In the house we lived in when I was a kid I can still distinctly remember seeing, from the corner of my eye, a white outline that was slightly blurred with the face of a young girl and brown pig tails. I believed in ghosts before then, and probably always will.

Gave me Goosebumps.
When people say you've changed, it just means that you have stopped living your life, their way.

No I do not believe in ghosts. I believe that we can see or feel the presence of angels or demons. It is obvious which one of those is good and which one is bad. Demons could possibly take on the form of someone that you knew who passed away, and then that could cause someone to think that they are seeing a ghost when they really are not. Angels could also take the form of a loved one, in which case they could be carrying a message from God. Somewhere along the way, I think this whole concept just got misunderstood, but no matter how the idea of ghosts came about, I do not believe that they exist.

This is one of those subjects for me where it is really difficult to say yes or no. Yes I believe it is a possibility. I have not encountered any circumstances though. However, if they did exist, I do not think they are evil.

Yes, sure. They are souls with unfinished business here on Earth, or those who met with a tragic end (murdered, etc) and are confused about where they're supposed to be. I mean we all are souls in human bodies in this lifetime, once we die we go back to being souls. Ghost are just souls stuck on Earth until they move on.

I believe in ghosts, I think I've felt a presence before, whether they're real or not it helped me at the time. I'd never want a scary experience with one though and the thought of living in a haunted house gives me the creeps.

I do not believe in ghosts. In spite of that, I absolutely adore ghost stories. whenever I read a ghost story, I just remind myself that this is no more real than Harry Potter and Twilight and that this is just fiction and not reality.

Lemme just say that I'm one of the most skeptical person there is. I tend not to believe anything unless t can be scientifically or otherwise proven. But I've seen things happen that can't be explained.

I kind of do believe ghosts, but just not every story I hear about them, if that makes sense. I like to think that "ghosts" of my grandparents are watching over me and my family. Also my dad had an episode while driving, when he just made a turn and heard this voice telling him to turn to bus lane not main lane for some reason (there was visibly a bus on a bus lane, so it would have been easier to just turn to main lane as usual). And the same second he made the turn, some lunatic drove through red light and would he had turned to correct lane, would have smashed through the side he was sitting on without stopping. I still get chills thinking about it.

I believe in ghosts and all forms of elementals. I was raised in a culture that strongly believes in such other worldly creatures, although out term is perhaps a little different. We even have specific rituals for certain types of spirits. For us some spirits are kind, while there are others who are vengeful. But both types always need to be appeased from time to time.

I definitely believe that our spirits live on after death. I think our energy and soul go somewhere, but as living humans we may not have the capability to understand it. Maybe we will one day, but I think at this point most stories about ghosts and spirits are hypothetical or fiction. Even if a person thinks the encounters are real, I believe that the mind is an incredibly powerful and potentially misleading thing that we also have so much more to discover about. That being said, since I admit that I do not know the answers, I always find stories about ghosts really interesting. I think it is really cool to think about the possibilities, whether they are good or bad.

I believe in Ghosts. I have heard so many stories and I have had my own share of experience. They are real.
