How do you feel about them?
Let democracy decide!
The disembodied, unquiet spirits of the dead
Some scientific thing that we don't understand yet
Optical illusions triggered by emotional disturbance
A load of shit, when you're brown bread you're toast
ive seen 4 and heard a lot more
My great aunt is one.
I don't believe but then I don't not believe. The burden of proof here lays squarely with the ghosts to prove themselves. It's a bit like the Isle of White, until I went there I was undecided as to whether or not it actually existed.
If I had to pick a favourite kind of someone elses ghost it would definately be a chap with his head under his arm, or those fellas in Lord o Rings - they're pretty cool.
I know your game Lionel! I can see what you really are!
No offence, Eric, but because of your interests in all things dark, you may be far more receptive to a ghostly experience: whether this is because you are more open to see something, or more open to think you’ve seen something is a matter for debate.
What were your experiences, what did you think at the time and what do you think now?
I went for the first one 'cos its more errrrmm .... romantic.

Ghosts are rubbish. Used to see loads of them in the 70s on things like Arthur C Clarkes Mysterious World but then they dissapeared. What's happened to the good old 70's poltergiest? They've all retired!
Now its all about Yvette Fielding taking Girls Aloud around Warwick Castle to look for 'orbs' and that scouse chap Derek A-liar talking to himself.
ive seen my grandad walk past me when i was 9, i saw someone walk throught my bedroom while i was listening to music in the dark as a teenager, saw something at the top of the stairs stairing at me, but also felt things and heard things, but i also used to scare myself as a child and see things in patterns, wall paper, clouds but they were scary faces rather than bunny rabbits.
so actually its probably just my over active imagination.
Is this the kind of 70s ghost you had in mind?
Late at night, I think I see ghosts all the time, but it's just tiredness and smeared lenses.

yeah my dad said that he was probably watching over us, which to me as a kid was possibly the scaryest thing to have said. i would have prefered him to have just said he is dead you wont see him again.
ever since i was a kid (before he died) ive always felt that there was somthing following me watching out for me or just waching me, i hate it.
im probably just a bit loopy or something.
I believe its something scientific we dont know enough about, as there's probably not much money to be made from it once we have discovered what it is. I am quite fascinated by the whole thing, EVP etc. I'm convinced of 'the Stone Tape' theory that certain places asborb sounds etc but its home baked and I did do the ouija board too many times as a teen.
Sorry, I think it's toss.
Dull, but there you go.
Hallucinations possibly, over-active imaginations, a desire to believe, people lying and mistaking perfectly natural phenomena for something unexplainable.
I think it's a mixture of all of these. Right, got to go and pick up the living without finding out first-hand whether there's life after death on London's cycle paths.
i beleive but theres never been any proof ....tho i knew a vampire once
'Swear I am evil when Ive had a few'
I'm a ghost of my former self if that helps.
.....and I think that my dad has reappeared in the form of a large black crow. Hope there's no shrinks out there!

I have hallucinations at night & i know how convincing & realistic these are to me at the time. So I personally deduce that the entire phenomena of ghost sighting is peoples minds playing tricks on them coupled with an entire industry of shysters & con men preying on people in times of emotional turmoil and of course attention seeking oddballs
I'd be happy to see conclusive proof but it just doesn't exist
and if Yvette Fielding hasn't found one yet then nobody will
Ive voted for the last option.
"Hangin' out with you two is like partying with Fugazi"
Face it people there are no ghosts, its all creaking pipes and static electricity etc.
Last option for me. We're animals, and we're related to every other living thing. There aren't chimp ghosts or sparrow ghosts or sunflower ghosts or human ghosts. Just misfiring human brains, either a bit mad or simply mistaken (although there are surely very good evolutionary reasons for why we both see things in nature that aren't there - basic survival, for instance - and for why many of us still hold supernatural beliefs). Like all other living things, we don't possess 'souls' (apart from JB, of course), and therefore after we're dead there's nothing left of us to haunt with. I loved ghost stories as a kid, and still do, however as a serious topic of discussion I find it as ridiculous as believing in any other kind of fairy.
you dont belive in fairies either, huh.
