    Default Do you believe in the Spirit World? (gender specific improvement)

    Some weeks ago I created a poll about belief in the spirit world

    For the sake of argument this would be a world separate from or parallel to our own world and which is inhabited by spirits of former humans, or by spirits that were never human but exist in dimensions separate from ours.

    I'll do a better poll when I get back from my hols instead.

    I neither tend towards yes or no..........I'm a spiritual agnostic with a sister and cousin who are believers. Neither of them tend to gullibility or irrationality, so I'm not prepared to dismiss the idea out of hand, although I haven't found any medium to date who has convinced me.
    Here is the new improved poll I promised back then.

    You didn't include hermaphrodites, try again.

    There are 'male' and 'female' options, but there is no option for the 'deluded'.

    No i dont agree,

    For the mere fact that people who believe/know or want their to be a "spirit world" each have their own opinion as to what it is or who or what inhabit it. or indeed as to wether its the same as our world. No one agreeswith each other!!

    And i reckon a poll as to wether other people believe in your personal idea of "spirit world" is pointless as you havnt defined it properly. Also, the words spirit and world can mean many different things also.

    You will get better and more serious answers if you are more specific.

    Well there does seem to be a start of a gender specific trend.

    BURN HER!! BURN HER!!

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Maybe I've missed the point here - perhaps 'deluded' fits in under the umbrella definition of 'female'?

    Vous pensez tromper, duper!

    I'd have to assume that if any woman who takes up with you then she too, would be deluded, unless of course your misogynistic comments are kept solely for the female Orgers as you aren't man enough to say it to their faces. Assuming, again, that you are married or are in a relationship with a female. Or maybe you are proving to me and maybe several others that you only have a relationship with your hand. A close one at that. Maybe two relationships if you're ambidextrous!

    Is that a wee bit of indignation I detect ??.

    Ooh, we've got a lively one here! I think, perhaps, that your reply merely confirms my previous assertion. Only perhaps, mind.

    The initial data do indeed support our more diffident and unassuming member's hypothesis.

    Is 3of8 a woman? I hope not because her French is as bad as yours.

    I believe she is indeed une femme. More une femme dédaignée than une femme fatale, though...

    Ah, the joys of Babelfish.

    Which box do transgender people tick? Or do their views not count?

    Ok, subsequent posts suggest that your French is better than hers his, if only because you are better at gaining electronic help.

    Are the french more likely to believe in the spirit world then? Ot is it a universal gender thing?
