Higher Education Does Not Remove a Belief in the Paranormal

Posted on September 6, 2007

Some skeptics say that it is mostly the ignorant and superstitious that believe in paranormal subjects like ghosts and hauntings. According to the Skeptical Inquirer magazine this simply isn’t true. They conducted a poll of college students and found that about 23% of freshman and 34% of seniors believed in the paranormal. It seems that highly educated people still believe in subjects like ghosts, witches, clairvoyance, hauntings, spiritual or psychic healing, and demons.

In 2001 Gallup conducted a nationwide poll that indicated younger people are more likely to believe in the supernatural than older ones. This would come as no surprise as younger children tend to believe in things like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. As children grow and learn they are, unfortunately, discouraged from exercising their imaginations and tend to believe less.
