    Nope.

    Personally never heard, seen, felt, etc. one.

    It's part of the reason why I don't believe in religion either. The story of some guy rising as a ghost after being dead has NEVER been recorded or seen medically and I base practically everything I believe in on science. Now if science some how actually proves it, then I'll likely change my mind as well. Till then, nope.

    I was once watching a football game and completely out of the blue, I thought to myself:
    "I bet Tom Brady throws a touchdown pass!"


    Then later in the third quarter, he did.






    Football ghosts are the best.

    So, if space aliens exists..... do they also have ghosts ?


    How would one fight-off a space alien ghost ?







    I'm beginning to feel a little overmatched here.

    Definitely. Especially the MFP ghosts lurking in the shadows. friendly and malevolent.

    I was hoping of them was back — the main reason I opened the thread.

    I think it’s scarier accepting there is nothing after death. Just nothing.

    One can both believe in an afterlife and not believe in ghosts.

    Quite true.

    Or vice versa; believe in ghosts, but not necessarily an afterlife. Depends on how you define what a ghost is.

    Indeed.

    I’m just filled with dread of the looming darkness. Death has been on my mind a lot lately.

    @Up_n_Running I found it very interesting what happened with the Medium. As I said, my sister is going with a friend, to see someone soon. She deeply wants to believe, wants to know her dh is feeling love and being cared for but she's a big skeptic. I'm sure if she experiences something like what you did, she'd believe but she figures anybody can dig for information and tell her lots of stuff found on the internet/obituaries, stuff like that. But her friend completely believes in this person so that's why she's going.

    Did your visits provide you with a lot of information? I guess I'm just curious what you got out of the experiences.

    Yeah I did get a lot of information on both occasions. Both sittings were recorded as well so I could listen back afterwards. It is very useful to do that cos it can be difficult to take it all in at the time, especially if there is a lot of info. Plus it can be hard to remember everything afterwards, so I would recommend taping it.

    Things I can remember off the top of my head from the reading....

    They said my mum LOVED greetings cards, my mum absolutely DID love them. She basically collected them.

    They used particular words and phrases that my mum used to use when she was referring to me.

    They gave an accurate description of my mum and dads relationship.

    They gave an accurate description of current relationship issues.

    The medium spoke about my mum being with me when I received good news. This made sense to me.

    They gave good description of my parents characters which i felt was accurate and they spoke about some habits they had. Things they did when alive.

    They gave an accurate description of how my dad's life was before he passed.

    They also spoke about other people on the other side that were with my mum. But I couldn't possibly know anything about them, since my mum was fostered at a very young age so I did not meet them.

    There was other things but I can't recall everything. Hope that is helpful.

    Thank you for sharing that! I hope my sister gets a visit like that, with so much information, because she deeply wants to believe. She NEEDS to believe. Now see? Most of those things you mentioned, wouldn't be found through internet searches, etc.

    Again, thank you so very much. :)

    My grandpa was hitchhiking on a very dark night in the middle of a storm back in Ireland. The storm was so strong that he could hardly see his feet in front of him.

    Suddenly a car stopped next to him. Without thinking, he got in and closed the door, just to realize that there was nobody behind the steering wheel. The car moved off slowly.

    He looked ahead and saw a curve in the road. Scared, he started praying, begging for his life. He was terrified. Just before hitting the curve a hand appeared through the window and turned the steering wheel

    My grandpa, now paralyzed with fear, watched how the hand kept appearing every time they got to a curve.

    Gathering all his courage, he jumped out and ran to the nearest lights he could see. Wet and in shock, he went into a pub and asked for a double whiskey. After drinking it, he told everyone of the horrible experience he just had

    Everyone was silent when they realized he was crying and mostly sober. About half an hour later, two men came walking into the pub and, on seeing the terrified man, the one said to the other, "Paul, isn't that the idiot that got into the car while we were pushing it?"

    (My grandpa used to tell this to his grandkids)

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Oh my goodness, freaking hysterical! I needed the laugh, thanks!

    @savannahs21 I've been told by others who have experienced different paranormal activity type things, that one has to be 'open and receptive' and 'sensitive' to those kinds of things.
    I really would like to have those experiences but it would probably scare the living daylights out of me if I did.

    I wonder how different "open and receptive" is to "observant"...

    I have no reason or experience to believe one way or another... but I very much subscribe tot he idea that there is WAAY WAAY WAY more that we don't know than that we do know, so my default leaning when I don't know is that yes, it's possible. Similar with aliens.

    I feel the same way about ghosts as I do religion.

    the stalker / disagreeerer...... probably just a ghost or an evil spirit with their own smartphone.

    I ain't afraid of no ghosts.

    I do not believe in “ghosts”.
    I have had a couple things that freaked me out but I was 18-20 and even though I have no explanation, I am sure that there was one.

    Never heard ghost voice recordings. If it's from TV, I can't take that as proof because TV's main concern is ratings and they'll fake stuff (edit reality TV shows all the time) just to get them.
