Who are we to say what is real or not when tons of people all over the world claim to have paranormal experiences. When all across the cultures, there are legends/myths of a sort of supernatural being.

My opinion is that we as humans, will never find out or agree if ghosts are real but for myself, I chose to believe in it. Because, many people have had their own sort of paranormal experiences and we can't shove them aside and say that they are lying because we don't want to believe in it.

Who are we to say what is real or not when tons of people all over the world claim to have paranormal experiences.

It is true it is safer not to speak in definite terms when it comes to the nonexistence of something. But considering none of these experiences have ever been recreated a controlled setting and in fact do not usually stand up to critical scrutiny, and there is a more probable, rational explanation for the human tendency to see ghosts, it puzzles me why people would not choose to err on the side of logic.

When all across the cultures, there are legends/myths of a sort of supernatural being.

These cultures all have very different ideas of what ghosts are, how they come into being, what they look like and what they are capable of. The fact that almost everything about ghosts is incredibly subjective based on geography seems like pretty good evidence to their nonexistence.

Because, many people have had their own sort of paranormal experiences and we can't shove them aside and say that they are lying because we don't want to believe in it.

Humans have naturally suspicious minds. We retain the tendency to see something where there is nothing, because that is safer than seeing nothing where there is something. Plenty of these people genuinely believe they had a paranormal experience, but in reality, they were influenced by fear, the power of suggestion, or groupthink. It is very possible for the memories of your own experiences to be very distorted without you realizing it. It doesn't mean everyone who claims to have a paranormal experience is crazy or a liar, it means they have an average brain with an overactive imagination.

Also, yes, lots of them are probably lying. Do not lose sight of the fact that every single one of these experiences is secondhand; they are quite likely to be omitting or embellishing, purposefully or not. Take the story of a slightly creepy coincidence, pass it through a couple of superstitious people who love a good scare, and you have a fantastic ghost story.

They may have different ideas of what ghosts are but the point is they still have stories of something supernatural. One or two may just a coincidence but if many of them have it, don't you think that there is something more to it?

My family and very close friends have told me that they have had supernatural experiences and I know they wouldn't lie or make up random stories. So that also adds to my belief even though it is not the big reason why I believe in it.

Also, how about things that can't be explained by humans? Things that seem to have more than rational reasoning behind it?

Are ghost real? Ever got a cold chill when it is ninety degrees? Ever had a door shut by itself with no breeze?

I lived in a house that many feared, I have seen some strange things.

Entered the house after being gone several days and smell of perfume took your breath (Nobody claimed to have been there while I was away).

Entered the house and the inside of the door was covered in blood. I figured someone broke a window and entered the house, left by the back door with a bloody hand. No broken windows and nothing was missing. (The Sheriffs office filled out a report)

Entered the house and took off my shoes, had to use the restroom, stepped on a soaking wet rug in the bathroom. Looked around and the toilet paper roll was dripping water from it as it hung there. The sink and tub both bone dry, no signs of water splashed anywhere else.

Those cold chills mentioned, occasional got them.

Dog would bark in the middle of the night as if there was someone just outside the bedroom door. No one ever found.

The light bulbs blow in the house one room at a time, and then the TV went up in smoke.

Leave and come back, one of the rooms I didn't use would have the lights on. This happened several times.

The cleaning lady claimed something kept shutting the lights off on her and brought one of her friends after that.

A neighbor gal mowed the yard and wouldn't mow without bring a friend along. She claimed that while mowing she saw a man dressed in a black long sleeve shirt and pants on a ninety degree day disappear. While on the riding mower she noticed him and turned around at the end of yard and mowed away from him, when she got to the other end and turned toward him he was gone. I lived in the country and one can see for miles, he just vanished. No cars picked him up, just gone. She didn't stick around.

I found a dead coyote leaned against the back door, moved it, and went to bed. The next morning it was leaned against the back door just as it was.

This was a five bedroom house and I resided there alone. Whatever it was that took place there, never really bothered me. I came to expect the unexpected the six years I lived there. A ghost? You decide.

Ghosts are sensory pattern heuristics gone awry. For example, when a door shuts we think someone shut it and don't sense changes in pressure that are too subtle for our senses. Some sensory information causes our defense systems to engage that we are not consciously aware of, hairs on the back of the neck for example are a legacy from our early evolution and when the hairs rising would make us appear bigger.

