Do You Believe In Ghosts?

Asked by Peter John, in Spirituality
You would expect me, being the author of a paranormal comedy, to be a great believer in ghosts but you would be wrong in that assumption. You would then presume that I have never seen a ghost and again you would be mistaken, confused yet? I consider myself to be a hopeful skeptic; hopeful because I would really like to be able to break free of my own cynicism and a skeptic because no matter how hard I try, I can’t. Even after seeing things that I can’t explain myself, I fail to convert myself into a believer on the basis that just because I can’t prove it false doesn't mean it’s true. I regret this standpoint entirely, I see all the benefits in believing in something as strongly as some people believe in the existence of ghosts and other forms of supernatural beings but I don’t seem capable of stepping over that final hurdle of doubt.

If you believe in God, then you must believe in ghosts, cause when there is a good there always be a bad., just like two sides of one coin.

I believe in the possibility of ghosts but that the human mind can also trick people into misunderstanding what they are seeing. I have seen odd things and read and written enough to think there is more to the story however than just confusion and wishful thinking.

Peter.... I am wondering how you were able to write a paranormal comedy. You must have a very good imagination if your able to write about something that you rally don't believe in.
Where can we find what you have written? IF you have not yet done so.. you might want to think about writing an article about it with a link to it.....I would like to see what you have written.
