Yes I do believe in ghosts
No I don't believe that they exist
Alright, but being a consciousness flying through walls, for sure breaks the laws of physics. But if something breaks the laws of physics, it doesn't mean that the thing don't exist (dark matter). It just means, that you haven't recorded it, yet.
Also rocks do move, the earth is a rock and it's flying through space really quickly right now.
edit: Would you count computer signals being sent through walls as a consciousness flying through walls? Because that certainly doesn't break any laws of physics.
This isn't speculation, it's a failiure of ghosts to meet their burden of proof because their proponents always fall back to 'ah but you can't prove they don't exist', which is a double negative.
If you check shirtfag's youtube channel, there's this video "Mexican girl ghost", check it out.
I still can't see if it's fake or not.
The best thing about the poll is that people who voted that they were theists also vote that they believe in ghosts.
A conversation with them might go something like this:
What happens when you die?
You go to heaven or to hell.
Are you sure?
You become ghosts actually.
Are you sure?
:} I believe a lot of things
In JV 47% of people emminantly believe in a God, 34% believe in ghosts.
I'm very much fearing the critical faculties of this forum, what's especially funny is that the same arguments are proponed for both God and ghosts, if you believe in one you're more likely to believe in the other, but most people believe in versions of these ideas which are inconsistant with one another.
It's a decloration of stupidity.
Damn, Rammjet and PooZy are all over this thread.
Also, no I don't believe in ghosts.
But it would be awesome to fly trough walls and shit.

Edit: If the earth always gain energy because of gravity, wouldn't it just continue to go faster and faster?
I don't believe that spirits walk the earth, but are sent to an afterworld.
This is just newtonian mechanics, and it's the reason the international space station doesn't fall down and doesn't speed up off into space, among other things.
If ghosts are meant to stay around they too must have mass, so that gravity can act on them to make them accelerate with the earth's frame of reference. Therefore they would be detectable, but nobody has ever detected one.
If they don't show on pictures then a: the people seeing them are insane, or b: It can only be seen by human eyes. (for some reason)
or c: people claiming to see ghosts are huge liars.
If Ghosts exist they're going to be made of something that interacts with normal matter, otherwise
-people would not be able to see the ghosts
-living people, made from matter, would not be able to become ghosts anyway
so 'ghosty' particles should exist, to explain the mechanism for aparitions and spirits' supposed properities. [nobody's made nice definitions however because most people who believe in ghosts don't understand this is a criterion of proof]
Predict particles that are necessary for ghostly existance and the world's super colliders can check for them, should you dare to be proven right or wrong.
This is conservation of angular momentum, dust clouds collapsing around stars into planets spin, they don't sit their motionless waiting for somebody to push them around their stars.
Human eyes detect light that our best cameras can go beyond in frequencies and intensities, human eyes are crap, if there are ghosts out there cameras would spot them better than you could.
