Just thought this would be an interesting debate...was bored with all the others. So, do you think they are real or fiction? Have you ever had an experience? Please share.....

I WANT TO BELIEVE!

I really do, I love Ghost Hunters... ok so I'm lame. When I was a kid I had an irrational fear of ghosts. At the one house we lived at I'd refuse to open my eyes at night because I thought I'd see this face of an old man. He always looked the same to me when I imagined him. I'd picture him standing in my hallway or peering down at me inches away from my face.
I was both terrified and in love with the idea of ghosts.

As an adult I believe a scientific explanation can explain away anything paranormal. Unfortunately for me, because the idea of ghosts gives me great comfort in believing there is 'life' after death.
Here's one scientific theory on ghosts:

My mom has a tape of me at the age of about 2, where you can hear the bird singing and me have a long convesation with an old woman. You can hear every word and my giggling. She says that it's my great grand mother who died 4 years before I was born. She had heard it a number of times before and decided to put a tape in my room and see if she could catch who ever it was that was keeping me from my afternoon naps. Instead she walked in to find me fast asleep but the tape had caught us talking and playing.on a number of occassions I would play peek-a-boo with someone no one else could see while in peoples arms it freaked them out so much they would just hand me back to my parents. It stoped when my mom walked into her lounge and there sitting in the arm chair was my Great Grandmother, who smiled, waved and disappeared. It never happened again until I became a mother myself and while sitting in the sitting room of my mothers house we would hear very clearly my late Uncle talking and singing to my baby daughter. The difference is that he has never left instead he now brings others with him, including my late sister and my grandmother.
And on the odd occassions there have been complete strangers and family I have never met. Sometime they come with messages, sometimes they come with warnings.

It because of this that I got the fright of my life when My father had left for Portugal the night before. I was siting in my office the next morning when I heard his voice. Needless to say I was terrified because I knew he had caught the plane the night before so for a long while I simply sat listening to make sure that it wasn't a visit. Imagine my relief when he came up the stairs and told me he had missed his flight....As I say there are those moments when you wish that these abilities belonged to someone other than you.

I believe in the supernatural though I haven't had that many experiences. One was when my grandfather had just passed away, I must have been about 10. In Japan we have roughly a week where we keep the body in the house. My bedroom was upstairs and my grandfather was downstairs in a closed room. I remember getting up to go to the bathroom and walked downstairs to see my grandfather taking his shoes off at the door. He looked at me and said "Hi, sorry I'm late," and I cried so loud that it woke the whole house but when I looked up he wasn't there anymore. I wasn't too sure if it was my mind playing tricks on me or not, but I like to think that it was him. Umm aside from that, I have had multiple moments in my new house where I wake up and something is pulling my blankets away from me and I can't scream or make a noise. It always happens when I am home by myself so it scares me a little :/

The thing with my son isn't the only experience my family has had with "something". It's just my most personal. My parents had a house once that was weird, in that there was always footsteps coming up the stairs, and knocks on their door, and other doors opening and closing... all while they were in their upstairs bedroom, and their children were just babies, and in bed. They live in a different house house now, and they sometimes hear little kid footsteps patter across their hall and knock lightly on their bedroom door, but there's never anyone there.

The MOST disturbing thing had nothing to do with "ghosts" at all. My older son, when he was very small, 2 or 3, came up to me and asked me, "Why does 'the elbow' talk so quietly?" I was completely puzzled. "The Elbow"??? I asked him to repeat himself, and he kept asking why the elbow talked so quietly. Obviously he thought "the elbow" wasn't exactly the word, but he couldn't say it correctly. He was not at all good at pronouncing things at the time, so he would try to change "the elbow" in different ways, trying to get it right. I had been talking on the phone with my mother at the time, and she heard him talking. She interrupted to ask, "Did he just say 'diablo'?" I repeated the word, and my son pipes up excitedly "That's it! That's his name!"

I almost fainted. I did NOT like the idea of my son talking to something like that. Scary. But not a ghost.

