and even if I hadn't seen a ghost, which I have. I would have to consider the reality of the phenomenon being real simply because of their sheer
tenacity and persistance in existing no matter how secular and materialistic we've become. I could argue that the fact that ghosts are still seen and
experienced quite often even in the most atheist countries in the world suggests it's not just vivid imaginations, hallucinations or superstition.
If ghosts really didn't exist I would wager that people wouldn't still report seeing them. If it really just was superstition the belief would have
been relentlessly stamped out by rabid reductionists in extremely secular countries like Sweden, but they appear nonetheless.
While some cases can be explained away as hallucinations, many of them simply can't, not when there is poltergeist activity and the entity is
manipulating the physical world. That's unexplainable to science.
In my experience people that laugh at the notion of paranormal phenomena tend to view it as extremely vague and subject to interpretation.. like it's
only paranoid people that interpret creaking houses as evidence of a haunting.
On the contrary, paranormal phenomena may be very obvious, even to a staunch scientist that considers it to be flimflam.
I would also have to consider the serious implications of stout skeptics turning into believers after experiencing paranormal phenomena, I bet
there's a bunch of them here.
I also consider reincarnation research as evidence, particularly the amazing and documented stories of people remembering past lives and later
confirming that the spontaneous memories they remembered really happened.
I think there's enough evidence to decide for yourself even if you haven't experienced anything, if you're truly objective and open minded I don't
see how you can come to any other conclusion.. and I long for the day that mainstream science catches on. I think there's a lot of black projects
dealing with the paranormal, remote viewing and astral projection programs would only scratch the surface. I mean, TPTB can't not know about the huge
pink elephant.. we know they've had these types of projects. They most certainly know.. especially since they're very into the occult.
