If we can't prove they DON'T exist, how can we prove they do.
For thousands of years people have seen ghosts.
For thousands of years people have seen UFO's.
For thousands of years people have been seeing bigfoot/yeti/sasquatch.
For thousands of years people have believed in God.
Now, most people will automatically reject the first few and accept the last as being true. Yet, there is absolutely no proof that there is a God.
But we don't look at people who believe in God as being crazy.
Little children that don't even know what ghosts are talk to them. They've had absolutely no influence from adults telling them ghosts are real yet
3, 4, and 5 year olds talk to imaginary friends and deceased relatives all the time.
I believe that only under certain conditions can ghosts be seen by the average person, but you would have to believe in other dimensions to believe
that (though other dimensions are strongly considered to be true by quantum physicists).
Maybe we can't prove they are real because we simply lack the scientific technology to do that. We haven't exactly unlocked all the secrets to
There are people who see ghosts everywhere all the time, but you would of course rebut that as saying they are lying or crazy. Some only see them
when their energy is strong and some just don't see them at all.
Honestly, why are you trying to convince all of us that they AREN'T real?
Why does it seem to upset others when people believe in ghosts?
Is it hurting you? Does it hinder you from living your life in some way? You may think I'm crazy but it doesn't affect you and I can guarantee you
if you met me on the street you would think I was extremely normal. My beliefs in the paranormal, metaphysical don't define who I am and how I
interact with the world. They are just simply one more fractal part of me.
I'm not trying to convince you they are real. I am simply answering some questions that you asked for answers to. But why do people feel it
necessary to convince believers not to believe?
I also always find it fascinating when people who believe in God, angels, demons and the like automatically dismiss others as loony when someone
claims to have seen one of those. Was Moses crazy? How bout Abraham, Jesus, Mary, Joseph? You see where I'm going with this....
