Hi, I believe in ghosts very much.

News, When ghosts attack.

(CNN) -- Strange things seem to happen when Grant Wilson enters a room.

Human forms materialize in darkened hallways. The dead whisper greetings from beyond the grave. Unseen entities attack and hurl terrified people to the ground.

Not all ghosts attack or harm people. I think there are many spirits that are more helpful then not for those of the living.

I agree, many spirits are more helpful than not. I saw a ghost/spirit in my parent's house. The house was built in the early 1770s and used as a tavern for a time. I was staying there after my first daughter was born, so I think I was just more open emotionally to things at the time. I was coming down the stairs and saw a man in a top hat and tails walking down the hall. I only saw the back of him, but he looked just like a living person, only the clothes were odd. I followed him down the hall where he turned into the dining room and was gone.
My sister-in-law has also seen a woman coming out of the wall. My dad says there was a door there at one time.

Wow, I guess I am the lone non-ghost believer so far. I think there can be unexplained actions, but that they are NOT the result in a past living person manifesting themselves, or "residual energy" from them.

Undecided, leaning towards "no". I personally know seemingly sane people who have claimed to have seen them.
