The 2006 Baylor Survey of Religion found what it termed a “surprising level” of paranormal belief and experience, although “those beliefs and experiences tended to be confined to people outside traditional religion,” the report states. The survey was funded by the John Templeton Foundation and conducted by the Gallup Organization from October to December 2005. It found that more than half of those surveyed believe that dreams can foretell the future or reveal hidden truths, 37 percent believe that places can be haunted, about a quarter believe some UFOs are probably spaceships from other worlds and nearly one in five believe it is possible to communicate with the dead.
