    Do you believe that ghosts and spirits and other entities actually exist? well if you would have asked me that question about 4 years ago I would have said no... I had 1 unexplained episode back then but over the last year I have been experiencing some very frightening things and its getting worse I have been told that its not the properties I move too but its me they are following is this actually possible!!
    I have posted a couple of my personal video recordings and pictures of 1 or 2 strange happenings !!!

          Alot of people have similar experiences. Unfortunately no one has been able to come up with a definitive answer for what causes these things to happen. I do believe in the existence of other non-human entities, but as to what they are or what they want? I don't know. Careful, however. These things can also be tricks of the mind. I'm not discrediting what you're saying and seeing. But perhaps speak with a doctor about what you've been experiencing, see if there's any medical reason why you might be seeing things. If not, then perhaps you are seeing what is real. Again, exactly what they are, I'm not sure.

          Then, it should be a very simple matter of setting up video cameras, bringing in third party observers to take measurements and do testing, thus getting plenty of hard evidence, considering the extraordinary activity centered entirely around you.

      So, what you're saying is that you believe ghosts are following you around, and you have a couple of videos, but not of them?

      Ghosts are really familiar spirits, that is, they are demons pretending and impersonating dead people.  When you die, you either go to Heaven or you go to Hell.  You do not hang around here.  They're all just demons.

        You know I've read the bible from cover to cover and I don't remember a case where a demon impersonates a dead person or where the term 'familiar spirit' is used.

          How about in Acts when a young psychic woman follows Paul around until he turns to her and says "I command you to come out of her," and the spirits depart. 

          It's in there. You missed it.

            But that account doesn't talk about ghosts or familiar spirits. This girl was I assume cold reading/making open generalised statements, in fact nothing supernatural, and Paul assumed she was demon possessed. How does this relate to the OP?

    I haven't had any paranormal experiences for a very long time but there was a period in my life when I had quite a few. It is a mystery. There is more under the sun than we currently understand. I would suggest you work diligently to not attribute experience to the negative. If there is anything to spirits and what not I would think negativity would cause you to be more open to negative forces.

      Are you able to elaborate Emile? I'm not asking with any cynical motives, but because I'm in transition away from Christianity and can find little reason to believe in anything 'supernatural' anymore. You seem to be level headed rather than a hysterical Christian who sees demons or the Holy Spirit active in anything and everything.

        Well, I've seen what could only be classified as a UFO, I've seen what could only be classified as a ghost. I've participated in incidents that could only be taken as mental telepathy. I've been 'touched' by several things that i couldn't see. I've heard things when there was nothing there. I've known people whose judgment i trust who have had unexplained experiences.

        Yes. I am classified as level headed by everyone i know. I don't claim to know what any incident meant, or what it was. But, they did happen so I remain open minded.

          To be open minded and level headed about those incidents would mean to understand they are explainable by terrestrial and natural means, that they aren't the product of magical and supernatural means.

            lol  Seriously? They are unexplainable by natural means. Which is why they are classified as unexplainable. As I said to rad man. I've been asked specifics. I've given specifics and then some Hubber offers an explanation that has nothing to do with the post I made. I remember telling someone about an incident where this guy called four wild cards, per hand, for multiple hands. The four others (myself included) at the table were thinking of the cards and the guy called those cards every time. He wasn't that bright. He wasn't attempting to pull the wool over anyone's eyes because he wasn't bright enough to do it. It just, bizarrely, happened. There was no explanation. Some atheist came in and told me he could levitate (the atheist) so the incident with the cards could not have happened. I have no idea what one thing had to do with the other, but he was adamant that he was right.

            I'm crying uncle on these things. Unexplained remains unexplained. You can't simply have a conversation and expect someone to pretend that weird shit doesn't sometimes happen because you claim you are capable of doing weird shit that you obviously can't do.

              Card tricks Emile, really? You've never seen someone doing magic before? But of course it unexplainable to those who don't know the trick right?

              EncephaloiDeadposted 3 years agoin reply to this

              Having them classified as unexplainable does NOT mean there isn't a natural explanation or supernatural explanation, it just means an explanation hasn't presented itself.



              So what? It may have been bizarre but it was probably natural, no spooks involved.



              Check out Dynamo, he can levitate, but it's obviously just a trick and explainable by natural means.



              Sure, weird stuff happens, but that doesn't mean it can't be explained by natural means.

                Uhhhh, yeh. That's what I said.



                Uhhhh, yeh. Who said anything about spooks being involved?



                I don't know who Dynamo is but pretending to levitate isn't levitating. It is, as you said, a trick. This guy was claiming he could do it naturally.



                Agreed. Whatever the cause, it is natural. We simply don't know what that is. We don't know everything there is to know about the natural world.

        These claims alway go nowhere and there are always explanations that people refuse to look at.

          wildernessposted 3 years agoin reply to this

          Rather than searching hard for an explanation, it's lots more fun to say "I don't know what else it could be - has to be a ghost".  Or demon, or god, or anything else that cannot be detected.  (Come to think of it, why could all these ghost sightings not be a god, or devil?)