Oh, on a far less scary note: To the person who heard singing while lying in bed, that has a perfectly normal explanation. My brother thought his room was haunted, but it turned out his bedsprings were picking up a local radio station. You couldn't hear it unless you were lying on his bed. We've also picked up radio signals on shower curtain rods and telephones. It's creepy until you know what it is, then it's just annoying. :P

I agree, I love reading other peoples' experiences and stories! The thing with my "grandmother" was really scary, and the on;y thing that's actually happened to me. I've grown up with my brother and sister and mom and other friends talking about things that happened to them, and I always believed them. But it is different when it happens to you!

Oh wow, great stories! I feel goosebumps on my arms now! lol...I am still a skeptic but I also like to think there are such energy forces that we cannot explain. I guess you don't believe until something actually happens to you. I've heard of people being demon possessed....that to me just seems a little rediculous...but hey, anything is possible right?

When I was 2 almost 3, I remember my aunt coming into my room and woke me from my sleep. We had a conversation and had some "tea". She told me that she loved me and that she would have to leave for a little while and that I should be a very good girl. The next morning I told my parents that she had come by, they looked at me quite strangely and told me that it was impossible. I was adamant that she was there, going so far as to describe what she was wearing. They were dumbfounded because my aunt had died that night from a drunk driver hitting her car. I had described the clothes she was wearing in the accident. To this day, I have had many strange encounters and can tell if a house is haunted and the type of spirit\ energy it is. (ie, male or female, old or young, angry or friendly) I wish it wasn't so as it freaks me out too! lol

Oh, also to whoever mentioned Kids..they say kids and animals can see what most adults cannot because they are innocent, they haven't been told whats real and whats not, they just see what they see completely unbiased.

Alrighty, so I most definatly believe in ghosts, Ive had to many odd things happen not to. I think there are always there and that most everyone has seen them. Like when you swear you saw something and turn around and no ones there, or that feeling of being watched? I believe thats them, and it's just that some people will believe in them and others will just discount it as something odd and forget about it.
When we first moved into our first house in Okotoks, it was an older house with a creepy ass single room basement with a dirt room attached where the water heater and such was. Well my very first night there, my parents and brother went back into Calgary to get the last load od stuff from the old house and I opted to stay at the new house. I fell asleep in the living room until I heard my mom yelling in her mad voice " JESSICA LAINE DUNPHY, YOU GET YOUR ASS DOWN HERE!" Ok, so I don't mess around when my mom is pissed, lol, so i get up and head to the stairs to the basement, just on the steps down, I feel a cold draft (cliche but true, lol) and remember that I am the only one in the house! Yep, ran back upstairs, crawled under the blanket I had in the living room and waited for my family to get back. Nothing else ever came of that for awhile other then it being a creepy story. Although the dogs (we had 2 huge dogs) hated the basement and would sit and bark at the door. Then about almost a year later, but my brother got home from school before me and had pretty much the same thing happen, except it was my mad voice he heard calling him downstairs....but he was home alone and he knew it, he stayed in his room. Aside from that, and the dogs hating the basement, nothing else happened, but damn it was creepy, I was glad when we moved!
I have so many stories that I would end up writing a novel so I won't get into them all, but I will tell 2 others that are my moms. The first one, there is a building in Calgary that is called the Devinish Building.Now back in the day it was an apartment building and at that time there was a man (a well known Cop hater) who went crazy one night and murdered his wife and then killed himself. Now fast forward to about err 25 yrs ago, my mom and dad are dating and a friend of theres is a security guard in the building that is now a shopping center. So he takes them on a tour one night at close, the place is empty for sure and they are doing a final walk through. At this point they start hearing things, footsteps, big crashing sounds etc and at the same time my dad ( who is a cop) starts getting SUPER sick. So they make sure no one is in there and get on the elevator to head down to the main floor and leave. The elevator takes them down to the basement...which it's not suppose to be able to do without a certain key and the doors open to a brick wall. So with a WTF thought they try going back up, the end up on the top floor (getting alittle freaked out yet? ), hit the bottem for the main floor again and again it goes to the basement, but this time the doors open to a cement baement hallway. My mom steps out and looks down the hall and saw a women, my mom took pics, and has since lost them...she was totally curious but knew they needed to get out of there because my Dad was getting sicker and sicker and they didn't know why. So they try the elevator again and this time it takes them to the main floor and out they go. Once outside my dad almost instanly is better. My dad doesn't believe in ghosts and the like, but he has no words of explainations as to what happened that night. And the room where the cop hater killed his wife and himself? Storage now, they can't get paint or wall paper to stay on the walls, it smells funny and is basically just creepy.
K, last one. My mom had my sister when she was 23 I think, but before my sister, she was pregnant. Her and gfs had a sleepover night and decided to play with a Ouija Board ( I hate them!) so naturally, they decided to ask it what the sex of my moms baby was going to be. It spelt out the words " We Are One" and wouldn't reply anything else, my mom had a miscarrige the next day and to this day always wonders if there was any connection between that msg and losing the baby.
I have so many more, but again with the novel, so I'll stop with yes, I totally believe, I even went on a Ghost tour on my batchlorette! lol

