    Frankly it's harder to believe that some people are getting their panties in such a knot about this than it is to believe in ghosts.

    No need for all the name callin' fussin' and feudin'

    You believe in ghosts? Cool. You don't believe in ghosts? Cool. You call someone stupid because they believe/don't believe? Not cool.

    Not really. In the original Greek, the word is pneuma (πνεῦμα) which is "breath", and in a religious context is "spirit" or "soul".

    There are tons of "theories" in science, meaning there is no real proof for XYZ and that's why they are theories... and they will remain theories until science can actually prove them as fact. Yet, we talk about theories as proof all the time i.e. even scientists forget the meaning of the word "theory" and teach theory as fact, or somehow gloss over the fact that the theory is a theory. So... even some of the most revered scientific beliefs are actually theories, yet the general populus believes in them as a "fact". Just because it sounds logical doesn't mean that it is, and vice versa, and just because we want to believe it as a fact doesn't mean that it is... and vice versa. Just my 2 cents

    You need to google! Science uses theory and fact in different ways from colloquial speech.

    Our farmhouse when I was a kid was very haunted. My younger brother and I were so glad when we sold the farm and got away from there. Our Mother wouldn't admit it was haunted while we lived there, but had a few stories about it she'd tell us after we moved away from there.

    Santana thought his guitar turned into a snake at woodstock.

    I did not see it on the video.

    What is wrong with me?

    I don’t, personally. Although there’s definitely a phenomenon even if it’s just in the way people perceive things. People truly do have experiences of some sort.

    Always happy to be proven wrong. It would make the world more exciting.

    So...surely this means a Christian has to believe in ghosts ? Otherwise JC doesn't exist ?

    Given the amount of 'ghost-hunting' shows on TV you'd think something irrefutable would have been captured by now.
    It would be all over the news if it did happen, that's for sure.

    I don’t believe in plums, because I bought some yesterday at the market.

    There have been many, many news worthy reports over the years and some have gone national and even international. Search and you'll find plenty of unexplained things that have happened, especially ghostly stuff, in the news. As for needing to be a Christian to believe in ghosts - not true either IMO although some have certainly had 2nd thoughts on the matter after their first ghostly encounter.... who knows, but one thing I do know is that they happen when you least expect it :)

    Yes I do believe in them. When I was 13 I was over at a friends house, the house was empty except for the two of us, I was sitting at a drum set looking out the door into the hall, my friend was next to me sitting on a bed talking to me at the drums (behind me on the wall was a mirror that if you look into the mirror you'd see the back of me and out the door and into the hall) at the same time we both jumped when we saw an old man walk by the door way. We both jumped up, took a minute walked out in the hall which was connected by two other rooms and the stairs leading downstairs, we were still the only two in the house. That was my only ghost experience.