              What assumption?  That you did not spend a week diligently searching for answers and instead decided "it" was a ghost?  Didn't you just say you figure it was a ghost?

              Did you?  Diligently search for a week?  Renting equipment, hiring specialists, etc.?  Or was the assumption correct?

                  I certainly have no idea - you're the one claiming there is no other explanation so I figure you have used such equipment to prove the ghost is there.

                    So, you think because someone saw something that could only be classified as a ghost that they would run out and buy ray guns and plasma shooters? Or, hire a tiny lady to call out 'All Welcome.'?

                    Are you attempting to sell something? Because, as I stated, I'm not concerned about what others think. I'm not insecure enough to need to rush about and attempt to have anyone believe anything.

                    I saw a mountain lion here years ago. Everyone laughed. I didn't care. I know what I saw. Now, everyone knows there are mountain lions here and they apologize off and on for having made fun of me. That doesn't mean what I saw was a ghost. What it means is that I call them as I see them and it doesn't matter to me what you think you know.

              What i find amusing on this site is someone says something unexplained happened. Someone comes in and offers an 'explanation' which isn't related in any way to the original post and then complains that their inability to understand what the original poster commented on is somehow close mindedness by the original poster.

              I remain open minded. I'm done pacifying those who aren't. smile

                  No. I haven't seen the videos. The whole premise for this thread is iffy, at best. I don't tend to engage past a point of giving these things at least the benefit of something along the lines of 'I'm open minded, but you appear to be reading more into an incident than you should'. What point would it be to go further? Judging by the OP's comments thus far I doubt it would be a productive conversation.

                  But.....you were commenting on my post. Not hers. I responded to that comment about my post. If you weren't addressing my comment, why reply to it?

            Unexplained?

            "Well, I've seen what could only be classified as a UFO"
            "I've seen what could only be classified as a ghost."
            "I've participated in incidents that could only be taken as mental telepathy"

            These statements do not sound "unexplained" at all; you have given a complete explanation of what they were.  What says volumes is that you give an explanation (UFO, ghost, telepathy) and immediately backpedal when called on it, saying that each was merely an unexplained experience.

              I realize nay saying is fashionable here, but not knowing the details I find it fascinating that you insist on nay saying. What I saw, heard, experienced is...to this day... unexplainable. We classify the unexplainable as such. A ghost is unexplainable. A UFO is unexplainable. As are all of my other examples. I suppose there is a chance that someone will come along and provide us with enough information to verify that the unexplainable can then be categorized as something else. At this juncture it has not happened. Judging by your vehemence against that which you were not privy to; I doubt you are in a position to provide this information. You simply appear to want to deny other people have the faculties to determine what is and is not unexplainable.

                UFO's, ghost's and telepathy are all explainable you may however not like the explanation, but that doesn't mean they are unexplainable.

                wildernessposted 3 years agoin reply to this

                I very much doubt it.  Unexplained, yes, but it is highly doubtful that it is unexplainable.

                You may not wish to entertain alternate explanations but that doesn't mean they are not there.  You may not wish to take the time and effort to find an explanation, but that doesn't mean it isn't there.  You may not have the technical expertise to find an explanation, but that doesn't mean it is not there, either. 

                That you don't like other explanations, or haven't thought of one yet, does not mean that it is reasonable to then declare that a ghost walked through the room.  Or that an alien flew by or that telepathy happened.  Ignorance is never a reason to make up an answer out of thin air; if you want to claim aliens are visiting earth or that ghosts abound, find one.  Present it to the biologists, chemists and physicists of the world for examination. 

                But until then expect to be disbelieved when you claim an odd experience you can't explain and that therefore ghosts and ET's walk among us.  The logic simply isn't there.

                  I don't care who believes what. It really doesn't matter to me. However, you don't know anything other than what you want to believe and expect me to believe what you believe because you want me to. I don't think you know what you are talking about because you have no idea what you are talking about. Primarily because you don't want to know what you are talking about. You don't want to know what you are talking about because you display no respect for eye witness testimony. Which is your right. However, having no respect for such puts you into a position of not being able to attempt to find out what the cause of such incidents are. You blindly wait for someone, somewhere to somehow come up with an answer that can be agreed on by others and then published so that you can then believe it, simply because they said it.

                  Unfortunately, the unexplained happens. We label it by names that help all who hear about the incident to identify it as unexplained. This becomes a problem when people attempt to read more into the incident than it was. I say I saw a UFO and you say something about me believing aliens are visiting the earth. I assume because you don't know what the letters in the term UFO stand for. I say I saw something that could only be labeled a ghost. You start talking about demons.

                  Please, don't push your inability to take something at face value and continue to listen and learn, in an attempt to have a better understanding, onto others. Close mindedness of this caliber is not something I am interested in working to attain.