I am a great believer in Ghosts or as I like to call them visitors, and yes I have personally had many experiances involving them. I believe they come in many forms and for many different reasons. Not everyone is capable of sensing them either, some people are more in tune with their surroundings than other. Children have a greater capability of sensing them. And it also seems that some families seem to hand the ability down from generation to generation. In my particular family there are those of us who can hear or see them, others who only dream , then other who can only sense and then their are the very few who are able to capable of all of the above. The problem is that sometimes it can completely freak a person out and become a curse. Especailly if you are not sure of whether something is real or not and it takes a few minutes to adjust to understanding the situation.

I don't really believe in ghosts, per se. However, I'm not discounting the possibility of spiritual energies that may manifest themselves in ways that are detectable to humans.

Anything's possible, right?

Wanna hear some creepy things I experienced with Ouiji boards.....

One time my friend and I were using her board and we asked the "ghost" where were they? It spelled out "Purgatory" which at 12 years old neither of us were familar with. We actually had to look it up in a dictionary.

Another time we were using it in a forest with a bunch of other kids. One guy kept calling hoax on it. So we asked it to prove to him it was real. It spelled "Caulodio's fly is down." (He was wearing a long shirt at the time, none of us could see his zipper). He said "No it's not... pffft!" He lifted his shirt and sure enough it was all the way down. Freakin funny!

We were using a board left behind by another student in our Art class. It didn't have an indicator so we improvised. We used a piece of styrofoam shaped like a triangle. All the kids in our class were standing around watching. We were 'talking' to a 16 year old boy from the 1800's who had been run over by horse. We decided to try a little experiment and lifted our fingers ever so slightly from the styrofoam. Enough that the other students could tell we weren't actually touching it. It still moved. Freaky!



I still have a hard time believing something made by Parker Brothers is capable of channeling the dead.

I don't believe in ghosts per say, I believe in God and Satan and angels and fallen angels so I do believe there is 'beings' that we can't see that exist in our world. I believe they are on a different level of existence, and the don't usually touch us humans, but it is a battle going on, Satan and his angels trying to harm humans and get us to refuse God, and Gods angels fighting to protect us from the evil side.
Sounds pretty science fiction if you don't believe in God and Satan etc, but it's what I believe is real.

But when you die, I don't think you can be 'trapped' on earth as a ghost to haunt people, I don't think we can 'talk' to the dead.

I don't WANT to believe. Anyone here read 'The Mothman Prophecies"? (Don't watch the movie, it sucks). That book terrified me.

[deleted account]

I believe that there are spirits, but I'm also partly skeptical. If that even makes sense.

I've had two experiences of my own. Once when I was about 6, we were staying in my grandfather's house for his funeral. I had only seen him a few times in life, because we lived so far away and I was not allowed to go to the funeral. The day before the funeral, I was in what was my grandmother's bedroom sitting on the bed with my grandfather. He was talking to me about stuff like he wished he could have seen me more, he was going to be with my grandmother and he apologised for being a bull headed dummy (apparently he had taken huge issue with the fact that my mother was Japanese, which I didn't know about). He told me about a present he had for me. So I start skipping through the house singing "I know something you don't know!" my parents finally got me to tell them what I was going on about and I told them about the present grandpa had left me.

My father was skeptical, but my mother believed me. So she pulled the stove away from the wall and there, hidden behind it, was a small miner's bag full of silver dollars. I exclaimed there were 16 of them and they were MY present. My mum counted them and indeed there were 16 of them. It totally freaked her out. I was just happy to have a present from my grandpa.

