I in all my days have never seen or have known someone who has seen a ghost. Do you believe they exist? I personally think it's all a mental thing. Like, if you're really scared for some reason at night you think you see something then you blink your eyes and it's gone. Explain.

Seeing as just last night I had a whole bunch of bizarre experiences, yes, I think I do.

To clarify, I didn't see anything, I heard things and I felt a poke, but that could all be done subconsciously, obviously (though I did have someone with me to clarify the noises, as far as where and when they occurred). The icing on the cake, however, was the fact that we had the billiard balls racked up, we heard them break, and upon checking them out they were scattered across the table with some even in the pockets. Unless I am in some way gifted with telekinesis, which I'm pretty sure I am not, I don't know how that could be done via one's own subconscious.

As someone who has worked in a nursing home for 5 years, I definitely believe in ghosts. I've seen a few as well. I've seen residents who were long past.

Wow, I've had experiences like that before.

I'd like to believe in ghosts and spirits but... I'm not sure.

Yeah, as strange as it is, I still don't know if I fully believe. I'm definately not adamantly against the idea or anything, though.

Yes I do. A couple of years I woke up not being able to breathe, and I could actually FEEL hands gripping my throat, even though I couldn't see anything. I wasn't having a nightmare or anything, so it couldn't have just been shortness of breath from a nightmare. It never happened to me before that, and it has never happened since.

I work in the cinema, and one of the screens is haunted (it used to be a coal yard from about 200 years ago, there were a lot of deaths.) Anyhoo, my job is basically to clean up after people, and when doing so, i regularly hear voices when no one else is there. Not loud enough to know what they are saying, but quiet enough to distinguish them (usually a man and a young girl) At first i thought it was the movie playing in the next screen, although each screen is soundproofed very well, and it has happened when the next screen is over. Also, one of the curtains in front of the screens has moved on its own, which was kinda creepy, and everyone who works with me has had their own experiences.

wow...thats a long reply

Just because I can't explain something doesn't make it a ghost.
Doesn't make it not a ghost either, but I have asneaking suspicion whatever those things are, EVERYONE is wrong about it.

I believe in Ghosts, The Jersey Devil, Aboriginal Australians, Extraterrestrials, and Permanent Records.

Yeah... also I guess I should add that I'm with Jimmy on this... but when I was younger, I was completely addicted to the stuff. Always looking up different **** like this from the internet.... I could recall so many different weird ass things I've actually read into...

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom
Remember us - if at all - not as lost
Violent souls, but only

Some douche turned my amp up to 4 which is way to loud( I keep it less thean two) and i think it was a ghost.
Soon you will sit on the bench

I've seen a ghost, but dont believe in them. I think it was just some sort of short hallucination.


I love the idea though, "haunted" areas and such are great.
#26
yes i do but i didnt vote, anyhow ive had experiences and the universe has a ton of unexplainable things like the begginng or how god was created and even so its so confusing like it has so much things made up and weird reasosn to try to explain something reality in our world cant so yea if the universe if infinite ghosts exist for sure
#27
i think that people just try to scare you...i sometimes think i see wierd stuff..but then i remember...wait its fake and it goes away...like onetime i thought someone was chasing me thru my house and it felt like it..but in the end it was supposed to be that chick from the exorcist tryna get me but i was like...bullcrap thats fake nothing graabbed me im untouchable
#28
im very very very very skeptic. i dont even go by 'seeing is beleeiving' because even if i did see a ghost i would just put it down to my mental health.

i just dont trust my brain, my brain is the kinda brain who **** around with me just because it thinks its funny. damn bastard

Yes, I definitely believe in ghosts. When I was younger, and I was an only child, I'd hear noises downstairs, get scared, and run into my parents room. I would lay there, and both my parents would be asleep as well, and I would hear cups clanging together down in the kitchen. I'm pretty damn sure that the cat couldn't get up on the counter (Which was much higher than it could jump), open the cupboards, and clang cups together every night without breaking them. This happened very often until we moved into a brand new house.

Sounds more likely than ghosts breaking the laws of... well everything just to mess with a 5 year old.


Think about it, there could be tons of solutions. How do you know your parents didn't run a crappy dishwasher every night and you didn't know these things because you were a child?


Sorry, but any explanation is a better one than "OMG GHOSTS LIEK/HATE ME!" (Not at you, but people in here in general.)


I'm not really looking to piss you off or anything and, like I said, I'm not even sure that I believe in ghosts, but how can you be so sure they don't exist?