Then there's the suggestibility of the human mind. Someone tells you a house is haunted so you imagine things and are hypersensitive to things that aren't there.

We are humans and most humans don't believe in something unless they have seen it,really the only exception is religion. However some humans claim to have seen ghosts, including my uncle. I believe my uncle, i know hes not crazy or a liar, which means that I believe in ghosts.

It's the same with ghosts. The fact that we believe in ghosts doesn't make it real. We need hard evidence. The hard evidence that my orange is purple is that it's sitting in front of me already geneticall modified.

Many people have the supernatural gift of being able to 'see' or feel the presence of ghosts. Unfortunately also many people do not believe in ghosts and when people claim of seeing one, they think they are lying or they are mad. The reason most give is that there is no proof other than opinions and personal encounters. Well, there is no proof for a lot of things. There is no proof of God, there is no proof of Jesus being divine. And yet people still believe in them. I guess it's the same sort of thing.

NerdvanaGirl(30) Disputed

It's inaccurate to state that humans are made of "energy" - yes, we have energy, but we get it from food. This raises the question - do/would ghosts need to eat in order to maintain their existence (in other words, stay "alive")? Otherwise they'd use up the energy they already have, just as living humans do. Do you also think other creatures (non-human animals and plants) have souls and turn into ghosts, since every living thing has to have energy in some way or another? Also, while energy cannot technically be 'destroyed,' you're also misconstruing the already-mentioned dilemma of energy being able to be used up. In other words, we have to continue to eat to get our energy replenished.

We're also, of course, still faced with the problem of where ghosts go - if all the beings to ever live still inhabit the earth as energy, the earth would be crammed full of these things.

Moreover, there's no verifiable evidence to suggest that ghosts exist, or evidence to support the notion that consciousness (which is an emergent property of the brain) can be maintained and its personality preserved in the absence of the physical presence of the brain.

"if people can believe in angels and in god,ghosts shouldn't be too hard to believe in." I see your point, but I would say that people shouldn't believe in ANY of those things. It's all myth and superstition. A great book I'd recommend about it is "The Demon-Haunted World: Science As A Candle In The Dark." The brilliant scientist and critical thinker Carl Sagan eloquently explains the perseverance of paranormal beliefs through history, and why the case for it is much less logical than we would intuitively believe.

logically when we die our energy or "souls" must exist since energy cannot be destroyed

The energy in the human body is a combination of three kinds of energy: chemical energy, heat and electrical energy. Chemical energy is stored in chemical bonds and electrical energy in electric potential differences between the cytoplasm and the intercellular fluid.

Heat is the useless kind of energy. There's not much you can do with it and it will simply dissipate through the air around you. The electrical energy becomes heat when the cells die and they can no longer maintain the potential differences. The only usefull kind is chemical energy. Bugs, bacteria and fungi breaks the bonds down to use the chemical energy for themselves. Some chemical energy remains in terms of bones.

This is what happens to all energy if energy is defined like it is in physics and chemistry.

There are entities that can't be felt or seen or heard. There is TELEPATHY, a system that is naturally in-built and needs no explanation. There is DEJAVU that every human soul has experienced and INTUITIONS exist and you know they do. Human life and this World is bind together with forces which aren't physical. PARAPSYCHOLOGY has proved over and again the existence of such power. So many sciences were never accepted because they don't appear to normal eyes. Paranormal psychology is an evidence to such beings.

It is a possibility that there are powers unknown to human eyes such as Ghosts that exist in the Universe and they should not be ignored only because they are not visible.

And each one of us have had experiences (and it is quite not possible that you haven't) that can't be explained logically and for all that there is parapsychology.

If they isn't any hard evidence, who's to say that they aren't real or not?

Pictures in a camera aren't to be trusted either, it's easy enough with photoshop and light tricks.

Video footage? No. A video can be edited as well.

Ghosts are part of the human culture as elements that help us relate to an afterlife, but upon understanding the cycle of life in a scientific way, based on facts, we can no longer consider ghosts as being existent.

ghost and other forms of the paranormal are only figments of our imaginations. Consider for example why what we consider to be scary and horrific only occur in the night. There are no ghosts or paranormal creatures that lure around in the day killing and scaring people. So why do we only see them at night? It's because of our evolutionary ancestors, who hunted and gathered in the day and crowded into caves to protect themselves from various animals at night. There is absolutely no difference between night and day besides the absence of photons yet we as humans always see the night as something to be scared of, and in fact we are partly right because our ancestors had to hide from predators that might be lurking at night.

