I think that the problem with these types of topics- ghosts, aliens etc, are that people are too closed minded and unwilling to accept any evidence,
no matter how exceptional it is. These people need to have their own personal experience for themselves, and those of us lucky(?) enough to have had
these types of experiences can do nothing to convince them otherwise. I guess we have these experiences partly because we are more open minded, and
most likely more sensitive to these things.
I worked at a haunted movie theater, and it was a big joke about the "ghost" in the projection booth. I believed people, but many others did not and
thought the witnesses were just crazy or stupid. I actually saw this thing, a big black mass of shadow, and it physically hit a movie platter right
behind me as i was leaving the area. I then didnt just believe those other peoples stories, I was now a part of the stories.
I think its just about being open to things, and accepting what you see and experience instead of trying to come up with "rational" explanations for
them. I am sure that most people, even the biggest skeptics, have had an experience they could not explain, but somehow convinced themselves that
there was a logical explanation, just to get over it and maintain their belief system.
To the OP, if you truly want to know if ghosts are real, open yourself up to the idea and go looking for them. Find local areas that are said to be
haunted, or maybe a friends house that has a ghost. Just be open to it and I am sure you will get something, even if its just the strong feeling of a
presence around you. It can be very strong, so be ready with your "logical explanation" to ensure that you dont get too scared
