    Halloween generally triggers a lot of television programming re ghosts and other paranormal phenomenon and this year has been no exception. We watched several hours of documentary on ghost investigations this week, another on the world's most haunted places, and Dan Akroyd and his father were on George Noury's "Coast to Coast" this week telling about their investigations into this matter.

    Nevertheless, according to Rasmussen this week, only 23% of us believe in ghosts.

    Do you?

    I have a feeling that % is much higher than 23%. Except people rather not admit it. :lol:

    As for me, I believe in Ghosts.

    All the shows I've seen this week on Ghost have been more of a comedic relief then drama. I think these shows do a disservice in the true study of anything paranormal in nature.

    I think residual energy is the key to people seeing Ghost, like a tape recording...for whatever reason at a certain time the circumstances is just right for someone to have an experience. I think that is more of a common sense approach and I wish these stupid shows would stop hyping shit for ratings so some real study can take place. Right now if there was ANY legit findings nobody would believe it.

    I have not personally seen or experienced a ghost that I know of, but I have heard testimony from well educated people of good reputation who state that they have experienced phenomenon that they describe as 'ghosts' or at least activity for which there is no other explanation. Such people are not given to wild emotion, telling stories, eccentricity, or hallucinations.

    I therefore choose to keep an open mind on the subject.

    How many believe in the Holy Ghost?

    I prefer to believe in the "Friendly Ghost".
