Thanks for sharing. I appreciate the input.
Almost nobody knows what they are talking about. Even people who have extensively studied the subject usually have only studied crap made up by somebody else. Then you meet somebody from Haiti or someplace where it's normal to see shadow people walking on the road in the evening.
Yeah, not in this life, but I believed in a previous life.
I don't think it's really possible, but I don't think they're hallucinating or are mentally ill. There's things that can happen that have no explanation - and it's not unusual for people to get their own theory on it.
I think there's a lot we don't know.
When someone tells me of some supernatural experience they've had I don't automatically assume the person is mentally ill and/or hallucinating. Then again, I don't usually talk to such people long enough to make an educated guess.
