Do you believe in the paranormal?

pretty much what the title says, "do you believe in ghosts and the paranormal?"

I am a member of the Tennesse Paranormal Soceity and have had a host of personal experiences that I can not explain. I personally do believe in the spirt world myself and I wondered what everyones thoughts on the subject matter were?

I have seen some crazy stuff over the years. Some of it real and some of it fake. A few crazy things I have experienced I couldn't explain and still can't to this day! Sometimes I get get a crazy feeling like a disturbance in the force and you can never really explain that. I enjoy watching all of those shows on haunted places and spirits so I would say yes. I am not all crazy about it but at the end of the day I have had some run ins with things I will never be able to explain.

I love this topic! Not sure how many of you guys watch Ghost Hunters on Sci-Fi but my wife and I love the show. Joel and I both have did our own little paranormal investigation at Waverly Hills Sanitarium in Louisville Kentucky a few years back. Do I believe in the spirit world, yes. Have I had a personal experience that proved it to me, no. However I have had some persona experience that left me scratching my head.

I have never understood why spirits would hang around some of the spots you find them in. But there is that whole theory of redual haunts, where a person is reenacting there daily life. The intelligent haunts are the ones that really freak me out. The voices you can pick up on digital recorders and the interaction you can have with these "spirits". It is a very interesting topic that I love learning about.(P.S. Scott we needed to hear about some of these experiences you have had?)

If you had asked me several years ago I'd have said no way. I've always loved ghost stories but thought of them as pure fiction.Then I had one experience and I'm not so sure anymore.

alright do I need to create a separate thread to hear these personal stories or what?

I would like to believe that there is something after death, but I've never been the type of person to believe in something on faith alone.

I have had a few strange experiences in my life, but nothing that I could say with any certainty was paranormal.

Even though I'm an eternal skeptic, I still really enjoy shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International, Destination Truth, Scariest Places On Earth, etc.

For me it all revolves around my love for all things horror related, and the closer it gets to Halloween, the more into it I get.

I have seen to many things that I can not explain for me to say no there isn't a spirit world. I have had some really weird things happen to me in the house I grew up in. Things that still freak me out to think about.

Somebody, anybody, tell these stories that freaked you out so bad!

I most certainly do believe in ghosts. I think it is naive to think that spirits don't exist at all. I suppose that is just me though. There have been too many things that go bump in the night that have shown me I am right.

I have to chime in on this subject. I believe in the paranormal. My mom's father used to see and hear spirits and my mom's aunt on her mother's de of the family also see and hear them. My mother and a few of my friends believe that I am a "sentive" just as my two family members. My first "encounter" was a little boy named Fred who was my invible friend for many years (No, I am not making that up. His name really was Fred). I have a vague recollection of him, but my mother remembers more about my relationship with him than I do. On occaon I have had a few more encounters with them. So far they have been mischievous or confused, but never violent - Thankfully.

I am so excited to have this section on here. I have been looking for forums about haunted dolls, but I have been unsuccessful so far.

I have never experienced anything in my almost 39 years of living. And after watching Penn & Teller's Bullshit about this type of thing. I just cannot ever believe in something I cannot touch or prove beyond all realm of posbility that it exists. Hence one of many reasons why I am Atheist. But I must also add that I wold never tell someone they were wrong if they really believed they saw something.

I used to be skeptical, until my second year in the Navy.

I saw a ghost then and have never forgotten it...

The Gallotti's haunting Manon

There is a house, near of the Tijucas river, built in 1898 that when I was at school, I lived in Tijucas/SC, must have 16 or 17 years old, me and 3 friends made that stupid bet "who had courage to stay 1 hour or more on the Gallotti's house?" Sure I accept it. The horror movies always impressed me, but I never believed in paranormal activties. Well, the "legend" around this house says that it's haunting by the wife of Chiquinho Gallotti, wich was one of the city founders. All the history about this house is long and too boring, so I won't tell it. But, we went to the house. It was 7 pm. Dude, I didn't see nothing like a ghost or something, but I heard many strange noises, like kids laughing and people walking, and doors opening and creaking... We should be there for 30 or 40 minutes, and then we ran out there. The basement were used to put the servants, and were creepy as hell! The pics I puted here are real and actualized, and the house is still there.
