    You use the word "documentary" like this is a thing...

    Ghosts do not exist, hence it is not haunted...

    Try googling "gullable"...
    gullible*

    Ghosts HAVE to exist, otherwise all the horror campfire stories in the world amount to nothing!

    No more warm days and cold nights by campfires with ghost stories and hot cocoa. And s'mores! Think of the s'mores, Sweeney. The s'mores!!
    There are still serial killers wearing the skins of their prey... 

    I will never lie to you. What I say is how I feel...

    This is the paranormal section of the forums, so this is the appropriate place to show this kind of research. Thank you for your interest in this topic.

    Sweeney_Todd [27468]

    It is, but ghosts do not exist. This is a forum, not a post your whacky shit and expect everyone to agree section...

    Debate is the clue...
    Ghosts have been scientifically explained to exist, though we still struggle to explain exactly what they are. We know they include electromagnetism and influence energy, positive or negative, and that energy can directly elicit emotional response from people who come in contact with it unknowingly. So, ghosts are a form of energy which is not produced from sunlight or our technology. What generates the energy, why it's occasionally accompanied by visual representation... that stuff is up for debate as I have yet to see a scientific approach manifest an apparition. 

    To say ghosts don't exist is inaccurate however. Historically ghosts and spirits are most often described as felt, not seen. Media and entertainment has put thr emphasis on apparitions, which could possibly be a mental response from our brain trying to interpret the energy encounter we know affects our bodies. Kind of like how we see someone holding us down or standing over us when we eake up with sleep paralysis.

    The stories of specific people and clear apparitions are more difficult to believe for certain. These are things you have to experience yourself to believe, and even then it's not always easy to believe it. Kind of like explaining electricity to someone from the first century, or wireless internet to someone from the 1950's.


    On a personal level I seriously doubt most claims of apparitions. If anything, especially the small town tales of a woman at a lighthouse, etc. These make interesting stories we tell for a variety of reasons, but are very difficult to prove for a reason.

    I don't doubt them all though. Mostly because of an experience I had as a child, awake and clear of mind, who was suddenly and unexpectedly visited by an apparition of a spirit. One which would make sense to visit me, that would have a purpose, and would be for me alone. This experience leads me to believe specifically in a spiritual existence beyond our physical lives, which includes animals.

    Do you believe my final paragraph? Of course not, why would you? If you say it isn't real, does it make it so? Of course not, why would it.

    Please give me a link to your magazine which proves it doesn't.

    Like you, I've done research for many years - right from when I was a child. The most compelling evidence I saw was quite a few years ago on television. It was a science show, they weren't trying to prove the existence of a soul or spirits, but essentially discovered it as a side effect to studying the brain and electromagnetic impulses.

    So, feel free to do some research along the lines of brains. If nothing else, you'll discover just how much we don't know about anything.

    Edit: I'm not sure if you realize how much of a condescending asshole you come across as, but the root of science and understanding is discussion and being open to new information. Seeing all your comments in this forum you are clearly not open yo information but instead eager to provide an opinion based on what you don't know.

    If you have some some reputable scientific studies definitively disproving spirits, ghosts, and all things supernatural, boy, I would love to see that. Like your input, they seem to revolve around personal opinion or at best, focus on specific incidents and leave plenty of unanswered questions where it counts.

    Also if you point to psychology as an explanation... it's good for explaining general human behavior but terrible with anything which doesn't fit neatly in a box. Phycology is a self-fulfilling prophecy and I'll leave it at that. Neurology stufies more than people's words and actions, and unveils a whole lot more about humans and their environment.

    It's amazing how hard you push your point, and yet told me that I was the one pushing my Christian dogma and then told me to go and do what shall not be done.

    Look at your own actions and compare them to others. Or better yet, RESPECTFULLY disagree and move on. We get that you are an atheist and only believe in the corporeal, doesn't mean we have to instantly follow you point.

    EDIT:
    SInce you are so desperate for reading material to prove either point

    LiveScience.com

    Ghosts may or may not exist, and details reasons as for why.

    If anyone wants more please DM me and I'll gladly share.

    It's out there, your internet obviously works, go find it.

    I know you're just trolling and honestly it's getting old.

    It's out there, your internet obviously works, go find it.

    Or you know, if you can't disprove what I've seen with my own eyes, retract your statement.
    But you have read the scientific proof, why not point me in the right direction? I tried google, but strangely nothing showed up...

    I do not need to disprove something that doesn't exist, you need to prove it does. That's the point...

    I will never lie to you. What I say is how I feel...
