And you cannot provide one iota of proof to substantiate your claim. Even the Bible, which isn't evidence in any respect, invalidates the existence of ghosts as you describe them. If you're not Christian, that statement means nothing. But, if you are a Christian, I can show you where in the Bible it firmly invalidates the existence of ghosts. It's actually quite specific. According to the Bible, the Torah, and the Ko'ran, the fancied ghosts of stories and man do not exist.Doc Walker said:Ghosts are souls who haven't let go of this life yet, something is keeping them on the in between of our current dimension and the otherside, where the birth of our souls occured.
And that is the argument here, isn't it? The claim of souls is a Judeo-Christian claim and all Abrahamic faiths answer this the same: Ghosts do not dwell on Earth, do not haunt, etc.
If you're a Christian, then you're the one being self-righteous, for failing to identify what is written in the Bible and to claim there are ghosts, without evidence and without even a personal encounter. Merely by running on what others have claimed, you sit here and claim that others are self-righteous for denying the existence of ghosts & hauntings.Doc Walker said:Their reason may be to look after something or someone they love, or it may be the fact that they don't know their dead. To deny the existence of ghosts based on the fact that you haven't seen one is truly self-righteous.
Really? There's such a thing as a non-fake psychic? Tell me oh humble one, how can you determine fake from fact, if facts and evidence are not acceptable data to examine in determination of credibility?Doc Walker said:now I haven't much of an idea on how to properly contact the dead, you need to consult a non-fake psychic on that matter.
And those sources are?Doc Walker said:Of course we all know about weegie boards but I've heard from many sources that that's like shooting in the dark, often stirring up trouble.
Fascinating, so people who get conned out of their money, who are tricked into believing things, they don't have their eyes open? If a person sees something, people with their 'eyes open' do not always believe. If you can provide evidence to support your claim, by all means do so. Otherwise, you're attributing "powers" to humans that they don't possess.Doc Walker said:If you are truthful in what you saw, others who have their eyes open can sense it's the truth.
Pointing out what is self-evident, and likewise pointing out what is not, does not make one a liar or close-minded. Just because you feel presentation of logic is somehow laughing and poking fun doesn't mean you're being persecuted, but it could very well mean you have a persecution complex, that you're reading into it what you need to strengthen your self-righteous tone.Doc Walker said:Liars & close-minded people can always poke fun and laugh.
Also, there's a difference between being open-minded and being gullible. Clearly you have not learned to differentiate.
And this has to do with ghosts, how?Doc Walker said:i wanna quote Billy Joel, "I'd rather laugh with the sinners, than cry with the saints." I believe this whole-heartedly
Since my last post 2 years ago, I visited many more U.S. States and a few other locales. All in all, I visited well over 500 "ghost" sites/towns, slept outdoors in over a thousand locations that are claimed to be haunted, and pursued data pertaining to many alleged sightings of ghosts and other spooks.Doc Walker said:Ya, I'm calling your BS Hellstromm, wake up and smell your self-righteousness dude.
That's my work on the issue, what's yours? Listening to stories and believing them? Did you do any homework? Did you research these claims? Did you review the evidence that disputed so many of them? Did you check the scientific efforts to identify "something," with all claims presenting absolutely no supporting evidence?
There are reasons why ghost stories exist. Some of it is mental illness or chemical imbalance either due to medical issues, drugs, or insufficient sleep. Some of it is "hope" for something more in life than what is self-evident. Some of it is attention-seeking and some of it is for profit (or the "hope" of obtaining profit). Let's face it, there are many people who are not healthy, many who do not want to accept that death entails the end, many who seek fame, fortune, and even a little notoriety.
A writer writes books for profit. Some of what he writes is fiction. A man can write fiction and claim it is true. A well known fiction writer started a religion based on his fiction (L. Ron Hubbard). People believe what he presented because it gives them direction and it gives them hope. But like anything else contrived, it is intangible. There is no evidence in support and the mere fact it cannot be proven, even evidenced, undermines the validity of said claims. Yet people still believe...
Look, I have to believe I'll be alive next year because, if I fail to believe that, I'll stop trying. What's the point of continuing to live one's life, one's efforts, one's work, one's abiding by the stated laws of one's society, if you do not believe you will be alive tomorrow?
Belief keeps us going, whether it's religion or a little white lie that hides a terminal illness from one's thoughts. But what's the point in belief in ghosts, except to scare oneself into the notion they may be trapped in a horrid limbo for eternity?
The answer to that is --> the belief in ghosts helps one to think they do not die, but they must behave in Middle Earth or they may find themselves in a bad place. I.e., the belief in ghosts both encourages the notion of immortality and discourages bad behavior while alive.
But, it's still a little white lie...
