I wouldn't call them primitive or uneducated...in fact the 1 tribe that I read about the Jarawa tribe (who are admittedly primitive) had a 100%
survival rate...I hardly call that undereducated...I call that very smart in terms of what was happening.
I think what we are seeing is a perfectly natural reaction to a tragedy that we can not relate to. Nearly 200,000 dead (last I heard, feel free to
correct me if I'm wrong) and families torn apart.
I think we are seeing people who are trying to recover, while trying to grieve, while trying to comprehend what has happened to them. They are
grasping for every hope that they can that it's going to be alright and it shouldn't suprise anyone that they're seeing ghosts. They are
remembering their families and friends and hoping they are ok and the sightings are most likely a psychological response acting as a coping
While I do not discount for 1 second the possibility of haunts in the devestated area, I think it's way to close to be able to tell anything one way
or the other yet. People are going to be scarred for a long time and some may never fully recover. Give it time...in 2 years if there are still
several sightings around those areas then there may actually be something.
For now, I think it's just people trying to cope.

forgot to put the link for the article about the tribe who had everyone survive.
here ya go
