Thanks Terence.  I don't really see me becoming an Atheist any more then me becoming a Christian :)  LOL...

If anything, I am more leaning towards Pagan/Wiccan, but there to lacks lots of proof.  The subject that mostly irritated me about the comments the other night was how several people were so quick to put down others.  I tried to explain myself and they just kept getting meaner.

As a child I was forced into the Mormon Cult.  My family bought this house and I had to sleep in the basement.  I would see these apparitions and explain them to my parents. They of course would say they were Satan messengers and were there to test my faith.  This was a one time thing either.  The one set that I would see appeared to be old pilgrims, and they would knee in the corner and pray.  Granted myself and my two sisters felt other presents down there and they were not peaceful.  But the prilgrims were not bad, they needed help.  As I grew and got older I had other things happen.  But I quickly learned that what religion was telling me and what I was finding were two totally different things.  I do strongly believe in earth bound trapped spirits and people having energy.  And this energy sometimes get left behind.  That there are both good and bad spirits.  Does this make any sense or am I rambling to the wrong person again?

Sorry Terence, but I am thinking I joined the wrong group.  I was watching the chat on the main room and someone commented about believing in ghosts.  I commented that I believed in ghosts/aperitions/spirtits and several members got flat out ignorant about it.  My first thought was just to delete from this place, but then I thought I would wait to hear from people that have sent me messages.

Hi Terry, Thanks for the welcome! As to origins, since retiring, I've taken up an interest in the origin of the nearly universal human belief in invisible, intelligent agents. This seems to be one of a few things, like complex languages, that sharply distinguishes us from other apes. Of course. these peculiar beliefs also underlie most religions. Maybe you folks have a related discussion group.       Charlie

Appreciate the welcome. Is there a particular forum that shows upcoming meetings and events. I definitely want to get involved with open-minded people for intelligent discussion.
