Do you believe in ghosts? The belief that the souls of the deceased may remain among the living is commonly held among Americans, with a CBS poll in 2005 showing 48% of Americans in this camp. A surprisingly large group of 22% even reported that they had

Interesting article - as for me - of course there are ghosts - as for the TV shows most are fake!

Very interesting article. I believe in ghosts because when I was in my teens, I saw one in the house in which we were living. At a different time, my brother saw the same ghost. I know that the soul leaves the body upon death and at times will manifest itself as a ghost. Thank you Agnes, for the wonderful article!

Of course there are ghosts. I find it hard to believe that people don't believe. As far as Ghost Hunters being frauds, sure they can be manipulating evidence. But, before GH came on the air, friends and I did the same type of investgating and we had similar results, so I know GHs do get evidence. I was Lead Skeptic :) and looked for plausable explainations and got them a lot of the time. But there were times we could not explain things we witnessed, or EVPs captured. I do not do this anymore after one very dangerously frightening experience - and I do not scare easily.
TY Agnes.

I couldn't read most of this article because, frankly, it annoyed me. Matter can not die.It is transformed - call it a ghost, spirit, life force, etc.
I am well aware of these beings for most of my life, because I have been open to receiving them.
There is no point in going on. If you are open to the realization that life does not stop at death, embrace these souls, and help them to move on.
For those of you who may know nurses or doctors, ask them if they believe in the soul.

I confess I am a skeptic, but nonetheless find this fascinating. (As Marcus Aurelius said, nothing ever really falls out of the universe.)

My favorite paranormal TV series, is the Discovery channels " A Haunting" I have all four seasons on dvd, and the stories in it are very realistic.
