What I'm curious is.. for the people who have said "no" - what do you say to people you meet who have had paranormal experiences? Do you believe they are lying? And would so much material exist out there in libraries if it were all lies?
See, that's one reason why I do believe in ghosts...granted, yes, some of the stories I hear definitely sound so fake and you just know it's for attention and all that.

But can all accounts of paranormal encounters be wrong? At some point and time, I think someone had to experience something odd. I feel there's some truth there somewhere.

I dont believe on ghosts per se, but I believe that spirits exist once we are gone. Some may say they are the same thing, but to clarify, I think there can be the sense of someone who has passed on, and perhaps it infringes in some ways on our physical world, but not really as in haunted houses and such.
Hmmm...that's a really interesting way of looking at it. That makes sense.

Indeed they are. Such as your story (very freaky).

And since you speak of cemetaries, for the record, I will say this-while the idea of ghosts fascinates me, I have absolutely no desire to be in a cemetary, a morgue, or a funeral home late at night. Those are three areas that would creep me out to no end. I think it's the idea of zombies coming to life or something, you know, a whole "Night of the Living Dead" ordeal.

Yes, that's totally unlikely to happen, but let's face it, if you're in one of those three places late at night, especially if you're by yourself, your imagination's bound to go wild and you'll most likely wind up scaring the hell out of yourself.

The thing with funeral homes-I honestly don't know how a person can stand having their home right above an area where dead bodies are stored in coffins. Or how people can live near a cemetary. Halloween night's just gotta be a blast for the people living next to those places.

Yes, though more in the way Angela Harlem described, as sort of an infringement on the physical world. My friends in college and I used to go out at night to the old Civil War battlefields and graveyards in that area of Kentucky and had some bizarre experiences that I can find no rational explanation for.

For now, I personally dont.

LOL One time over the Titanic week me and my mum, just for the sake of it, went on the tour bus round to the old site where Titanic was built, and JUST for the fecking sake of it videoed it (though I was embarrassed cause I keep tinkin pple are lookin and going 'Look at 'em stupit eejit!' and so on, and so forth but, what the some of the old old old Designer buildings and some of the 'Seven Minute Man story and old 'Clocking In' wall and old gate where they walked through and stuff....but in actual fact the place never felt 'eerie' or anything and no ghosties where caught on camera.................

LOL we werent allowed out to walk about which was a pity cause I woulda liked to have nosied into the giant Grey designer building where Thomas Andrew worked.............

anyhow, no no experience or anything.....the only oddish thing we have come across was when mum discovered 6 really old (gosh - possibly early 40s) giant paintings and photos in the roofspace - esp an oval shaped painting of a handsome young man in like a red 'Cavalry' type uniform.....I wanted to keep IT, but she threw them all out.............even now Im unhappy she did that......................ah well........

still..............naaaaaah...its hard to know.....what is interesting is at the moment there is supposed to be an old Belfast Mill (Flaxworks) which is now a Printers somewhere thats haunted by a young girl who worked there 1915 or something and fell to her death and they have two cameras set up via live link and pple get to write in on any strange happenings...........have any of u heard of this........I know the link, thing is....I think its power of the image......its not clear image and perhaps some things look weird on how the light catches it or how its focused which I think make pple think they see/saw something........

You could go to these 'haunted' places and get nothing.........

I dunno, I just dunno.

My house was built in around 1912, and I'm convinced it's haunted. When I was 4, I was sitting on my seawall , just playing, when I turned & saw this woman all in white, and her hair/skin/face was white. I blinked, and she was gone.I know I was only 4, but I still think it was true. My friend and I were looking for something in the guest room when we saw the light switch(on the other side of the room) go down, and of course, the lights went off. I'm afraid to turn to the left when I'm in bed because I sense something behind me. When I'm alone in the house, and downstairs, I wil distinctly hear the floorboards upstairs creak, like someone is walking on them. Needless to say, I don't go upstairs until someone is home with me. My house is just plain scary, and I'm going to stop b/c I'm getting creeped out again.

I know these aren't exactly hauntings, but I still get scared in my house b/c of them.

Eventhough I do not believe in ghosts, I would pay good money to see one. That would change the way I see the world a whole lot.

*makes note to self not to read threads about ghosts late at nite all alone*

I'm not sure if I believe in ghosts or not, mainly because I've never seen one, but like Angela Harlem posted, I belive that spirits exhist, that we go on after our bodies are dead. While I've never seen a ghost or experienced one, I have had that feeling like you're not alone, or someone is watching you.

Interesting thread.

(and spooky stories)

While I had 2 unexplainable events so far I'm not sure about ghosts. Maybe if I'd seen or heard one...not that I have any extra desire for it.

Yes, of course, absolutely. It's weird to me that some people don't believe in them. It's kind of like, duh.
