Methinks ye doth protest too much...
Sorry, ghosts are real. I didn't believe in them either until I saw pictures. Those pictures cannot be disputed, expecially when they were taken with our own camera. And, I'm not talking about orbs either.
Wow....Voodoo and Woo Woo? So, let me get this straight. You said "This kind of stuff is not harmless, it is destructive..." Is helping a grieving individual get answers or closure about their passed loved ones destructive? Is convincing a family with scared children that they have absolutely nothing to worry about when they hear sounds or see things in their home that they can't explain destructive? Is doing extensive research, experiments and spending countless hours viewing the possibilities to explain the unexplained destructive? I think not! We're not here to convince anyone but instead to do the research and present information to them with scientific analysis that will allow an individual to take what they will from particular occurrences in their own lives. Nothing destructive there.
voodoo and woo-woo? Who said anything about that? Ghost hunting has absolutely nothing to do with Voodoo or woo-woo! Geez, get a grip!
Cinder, Just because we want something to be so--in this case the spirits of the dead walking among us--does not mean that it actually is so. Nor does it mean that its a good thing to believe. If we would all engage with reality think of all the good we could do for each other, rather than occupying ourselves with voodoo and woo-woo. This kind of stuff is not harmless, it is destructive because it gives us an erroneous understanding of what reality is.
People need to believe what they need to believe and who are we to say what that is. I for a fact believe that our loved ones walk along us as spirits or angels. That is what gets most through. I am a firm believer in unfinished business. They are in our memories and in our hearts. Good Job Rob!
Oh Please! Ghost are figments of our fevered, over active simian imaginations. There has NEVER been one scientifically proven instance of "supernatural" hauntings etc. For more rational discourse on this "phenomenon", I would refer you to the writings of Michael Shermer and James "The Amazing" Randi.
