I've heard lots of story regarding ghosts...but i've never realy seen one..That's why i don't really believe in them.. Though i get scared sometimes when i hear about other's experiences, i really wonder if it's true or maybe just their imaginatiion..Guess i'll never know unless i see one..

Hi videnom,the universe is as vast as it is mysterious.I would not be surprised if supernaturals are also existing here.I believe in them.I should rather say,I don't disbelieve them and I won't rule out their existence parallel to ours.I have undergone many experiences that are called spooky or haunting.I have felt the presence of someone or something invisible around me.So had my mother.If I narrate the incident here,it would take me a long time.In brief,I believe in ghosts.It does not make any difference to me what science says.

One of my friends said once: "What if we're ghosts for a parallel universe?"

well,I do believe in Ghost.But something about them is wrong!!!I mean Ghosts will not attack us without reason. According to me Ghosts will not Be able to harm us. Just go to this discussion: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2649777.aspx You will find the answer..

So you think ghosts will make us feel their presence when we'll annoy them or what?

Not annoy them...They will be having some relations with you.So If that person who ahas became a ghost became annoyed because of your ancestors,Then they may trouble you.Then there are so many wizards in India who can control the ghosts and can tell whom to attack.This type of wizards are in large numbers in Karnataka(in India).

Hey. Well, I personally have never seen them, but, family members have said they have, so I am not sure what to think about this subject. I do believe what they are saying, because I know my family, but I am just having a hard time seeing this as something as true. I am a Bible believer, and there is a place where the apostles saw Jesus walking on the water, and said that they thought it was his "spirit". This is saying that they must have believed in "ghosts". I just dont know though, because I will now have to check into this a little more. Have a great day, and thanks for this discussion.

I think not everyone in this discussion believes in ghosts. This is ok, everyone is entitled to have a belief. I mostly use the word spirit or angel and not ghost because people think about things. I believe in the bible too specially where Abraham was visited by angels like Mary was.

Yes, I know what you are saying, and it is strange to say the least. I have been looking into this because I believe angels are men from the past. I should have been more clear as to say, that the apostles seeing Jesus thinking it was a spirit, maybe they believed in ghosts, but the word ghost is tricky. The Bible uses Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, etc. It is just something I am now looking into... Hey, thanks for making me think... And have a great day.

oops, sorry, I am NOT saying what you said is strange, but that many things we dont know about GOD, angels, spirits, and ghosts is strange. To me anyway.

Some bible translations refer to the "holy ghost" but this is not the same as what some people consider to be ghosts. I too call ghosts, spirits.

It's only your belief.If you believe in him then he is real and if not then he does not exist.

I have contact with the spiritual realm and will tell you that indeed spiritual beings do exist. Our reasoning can tell us it is very possible if we believe in God. If someone does not believe God exists, it becomes very difficult to reason such a thing as real and impossible to prove. God is very spiritual.

Hi Zer0Stats, The subject in this discussion is about Ghosts. Who is he? I am assuming here that you are making reference to the comment above yours which is mine. In this case would it not be better to place it under my comment so that the reference could be found? I am assuming that you meant God. This is your belief. Ok.

i believe in them. there is nothing that can say for sure that they don't exist so why not? there are many people that had strange experiences. I believe that everything in this world is energy.. so what if ghosts are what's left of our energy after we die? some call it soul, i call it energy. that may explain why we can't see them, but we can feel them. I also saw in a documentary about spirits that were haunting a woman at first and after her husband too. aparently, those ghosts were feeding on their fear. so I don't know what they are for sure, or what they do, or why, but something's out there for sure.

Hi Videnom! Even i don't know but somethings or sometimes its make us to put our thinking\opinion in controversy.... An incident before i was born that happened to my father and he told us later......my father originally belong to a hilly area he was not only aware of all these fact but also he was brave,he knew all the tricks to bring under control to such situations and the animal those turned to aggressive aswell. Its was the time when my father newly joined a government service and decided to shift to the city with my mom in the government quarter.Just after some days he got shifted to the quarter with my mom,those days were old days not as now and moreover the population of the cities weren't as densely as now.The colony where they shifted had only four or five buildings and three govt. employee were residing over there with their family.... My father was a hostel incharge,so he always got late to back home.One day when he was returning from duty it was about 11.30 pm an woman ran down into him and tightly hug,before he ask anything to her she became unconsious,my father brought her to our home anyhow . Actually the woman was our neighbour's wife,who got married newly. After few hours she awaked by doing every possible by my father to consious her.She was very scared from the incident happened to her and so shoked that she is unable to answer any question of my parents.Often introgation and brought her into confidence by my parents made her to speak out some at the mean time her husband came down from the duty. She told that as usual she was wating in the balcony looking toward the road for her husband as he was getting late as daily.Suddenly she saw our another neighbour(Mr Abhishek) coming out from the quarter onto the road.Before she ask anything he asked,"Aren't your husband back from duty? "she replied,"yes." And than he asked her to come down to roam until her husband be back from duty. As she was not known what was happening but she just following the man as directed.She came down and started roaming here and there nearby the quarter with the man even her husband hadn't come yet,she got so tense that she couldn't give proper attention toward the man.Slowly the man bringing away her from the quarter side and she was four or five steps back to the man. After sometimes when she realised that they were come far away from the quarter side,she just looked at the man as he got realised or not without saying anything. She noticed before say anything that the man wore half pant,no shoes or sandals he put and got very frightened when she pointed that his legs were band to her side but he was walking forward to her.Before she say anything the man got disappeared,without wasting a single second she ran out from there with shouting,"help" ,"help"...........and falled down into my father.

I am going to go with believe on this one. I do think ghosts or spirits exists in our world. I think ghosts are trapped souls that have not reached the place of peace or eternal rest. I think each one is wanting something, from the living to help them find peace.
