If you have responded positively, please give explainations for your manner of thinking here. Especially interested in anyone who has had a "strange" experience.
Yes - pretty sure
I've seen and heard strange things that I couldn't explain rationally.
Yes - absolutely positive!
I've heard, smelled, felt, and see some strange things that I couldn't explain. So, has my father and mother when they were children.
I have not experienced much in the way of paranormal ghost activity, I'm just a firm believer in the paranormal. That and I find it very hard to believe that so many people are either lying, hallacuniating(too tired to check the spelling) or flat out wrong when it comes to encounters of the supernatural.
Though, I have felt some things before, which I did not chalk up to ghost activity because it was just a cold chill all of a sudden. I believe there are other signs besides a chill when one encounters a ghost.
yes positive! numerous times i felt them one so evil i did not want follow it,others good and bad.
No- probably not.
Yes!!! They tell me to do terrible things!!!
But seriously, I believe in afterlife so I guess that would count as believing in ghosts.
Anyways, haven't you people seen Ghostbusters?
I've heard stories of people being visited by loved ones that had just died before the person found out. I've also heard people say they've seen ghosts of people who died tragically or some such thing. But me personally: I've never seen anything to make me believe they exist. Still, I suppose I can't totally rule them out just because I've never seen them.
So no, probably not.
My opinion right now is: No. Definitely not, but I am open to changing my opinion.
I've heard of strange experiences happening to others, and I have had some strange and "unexplainable" experiences happen to me. However, just because something is unexplained doesn't automatically make it a supernatural phenomenon.
There is LOTS of what I would call "speculative" evidence - fuzzy photographs, strange sounds, cold drafts, old legends, 2nd and 3rd hand witness accounts, etc. However I have yet to see, read, or hear ANYTHING that that could be considered GOOD evidence. Until then, they don't exist.
Yeah, they probably exist.
Probably not. It's ridiculous to think that they exist.
Yes - pretty sure
Too many unexplained things for me to say otherwise.
No- Probably not.
No, probably not.
Not sure either way.
I stayed at this house just the other week and the room my brothers stayed in was..strange.
I kept feeling really annoyed and irritated whenever I went in there.
"I'm getting angry. I don't think you'll like me, when I'm angry."
Yes - pretty sure.
I don't have any personal experiences, but I'm pretty sure they do exist, in some form.
no theyre program that didnt accept there deletion
Yes, and I've had a few strange experiences, particularly at Gettysburg. I've "seen" the images of dead soldiers at the Slaughterpen, picked up information about where they were from (and I knew very little about the battles at the time), and passed by Seminary Ridge last year and felt the most intense feeling of hatred one could imagine. It literally froze me...I couldn't move my arm, or breathe much more than shallow.
Yes, pretty sure
I cant explain why i say that but thats my answer.
Since I don't believe in the afterlife I will have to say definitely not. I do think weird things happen that can't be explained but I wouldn't attribute it to ghosts or spirits.
I've seen a ghost, so I'd have to say they exist.
People see strange things all the time, but should not seek to place explanation upon them until they've been sussed scientifically. Because eventually, everything will be sussed scientifically. Things that many people consider beyond science (you know what I mean) in this day and age will eventually become science someday in the future.
Science encompasses everything, even that which we can't use it to explain yet.
So the answer to the question is I don't know. Weird things exist yes, but what exactly they are... no-one on this planet can yet know. If we had the answers to everything unusual, then we'd be able to explain the unusual scientifically.
'Ghosts' and 'Spirits' are an example of this. Something is happening there, but what it is no-one knows... so we all go around labelling them ghosts and spirits because it helps to cover up the great-yawning-unknown.
I worry that I've expressed this poorly.
