VSPI participated at the 2014 Car Free Vancouver: West End Festival on Sunday, June 15, 2014. We were excited and met people of all beliefs.
Some people took the time to answer a few questions on our survey, and we thank them for that! We thought we'd share the survey results with you in two forms: 'Overall' results, and 'Age Group' results. The results were extremely interesting to us, and we hope to you as well.
So here we go: 55 People were polled.
Result One - Overall:
Results Two - Age Group:
Ghosts: As you can see, the youngest group is 100% open to Ghosts (spirit activity etc), while the oldest group is 100% non-believers. Interesting to note is the 35-49 Age Group at 93% "Yes".
UFOs: When it comes to the Alien discussion, the 20-34 age group is the strongest in their beliefs for the possibility @ 80%, while again the oldest group is 100% non-believers.
Cryptozoology: This is most interesting, as the subject is open to a variety of creatures/monsters believed to walk our earth. Again the youngest group is the strongest in their "Yes" beliefs, with the middle age groups not far behind, and the oldest is positive in their beliefs that these creatures do not exist.
It opens up discussion as to how open minded we all are. Does it depend on our upbringing? Is news of our day a factor? It appears more believe than are non-believers. Is this a trend due to television programming, the increase of sightings, and interest in pursuing the truth? Or is this simply something instilled in how we think from childhood on? Are more parents encouraging open minded thinking today than they did over 66+ years ago?

Something to think about indeed, and discuss with others.
As paranormal investigators our position is to look for evidence; but I'd like to add, VSPI is open minded in our thinking.