This can be explained by such occurences as conditional experiences, group-genetic mutations, and electromagnetic halucination. So, in other words, I'm just crazy. There are no supernatural experiences.

Ghosts are nothing more than the hope that there is something beyond death. The reason man dreamed up ghosts is so he would have the belief that when he dies, he doesn't go into a hole in the ground and rot. Of course, various churches soon replaced this idea with their different versions of "heaven", but it is hard to displace the deep-seated belief that no matter what, man will go on after death regardless of his deeds in life with conditional paradises.

In the end, if it is or it is not, is a triviality. But people is always trying to share with others their own beliefs, as if they were not convinced of them at all...

NO WAY because you watch so any movies and books that you start thinking things are there but they are just part of your imagination. Also there has been no proof as to whether they exist. When you see the photos of so called 'UFOS' they are just been edited to make a fake image and many of those people you here saying I have been abducted and I remember they cut my arm in these weird letters EYTFDYGJF. they have just done a publicity stunt which earnt them heaps of money and they cut themselves to make it more real.

Its a load of ______

Ghosts are just fictions of people's imaginations. Most of those people are kids or lunatics, where imaginary friends are common. It's like the "monster" that you had in your closet, the one I did not believe in. It does not exist.

Many scientists believe that ghosts are fake, but parapsychologists believe ghosts are real. Spirits are electromagnetic fields. Brain waves can make people see and hear many things. Electromagnetic waves can affect the nervous system. This can cause somebody to hallucinate. The eye can act as a TV screen. Instead of the person taking in images, they are transmitted out.

Another explanation for "ghost sightings" may be that the mind is just trying to "let off a little steam." NASA has shown that the human eyeball has a resonant frequency. There are eighteen cycles a second. The eyeball starts to vibrate in response to infra-sound. This causes a serious smearing of vision. In at least two hauntings low frequency sound may to blame.

People can put, fake ghosts in their pictures. By using a flashlight, a cigarette, a flash pack, and a camera, a person can create the effect of a mysterious light. Turn on the flashlight and walk toward the camera. When you are four to five feet from the camera, turn off the flashlight and light a cigarette. Have a friend set off a flash using the flash pack. Snap the shutter of the camera closed. This will result in a picture with mysterious lights in the background.

In conclusion, there are many explanations for ghost sightings. Some sightings are a result of people playing tricks and others are a result of hallucinations.

There isn't any ACTUAL proof of them, and it doesn't make sense in the first place. No facts back it up, so why should I think they are real? Are they souls or spirits or something? Well sorry to burst your bubble, but souls and spirits don't exist.

There is no good reason to believe in ghosts. No facts or evidence that is not someones personal account of events.

I have never seen one, people often see what they want to see, people also try to rationalize what they think they see as something more than what was actually there. There is no scientific justification for the belief in or description of reality as possibly containing ghosts.

The minimum length for an argument is 50 characters. The purpose of this restriction is to cut down on the amount of dumb jokes, so we can keep the quality of debate and discourse as high as possible.

Not in the sense that a dead person's spirit roams the Earth for some kind of unfinished buisiness. I do think (not believe, think) that it is possible that if something terrible happens, a negative 'vibe' of some sort could remain. Sometimes people feel uncomfertable in places where brutal murder happened, even if those people didn't know about what happened. I also don't exclude the genuinity of psychics/mediums, but I don't think they actually communicate with the deceased.

Actually I think all paranormal videos stating that there are ghosts in this building beware! and mediums communicating to the dead are all "scripted"...you know for entertainment just to scare people around.

That's their job to earn money.

Empty words… Light enough to float far above one’s head.

I watch these words.

Some, the lighter ones, soar. Others drift.

All are meaningless, touching no one.

Always, eventually I forget they are there… accidentally crush them in my palms… for these words are fragile, are made after all, with just the ghost of substance.

These words, I once despised. Oh, how I despised!

These words, once upon a time.

There is little to no evidence against the existence of ghosts. Alot of people believe that ghosts do not exist, simply because their existence has not been scientifically proven
