Do blind people dream?

I just wonder. This maybe a stupid question. If a person is blind since birth, does he see people's faces in his dreams?

in my own opinion.... YES! BLind people dream dreams.... in psychology, we dream when we reach the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage, it would take 1-2 hours and it will start... we may not actually remember the whole dream but it's for sure we've expeience dreaming. some dreams we remember are those last that pop up in us... during early in the morning, most of it, when we are about to 'really' wake up. in that case, blind people are still people and thus they for sure experiance the same thing... but MAYBE, in a different way. it could be images they've created in their minds...and it is one of the good thing that is happening to them when "at least" in a dream, they "CAN SEE".

It's not a stupid question, it's probably one of the good questions I have read today. Blind people also has dreams, and can have dreams just like you and me who can see. But of course, their dream will be limited to what their mind can imagine. But I believe that once they are given their glorified body if they trust Christ, there will be no more blindness in them.
