    Ghosts!?!

    Now for the question. Who believes in ghosts?

    A good friend of mine put a picture of a girl that was see through on his facebook. He swore up and down his house was haunted. One night during a UFC pay per view a handful of people saw it and he finally got a picture. I have asked him numerous times and he still swears it is real. I still say it was something photoshopped but it definitely is his house. His mom posted on there apologizing for not believing him all the years he has told her. He is 32 now and he was living there by himself since he was 16. I got the picture for everyone to see.



    My aunt has told me many of stories about the house that her and my cousins live in. The guy she used to be married to was a Vietnam Vet and he said there was a couple of things to happen that made his hair stand up worse than anything he experienced in Vietnam.

    At the plant I do security work at there has been 3 people die that we know of. The 4th died a couple of months ago. Just fell over one afternoon in the smoking area outside. The next day it rained and where his body was the ground was dry. Freaked alot of people out. One of the guys that worked in the lab took pictures. There has always been weird unexplainable things happen. It is one thing working nights when people are here. It is another thing to work nights when you are the only person in a 2,000,000 + square foot facility. Hearing what sounds like someone walking thorugh the offices. Doors shutting. Doors being opened after they were closed and no one was hear. Machines running though no one is working inside the plant.

    Now I asked because. I work the 3rd shift and there was a woman that worked in receiving and a guy that worked in the chemical lab. Now he retired so it is usually just the woman in the plant and I am in the offices. I will periodically go check on her because she is very heavy set and the last thing I want is for her to have a freaking stroke or heart attack. I have been back there talking to her after she has unloaded the truck and we (including the truck drivers0 have sworn sometimes we see something out of the corner of our eyes.

    The other day I went back there to check on her and she was shaken up. She told me she actually saw the guy that had died in the snoke area outside standing in the plant looking at the door that lead outside to that area. She had goose bumps on her arms and you could see the hairs standing up. She swears it was him because he was the only person to wear a fishing/photography vest in the plant everyday.

    tonight I was sitting here watching the cameras. Outside the office at the main door it looked like someone was shinging a flashlight on the sidewalk or like a white trash bag blowing. I get up walk outside and don't see a thing. So I walk back in and still see it. The monitor nor camera is messed up. So I called Dora and a guy named Todd to come and check it out. We were sitting there and it did it again. So i walked outside and stood in front of the camera. They said you could see it around my leg area, but I never saw anything. Right after I walked in and it completely stopped.

    I don't believe in ghost. I have heard if you don't believe you are more apt to see one. I have been to places people say were haunted but I have not seen anything.

    I am no expert, but I know for a fact, that being around areas that are high in electrical current, can affect the mind and body......I have lived in my current home for approx. 12 years....for the first 5, no problems, after that, everytime my wife or I went down by the washer and dryer, we would have the hair stand up on the back of our neck, and have the feelings that someone was there watching.....one day, I actually saw a person dart across a doorway downstairs, and could describe him from head to toe, even though it was only for a split second.........I have a 75 year old aquaintance, that is a dowser, and I have seen him do some incredible things......he told me to take a piece of thick wire, and wrap it into a coil, and place it against the wall, facing out, in front of the washer dryer......I did check it out, and this IS an area that has high electrical current ie. plugs, breaker box, etc.........I did what he suggested, and it hasen't happened since....a little hair thing once in a while......he said that it draws current away from the area, and directs it out the wall towards outside...if it works, who am I to argue?

    Did it work or did your mind just "think" it worked? The mind is a very powerful and convincing thing.

    I've seen some things people would call ghosts. More like a guardian angel in one case. Once, I was very sick when I was a boy and so was my whole family. My father was especially ill. (flu got us all at the same time). Well, I'd woke to find that I couldn't open my eyes. Massive eye boogers had sealed my eyelashes together and I was kind of freaking out. So, I stumbled my way to my parents room while rubbing my eyes and when I got there, I called out for my mom and dad. Right then, my eyes came unstuck and I opened my eyes to see what appeared to be an angel over my dad, praying. It looked as though it was startled, turned it's head toward me and then vanished. Leaving only that sun spot like outline in the air over their bed.

    I've told this story to others and some are quick to believe. Others have said it was probably a result of medication and having just rubbed the crap out of my eyes, possibly distorting my vision a bit.

    Either way, I "know" what I saw. What I don't know... is if it was real or not.

    That is what I asked him. They drink, but they don't smoke unless you count cigs.

