Paranormal Activity: What Are Your Beliefs?

September 7, 2011

Here’s an interesting piece of information if you haven’t read it before. According to a 2005 Gallup Poll, the percentage of Americans who believe in the paranormal has increased since they last surveyed the population in 2001. I wonder what it would show now?

Here are the categories they used:

  • ESP
  • Haunted houses
  • Ghosts
  • Telepathy
  • Predicting the future
  • Astrology
  • Communications with the dead
  • Witches
  • Reincarnation
  • Channeling

The thing is, not everybody agrees on this list. In fact, many people broadly define the paranormal as anything science can’t explain including UFOs and Big Foot. Even so, the Gallup poll showed that 37% of the people surveyed thought houses could be haunted, 41% believed in some form of ESP, and 3 out of 4 believed in at least one of the items on the above list.

How would you vote if you were surveyed?
