No, although I would not want to stay in a haunted house overnight. Weird, that.
Why take chances, tempt fate, etc... Right?
It's like the "Ark Of The Covenant"... I am a bit skeptical about some of what is written in historical texts... But, EVERY description of it, references that it was a weapon, and when it was used, people always died when they were near it....
If it were ever found, I would certainly do everything I could to be as far away from it as I could, when it is opened, just in case it were all true...
I really don't want to have my face melted...
I'll let the die hard non believers who say "It's Complete BS" that will still open it up, suffer that fate.
"Put A Little Love In Your Heart, and then Make Your Own Kind Of Music, on the road to Shambala!"
For decades now, scientists & skeptics have yet to come up with reasonable explanations for these particular things on that list...
2.) Feeling a sudden and inexplicable change in temperature...
Cold "Spots" During The Summer Time?
Seriously, please let me know how I can suddenly freeze my home during the dog days of Summer! I really want to know, because my air conditioner is working too hard, because it's just too hot out, and the house just isn't cool enough to even create COOL SPOTS!
3.) Household objects mysteriously disappearing and then reappearing in different places...
What... Do these objects just get up and move by themselves?
And don't give me that BS about how someone may misplace an object, when that that particular object has a particular place where it is stored...
For example: You find a loaf of bread sitting on your bed, when you always keep it in the kitchen...
You don't just "misplace" that!
6.) Frequent electrical problems such as lights inexplicably turning on or off...
"CLICK"...On goes the light.
TAPS from "Ghost Hunters" captured this happening on Video... OK, So how do we know, for sure, that TAPS didn't "fake" that...
But, how do you explain that, when it happens right in front of you, and you know it wasn't "faked"?... Light Switch Fairies?
7.) Feeling of being touched by unseen hands...
How about being forcefully being pushed, or something yanking on your long hair or loose clothing... Or objects being yanked out of your hands?
And what about claw mark scratches suddenly appearing on your skin?
But, that's right, we all just imagined it all and it never happened, because...
Skeptics know better, because "It's All BS", Right?
That is a complicated question to answer. On one hand, I believe that there are spirits that can haunt other things and/or people just by floating interdimensionally. But on the other, I never experienced one completely.
I'll say yes just because I have been noticing some weird sh!t lately to me and other family members (ie. things going missing for no apparent reason).
I sort of hope they do, if for no other reason than that some people--naming no names--deserve to be haunted.
I know what you mean...
Many skeptics can be quite mean and insulting to those who truly believe in some kinds of a paranormal creatures and have been nearly frightened to death by their "experiences" with them...
Sometimes, I too, wish that they would have a brief encounter with a scary being so that they can scream at them, "BUT, YOU DON"T EXIST!" "YOU DON"T EXIST!" "YOU DON"T EXIST!", WHILE they ending up losing control of their bodily functions and taking a dump in their pants. LOL!
Not saying anyone has to believe...I just wish people would show a little more compassion... Because no one wants, to think that they are home alone and then turn a corner into a hallway and see a stranger standing there, even if it is just a hallucination... Being called crazy and stupid, doesn't help anyone.
"Put A Little Love In Your Heart, and then Make Your Own Kind Of Music, on the road to Shambala!"
I've stated this elsewhere, and it's something that, if you stop and REALLY think about, is very, VERY hard to logically refute..........ghosts ARE real, if for no other reason than the simple fact that if they are not, that means that all of the MILLIONS of people that have shared their accounts, encounters, and strange stories involving ghosts since the beginning of time are all FAKES, and each and every one of them are complete LIARS.
Is it really possible that ALL of these people are involved in what would have to be one of the biggest conspiracies of all time, if it turned out that ghosts are NOT real, and that they were ALL just making up their stories of ghostly encounters, or simply mistaken in what they saw and/or heard ??
No, no, no. They're not all liars or involved in a conspiracy. They're just all mistaken. There a is no PROOF of ghosts. You cant believe in something without proof of it. There's no story I've ever heard about ghosts that cant be disproven with simple logic, deduction, and scientific methods.
Let me give you just one example: Some people claim that what's in this picture is proof of ghosts-
You know what it's really proof of?
That's all! Dust particles in the air! Not the presence of ghosts!
