    So my friend and I get into mini-arguments about spirits at times.
    I find it utterly silly that there is such a thing as a spirit.
    She, on the other hand, is a firm believer that spirits actually exist.
    (Claiming she got a picture of an "orb" or wutever)

    Enough about me, what do you believe?
    Is it a cultural thing if you believe in spirits?
    Is there another reason?
    Iunno, I'm just curious.

    *Edit* Added "Kinda" options cuz a lot of you seem to be leaning towards the kinda believing side.

    Real spirits only come in a bottle.

    I'm open to the possibility of spirits, though I would require 'proof' before I would subscribe to a belief in them.

    I'm open to it as well. I do however get into arguments with a friend who's into spirtualist stuff. Tarot Cards, Star signs etc. As I think they're all rubbish. If you have to look for ways it fits in with your life its NOT A PREDICTION!

    Same here. Until there is proof, I won't say anything about spirits. Although I lean more towards the 'there's no such thing as spirits' side.

    When you say proof, would that be the same proof needed for you to believe in Fairy's, god, the easter bunny and real magic? [​IMG]

    It definitely depends on what you mean by spirits. If you mean ghosts, or souls, or entities.. it depends. I voted yes because I feel the spirits of the departed can live on in the collective consciousness even after all memory of them has disintegrated from the living, but I don't believe in "ghosts" or "haunts".

    I don't know.

    As I get older, I'm finding it harder and harder to "believe" in anything anymore.
