Does ghost or soul really exist?
« on: 22/08/2008 17:02:28 »
Many unsolved cases for example the haunted swing that swung for ten days in Argentina and many other hearsay that they saw ghost or inexplicable figure in their lifetime. Some say that they have extraordinary eyes that allow them to see the souls in the other 'world'. Some can even communicate with 'them', and some were possessed.

How can it be explained? Why don't those who have these 'gifted' eyes capture or bring these souls for experiment?

People say a lot of things, the question is whether you believe them. In some cases you may doubt their honesty and in others, their ability as an objective witness. There seems to be a need for people to want to believe in the supernatural, however bizarre or unlikely. None of these events are ever reproducible in any environment where they can be tested by other observers; this must tell you something. I can see no rational reason for the existence of ghosts or souls and I can see plenty of reasons why the concepts are more likely to be a product of human imagination.

Interesting it may be, but I don't think this question is in the right category. It is not to do with Physics, Astronomy or Cosmology.

It is strange how people device ludicrous explanations for phenomena they cannot readily explain by normal physical means.
I often see UFO,s (objects in the sky that I cannot immediately identify) but would not dream of asscibing them to little green men, also I occasionally glance ghostly figures out of the corner of my eye when I momentarily doze off but well know they are only figments of my imagination.
As for souls, afterlife etc, a comforting thought but really nonsense
