Do you believe in aliens (Otherworldly intelligent beings)
Yes, I have met them/talked to them
Yes, but I have never experienced them firsthand
No, that's rediculous.. aliens could never make it to Earth.. the universe is simply too big
No, aliens don't exist... we are alone in this Universe (with 60 billion stars in the milky way and billions of galaxies :wink:)

Cool :cool: I tried to make it as clear-cut as possible... I just wanted to get an overall idea of the general beliefs of the people who visit here. Someone suggested a while back for an S&P belief demographic..so this is my way of starting it off. I also have some follow-up polls and questions once these have been voted on a significant amount of times.

What about "I don't particularly want to believe either way, and don't feel that proof can be provided either way."

I'm going to have to point out, that other than the evolution one, none of these polls have options that accompany my opinion.

For poll 1:

I don't believe in God, the only thing I'm sure of is that there is no way to prove anything. It could all be an illusion, any magical spiritual moments you may have had could have easily been moments of delusion.

Poll 2:

Nobody seems to have clearly defined what a human soul is. People often say "It's that special thing that makes you you"
"My personality?"
"No! It's different from that..."
Some people say it's a force that makes up your conciousness, and is separate from your body. Well, since nobody knows how the fuck conciousness works, it would be pretty fucking retarded to make a call on that one, wouldn't it?

Poll 3:

I don't believe in either, but there's always a possibility. There is no way of knowing what happens after you die, until you die, and even then you can't be so sure.

Poll 4:

Aliens might exist. There's a pretty good chance that they're out there, I doubt they look like the "greys", which, by the way, appeared on an ancient episode of the Outer Limits just a week before the first reported sighting of one. Before that, it was all little green men from mars. If there are other forms of life out there, which is fairly likely, it's pretty unlikely that they are visiting us. There is a absolutely no solid evidence to back this up.

Poll 5:

I don't think there is a meaning of life, I could be wrong, but I think you should go ahead and make up your own meaning.

Poll 6:

Hrmm... a well developed scientific theory regarding the origins of life... or a magical man in the sky making us appear out of nowhere... which makes more sense... I'll have to get back to you on this one.

In my opinion, the soul is the same thing as a star. It is light (which is also what we label "love), it is what we revolve around. What is called the "human soul", which is light that has taken form. It is not restricted to human form, of course.

It could be called the Source, too. I think that's a better name. :smile:

A poll proves what the people who voted currently believe.
