Yesterday I saw a horror movie called" Rule #1: There are no ghosts", and i was shocked by the stories in the movie. The explanation to Rule #1 is that, for every seemingly inexplicable phenomenon, there is a corresponding scientific and rational explanation. However, the movie actually turns down RULE #1 and presents us an incredible truth: there are ghosts in the world! I couldn't tell whether i believe that there are ghosts or not~ it's hard to say. I think there are still some mistery phenomenon that science could not explain. What's your point? do you believe rule #1 or not? or do you ever come up with some mistery phenomenon? Thanks for your sharing.

i think ghosts exist!!;) so I believe that there can be some phenomenon like that and some people can experienced about it!!as regards science..i think may be all phenomenon can explained or not..may be with progress and much sources science can arrive to explain som events which now we consider impossible or not normal!! In fact in the past,old centuries,many people think about a miracle if somebody have the power to save a person ill..because chemistry and medicines were not known as we know now...so it is possible that in the future people can develop new branch of culture and so they can arrive to understand things that now we consider incredible or simply unbeliveble!!

Thanks for your comment. I also hope that one day we can develop a new branch of culture to research on something mystery and we can understand more incredible phenomenon around us.

I won't deny that ghost may just exist but then we cannot say for sure. I always believe that if something is not for sure, all I can say is I don't know. Proving ghosts does not exist is very difficult. In fact proving something does not exist is always very difficult because you have to explore every single possibility and prove that none of them are what you are searching for. So, I won't dare to say that ghosts do not exist because it may just occur that a ghost is standing right behind you but you cannot see/feel its existence.

Thank you for your response. I agree with you that if something is not for sure, all we can say is we don't know. It is really rough to prove whether something mystery exists or not.

Science has not even scratched the surface of the mysteries of this world. That is not to say humans has not advanced because we have, and scientist are working hard to understand our world but they cant learn or know more if the rules are based on our five senses. There are no machines or labs to test ghost or things like that so it gets complicated, because unless they can test things in the labs, they cannot give scientific answers. And we are living in a world where so many things are are beyound the labs

Oh yeah, I know for a fact that ghosts exist. Why do I say this? In the house I'm living in now, I have heard footsteps, voices, whispering and seen shadows both in and outside of my house. My two daughters, ages 3 and 5, have both complained of someone waking them up in the middle of the night by talking to them. My 5 year old has mentioned that a little girl could be heard upstairs playing with her and her sister's toys. This spirit, or spirits, can mimick voices as well. When my 5 year old and I were outside, my 3 year old came downstairs to where her stepfather and a family friend were at and they both could've sworn they heard mine and my oldest girl's voices upstairs. About that time we came thjrough the back door! Creepy huh?

I have never seen a ghost, but to me that does not mean they do not exist. Science can not explain everything that is happying in the world that is why they are still working to see if ghost do exist. We believe in what we want to believe in science is support to help us decide if what we believe in rational or not rational.

Good day.... There will be always be somethings that can't be explained by science. I think this kind of phenomenon would always remind us that there are things greater than us. I believe in ghost because I experienced it before.

personally I do not understand why people would disprove the existence of ghosts, spirits or anything they cannot see.. so therefore why would you say it does or doesn't exist its like saying that just because you cannot see (your god) that he isn't real but... then again if he isn't real then how do you explain the sudden turn of events in people's lives when they take the time to pray to him about the problems in their lives. Anyway to get back to your original question yes I do believe they are out there amongst humanity day or night.. whether or not there are skeptics who would say otherwise. Remember just because you can't see or hear a ghost... or anything for that matter does not mean that it isn't real

I'm not sure what to believe. I've heard stories from people who say that they've seen them before. I can't say that they don't exist but I also can't say for sure if they do either. I've heard that for every phenomenon there's a scientific explanation. Maybe there's a scientific explanation for ghosts and we just don't know what it is. There are still so many things about the world that scientists don't know about. We're learning things everyday. Then again... maybe there are some things that cannot be explained.

I still believe that in this world has ghost. I used to see and I believe in it. My cousin and I love each other so much and she loved to play with my hair. After she die at age 5 and she didn't go anywhere, she came to my room every night when I was 16 years old. she played with my hair and laugh so much... seem like she is enjoy with it or something. I was so scare and I said, please stop scare me and then I just dream about her and she told me that she didn't mean to scare me. She just missed me, that's all. I used to see some shadow walking around my house too... but they never hurt us tho. I never see Rule#1 but I believe in ghost.

I dont believe in ghost or maybe i do if i see one. I do believe that everyone of us has a gift, seeing , hearing or even feeling their presence but not me.I love watchin ghost or horror movies but its just on how they imagine things on how they cret the film. it is the brain that controls all, being creative is an art thats what we see on movies nowadays.

Yes there are ghosts or spirits that live amoung us. I never really thought about it until moved into the home we have. I thought it was just me but my children have seen things too. I think that people in general don't believe because they want to rationalize it. You can't rationalize everything. Somethings you just have to accept.