Its not hard to logically refute at all! In fact its quite the reverse. You don't approach a problem by refuting it. You approach a problem by proving it, or not. Now go prove to me that ghosts DO exist. Go on. I'll wait...
A lot of people believing something doesn't prove anything or make it real. People once believed the Earth was flat my friend. That dumb shit really happened! And it was a world wide belief! Do I have to refute that?
(Then of course there are the people who ARE lying; usually for some sort of gain. But that's another story.)

2.) Feeling a sudden and inexplicable change in temperature or a sudden static/electrical charge in the air
Hot flashes, actual warm/cold hot spots in your home
3.) Household objects mysteriously disappearing and then reappearing in different places
someone in your home doesn't like to put things back where they belong
4.) Hearing unexplained whispers, footsteps, thuds or someone calling your name
you're sleepy or tired or crazy, or your home carries noises from outside really well
5.) Seeing shadows or movements out the corner of your eye

NONE of those things is proof of anything supernatural. And for each of them I've given you perfectly sane, rational, logical and PROVABLE reasons why those things might be. But you choose to believe something supernatural before you choose to believe something perfectly believable and logical? WTF? LOL
I’d like there to be, but I’m agnostic on it. On the other hand, I can’t quite say “no”… Gah. This question always gets to me. At the risk of repetitiveness, here are my two “ghost stories”—the only two possibly supernatural events that have ever happened to me (I’m leaving out the time my mother and I had the same dream 40 years apart, or things like precognition—those don’t involve ghosts, or possible ghosts):
The first one happened the first time I traveled to Italy—along with my parents and a few other family-members. One of the places we visited in Venice is San Michele, a cemetery-island. It’s not really where most tourists would go, but it was pretty interesting and even calming compared to the rest of the city.
Well, when we arrived there was this funeral procession just leaving, with everyone dressed up the way you’d imagined they did 100 years ago. It was like going in back in time.
I was there with my father, my uncle, and my cousin (the rest of our party were off shopping) and after looking into some of the creepy, horror movie-esque tombs I went exploring the other side of the island (it’s small enough that there’s no real chance of getting lost).
I walked into one above-ground crypt (or whatever the right word is—it was modern-looking, not like the tombs near the entrance), and suddenly I heard my father screaming my name.
So I ran back towards the entrance, and I saw my dad rushing towards me like I was rushing towards him. I said something something like “Is everything OK?” and he said, “What do you mean? Why were you yelling, ‘Dad!’?”
I explained what had happened to me, and he said that at the some moment he had heard me screaming “Dad!” over and over again. He swore he hadn’t yelled my name. My uncle and cousin were near the entrance. There was no one else on the island after the funeral procession had left. I still can’t figure it out.
There is a property near where I grew up called the Gardiner Farm. It is still a working farm, but around fifty years ago it was owned by the Gardiners, four siblings (two sisters and two brothers) who never married and just all lived together, farming and selling their goods from their front porch. When they died, they left the house and grounds to the county, which, as noted, still uses it for a working farm. There is a fun, silly event there every year called the “Pickle Festival.” The farmhouse is closed now, but it used to be open for tours during the festival.
Basically, there was a Lizzy Borden-esque murder that took place there about 150 years ago: the four siblings’ grandparents were murdered by a farmhand. Heads bashed in near the fireplace.
Then we entered another room. I was immediately struck by a terrible feeling of coldness (as clichéd as it gets), a nasty, sickening feeling in the air—like a hospital ward. I had to leave the room. When the rest of the group came out, I asked the tour guide if anything had happened in the room.
She said no, the murder had happened near the fireplace and that nothing had happened in that room. She said no again but asked one of the older tour guides, who said that, no, nothing had happened in that room, but that after the murders that had been where they laid out the bodies for the wake.
Attempts at debunking are more than welcome (as long as it’s not “your dad is lying.” He resolutely does not believe in anything supernatural and would not have started or kept up such a ruse).
, once a person DIES he OR she goes straight to being judged by Jesus. IMMEDIATELY after that, they go INSTANTLY to Heaven, Purgatory OR Hell. There are NO wandering, lost spirits/souls aka ghosts on Earth. Ghosts ARE just figments of one's imagination, hoaxes, OR demons pretending to be a DEAD loved one.
