imagination is what deprives us of understanding something that seems very complex. Of course, we must preserve humility in order to realise that our current knowledge is not adequate for us to comprehend certain concepts beyond our understanding. In the meanwhile, all we can do is attempt to progress this understanding and knowledge linearly, slowly and surely.

    Your friendly momok =)

    That is what I always thought.

    I hope there is more life in the universe. A lot of stuff that Sylvia woman said that comes on Montel on Wednsdays seems pretty true, but I am not some extremist. She said we'd see aliens in 2010, and that is what I am waiting on. I hope they're green! :p

    I don't believe in psychics, but that's not the point. She may have some good points that have nothing to do with her "work" .

    Woops I didn't explain it correctly. I don't believe in psychics either, but I HOPE she was right. But you see, if "aliens" did come, if they are more advanced, imagine what they could teach us if they didn't fry us and study us first ;).

    A little off-topic, does anyone else realise that when people "hear" loved ones that died, it is all in there head? My mom died when I was 4 due to lung cancer (no not smoking, she worked in to many enviromentally-unfriendly places) and neither me nor my dad hear her. Sorry, had to get that off my chest.

    Could just be your experience? My father was killed in a car accident when i was 14..and although i dont "hear" him..i feel there are signs of his presence.

    I used to think that people say they "hear", or "see" there lost ones..only to comfort themselves, but i feel alot different about it now that i have personally experienced it.

    Also, i think are image of aliens are are far off from what we expect. Probably even unconceivable to the human mind.

    mopar man, sorry to hear about your Mom. My Dad passed away a few years ago and, while I do not 'hear' him, I do occasionally feel as if he is looking out for me...

    My belief is that we are not alone even in our own galaxy. Of the 200 to 400 billion stars here in the Milky Way chances are fairly good that at least one of those stars harbors a planet that has the climate to support life.

    It would be exciting to have it proven without a doubt that alien races exist by having one of them visit us, peacefully of course. If they had evil intentions my feeling is that we wouldn't fare very well, mainly due to the fact that they have harnessed the energy for interplanetary travel.

    On the subject of spirits, I cannot say if they exist or not. I personally have never had an 'experience', so I feel that I can't form an opinion on this subject. It would be intruiging to see if the feeling of 'someone' being there with you is a construct of our memories of the person being felt through our subconsious or unconsious mind (no, I don't mean when you are knocked out) are infulencing our consious mind.

    Sorry for you losses twite and netcablesplus.

    I do not hear her or anything, as I said, but I do feel her in that way also. I was talking about the people that "hear his/her voice".

    nickslick74, same here with the alien. I believe it has to do with the memory of the person in your subconsious. I have always believed that your subconsious knows a LOT more than your consious does. I know a guy that swore up and down that the creators of the triple blade razor stole his idea. Yet, he got the idea AFTER they come out. He claims he thought of it while shaving, but if you think about it, he probably heard it on a commercial, while not really hearing it but his subconsious did. Understand?

    Have you guys seen the alien interview documentary? It can be found on youtube; its 7 parts/1 hour long. I find it very convincing, and I'd believe there is definitely intelligent life out there in the universe.

    I reckon everyone should believe in the supernatural world, be it religions, or just plain spirits.

    Lets say you don't believe in them nor keep them happy, and they exist: you die, and you piss all of them off, and your afterdeath is a horrible experience.

    Lets say you believe in them, and you keep them happy, and they don't eexist: you die, there is no such thing as spirits, and you DON'T become a spirit (because they don't exist), and therefore there is no such thing as an afterlife, and things will not be any different to you NOT believing in them in the first place.

    Indeed ...

    Although there is a difference in saying you "believe" in something.

    To say you believe in something can mean that this thing you believe in exists 100%, or you could also argue that to say you believe in something means you do not know if this thing you believe in exists (what the?) ...

    A childs mum believe's her son can win a running race. It doesn't necessarily make it true ... know what I mean?
    You could say that you believe what your friend did because you saw it, thus making it true.

    To say you believe in something which cannot be proved or dis-proved doesn't necessarily make the beleif true.
    All those who believe in this "God" thing say it like they know it exists ... when they don't.

    Aliens on the other hand make you think of what is required for the creation of life.
    God-people would have to say a supreme being of sorts (a God), whereas the realists would take the evolution path.

    I love the saying; "I don't know and neither do you". Pretty much sums up my thoughts on these kinds of subjects :D
