Do you believe in ghosts?
« on: July 16, 2014, 12:09:51 pm »
Yeah, the title says it all :fox-:):

For me, yes, I do believe in ghosts. I believe that in some way, there are people that wander the world in an infinite loop, trying to find their way to either heaven or hell or whatever. Who knows, maybe there's one floating right next to you :fox-;):

I don't believe in ghosts, spirits, heaven, hell, etc.  I've never had tangible evidence presented to me and don't think I ever will have tangible evidence, so no.  I don't believe.

No. And probably never will unless there is solid evidence to prove it.

Not really. Most people claim to see them in scary places but I think that's just there mind playing tricks on them. If they where real you would have thought we would know about them and have real evidence by now. So no I don't believe in them.

No, because I don't believe there's anything so special about life that it would continue after death.

I'm not sure whether ghosts exist to be physcially seen, but once when in a building I sensed a dreadful, almost overpowering sense of evil and had to leave. Some people have experienced poltergeist activity, doors opening and closing. When staying the weekend in our Gloucestershire home I swear the house has an invisible presence because I heard doors opening and closing, and footsteps on the floorboards outside my bedroom. But there was nobody there except mum and she was zonked out from a boozy evening, and my sisters were sound asleep. It felt spooky.

Not really...sometimes I do..but for the majority I think it's more about superstition than anything..

There are stories I've heard where a group of people went to this place where there was supposed to be supernatural activity and they could 'feel' something or they'd get physically touched by things not there...but I'm not sure how much I believe something I've read and not experienced for myself

I say no, yet i'm a bit worried after my door slammed open with so much force it took plastering off the wall. I checked but nobody was there. I shook it off and just considered it wind.  :lol-fox:

Well... I believe in logic which implies from the lack of scientific evidence that ghosts are in fact not real. So my answer then is no but I'm open minded to new concepts.  :fox-;):

It's strange, you'd think that since my fursona is a ghost, and that I jokingly refer to myself as a 'ghost', that I would believe in ghosts. But I don't. The concept of ghosts is more of a symbolic thing for me.
My pronouns are they/them/their, thank you.

Reviving this just because I'm watching paranormal vids. I'm also interested to hear what others say.

Honestly, I don't believe in ghosts. It makes sense because i'm not religious. I've also never once had an experience that would lead me to believe in them, even after I spent the night in a supposed haunted house, along with my aunt's house who people kept saying was haunted. I'd have to see it to believe it (just like religion)
I do still think they're fascinating in a supernatural sense, as they're one of my fav supernatural creatures (right next to witches and vamps)

I don't actually believe in ghosts, but I believe they are a symbol of rememberance.

I believe in ghosts, its just one of those things that happens so often its hard for me not to believe it even though a lot of people try to disprove it it has yet to actually be disproven like many other beliefs.
I've had no real instances myself other than a couple minor things when I was little but its still hard for me not to believe ^^

I believe ghost are really in some cases like if a medium talks to a ghost and says break open this wall in your house to find a file and there is an actual file there, then yes I believe. But if it’s like my sheets moved last night and a shirt fell there must be ghost, those I don’t believe

I believe we are not alone in this world. I cannot prove or disprove anything though, so I remain a skeptic. But I do lean towards the believer side. Strange things have happened to me in my life that were possibly paranormal.

Simply put, yes, but I don’t think that’s always what or the only thing we become when we die. I believe in multiple “levels” of the afterlife / nonphysical planes of existence, as well as reincarnation. It’s complicated. However, whether or not I think ghosts can truly affect the physical world or get in contact with humans is debatable.
