I have read stories about ghosts but I can't say I believe in them.

I do believe in ghost. We had a ghost in the house I grew up in. They liked to empty dressers. We could sit on the couch and watch shadows go up and down the stairs then they would dump things out. Thanfully Mom and Dad saw it with their own eyes......we may have blamed the ghost a few times when it wasn't them!
This is really scary! I was really thinking ghost stories are just a myth. I hear a lot of them but I have never seen one, so I don't know whether to believe they exist or not. Among all these posts, yours is the scariest!

There are a lot of different opinions about what ghosts are and how they interact with living people. This book is predicated on the idea that they are real and can cause an effect for a living person. Do you believe in ghosts or spirits? Are they good or evil? How do they affect corporeal reality? If you don't believe, did this affect your enjoyment of the book?
I'm agnostic on this. I personally have never had an experience with anything paranormal, but know people who are in no way maladjusted who sincerely affirm that they have had such an encounter. I am inclined to doubt it, but would not rule out the possibility - a true fence-sitter on this issue.

So I am going to tell a story, (it's real, based on an experience as a child).

When I was 4, I was in ICU for 2 weeks with Infantigo, started under my nose, from there made it's way into my blood stream, ultimately shutting down my kidneys, Dr said I had a short time before it would have turned into sepsis.
So sitting in the hospital bed, listening to the beeps and whines of the machines.

According to my parents, I used to see my grandfather, who died just a few short months before I almost lost my life. I would see him standing at the foot of my bed, just staring at me. I think my mom told me, that I had told her, that he had said I would be alright, that it wasn't my time to go yet.

So as creeped out as I was, I do believe in ghosts. I have plenty of other stories but I won't get into them, I could probably write a book. :lol:

I think this a beautiful story. I truly believe that our ancestors that have passed are watching out for us. I think they are our guardian angels.

Why are people so easily fooled by the pseudoscience regarding ghost hutning and the paranormal?

1) Makes for good stories.
2) Yearning to believe in life after death.
3) Thinking ‘connecting’ with the supernatural makes you special.

The mind is easily tricked and people are, generally speaking, gullible by nature.
