You know no one can really explain why anyone believes what they do… But what about the people that have witness a demonic attack and lived through it… What about the people that have witness a vampire or a werewolf attacking a love one that gave his or her life so that the other can escape with their lives and body intact…. Now do these people deserve to be called liars or insane because of what a non-believer might think… Or should they just be put away for surviving a monsters attack… Now you say hey I want proof while this child watcheses his or her mother or father being ripped apart by a beast that should not exist because you say so…… Well the truth is out there and you don’t have to go into space to find it…. And if you really want proof try the freedom of information act and read about what our Government really says about the reality of the existences of werewolves and vampires… And get ready to have your mind blown away………………
How do millions of people blindly follow religion? It’s the same concept. Faith perhaps or just stupidity. Ok sure there is a bible supposedly written account of the life of Jesus. That doesn’t make it true. People believe different things because they are brainwashed that is what they are to believe.
Basically the same way people believe in religion: Because they want to. They are misguided either by their own desire to see things or believe in things that are supernatural (they feel lonely, want to feel special, etc.), or they were brought up and raised that way and they think that their parents would never tell them anything that isn’t true. Usually parents just want to teach their children what they believe, not to do any harm but to “save” them, as with religion.
It’s a matter of psychology.
Okay, there’s no evidence. But what’s the harm in believing?
There is somethings in this world we just can’t explain, and if every one would think like you, we’d never really know if ghosts exists or not.
Maybe one day we’ll find proof, and until that day, I’ll just have my own beliefs and opinions about it.
