Ghosts or reflection of imaginations?

    Some believe that every red streak or overexposure on film is a ghost. most don't believe in ghosts at all. have you had experiences with ghosts/angels or anything associated with life after death or do you believe most photos around of ghosts are an elaborate hoax with a trick of the camera by the photogrophers hand?

      some nuances can be attributed to light, reflection, and/or lens flare. However some different colored objects that appear in the same general vicinity (like a home) in photographs, may very well be something paranormal.  A few TV based references suggest that orbs or objects that are green in hue are negative, and the same is said about dark/black shadows too. Who knows? Personally, I haven't had any experiences outside what I can explain, but perhaps someone else can share. Good topic btw.

      I think that ghosts/spirits are definitely hanging around these days...have had some incredible encounters that cannot be explain in any other way...but I also think that some people like to use film to play hoaxes...perhaps it's best to just cultivate a certain nonchalance towards it all and not make too big of a deal about it...

        The fact that some things may appear inexplicable at first does not mean we automatically assign it to be a ghost when no immediate terrestrial explanation is at hand.

        That's no different from a religionist claiming, "God did it"  smile

      I am a psychic medium so I would have to say yes I believe in the paranormal and supernatural because I have witnessed countless oddities my whole life on the subject. I write about my paranormal experiences on hub pages.

        If you had your psychic abilities tested and they were real, there is a Nobel Prize waiting for you. Of course, many other Nobel Prizes would have to be taken away from a vast array of scientists who discovered the very laws of the universe that your skills would violate. smile

          I have published a lot of my own hubs on the subject of ghosts and the paranormal.

          I have saw ghosts and shadow people all my life as have many other people I know. Recently we investigated a old closed down nursing home and captured a mans voice saying " Oh God Please Help Me "

          Its interesting to note that some people can see ghosts and hear things while other people can not. Why its like that I don't know it just is.

          But some people will tell you ghosts don't exist. But I can tell you from my own personal experiences that ghosts are very real and most are the spirits of a person who has lived. No they are not demons.

          Quite often in places where great tragedy has happened you will find ghosts or other paranormal activity.

            How that supports the existing of the paranormal would be the same as the people who believe Scientology is real just because it's written in a book.



            Uh-huh.



            I think that says more about those who allegedly see and hear those things in regards to mental health.



            You can tell me they are real? If I turn to science, it tells me those things can't possibly exist without violating a number of physical laws. Since science is based on evidence and experimentation and the paranormal is based on testimonials, the paranormal hasn't a leg to stand on and we are left wondering about the mental health of it's claimants.



            Yet, nothing of the sort has ever been reported. smile

              Hi Earnesthub ,he did belive ina higher intelligence.

              "I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details."

              # "I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice."

              # "God is subtle but he is not malicious."

              "God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically."

              "God gave me the stubbornness of a mule and a fairly keen scent."

              "There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there. All great discoveries have involved such a leap."

              I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know his thoughts. The rest are details.

              I see a pattern, but my imagination cannot picture the maker of that pattern. I see a clock, but I cannot envision the clockmaker. The human mind is unable to conceive of the four dimensions, so how can it conceive of a God, before whom a thousand years and a thousand dimensions are as one?

              Then there are the fanatical atheists whose intolerance is the same as that of the religious fanatics, and it springs from the same source . . . They are creatures who can't hear the music of the spheres.

              In the view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognise, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what makes me really angry is that they quote me for support for such views-

        I am not a psychic medium, never been to one...
        Have had no training and have read no books on the subject...YET I have had many many experiences of several kinds of manifestations.  I can not prove beyond any shadow of boubt any of my experiences of both the normal or paranormal.

           There is something out there.   FACT!   IT only shows itself as much as it chooses when IT wants to whoever is receptive.

          We can not, by normal means, prove the paranormal.

          Even if I could ? To prove this to someone else doesn't increase its' value to me.   It is there for the seeing if ya want to see it.

      Hi friends

      There are no ghosts; it is only a superstition.

      The Angels are true and are mentioned with definite functions in Quran, the Word of the Creator-God Allah YHWH existing in the original Arabic text; one may however understand it in the translations also.

      Thanks

    All these questions just prove how small and insignificant we are in this great universe we live in. There are multitudes of unanswered questions that we can only speculate on. Even my faith in God is based on faith,no concrete existance can be proven.