    Well, to look on the bright side, at least she is a pretty, hopefully friendly ghost, as opposed to an evil chain dragging ghost, or a grotesgue headless ghost that moans, beware!, beware! I'd ask him about the history of the house, usually very old house's with a deep and dark past contain ghosts', especially one in which a killing or massacre was involved for those who which reside.

    I voted 'not sure' but I did hear a comment on TV one time about this subject that went something like "Some people say ghosts have to be seen to be believed. Others thing they have to be believed to be seen". Never had any paranormal experiences my self but I try to keep an open mind about it. Photography can show some strange things that might have perfectly normal explanations. Also photos are awfully easy to manipulate. There were some really good fake photos from many years ago and the technology of today makes them even easier to do so I tend to be skeptical of photographic evidence. Not saying your friend manipulated the photo but there might be a perfectly rational reason for that photo, too.

    The thought of someone, whom I cannot see, walking around in my home, terrifies me... dead or alive doesn't make much difference.

    From what he has told me over the years, is that stuff gets moved around, he hears noises. He told me awhile back that he had see a ghost and I laughed and he described her looking like that. It isn't any girl he knows or knew. It took 6 years after he told me to get the picture. Him his girlfriend, and 2 of their friends said they saw her there just staring at them for minutes. he was able to get his cell phone and get the picture.

    Now I am not saying they are full of BS. To me one of them could have done some computer editing to get that. Like I said though I don't believe in ghost.

    Well, there is only one way to find out. Invite yourself over to spend a couple of nights to see for yourself if the house is haunted. Wooooh!

    I voted unsure. Iv never seen any real undeniable proof, but have certianly been places wher just suddenly hair stands ip and u go from perfectly comfertable to feeling the strong urge to promptly re-locate. Also was an experience with my friend and i alone camping in the middle of nowhere at about 2 am on a freezing, rainy night, heard a small dog yspping nearby and a mans voice yelld for it got up and looked nobody there no tracks no way in or out other than a couple miles walk or a gravel road which we would have heard a vehicle on so i dunno

    I've heard for a long time that 'orbs' in pictures are ghosts. I am a professional photographer for 7 years now and a hobbyist for decades before that. I take LOTS of pictures, many at night.

    I've never seen a single orb or oddity in a picture. Till 2 years ago.
    My family went camping at Gettysburg and we were in the devils den area after dark -with lots of other tourists. I took many pictures and many had orbs in them. Only here. I can't explain it.

    I believe especially since there is more evidence now.The orbs are suppose to be energy balls.Alot can be explained scientifically.There is alot that cant.I believe especially since going to Sloss Furnace in Birmingham,Ala.The site is full of trajic deaths.Souls with unfinished business.From what I understand there are 2 types,residual and intelligent.Some seem to be demonic and some to be angelic in nature.I grew up listening to stories as La. has a rich history of vodoo and legends.The ghost of newborn unbaptized children are known to be mischevious in nature.I firmly believe in God so by saying that I also believe in demons.It is an act of faith and both go hand -in -hand.Like anything else a little truth and an active mind create fantastic stories.

    I do.I never really saw anything that didn't put a question in my mind about an explanation but I have felt the hair stand up and suddenly get an odd feeling and chill like something passed through me,and that annoying feeling someone is watching you when nobody is around, but....

    I was 15 or 16 when my grandfather died so after my Mother and I swapped places with my Grandmother (step) I had his bedroom.One night I was laying there waiting to fall asleep and heard my name as the foot of the bed next to my feet went down like somebody sat down on it.I immediately sat up and was staring at my gun cabinet that he made me and saw nothing.Then,the the foot of the bed and my feet raised back up like they should be.Freaked me out at first but figured it was him checking in.The house was the first on the street right next to the graveyard (about 40 acres worth),sitting at the kitchen table I could look across the driveway at his and my blood Grandmother's grave.My Mother always told me when I was about 3 I'd go sit on her gravestone and talk to her.

    I believe in them,and that we aren't alone in the universe.

    lol, looks like Elmo crapped his pants.

    In all honesty, people have been searching for ghosts forever and just about every single high profile pic or evidence that has been presented has been debunked. I assume the pic was taken on a cell phone? There are some cool apps that will add in a realistic ghost to any photo...

    I would love to see a scientific study done at places such as auschwitz-birkenau or a death camp.I believe in spirits and phenomena exist solely cause they cannot all be disproven.Yes some or over active imagination or natural phenomana but ther is alot that cant.I think it is faith based.
