[Error: unknown template qotd]Haha, I'm an asshole--I was going to put things like "other than the Big Bang?" or "well stuff like quarks" but I'm in too good of a mood to say that without explanation. So, honestly? No. I'm open to the idea of paranormality, but I've never seen or heard of or experienced a convincing case of it. And you'd think I would have, I'm paranoid like no other.

Alien life, for the time being, to me means things like molds and germs, things I think we might find on other planets. Some day technology may develop enough that we may find another inhabited (read: cultured) world, or their technology may advance enough to find us, but I don't think we've hit that mark yet, and I think that planet (or planets or system of, whathaveyou) is outside our solar system at the very very least. And what, Betelgeuse is the next closest star? Just kidding, I don't know why I keep thinking that, it's Alpha Centauri. Hurr.

Yetis and Nessies I find hard to believe in. And I never really thought about it before, but I suppose I shouldn't believe in ghosts and things anymore if I'm functionally atheist, right? Maybe, I dunno, since I'm technically agnostic.

I did hear some good ghost stories in Hawaii though, about these angry ghosts of warriors, I think, that appear as flames and march up and down the hills, and if you get in their way you are cursed and they will kill you. Hawaiian mythology is ridiculously interesting.

I think, overall, I'm more pulled in by stories of gods and idols and things rather than ghosts and such, but I'm more inclined to think of things along the lines of American Gods. If we dreamed them up, they exist to some extent, and I wonder if they really do exist.

But, for the time being, no, I haven't experienced anything paranormal I couldn't explain.
