    To inform the thread regarding Koan's reference to hoax photos, the pictures can be seen at http://www.randi.org/library/cottingley/index.html together with a little background information.

    Yeah, but it was made into an amazing movie

    Sorry, but this thread seems a tad derogatory

    I suppose if the concern is believing in the "energy" of fairies then I have to admit to a degree of belief. The image of fairies, however, is equivalent in my mind to picturing God as a white guy with a long beard sitting on a cloud in his throne.

    The hoax photo refered to was the Cottingley photo linked in spot's reply. (thanks). Of interest, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle investigated the photos and published them in Strand magazine, Christmas 1922, having become convinced that they were authentic.

    The Cottingley fairies are just how i always imagine fairies to look, small and delicate with gossamer wings, leaving a trail of fairy dust.

    No, I do not believe in fairies, but I too have seen several photos - they usually look like very small people, often dressed in white, and with wings, holding wands - at least that`s what I see after the 12th pint!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My concern is the lack of a basic decent attitude towards the beliefs of others within the "Modern and Aincient" paths forum..

    Who are we to judge those that do believe in them?
    Compared to the belief that some omnipresent, omnipotent being really created and rules mankind, I think its more believable that there may be some small folk with wings at the bottom of the garden

    I don't know if I believe or disbelieve but my father use to take me into the gardens and tell me stories about fairies so I believed whole-heartedly as a child. I even thought I saw a few. It wasn't until later that I began to doubt. I love the idea and I think it is special and will do the same with my own children. Fairies are fascinating to say the least!
