Well, I am scared of ghosts, darkness. The sound of shivering leaves at a dark lonely night scares me. The crying of dog or mewing of a cat when i am alone, makes me grope for light. I do believe that spirits do exist, do you believe. And if you, do you agree that they can be good or bad, harmful or harmless both evil or good. The word ghost spine-chills me. Actually some years ago there was an experiment done, that confirmed spirits do exist. There was a dog, on the verge of death, suffering from some deadly dieseas. In his last minutes, he was kept in a glass compartment. There was a very small percentage of oxygen in the glass box. the dog was placed in it. The countdown for dogs life began and eventually in seconds, dog was dead. As soon as the dog took its last breath, one of the glass walls developed a crack, and it was as though something went out of it. According to scientists it was energy. I call it spirit, the spirit of that dog. What do you say? Have you encountered something like this, seen a ghost?

A ghost is usually defined as the apparition of a deceased person, frequently similar in appearance to that person, and encountered in places he or she frequented, or in association with the person's former belongings. The word "ghost" may also refer to the spirit or soul of a deceased person, or to any spirit or demon. Ghosts are often associated with haunting, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "the more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of steps and voices, and various odours."Ghosts are controversial phenomena. According to a poll conducted in 2005 by the Gallup Organization, about 32% of Americans believe in the existence of ghosts. The term ghost has been replaced by apparition in parapsychology, because the word ghost is deemed insufficiently precise.

Hi Deepti,I would rather say that u r lucky enough not to encounter a real ghost. Yes i am a very strong believer of ghosts, spirits. I did have real life experiences with them. Probably u should go through the topic i have posted as a discussion pertaining to ghosts. But dont feel scared. Very few people get a chance to meet them. I met them and wish to know more.

I do believe that ghost/spirits (whatever one likes to call them) exist. In my own home I have captured odd things or beings that should have not been there to begin with. It's really hard to explain. I do not feel frightened of them, but do believe that spirits can be evil and good. I think it all depends on how open to the possibility of spirits people are, on whether or not a person will believe in them.

I do beleive the existence of spirits. When people are going though hard times, they focus on making a better life, and they canhave a strong power to get over the hard life. Some pictures about ghosts and spirits really attract me, I always like to see them, though a little scared.
