Spooks and Psychics

Published Date: 
October 28, 2006

According to an article in today's "Knoxville News Sentinel," 73 percent of Americans believe in some form of paranormal experience. These beliefs include extrasensory perception (41%), haunted houses (37%), ghosts (32%), telepathy (31%), and clairvoyance (26%). The Gallop Poll that came up with these figures also found that Christians (75%) were more likely to believe in the paranormal than non-Christians (66%). Now, is this because many Christians take the evil spirits of the Bible literally and somehow transfer that to psychics? After all, if evil spirits are real then some of these psychics are probably connected to such spirits. Or, is it because part of the poll was taken on a Wednesday night when most the serious Christians were in church? Or, is it because Christians are just more gullible than non-Christians? I will leave it up to you do decide.
