I'm very interested in spirits(mostly non human), magic, and cryptozoology. I don't take anything as fact though. As Nubly said there are a lot of fakes out there and people who are just mistaken. I even have doubts about experiences I've had. I like to think that at least a few of the vast number of witness accounts have to be true, but I still have doubts on that. Either way it is an interesting subject and I like to read old tales about faeries, kitsune, etc.
I don't believe in it. Take ghost as an example. All they do is make noise that you can barely hear rather than shouting in your face and they never show themselves even though they supposedly want you out of the house so badly. If ghost were real they'd come to you and say "Hey man. I was brutally murdered here and I don't want you here. Now get out before I hurt you". But instead all we get are noises that sound vaguely like threats and items that the wind probably knocked over.
I am shatingly scared of them! I think I àctually have a phobia cause if I wake up at night which is like every night, I need the tv on or a movie playing on my laptop for me to go back to sleep because it just relaxes me again. I can't sleep if its quiet with no noise unless I'm with someone because I just get scared and don't close my eyes, I don't know why! I'm just messed in the head. But this is only during the night, I can sleep with no noise during the day, I've watched too many movies! NOO!!
