Re: Do you believe in ghosts?

You are being a bit obtuse here.You're a little obtuse yourself, Friend. I mean that in a nice way. You don't seem to get what I'm trying to get across. maybe that's my fault.
Of course if you uploaded a photo of what you claim is a ghost I wouldn't believe it. Neither should anybody else. But there are ways to find out if an image has been tampered with.And if such a test was performed and it was proven to be 100% authentic there would Still be people who would say it was fake and the person who performed the test was a fraud. Hell, you'd probably be the first to call out "Bullshit"
Every person who has claimed to see a ghost and isn't making it up for attention(which is what most of them do) has probably had something else happen to them that is reasonable and explainable.Yes, absolutely. If you see something the first thing you do is rule out all possible explanations. You weren't on drugs, you were not dreaming, it wasn't an illusion, etc. When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
Remember the Laurel and Yanny audio phenomenon that went viral last year? Or the "blue" dress that everyone thought was white? Human's are easily tricked. We are.I remember that, I wasn't fooled by either one. Of course, I didn't give a crap either.
Also it's extremely scientific to dismiss eye witness testimony when inexplicable, explainable paranormal events are said to occur. Science as a definition is something that can be studied and observed.And when was the last time this phenomena has been studied and observed by a scientist? Never as far as I know. All those guys running around in dark houses with EMF detectors trying to catch something are not scientists. They collect data but it might not be properly interpreted. I would love to see a scientist actually do some research in the field in these places that are supposed to be haunted. But you'd have better chances of seeing world peace in your lifetime.
Ghosts are just science fiction.So was the submarine, Space Travel, and breaking the sound barrier. What was Science fiction in the past has become science fact today. The paranormal is just the normal that hasn't been discovered yet. Whether it's a disembodied spirit or a natural occurring phenomenon that hasn't been identified.
Also, if you are or anyone is Christian and don't believe what is written in the bible is a fact how can you believe in any of it? Either it's legit or it's not. Again, it's a book that was largely written hundreds of years after the events depicted in the New Testament. Yes, Jesus was more than likely a real person. No he didn't die and come back from the dead, turn water into wine or walk on water. God didn't create the earth in 6 days.Most Christians tend to focus on the Miracles and such. I focus on the human aspect of Jesus. His teachings, the parables, How he saved a woman from being stoned to death. To me that's always been more important.
You never played telephone a kid? Wow. But you are aware of the premise of the game and understand how it works and why it's infamous though, right?I swear I've never played the game and I don't even know how it's played. Up until today I've never even heard of it.
There have been videos recorded of supposed Paranormal Phenomena. Most can be dismissed. But those that can't be easily dismissed probably have never been properly examined and most likely never will be. Except maybe on a Sci Fi channel special and even then you can't be sure the person doing the examination is the lidget
People who believe want to believe because it's exciting and fun. It's mysterious and scary. It's also hooey.All of this and more.
