I do believe that ghosts exist, to be more exact, entities. I think that there are things that exist, but we can't see them. I don't know why but that's probably because of our brain, just like with the sound, we can't hear all types of sounds, so it only makes sense that we can't see everything too, do you know what I mean?
Personally the only weird thing I had was when I was like 16 years old, I went into my parents room to put the laundry on their bed, I light up the lights and all of the sudden all went black and the light bulb(wtv it is) cracked or something. That shit scared the hell out of me. Now a days nothing else happened except that, and to be honest if something like this or what you said happens to me I just try to calm and enjoy. Although these events might be scary..hey I don't know just try to understand them?
My mom has a friend of 52 years old that is a medium or something. The dude looks at you and he knows everything about you, just with one glare, pretty scary shit. Just by standing near him I was kinda uncomfortable because I was thinking some private stuff and that.. lol
Btw, those things might be happening for several reason, either the spirit is just there passing throw, or when that house was built, it was built under a grave of someone or something and that sometimes can disturb the ambient you know? But who knows!

To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
I used to not believe in such things, and thought anyone who saw them were simply delusional. I've come to realize that's an arrogant position. There's an infinite number of things in this universe we do not understand. I've never encountered a ghost, but there are people in my family who vehemently swear that they have. Any "logical" explanation I tried to present to them has been rejected. They experienced something very significant. What it was, I cannot say.
You people are no better than the crazy religious fanatics that will beat you to death with their doctrine. You're all the same.

We don't know if they ever will find proof or won't and those that say why won't are arrogant and those that say they most certainly will are equally arrogant. Maybe less so if they have experienced something. Haven't we learned yet? Just because all we assume to be true is currently true and all we assume that hasn't been found true is false is ridiculous. At one point in history blah blah blah, then we learned more and blah blah blah. It keeps going on and on like this.
THIS IS IT THIS IS ALL THERE IS! OH WAIT WE FOUND NEW STUFF IT'S NOT HOW WE THOUGHT! 100 years later repeat.

Edit: And you think the guy i said was full of shit isn't indeed full of shit up to his throat? He said that some guy that looked at him knew everything about him, without explaining how he (the poster) found out the guy indeed found out everything about him. I mean, what the frak.

I'm gay I don't go around randomly hating on ALL Christians because many of them aren't how you would think they are.
Also our technology constantly advances. It's possible such a thing could exist, we simply don't know.
I neither believe or disbelieve I simply have no real opinion on the matter. It is possible, but I have never experienced anything and I do not dismiss every person. I keep an open mind to the possibility. To say it's absolutely impossible simply isn't... knowable.
What I find so disgusting is that... a person simply asked if anyone ever had a similar experience and what do we get? A bunch of people bashing others and debating belief when this isn't what was asked to begin with. The amount of dickery on this topic is just absurd to me and rude.

What I find interesting, particularly with people who do/do not believe in ghosts, is the mob mentality that can change very drastically when you are amongst an imbalanced group. Its funny aswell that the post above me is somehow about gay marriage(I dont care to read exactly how that came into play) because the same mob mentality often comes into play in those arguments aswell depended on how balanced the group is.
For instance, if you have two "believers", two "non", and a few no opinions, and you bring up ghosts, both parties with throw some vague I dos and and I donts, maybe an odd personally story or two, but you dont see that strong fighting "IM RIGHT GODDAMMIT!!!" determination. Drop even one, or add to either group, and as soon as they prevailing party realizes it has the numbers it attempts to completely dominate the mindset of the other parties, weather it be the neutrals or opposite, usually the neutral first. It quickly changes from "I do, but I could be wrong" to "I do, and you're an idiot for not agreeing with US". I realize it is simple human behaviour, but it really is interesting, and I wonder what particularly it is about issues like these that makes issues demonstrate it so drastically. Is it because of the split between them? People spend so much time in crowds that already agree on most issues, that they simply see eye to eye on most things? Or is that theres no rhyme or reason for who is for/against either issue, someone from any background can fall into either category very easily from a few person passed events. Very interesting in any case.
I do understand that people do not believe such a stories and frankly, i wouldn't believe that if you told me that you have seen the Flying Spaghetti Monster and the true way of a life is that of a Pastafarian But i still wouldn't go on and be so damn rude to you, i would simply ignore you and let you believe what you want to.
Point is that if someone has seen something that is as clearly in front of you as a normal human being would be standing a few meters from you, there is no way to convince that person otherwise. You do not have to believe it without any proof, that would be stupid, but calling that person a liar is equally stupid.
Haven't we been through this already? What is the point in having a conversation if you by your own admission admit at the very beginning of the argument that you will not change your mind no matter what? Weren't you arguing for an open mind? Can you not really see how you are contradicting yourself?Point is that if someone has seen something that is as clearly in front of you as a normal human being would be standing a few meters from you, there is no way to convince that person otherwise.

Not all conversations are about proving that you are right, having a conversation doesn't always have to be an argument.
