Do Ghosts Really Exist?
#21
I think everyone here has to have some belief in the paranormal or they wouldn't be here, including me. I have experienced two separate things, one was a door handle shaking violently, I opened it and no one was there. Do I have an explanation? No

The other thing that happened was children laughing and playing at like 3:00 am I got up and actually went outside to look for them. I came back in the house and it started again. Do I know where the voices came from? No

The unknown is what attracts people to investigate and research.

Now I will add I think most claims are explainable. Its the small percent without answers that keeps us looking.

So would I call what I experienced ghosts? No I would call it paranormal for now.
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

show me yer proof

I never saw anyone claim that they had proof.

By the very definition of the word proof it would be impossible to prove anything that cant be measured, recorded, and poked. You cannot prove or disprove, God, ghosts, the existence of the soul, etc etc .One cannot even prove that dreams actually happen!

I never said they had proof, I said show me yer proof that Ghosts exist.
they said they do exist and they have encountered Ghosts, so I want to see the proof, it is no different than someone here telling me they want Proof Bigfoot exists.
However,I am not saying I saw Bigfoot, but many here have said they have seen ghosts,all I ask is, show me.

I have personally encountered "ghosts" myself. I have also had a lot of other strange experiences that made me wonder, but there were two different experiences I had that proved to me without any shadow of a doubt at all that ghosts are real. Can I prove that to anyone else? No, I cannot.

You could also try a fantasy suggestion:

Why don't you try this with your dream woman then if suggestion works so well. Try someone like say, Sophia Loren, or Catherine Zeta Jones and see if she appears before the night is up?

Now does this explain all paranormal? I don't think so but it explains most.

If people are told they are going to a haunted house, and a story of being touched or seeing a certain apparition in a certain area people will experience what you plant in their head.

This is what happens during Seances, Ouija board sessions, Ghost tours and so much more.

If you read about say example Moundsville prison, you will see where most of the deaths occurred, where previous ghost tours experienced activity. Now refresh your mind with an hour tour before you go ghost hunting. They tell you cells people have claimed to be touched in.

You listen to people and these are the areas they will have had the same experience. Its because the seed was planted.

This doesn't work on everyone as some minds are more skeptical. But if you aren't then chances are you will experience something.




All my life I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific...

haven't changed my mind sinc emy comment in Nov. 09. Of course they do, despite the bad form shown on reality tv that tries to find them. They are out during the day, been to a local cemetery during your lunch break lately and seen folks just reading the headstones, curious way to spend your lunch but folks do it, assuming all are made of flesh and blood. Easier to relax if one thinks who they see are all alive, doesn't it? Whether it's a 1 room shack or a castle in Europe, if you get "lucky", you might find one or one might find you.

During my investigations I try and research where we are going. There has been one or two times when someone said "Person died here" but my research using the library and local newspaper says nothing.

When I have others listen to EVP I don't tell them what I heard, its amazing when you see this on tv and they're blurting out "I heard X I heard X" and then all of a sudden everyone in the room can hear the same thing. During our EVP sessions my wife and I had its amazing how differently we hear EVPs.

Or, even when people bring psychics on shows how the standard disclaimer is "we told them nothing about this place" but then they go around saying, with a very important subject, 'How does this CHAIR make you feel?' and of course the person or something tragic happened on or near the chair. They should have some placebo type objects like 'Tell me about this clothes hamper' where nothing happened because it wasn't even there.

I am open to the possibility but do require quantative evidence to prove so.

i kind of agree with the original experiment poseted, i feel if a group of people put enough postive energy into something itll become real, the other way around too. put enough negative energy into something it becomes real like a poltergiest. i feel ghost do exists, something has too. i also think that every one could possibly see ghost, spirits, angels, or demons. we might not understand enough to actually see it and take it as supernatural or something not human

Of course they do and thankfullly I don't need equippment, scientific, or not to effect a changed in my belief system.I enjoy discussing the "what ifs" but when one tries to change my beliefs to theirs, by intimidation well, the conversation will end.Matter of "faith", either you believe or not.
