    My father belongs to a paranormal group here. He has captured awesome evidence of ghosts. I hope one day he will let me join his team. ;-)

    And has the evidence been independently verified?

    Just recently, he investigated a building that used to be a school and is now an art center. The workers in that building have seen a little girl in a white dress, water running in the bathrooms, voices, footsteps. He caught the voice of a little girl saying, "Hi," on the first floor. He also investigated the Maple Wood Hotel in Lily Dale, NY, Rolling Hills Asylum in Genesee County... His team is still new...

    I, personally, am very skeptical about the existence of ghosts/hauntings, but I have a friend who investigates paranormal activity like your father and is very much convinced of its reality.

    Definitely intriguing.

    No. I don't think so. If I had, I doubt I would still be skeptical. Have you?

    We used to see shadows in a house we used to live in. It was built in 1875, so who knows who was there before us. One time, when I was younger, my sister and I were playing in her room, and we both heard a voice whisper her name through one of the heater vents. So we ran downstairs to see if it was my father playing a trick, and it wasn't. He was sitting in a chair out on the porch reading. He didn't even know what we were talking about.

    That kind of stuff totally freaks me out and I think I'd rather believe it doesn't exist, even if it does. ;) lol

    Well, it's not the dead I'm afraid of. It's the living.

    A guy that used to sell me kebabs finished up a murderer and I thought he was a nice guy. You just never know.

    If you are going to fear either, fear both.
    You don't need to fear all the living, just the bad ones.
    And among those who have died, if they should have been feared while living ... well, I am sure they are no nicer as a ghost.

    I think television hype on paranormal shows makes people overreact to noises and shadows that can be easily be explained. And after movies like Paranormal Activity come out ... suddenly everyone who has watched it thinks their home is haunted. The imagination under the influence of Hollywood can created a lot of "activity" in a home.

    Still, I tend to be a believer of "where there is smoke, there must be a fire". I do think there is another realm beyond the physical. But I am not interested in inviting them in or going after them. "Live and let unlive" is how I feel about it.

    And I've had a bit of the unexplained happen to me, though not in such a Hollywood style. I've heard my name called when there was no one around. I was in the kitchen one day (I live in a multi-level home) and I heard, what I thought was my three grandsons, running around upstairs in the master bedroom. I went to the stairs and was about to yell up at them to come down immediately .... when I noticed they (and the dog) were all sitting in the living room behind me playing video games. No one was upstairs. Go figure?

    Our dog is a ghost. Really. One day my husband was home alone. He let the dog out to do his business. Then my husband went to the bathroom to do his own business. When he came out of the bathroom, the dog was back in the house. The door to the backyard is a very heavy glass sliding door. My husband had shut it. We still do not know how our dog got back in. Dog walks through walls??

    There isn't anything extraordinary about our home. It isn't that old, built in the 70s. It's in a nice neighborhood. No weird history.

    I do not feel threatened or afraid in my home. We just have had about a half dozen "Hmm. Weird." moments, but we blink and move on. Actually my brother in law is half Native American and follows much of the traditions. We've learned about cleansing and purifying with salt, sage, and sweetgrass. Since cleansing our home it has been pretty quiet.

    I live in Northern Nevada and in the Reno / Carson City / Virginia City are there are a number of old buildings reported to be haunted. One building in Virginia City was officially declared haunted by one of those groups from one of those TV shows that ghostbust.

    "If you are going to fear either, fear both."

    I'm having a bit of a problem parsing this.

    In sleep, has no one ever dreamed? Or heard a voice without a dream? Odd if not.

    Garbage in, garbage out. I think the gist is if one is "evil" in life, then they will be so in death.
