Since it's Halloween time I thought this would be appropriate.

I would say yes, even though I haven't had a big personal experience. It has been a phenomenon for thousands of years, almost every country and/or civilization has some sort of belief in them; and there has been authentic evidence towards the paranormal -- people just refuse to believe it.

Your thoughts?

Edit: Poll is now up!

I don't believe in ghosts... but that's not to say I haven't felt a weird sensation when wandering around Riverview Hospital at night.

Had my roommate hang himself years ago, and I stayed living in the house for roughly 4 years. Saw some really weird things happen and some that can only be explained by his ghost, or whatever you want to call it, still being in the house.

Who said ghosts are just there to scare us or that they're supposed to get revenge of those who killed them/hurt them?

Who said ghosts can't just be nice things that float around afterthey die like some sort of afterlife?

People are scared of what happens when they die so they create fictional entities to make death more manageable or not so absolute.

It ranks right up there with aliens visiting us, bigfoot, loch ness, and so on, of ridiculous claims consistently made that rely entirely on word of mouth or social "experience" to stay afloat, completely lacking proof obviously, but the ghost thing has much more of a cult following.

Death is scary but I have far too much respect for myself than to feed myself this fiction to cope with the fact that I'm going to die and I have no idea what happens when I do. I just keep it in the realm of fun fiction, it seems more useful that way.

I used to believe in them when I was a kid, before I realized how fallible anecdotal experience can be.

This thread needs a poll.


As to OP question - I don't discount the possibility of ghosts, but I've never had (or even heard of) any experience that couldn't also be explained by leaky pipes or someone doing too much acid; does this mean ghosts don't exist? Absolutely not, like I said, I don't discount the possibility... still, like I also said, I've never heard of anything that doesn't have an alternate explanation .

Personally, I think your question would be best answered by an anthropologist.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio than are dreamt of in your philosophy....

I'm open minded if they exist. I'd like to see a haunting that is consistent that replicates itself. But perhaps spirits are of a type of energy that's not natural to our universe, and our normal laws of physics bend about them. After all we have string theory posing multiple dimensions, anything is possible.

This footage, if it's faked someone took a lot of time and effort and choreography to fake it.

You don't want to walk around the house with the lights off, calling out for ghosts, then here a floorboard creak then piss themselves, tripping over their own feet trying to get out of the house?!?

You think if ghosts were real and these guys were actual 'experts', they wouldn't run away at the first sign of something abnormal. That's what always annoyed me about these shows.

One time at night, I thought I saw the figure of a child (around 7 years old) underneath the dining room table. I was sitting on the floor and it was around 3am (I do weird things :lol:). I was 99% sure that it was just my eyes playing tricks on me since it was dark so I just sat there and stared at it for a few mins. I was about 2 feet away from it. I ended up just turning around and going back to what I was doing.

I've also had those experiences where you hear a really loud noise in the middle of the night. It's usually as if something heavy fell onto the carpet. It happened a few times this past summer and there was a crashing noise at one of my friend's house.

I dont believe in ghosts but I also cant deny it. It's like being agnostic... lol.
