    There's a ghost in my house named Frank ... I haven't asked my wife if she's seen him.

    I talk with him when I see him. No big deal. My dog doesn't like him very much - the dog growls at Frank when he first appears, but Stan appreciates that I calm the dog down so we can chat.

    I'm afraid that Mrs A_E will make us move if she thinks there's a ghost... but Frank and I have an agreement that he's kept... so no worries at all...

    this was by far one of the most realistic programs on spirtual and supernatural events i have ever seen they are vert deducated to documenting parnormal events i could not believe what they showed it was unbeliviable. i dont know how it canbe denied when it is so well documented . i myself have experienced this in my own home well before watching these programs the only reason i started watching was simply searching for answer of why it was happening to our family in our house and as i stated not only to me but to my sons as well.

    I have pictures of ghosts. I like to show them to people and argue as to why they are ghosts in the picture, until the person I'm arguing with agrees that they must be ghosts. Then I tell them that I don't believe in ghosts, and that I was just kidding.

    How does your experience and schooling correlate?

    That's pretty funny. :biglaugh:

    The cool thing is that there are lots of ghosts that would think that's funny too. :D

    Hahaha...

    I don't believe that ghosts are the spirits of people... but I have seen some crazy things that seem to point towards something outside of normal human perception...

    I don't think that Christianity allows for ghosts. It does allow for demoniac activity, though, but that doesn't mean there are any dead people going about. But generally I think what people see as ghosts have some kind of rational, natural explanation. It's possible in my mind that perhaps they are echos of past events. Whatever they are, I don't believe they are the spirits of dead people.

    Why not? The disciples thought that Jesus was a ghost when he was walking on water, and Jesus getting in the boat and eating with them was explicitly to show that he was real...

    ... and the same thing with the resurrection stories in the NT. All of them were given something to eat, from John the Baptist to Jarius' daughter to Jesus himself.

    The teaching was not that ghosts don't exist, but that resurrection and life are distinct from a kind of phantasmal existence - whatever that may be. It certainly allows for, and indeed assumes such an existence. That is, the resurrection stories assume that the readers of the NT, the earliest Christians believed in "ghosts" and the resurrected Christ (and etc) were not such "ghosts."

    ok i realize i am a joke and thats ok i feel ashamed i put up my post because i was serious i am pretty hurt by the the responses but you know what if you disagree thats ok i just dont know why you all must hurt someones feels i mean i got pretty traumatized by these events even if you dont beleive them , my children realy went thru allot and it did bother them could you imagine going to school right after an event like that to answer someones joking question about it they used to run into my room in the middle of the night shaking but i think people get so used to talking to a laptop they forget there is a humen being behind it. will this is just a reiminder hi i am michelle and i was deeply hurt by the responses and it made me cry i dont understand why people that wrote me are so angry at me i did nothing but wrote my story and it hurts deeply because this stuff scared me and my family to death and still does at times so i am asking would you look at me like a human and not as just as your laptop wrighting out words this is a religious form right. thanks my name is michelle i am a person my children are 13 and 17 and at times still get upset with our situation

    I wasn't making any jokes. My question was an honest inquiry. I'm just wondering why you mentioned being a nurse as I don't see what that would have to do with experiencing hauntings.

    Michelle,

    Have you brought a clairvoyant into your house?
    Or someone familiar with this sort of thing?

    If it were me... I would hopefully keep my usual nonsuperstitious kool,
    and talk to the "entities". Ask them who they are?
    If they are in need of something? Why they are there.....
    That sort of thing. That would be my first approach I think.
    Growling dogs? not so sure. I'm not an animal person.
    (though you could certainly speak with a dog expert,
    a respected trainer.)

    I'm used to getting my answers "Source" (from within/the UniVerse)
    but will certainly seek the help of an experienced, when necessary.

    ~Violet~

    PS... Maybe Draka, or the Cardero's can help you out a bit.
