I think my initial inclination would be no, but I've had some strange experiences that I just can't explain so I think I'd leave it as a....possibly. I think there is more to us than just a shell of a body so who knows what happens when we die.

There is something more yes, but nothing that indicates an afterlife. Rather than just being a sack of meat, the human body contains a network of electricity and chemical interactions that resemble molecular nanotechnology.

I’ve had numerous experiences with ghosts starting when I was a child. I didn’t understand what I was experiencing when I was a child and lived most of my life as a total skeptic so the way I see it, people who’ve never experienced anything supernatural are probably going to be skeptical and I think that’s the way it should be. It’s always good to be a skeptic. Supernatural experiences are disquieting(speaking for myself). If for example, a person sees a ghost, that experience can challenge how he’s used to perceiving reality or it makes you more likely to sometimes question reality and frankly that's deeply disturbing or at least it has been for me. I’ve found myself on a few occasions when I’ve encountered something strange, (I found a guy laying in the road in the middle of the night) wondering if it’s supernatural or not. I’m only speaking for myself. I only know one other person who I believe has had supernatural experiences and we’ve spoken very little about it. I’ve never belonged to a group or anything of that nature so my point here is that I don’t know if my experience is common or uncommon but I sort of feel that I’d be better off if I’d never had any supernatural experiences at all. For me, it’s been more a burden than a blessing. I don't understand why some refer to it as a gift. I know my views are contrary to many of the ghost hunting shows on tv but it is what it is. I suppose everyone is different, I know I am.

So I would never try to convince anyone that ghosts are real. I think I envy those who can remain skeptics.

Well if we don't link this to religion, then no. Footage that has been spread across the internet about ghosts and spirits is rubbish. The reason is because if there was such thing, then why doesn't it present itself. If we link this to religion though, then its true. According to my religion (Islam) then ghosts and spirits are real. Its not that they dint present themselves but its because god helps us not see them. The reason for this is because they are terrifying creatures that can cause a fatal heart attack in a matter of seconds.

To conclude, my answer is yes, ghosts are real.

Side: Yes

You were able to type this question because you are a spirit in your body. You will one day depart from the body and get the answer for yourself. You will realise you were looking for evidence of spirits while you were and always have and will be one.

There is zero concrete testable evidence for supernatural entities so regarding such a thing I think it’s reasonable to claim they do not exist

Our mind has strong power to create anything. Ghost or spirits are the creation of our mind. if some unexpected and unbelievable things happen we give them some name.