My other experience was the day my mother died. She'd been slowly dying of leukemia and was down to communicating by blinking. She wasn't going to get better and we all faced that fact. I was 14 at the time, sitting on a chair at the foot of her bed. It was quiet in the room and suddenly I see my mum get out of the bed and walk in front of my father and out the room... through the wall! A moment later my father mumbles to me, "she's gone." all I could think to say was, "I know. I just saw her leave... that way." and pointed toward the wall next to him. We were on the third floor of the hospital and she went through the outside wall.

I believe my eldest has had an his own experiences too. I have quite a few photos with a strange orb in them, usually hovering over his left shoulder. When he was a baby, he would giggle and 'talk' to someone I couldn't see. There would be times (like during a nappy change, when my face was close by) when he would be 'talking' with me and then burst out laughing at someone who was obviously standing next to me... because that's where he was looking. Stuff like this went on from about age 6- 18 months. We moved into our current house and I was putting up photos for the first time. I have one of my parents and I, and Seth took no notice of any other photos, but when I got that one out to hang, he started smiling and reaching out. Out of curiosity, I gave it to him and he patted his hand on my mother's image and started babbling.

I've always believed my mother is like my guardian angel and has always been with me. Perhaps that belief has caused me to see things that are merely coincidental, I don't know.

Emily's experience makes my heart soar. I finally had my mother's ashes interred in 2006 (she died in '84) and I didn't really know where to put her. I knew from stories that she had loved living in LA in the early 60's when my father was stationed there and one of her favourite singers is Nat King Cole. So I had her interred in Forest Lawn, near Nat King Cole. My reasoning was that she could have a lot of fun with Nat Cole and a few of her other favourite singers/actors. Now, Liz Taylor has been buried there too. So I like to think that my mother is having the time of her life partying it up with her fave celebs. At the very least, she would be loving listening to her next door neighbour singing.

I do not believe in ghosts per say. But I do not disbelieve the events that have occurred in people's lives that lead them to feel that there are ghosts. I simply think that there is a rational explanation for what has happened that we are simply unaware of at this time. I've got all kinds of wild theories about what causes these episodes, and it may be different things in different cases.

I am a skeptic. So I do not believe in the supernatural (despite my affection for Jensen Ackles ;-p). That does not mean that something did not actually happen or I think that people are making it up. I just figure that there are scientific, rational explanations that we will hopefully understand one day.

My husband believes he saw the ghost of his father, clear as day, shortly after his death. The ghost did not speak but showed my husband through his childhood home to a cupboard, became very upset and then disappeared. My husband was very emotionally upset by the experience. He wasn't "faking it" or anything. And my hubby is a very very very skeptical physicist, so he is not the type to tell ghost stories. Actually, until it actually happened to him, he made fun of people who took that stuff seriously.

Even as a skeptic, I've had experiences that simply can not be explained. But for me, that is exactly what they are, "unexplained". I choose not to define them because I couldn't even begin to do so realistically.

Jessica - I was born and raised in Nevada and we say it Ne-va-da. Many people pronounce it Ne-vah-dah. It's so annoying! lol... Sorry, off topic I know, but I have to get the word out somehow! :)

I believe in ghosts. In fact, I believe in them so storngly that they are on my list of irational fears - they're just creepy IMO! Man, watching that ghost hunters show made me remember going in that building as a child, so I called my mom and she said we went into the adjoining bank as well and there was even MORE creepy stuff in there!

I don't know if i believe or not. I've had some weird experiences but maybe a part of me doesn't want to believe because i'd rather be ignorant to it.



Weird experiences:



When i was about 13 we lived in this house that was about 3 stories high and very old. On the top floor, the landing was always cold even in Summer. My bedroom was on that floor and my sister (who was about 7 at the time) was in the room next to me. One day i heard crying coming from her room, so i went to check on her. She was sitting up in bed, crying to herself and i asked her why. She said she heard something that scared her. So i tried to comfort her and we both lay silently on her bed. After a while, i began to hear someone singing . The windows were shut and it sounded like it was coming from inside the room. It was a weird sound, the song didn't sound familiar and it seemed so near like someone was whispering in my ear. Well i freaked out, i took my sister and we slept in my room that night.



