Why or why not?
I dunno, sort of.... To explain why would be to explain my entire view on reality and why I believe in everything...
Yes for both.
They're as Real as you or me...
Why? They do not exist is why.
you can do it! i believe in you!
i personally believe in spirits but im not sure about ghosts. and when i say "spirits" im sure it means a different thing then some people would think of spirits to be...
what do you mean by spirits?
the soul... etc., i personally believe that energy never really leaves so that's how i think of spirit but of course, it could, i believe, have many definitions.
I'm neutral on the subject.
Please define terms:
Notions of 'spirt', 'ghost', 'energy', 'believe'.
Could you tell us what is meant by:
"Please" "define" "terms"
spirit- that there is something that exists seperate from the human body that can exist without a physical body
ghost- however you define it... typically someone that is dead that can be seen by the living
energy- the scientific definition- "cannot be destroyed...."
believe- um, believe
In my opinion, the notions being used in the discussion are not defined well enough to refine and increase collective agreement.
The definitions do not have to be 'true' (not possible anyway), but they should be uniformly accepted by those engaged in the discussion.....unless of course, their is no purpose to the discussion....in the latter case, nothing needs to 'mean' anything.
Don't you think so?
I like Spinor
Good beginning....you see....simply by taking the time to construct some definitions (good or bad), you have identified perhaps the most difficult notion of this bunch.....'believe'......this magnificient source of paradox and problematic epistemological issues.
Obviously an educated man.
yet to be determined
i watched my daughter being pinched, freaked out and knocked over by something. i prefer to think it was a ghost than some neurological problem. though i had her checked anyway. so, i guess i believe in something.
