  1. Casper the Friendly Ghost was created in the late 1930s by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo, and appears in thousands of cartoons. The fact that he is made up does not mean that all ghosts are necessarily figments of imagination.
    Casper the Friendly Ghost - Wikipedia
    Casper the Friendly Ghost is a fictional caricature of a ghost, drawing on information found in other accounts of ghosts and adding fictional elements to create an intentional fictional character. We do not know whether or not actual ghosts exist, but this is not evidence that they are imaginary.
  1. Brian Connors of Knocknasheega was created in the early 1900s by Herminie Templeton Kavanagh, and appears in short stories and a movie. The fact that he is made up does not mean that all leprechauns are necessarily figments of imagination.

Re: Easter Bunny, Leprechauns and Other Nonsense

Be aware that RAZD will not even denounce the existence of the Easter Bunny on the basis that it is an unevidenced human fictional construction. So hoping to embaress him into submission with talk of mere leprachauns is not going to get you anywhere.

Be specific. No evasion. No ambiguity. Bunny atheist. Bunny agnostic. Or Bunny believer.
I could give you my opinion, but it is only opinion, and not a conclusion based on facts.
I also see absolutely no reason to form a conclusion on this, and it should be no surprise to you, based on previous debates.
That's unreal. Damn hard to argue with someone so divorced from reality that they can't conclude the Easter Bunny doesn't really exist, or (maybe more likely) so slippery that they won't admit that there isn't one.
I shouldn't have stepped in here. I'm gone.
Cheers.

Amusingly bluegenes was shown to be a pseudoskeptic (as was straggles) on a previous thread, so this is no small surprise to any open minded skeptic.
It would be nice if you could provide a link to the previous thread so that we can check the veracity of your statement.
Cheers.