Another weird experience when i was about 15, i woke up because someone was trying to shake open my door knob. I didn't lock it so i didn't know why whoever it was wouldn't just come in. I put my hand on the door knob which was still shaking and opened it. No one was there.



Still not enough to make me believe entirely. I try to think of other possible reasons LOL

I never believed in ghosts, until I had my son.

My younger boy, when he was 3, was riding with his brother and me in the car, going down a road we'd never been on. As we sat at a red light, the little guy looks out the window and exclaims, "Look at all the people!" He was all excited. I looked, and saw nothing at all. Just empty sidewalk with a brick wall, and an empty field. I asked him, "What people?" He said "Those people, right there!" He pointed out the window towards the field. I still saw nothing. I asked him what they were doing, he said, "Walking around... see?" I asked him what they looked like, and he giggled. He said they were funny looking, that their clothes were different from ours. Then he threw me for a loop by saying that one was a soldier, and that one other guy had killed some of the others there. I got really concerned, since this was NOT normal talk for a 3 year old. I questioned him during the whole drive, and he kept answering consistently. As we drove past the spot where he had seen the "people", I realized there was a sign on wall that said the field was a cemetery!!!

I have no explanation for that at all. So, I have to believe he saw someone out there in the field. And no one else could see them.

Yes, I believe in supernatural things... and not just because I wish Sam and Dean would come save me, either ;)

My biggest experience was when my grandma died 6 years ago. We'd gone down to stay with my grandpa while she was in the hospital, and then she passed. That night, my brother and sister and I were sleeping in the living room; my dad grandpa and aunt were in separate bedrooms. The kitchen was just off the living room. While lying there, awake in the middle of the night I started getting the most horrible feeling- just a really terrified, miserable, evil feeling. It was very strong. Then, things started banging around in the kitchen. Not just little creaks here and there that could have been the house settling- I mean pots and pans, chairs moving around, everything. This went on for quite a while and I was so terrified I couldn't move. Brother and sister heard it too. I couldn't bring myself to look into the kitchen, but my brother did and the next day said he saw a shadowy kind of figure that bent in half at the waist and crawled away. OMG! We were so freaked out, it was obviously very evil whatever it was. And its not like my grandma was a bad person or anything, so I think it was a demon or something...

Well, I think that Ghosts/spirits/energy is real. I'm a Bible believing girl...but I also cannot deny my own personal experiences either.
1st experience: I was about 4 or 5 years old, living with my mother, and my 3 year old brother in an apartment (bottom floor). My mom had put us down for a nap, I had my own room. Well, all I remember is that I was looking out my window (straight across from the foot of my bed) sitting on my bed and watching some boys play basketball. All of a sudden this huge bright light started coming down from the sky (daytime) and it preceded to come thru my window (open). I pulled the blanket over me and sat there until it was gone. The next thing I remember is waking up to my bed sitting on the floor out of it's frame!!! and my mom running up the stairs to see if I was ok (I was screaming).
2nd experience: I was 14 years old and out with my boyfriend. We, along with his older sister and her boyfriend, were going to the lake (about 8pm, weekend)...but we had to cross the dam first. Well, the boyfriend of my bf's sister was telling us a 'ghost' story about a man who died up on the dam (something about getting crushed in the control room-big huge gears that controlled releasing the water) so we were all sort of laughing and brushing it off as nothing more than a story. Well, we got to the other side to a park area next to the water. The sister and her bf stayed in the car while me and my bf got out and went to sit on the bench. We sat there talking for about an hour and as I was lying face up on his lap, I remember hearing some keys rattling...and then footsteps (as if it were fall and they were stepping in leaves) but it was summertime! So NO leaves around, plus the trees were a ways back from where we were! and I can remember my bf saying "OMG! don't look!" and I was like "what are you talking about?" and at that moment I look to my right and there is this man wearing a flannel shirt with keys in his hand walking right past us....I was thinking "ok...so what" until I realized I could SEE THRU HIM!! we both freaked out and stood up and watched him walk down to the water and disappear!!! My bf's sister and her bf saw the man too, so I know I wasn't imagining this! Freaky huh?
3rd experience(s): In the house I live in now...we've had some minor things happen. Back when my now almost 6 yr old daughter was about 6 months old, I would put her down for a nap in her crib (in her own room) only to hear her in there laughing and babbling. Well, I would go to check on her and she would be facing the corner of the wall looking up and laughing...and sometimes would be trying to hand a toy to whatever it was she was seeing. Then, last year when she was 5, I was getting a quick shower and left her in the livingroom to read a book. When I came down the hallway to the livingrm , she was staring at me with big, fearful eyes. I was like "what? what's wrong?" and she said "Mommy, I saw a big black shadow in front of the tv...and it floated up to the ceiling and disappeared"....I kept asking if she was sure...and she insisted she was. Okay, then about 6 months ago, my husband was in bed and I was sitting at the computer. All of a sudden he wakes up and says "Sarah, the bed.....it's shaking!".....I started laughing b/c it's common for him to just wake up for no reason freaking out...so I thought he was joking until I leaned over and put my hand on the bed...it really was shaking...I wouldn't say visibly, but it sure was vibrating to my hand. The washer and dryer were NOT on...so nothing could explain this. Also, I was coming into our bedroom one evening and as I walked past the wall to my right, the picture of my daughter (the same daughter that has had her own experiences) started swaying back and forth!!! Like I had took my hand deliberately swayed the picture!! My husband witnessed the whole thing...very strange. I've also had pictures just fall off the wall for no reason.
Those are my experiences.....so far. LOL.

