Faithdefender, was that your first argument? Oh well. Here goes.
The presence of the anomalies are simple to explain as coincidence, to answer your question. It's quite possible that people who are extraordinarily
powerful in the area of the anomalaous(sp?) brainwaves (IE, the ones that would cause atmospheric disturbance to the immediate area, producing a
'haunting') leave 'fingerprints' on the sites that they profess to have seen 'ghosts'. This means that they leave behind a ripple in the
atmosphere, much in the way that cows leave circles in the pasture when they lie down.
Primary sightings of spirits can be easily explained. Even I, in my state of blissful normalness can get a bad 'vibe' from an area, depending on
several factors, including, but not limited to lighting, ambient sounds, and pre-conceived notions of the 'haunted' area. Our society has several
prerequesites for a site to be 'haunted'. One of these is that it be old, dark, dank, and dingy. Just because my basement looks like the wine cellar
of an old victorian mansion which was the home of a man whom ate little children, doesn't mean that I'm going to have the 'ghosts' of Hannibal
Lecter's victims running around my house.
Simply put; I regard the Idea of ghosts as preposterous. I can only address this from the viewpoint of a living person, as I haven't died yet, but I
think that after all I've heard of how much 'ghosts' destroy the sanity of sensible people, I'd just as soon go to where I'm going, rather than
stick around to hassle my family.
