    Several of the Denizens of the USMB Coffee Shop admit to being fans of the popular TV series "Ghost Hunters". With Halloween coming a week from now and images of black cats, witches, and spooky scenes prominent in every store we enter, I was just wondering:

    Do you really believe there are such things as ghosts? A spirit world that exists among us? Have you ever seen a ghost? Or are you a hardcore skeptic or non believer?

    One of the more fascinating places the Ghost Hunters have visited is the historic St. James Hotel at Cimarron NM.

    A photo of the upstairs hallway and claimed to show one of the ghosts who live there is here:

    And a snip from an official ghost hunter write up:

    So, are you a believer? Or no?

    Let's keep this thread friendly please folks.

    I've been ghosthunting quite a few times. Certainly I've seen things that I cannot explain... and I'm always the one who can find the rational explanations. In fact, I have video clips of some stuff that's happened on our ghosthunts that, even when I watch it back, I think 'that's got to be faked'... and I was the one filming, and no one else had access to the film.

    Weird shit.

    I think the hotel could have some asbestos on that floor, and the owners are getting perks from fronting with the ghost balderdash.

    I think intuitive powers are the gift of some people, but I have a hard time believing ghosts roam around the earth after life.

    Some of the people who believe in ghosts seem to really get into it. I don't know what to make of that. About all I've ever known about people I knew who died were my own memories of them.

    I have to vote no, I don't believe in ghosts. I do believe in memories, though.

    I don't think I can appropriately articulate into words how I feel on the subject... (I'm the only 'open mind' so far) But I don't rule out the possibility.

    What are we, really? Electrical, chemical impulses flowing through a bag of meat... I have to entertain the possibility that in certain cases, those impulses don't die with the body and "Live" on in some other medium for a period of time... Nawmean?

    But as far as having seen one, heard or 'Felt' one, no it's not happened to me.

    I haven't done any serious ghost hunting but I used to play with a Ouiji board when I was a kid. I am 100% certain that almost all of that activity was manipulated by those playing, but there was one time I asked a question that only I knew the answer. And I didn't participate in the activity. Those playing, however, without any one of them possibly knowing the answer, spelled it out. And that did creep me out.

    It was never duplicated, however.

    I will have to say however, standing in a darkened hallway of the St. James Hotel, with no human companion there with me, I had an overwhelming sense that I was not alone.

    I have not personally seen a ghost that I know of.

    Me either. I have seen pictures but although they look so real, I just attribute it to film noise or digital blurs.. I have always been afraid to watch ghost stories and yet I don't really know whether I believe.

    If I had seen anything, I might be happy to know that there is an afterlife..