Aw Damn it! I'm watching the show and the first guy to talk (NOT the narrator guy, but one of the team members) mispronounced Nevada - note to all on here NEVER pronounce Nevada the way he did - at least not around someone from Nevada :)

My great aunt used to own the old Goldfield Hotel (in Goldfield, Nevada). We went to visit her one time when I was a kid and for kicks we went poking around one day (the hotel was closed and had been for some time because of disrepair and people said it was haunted - we were staying at my great-aunt's house just outside of town, right next to her gold mine). I am telling you, the things I saw and heard that day were some of the creepiest in my life. I saw what looked like a ball fly across the room, but nothing was there, I saw a shadow that looked like a small boy throw the nonexistant ball and run after it - only to disapear about halfway across the room - and I heard laughter and footsteps in other (unoccupied) rooms a few times while walking around.

Ghost hunters did a show on the hotel. Here's a link to it: http://www.scaryghostvideos.org/90.html (side note - they pronounce Nevada right!!! Woo hoo! You all would NOT belive how many people mispronounce Nevada... It's a big deal to us native Nevadans... lol).

Here's a blog of someone who watched the show highlighting the hotel in Goldfield http://www.skepticalviewer.com/2008/04/2...

The owner, Red Roberts, actually conned my great aunt out of the property months before she died (as well as her gold mine, house and surrounding land). My dad's family tried to fight it in court, but didn't win :(

I believe in ghosts, spirits whatever you want to call them 100% ! I have a few experiences and so does my family my mom has said she has seen ghosts since she was little and so has my grandmother and grandfather.

My experience's are...... When my sister was about 10 she was in her room talking to some one and i walked in and said why are you talking to yourself and shes like im not im talking to a little girl i said yea whatever, well later that night i was watching tv everyone was in bed and i heard my sister talking again and just as i started to walk down the hallway to her a little girl wearing a white dress (night gown) she looked about 7ish had long brown hair (both sisters and mom had short hair) and she walked out of my sisters room to the kitchen and i walked into the kitchen no one was there YEA lets say i slept with my light on for a few months (like that would help anything lmao) we found out later a girl died in that house we were renting she had been sick and died in the house CREEPY!!

After my son was born like a week after we were home alone watching a movie and the baby swing clicked on (you had to turn it pretty hard) started swinging full speed maybe faster because it flew over to its side i took my son jumped the baby gate ( i had a c section) and ran to my room lol we still live in the house it happened in.

I have been grabbed on the shoulder from behind in my Grandparents basement when noone else was in the room. I can't explain it but I still don't believe in the supernatural. Energy is very real though so there could be an explination I will learn about someday. Or maybe my brain was just tricking me.
