Some paranormal fun facts for Halloween season

by Tommy Fox

FULL STORY: Halloween season sure manages to bring out our PARANORMAL GULLIBILITY. That's not a real phrase, but it should be. Here are some results from a brand new survey on ghosts, aliens, and more . . .

57% of Americans say they believe in ghosts. Only 21% say they absolutely believe there AREN'T ghosts . . . and the rest aren't sure. Which means four out of five Americans aren't ruling out the idea that ghosts are real.

The ghost people would most want to be HAUNTED by is . . . the ghost of ABRAHAM LINCOLN. The second pick was MARILYN MONROE.

If YOU could visit someone after you die, 28% would check in on a family member, and 22% would take the opportunity to HAUNT an ex. Which is kinda funny, actually. Only 24% of people who believe in ghosts say they're afraid of ghosts.

47% of Americans believe ALIENS are out there. Men are more likely than women to believe in aliens . . . women are more likely to believe in ghosts.

43% of Americans believe in reincarnation. Of that group, 18% believe they were an animal in a past life, and 12% of men and 3% of women believe they were a political figure.

13% of men and 6% of women believe they were a criminal . . . and 7% of men and 11% of women believe they were artists or entertainers.
