(Forgive me if this has been discussed. I’ve scanned the gazillions of topics and see nothing like this…)
Are ghosts fact or fiction?
What are they, if they are real? Actual spirits or globs of non-dissapating energy?
If it’s possible that they do exist, why hasn’t the scientific community studied it once and for all? Is it because no “true scientist” would “stoop” to studying the paranormal?
I basically don’t believe in them. But there are so many reasonable people who have had experiences that they couldn’t explain.
One friend of mine got caught in a riptide and SWEARS that a man helped her get to shore, but immediately dissapeared and witnesses saw nobody help her. Hallucinations while under physical stress?
My brother and his wife were on their honeymoon at some lodge in Banff, Canada. In thier room, they set a plate of cheesecake on top of their flat topped cooler. When they weren’t looking the plate fell off. So they thought they put the plate too close to the edge, and replaced it squarely on the cooler. It fell off again, of course when they weren’t looking. They put the cheesecake in the cooler and forgot about it. But in the lobby they saw something about the lodge’s “ghost”, “Molly” or something. They asked the front desk clerk about it, and the clerk told them that “molly” watches over the lodge as a promise to her husband on his deathbed ages ago. So she’s still lurking around, playing jokes on people. Lopsided floor boards?
Then a friend worked at a government office in Phoenix, and a full floor in the building was unoccupied and never used. She asked about it and was told it was haunted and no one wants to work on that floor. She dared to go to that floor and she says that “immediately” felt a chilling, evil presence that scared her to death. Power of suggestion?
What do you all think?
