Ghosts, love 'em or hate 'em. Have you met one, do you believe in them or they the figment of the imagination.
Spiritualism in America--and more specifically, spirit photography-- was taken to court in New York City in 1869. The case: a preliminary hearing for William H. Mumler, who was charged with fraud for selling photographs that he claimed included images of ghosts or spirits.
I think that 99.9% of ghosts are a result of overactive imagination and explainable causes. But I remain open to the possibility that the other 0.1% MAY be real. I have never seen one, but would find the experience fascinating.
I love ghost stories and I get goosebumps walking through spooky surroundings.
I doubt that ghosts exist. Angels are another thing. They do exist.
Angels certainly abound in their multitude. I married one, who in turn gave birth to another one. I believe Angels have a self preservation society, allied to a job creation policy. Evidenced by the abundant female kindliness I tend to meet.
Ghosts I'm not sure of. Quite often and I'm being serious here, I have been sitting at the PC, in late evening, very quiet and been aware of something else in the room standing to my right and slightly behind me. A gray, transparent shroud. Booze ? no i don't drink these days. Imagination ? it's quite lively. Reality ? I'm not sure. Frightening/scarey ? no, in fact it's quite reassuring to me. So I keep an open and receptive mind.
Ghosts exist: in the mind of people suffering from Delirium tremensand other kinds of perception disorders.
The above things surely do not refer to Angels, they do exist.
The thought of ghosts intrigues me and I hope that they exist but I have yet to see one. Once in a blue moon I think I hear my mother's voice but that could be my imagination.
