can you believe in spirits if you're not religious?

I'm atheist but I believe that peoples spirits can live on earth after they have died. (ghosts) I'm not sure if that's right :/

You can believe anything. No matter how far fetched it is. I think that has been very well demonstrated by people all throughout history and in the present day.

Even if you don't believe in a higher power, you can believe that each of us has a certain essence, spirit if you will, that makes us who we are. And I believe that when the physical body dies, that essence has to go somewhere... I don't think that it is possible for it to simply disappear as if it never was.

I kind of agree with you on that.

neodarwinian, you have serious issues. And the term is proselytized. If you're going to be ignorant, at least spell things right. Your comment is so far off the mark that it truly makes me concerned as to your mental stability.

No religion needed to believe that the spirits of dead folks are hanging around cemetaries, battlefields, houses, ect. they do exist religion or not.

You can believe in anything you want whether you're "religious" or not. In some cases you could be wrong but you are on fact free to believe what you want.

You can believe in anything you want. You don't have to classify yourself as religious/not religious.

Many people have experienced things unseen or witnessed Angels with their bare eyes. People can choose to not believe in them but it doesn't make them not real.

Sure, the definition of the term "Atheist" is you don't believe in a God or Gods.

Atheist:" a person who definitely asserts that all the thousands or tens of thousands of god(s), goddess(es), ghosts, demons, Satans, angels, etc. do not exist. The concept of such deities and semi-deities are all created by humans.

aww, youre so close! actually know thats not an atheist. an atheist does not assert, we simply lack the belief. and you really only put ghosts in there to make with your argument. i mean dude, ghosts have nothing at all to do with any of that

I can only tell you what the Bible says that the invisible dimension exists and those who inhabit it are either good or evil and can make themselves visible at will. There are lots of stories so you have to decide for yourself what to believe.

yes, of course you can. heres the definition of an atheist, and most people get it wrong, too. atheist: "one who lacks belief, or carries an absence of belief, in at least one god." its says nothing about demons, angels, ghosts, and the whatnot. it only include dieties, or moreover higher powers. demons and angels are not higher powers, theyre just... well, i dont know what they are but i do know what they arent. but yes you can believe in spirits if youre not religious. if youre an atheist feel free to believe however you want

I am no expert on atheism, but I thought an atheist is a person that does not believe in God. That has nothing to do with spirits, does it? Just because one doesn't believe in a Supreme Being, God, would not influence if one believes in spirits living after death.

Typically an atheist does not acknowledge an afterlife. If they do, it them becomes a religion, or the atheist is not truly an atheist. I am fine either way you choose, I am not judging you, just providing my perspective. If you want to consider yourself an atheist, but believe in some form of a spirit life, that is gone with me, I just don't see it. God bless

I believe we're never really sure of anything, though the idea of ghosts and spirits may sound amazing if they do exist. we never really know. But then again, there is air and we can't see it but we know it is real.

We believe whatever we want to believe.

I think it's best to just listen to what best resonates inside you. I don't consider myself to be "religious" but instead, to be spiritual. I believe in spirits, as I am a Wiccan by belief, and a metaphysical practitioner, but I do not limit myself to the belief that one religion has to be the one you follow, or even that you have to have a "title" for what you believe in. If it makes sense to you, then it simply is. So you could just refer to yourself as being spiritual, but not following any specific set religion, and you happen to believe in spirits.
Hope that helps.

If your religious like I am and read the scriptures you'd see no soul or spirits live on after a person dies. As for spirits in general God is a spirit person, Jesus too and the angels hope this helped

They do happen to be spirits out there. The body may died but the soul still remains.
