The Paranormal Profiles: New Study Probes Into People Who Believe in Ghosts


MONTREAL, Oct. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Halloween is the perfect excuse for adults to broaden their imaginations and entertain the improbable, the mysterious, and the unknown, and become someone or something else (well, Halloween and Comic Con). Suddenly, undead creatures and phantoms come crawling out of the darkness. Zombies, witches, and vampires come to life. For some people, however, the world of the paranormal isn't one of imagination and fiction. In a newly released study conducted by the researchers at Queendom.com, certain people take the supernatural very seriously.

Researchers examined data collected from 13,940 people who believe ghosts. It turns out that their beliefs extend far beyond the supernatural. According to Queendom's study, here's what else they believe in:

DESTINY/FATE

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

PARANORMAL/ PSYCHIC PHENOMENA

EXTRATERRESTRIALS

Interestingly, not many believers nor non-believers in ghosts entertain superstitious beliefs. Among the list of superstitions, fear of negative thoughts causing a tragedy, and a fear of "jinxing" something were the most common. Those who do not believe in the existence of ghosts were dismissive of most other paranormal and supernatural phenomena, with the exception of a marginal belief in God (35%), karma (32%), miracles (31%) and, most prominently, life on other planets (45%).

"Many people have an inexplicable draw to the paranormal," explains Dr. Jerabek, president of PsychTests, the parent company of Queendom. "The idea that everything is energy, and thus can be influenced by intention or thought, is deeply compelling. Faith in reincarnation helps us come to terms with our own mortality and fear of death. Belief in cosmic interconnectedness helps us feel less lonely. When we contemplate the vastness of our universe, it seems mathematically improbable that we are the only sentient beings that exist in the universe. The fact is, as we begin to explore the world beyond our own, whether it's with space shuttles into other galaxies or EVP recorders in a haunted building, we pave the way for new discoveries. Some people may think it foolish to entertain the prospect of aliens or ghosts, but consider this: Space flight was considered impossible. The existence of black holes was only a theory. Komodo Dragons, Goblin Sharks, and Giant Squids were thought to be fictional creatures. Things that once appeared impossible no longer seem farfetched. What we know is just the tip of the iceberg of the vast wisdom available to us ... all we need to do is use science to search for the truth, keep an open mind, refuse to accept dogma of any kind ... and maybe, just maybe, have a little faith."