    There are some people who will never accept anything a real unless they can sense it with one or another of their five senses; or the tried-and-true instruments of our present day.  Skeptic Societies are filled with them.  Such people generally hark back to that old argument, 'Scientific Proof' forgetting entirely that the scientists of earlier days mocked 'radio' 'heavier than air flight' and more recently Quantum Physics, and how our reality is changed by how we expect it to be (e.g. either as a wavelet or a particle)

    Of course there are things in existence outside of our sensory ranges!  Look at the sky on a cloudless day.  It appears there is nothing there.  A simple temperature drop and voila! the sky is filled with seemingly completely separated clouds.  This would have seemed like magic to early humankind.

    I support those who say they are psychics.   There are just far too many around, and right down through the millenia of human existence to claim they are all mistaken or all frauds.

      Some people's kids! Those who cite "physical law" should really read up on where science is going. Transporters and cloaks of invisibilty, string theory and alternate universes. Theoeretically speaking, it could be said that string theory allows whole universes which follow physical laws foreign to our reality. Could also be one where God doesn't exist, does exist or even one where no one sits around talking about it.

        Far as ghosts go, those who cannot directly effect their surroundings are ghosts. They could be evidence of high energy imprintation of a past image. There is an incredible amount of it in the human body (energy) and a camera works by light to imprint an image. Leonardo's obscurer demonstrates that film is not a requirement for an image to be captured. After Hiroshima and Nagasaki, images were imprinted on remaining surfaces which were humans who had been annihilated. Poltergeists are those who do effect local surroundings, they too may be some form of energy release emanating from someone closely involved in the paranormal activity. A man once told me that he saw Elvis, in the clouds! Not clouds that resembled Elvis. ELVIS! Be areal shocker if he was really JC

    I used to teach sunday school in an Abbey Church - I was taking the children up to the room above the vestry for class and opened the door, only to find a lady in there, arranging flowers.  She had on a twinset and pearls and neat hair.  The flowers were on a large iron stand and were very beautiful. I apologised, closed the door, then thought NO, hang on, we ARE supposed to be in here so I opened the door again and guess what, no lady, just the iron stand - and I could still smell the flowers!  There was no other exit from that room except from the door I opened. I am not given to fancy but the image of that lady has stayed with me for over thirty years!

          Okay angels exit but ghosts do not.How convenient because Muhammadan communicated with an angel.

          “The Messenger of Allaah May Allah's peace and blessings be on him said: ‘The jinn are of three types: a types that has wings, and they fly through the air; a type that looks like snakes and dogs; and a type that stops for a rest then resumes its journey.”

            While discussing about Islam please quote from Quran, the first and the foremost source of Muslims, whatever the denomination. Hadith did not exist at the time of Muhammad; it was collected 200/250 years after his demise and is only accepted if it is not against Quran.

              Surah 6:100

                  Yet they make the Jinns equals with Allah, though Allah did create the Jinns;
                  And they falsely, having no knowledge, attribute to Him Sons and Daughters.
                  Praise and glory be to Him! For He is above what they attribute to Him!

              Surah 46:29 to 31

                  29: Behold, We turned towards you a company of Jinns quietly listening to the Quran: When they stood in the presence thereof, they said, "Listen in silence!" When the reading was finished, they returned to their people, to warn them of their sins.

              Surah 55:14 and 15

                  14: Allah created man from sounding clay like unto pottery,
                  15: and Allah created Jinns from fire free of smoke.

              The Noble Qur'an - Saad 38:35-39
              35. He said: "My Lord! Forgive me, and bestow upon me a kingdom such as shall not belong to any other after me: Verily, You are the Bestower."

              36. So, We subjected to him the wind, it blew gently to his order whithersoever he willed,

              37. And also the Shayâtin (devils) from the jinns (including) every kind of builder and diver,

              The Noble Qur'an - Saba' 34:12-14
              14. Then when We decreed death for him [Sulaimân (Solomon)], nothing informed them (jinns) of his death except a little worm of the earth, which kept (slowly) gnawing away at his stick, so when he fell down, the jinns saw clearly that if they had known the unseen, they would not have stayed in the humiliating torment.
