    Do you believe in ghosts, spirits, mediums, or other such paranormal activities?

    I personally believe that the things called ghosts are in fact evil spirits, like the demons from the bible, not the spirits of the departed. I also think that the people who go looking for them are weird.

    I voted maybe because I'm not sure if they exist or not.Of course we excluse the appearance of Saints/Elders of the Church or evi/demonic creatures like Anir said.

    We're talking about simple ghosts of the departed.

    Oh man Anir should play "Lost Crown A ghost-hunting adventure".The best thing in that game are the voice clips of the ghosts you get to tape.

    "Ager...Ager....Ager.....it was Ager....he promised me the Pasque flower................bring me the Pasque flower!"


    or the other one....a very spooky one

    I believe in Ghosts, Spirits, Demons, the like. I think that just because we can't see them, doesn't mean they arent there. Also, people have had "encounters" with them, wether or not we beleive them is up to us, but I do. Also, I'd like to think theres more for us after we die, like something more than life.

    I guess I'm weird, I love investigating the paranormal, though I do not believe them to be demons.

    Well, what I mean is, why would you want to go looking for a potentially evil/dangerous spirit?

    spirits/ ghosts exist but are in no way evil. People are only sacred of ghosts becuase of movies and stories.

    I look because it intrigues, with my own experiences I have found nothing evil, just mischievous at best. I don't believe them to be evil demons or spirits, there might be some, who knows, anything is possible, but I mostly agree with alex.

    In the Biblical sense, spirits do exist albeit the formal term for that is soul. When God created mankind, it was in accordance to his image. God is eternal and hence, the human soul is pretty much the same as well.

    The whole issue on ghosts, quite frankly to me as a Christian is something Satan devised as a superstition in order to mess up the human mind even more. This is not to say ghosts don't exist. Or rather from a Christian POV, such beings were Satan's friends on hell like what Anir meant here. Obviously if a person is saved by God's grace, there's no reason for him to go back to the living world after he died. If there's any means of watching over his loved ones, imo the Bible is enough.

    On a side note, I guess I might discover interesting stuff after half a year from now where I've decided to go back to my advanced Bible class since the topic of learning will be 2 Samuel where there's an interesting scenario on the witch summoning Samuel's soul, which if anyone of you guys are familiar with the Bible, is just a bogus case of the man himself. So to put things in short, I vote no. :)

    I voted maybe.

    But what really is a ghost (and other paranormal entities)? Could ghosts just have started as figments of the imagination? And whose existence in the world spiralled into reality by the spreading of stories about them and reinforced by passing down those stories to following generations? If that is the case, then yes, ghosts are real because they are characters in people's stories who have earned their place in our imaginations and perceived realities over the centuries/millenia.

    I believe in ghosts.

    But I do find it amusing that the Christians believe ghosts are demons, but the "Risen Christ" is okalie dokalie. Yay for quantries.
