    Without physical bodies, how can ghosts be photographed?  How can they attack us physically?

    In some cases many ghost are just energy lingering from someones life, The flash of a camera can reflect of this energy and allows either a white smudge or a orb to appear on the film. A large portion of ghosts or spirits can also just be beings on another plane of existence. These ones can be photographed as well but they can not really harm us.

    As for the other ones. When and if they do harm us, their just energy connecting with energy. Humans are just energy in a more solid form. They are energy lingering with a sense of consciousnesses. So energy is basically interacting with energy.

    Take wind for example. We can't see it but it can still move the tree's and the grass and can even be devastating and destroy houses.

      if ghosts were energy we'd be able to detect it - no one's been able to do so.  the camera effects you describe have long been debunked as either mistaken interpretations or outright fraud

      emf readers pick up such energy interference. and How can yo fake a Polaroid photograph?

      polaroids can be faked - eg, by partially exposing the film beforehand. 

      google 'fake ghost Polaroid photograph' for many more examples

    they can't -  there's no evidence they exist and the fact that they have no physical effect is a main reason why they are unlikely to exist

    many people make claims about ghosts but none of these claims have held up when examined.  it's pretty easy to fake ghost images and people have been doing it since photography was invented

    In the Bible, it speaks of "angels" coming to Earth and taking on human form and taking wives for themselves. When the flood came, they supposedly left their human form and returned to Heaven at which point they were "thrown out". I guess if there WAS a such thing as a ghost, it would probably take on the form of something familiar to us and we would never even know that it was indeed a ghost. In which case it would be easily photographed, and could attack. All just a thought. I do not believe in them. One could come up with many avenues with which to discuss this though. Great question!

      Without the physical form it would remain unseen I suppose and could be felt no more than air. I believe that people's desire to believe in ghosts stems from the need to believe that death is not real, and that one's soul is immortal..
