Have TV shows and liars ruined our chances at proving ghosts are real?

    Monkey see monkey do, sometimes people just want to be on television and they will do and say anything to have their 15 minutes in the lime light.We have all seen the crazy looking guy on TV who claims he was abducted or the lady who sees her dead grandma baking cookies ,whatever the tale is, there is no real way to tell if it's the truth.So if we keep talking about supernatural things will it become a tale of the boy who cried wolf?

    Prooving the existence of the paranormal if you want to see it that way or trying to get spirits to play to the camera is next to impossible as they are individuals just as you or I.  They still have their emotions intact and have just as much desire to be exposed in public as anyone, celebrities included, who gets anywhere near a gathering of paparazzi.  Most places where the kind that do want contact hang out are places that you will never get a camera crew into.  Try to get someone to film inside of Silent Hill WV and yes it is an actual place.  Either way, you will never get a spirit to stand under the microscope.  You being convinced just takes going alone into a lot of sad and frightening places doing leg work on your own that you would rather other people do.  that kind of Proof is very available if you are game but trying to convince anyone else will put you in the same category as the nuts that you feel discredit the idea in the first place.

    Ghost aren't real, it only plays in our minds. If you think about ghost and other paranormal activities so much then there is a possibilities that you will encounter, so our mind produces those things.

    People have talked about ghosts long before TV was invented, and people have always lied - so nothing new there.  Neither will impact on the existence or non-existence of ghosts.
