I haven't seen anything myself yet, but I live in an old village where part of the Civil War took place...and down the road (on my jogging route) is a church that they used as a hospital.

I expect to see something on a daily basis. But not yet!

Never saw one in all the time Ive been living, and, I dont believe in them either LOL...

Those ghost stories are for frightening kids, and getting ratings on shows that promote ghosts...

Normal people wouldnt believe such nonesense, unless one reached out and touched them, or they personally see them, thierselves..

The proof is in the pudding... No ghost.. Then, they dont exist.

I wish you wel...

Jesse

I wouldn't be so quick to label ghosts as "nonsense" if I were you, friend! If your reasons for dismissing the possibility are religious reasons, then I have to remind you that, with God, all things are possible. And if your reasons are scientific, I have to point out that some of the finest physicists in the world are convinced there are parallel realms - which is, in my opinion, where ghosts are from.

Just never saw a ghost, and, I dont believe in spirits haunting us...

OK, I can watch a spooky movie and have chills run up and down my spine, but, thats Hollywood, with thier fabulous technology...

As I said, if "I" dont see them, then I cant verify they exist, and, Im skeptical anyways.

OH, I know that 'such things' do exist 'biblically', and people swear by this or that, that they have seen an actual ghost, but, I wont ever claim to anything I dont see

I wish you well...

Jesse

My family lived in a bungalow that belonged to my parents, near their home, we were living there temporary until our house was built, many strange things happened such as doors closing when they were open, feeling (not hearing footsteps at night)and other things, but never was scared. I had a workspace set up upstairs to read, etc in and since upstairs was not heated, I would leave the door open so the heat from downstairs would go up....I would walk downstairs many a time, and go back upstairs 10 minutes later and the door would be shut....not just eased up, but latched...

When we were moving , mentioned to wife, this house has some strange habits, she looked at me wide eyed and told me she had been locked out of the house several times when she was outside.......

The house was the scene of two violent murders...and my sister moved the house, remodeled it and she and family are living in it now. I remember both murders, as they happened as I was growing up, the house was one that my parents rented.

Not sure about ghosts, but after those things happening to me, and my wife, without us comparing things until afterward, there was something definitely supernatural going on.

Like I said however, I never felt scared, just spooked.

My daughter's school is haunted. It's the same school they first built about 15 years ago.

I remember when I was volunteering for a Santa's Shop at the school and I was left alone to tend to moving the toys around. The shop was set up in the abandoned part of the school. I started hearing lockers shutting slightly or knocking, I caught myself looking out the door a lot because of movement. Some of the teachers told me about what happened to them; printers turning on and off, chalk boards changing positions (old sliding chalk boards).

My town is a small village. There are only a few buildings here but most are haunted. There's even one building that is about 5 miles from the village that looks just creepy as hell. The outside of the building is all black, it looks like it was burned down or had a big fire a long time ago. The windows are all smashed or broken out.

I am very interested in this kind of thing. I actually lived in a house a while ago that was active. The only thing that happened there was my bed kept on moving while I was laying on it, my stuff was moved around, lights where turning on and off at night, things fell off the shelves.
