• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I've seen a ghost. My mother has seen a ghost. One of my ex girlfriends has seen a lot of ghosts. I'm not just talking about hearing stuff or seeing strange stuff happen, by the way. And no, none of us were on some kind of drug at the time etc. 100% sober and healthy during those times.

That is no evidence of afterlife, though. Whatever you say you saw and call a ghost isn't necessarily the soul/spirit/essence/etc of a dead person. But of course, you are free to believe in whatever you want. I am not saying an afterlife is an impossibility, there is just no evidence to support it. Sightings, NDEs, etc are no evidence.

Also, someone should make an "afterlife" megathread. There are like five threads about this every day.

Back in 1981, my parents bought a brand new house. It had been sold previously, but the owner died before it was finished. I lived there from 1981-2000. I had seen an old man ghost sitting on a chair in the family room many times . Since I am mentally ill, I thought it was just me and I never told anyone. Flash forward to 1999 and my dad died. My mom soon had a new boyfriend who would not spend the night. My mom said he is afraid of the ghost, who I thought she meant was my dad. She told me no, there has always been a ghost in the house that both my mom and sister had seen. I then told her I saw it too. No doubt on this one.

Now we will go to 2005 and my mom is in the hospital dying of cervical cancer. We are talking and she told me grandma is in the corner of the room coming towards her. I looked and saw nothing. She then closed her eyes and died right then. My grandma had passed away in 1996. I have no doubt grandma came and got my mom and they are together now. I also have no doubt my mom is going to come for me too, since my time is very near.

To me it's quite strange reading about people seeing 'ghosts' while I haven't received one single visit from my grandmother (the only family member that actually wished well on me, she died 15 years ago).
Haven't dreamed about her, haven't received a single sign about the possibility she might still be here around in one form or another. I'm 100% positive that she'd sent me an irrefutable proof of the fact that she can interact with me whenever, only if she had been given the chance to do so.

Though I'm writing this out of pure speculation, since I don't believe in an afterlife.

Some people greatly underestimate the power of the sub-conscious mind.

It sounds especially ridiculous when it comes from Christians (the majority of the people in here) because it shows how they completely misunderstand the teachings of the religion. "It is appointed for men to die once, and after this comes judgment" (Hebrews 9:27).
I will translate this - you either go to heaven, or you go to hell. There is no intermediary state.

Now back to science, a lot of "phantom presences" can be explained by the presence of the infrasound, electromagnetic waves and simply our own beliefs. Not to mention the fact that our general scientific knowledge is still limited, especially in the field of neuroscience.

Just because the Greeks thought that a thunderstorm is a sign of Zeus doesn't mean it's true. Accordingly, just because somebody thinks ghosts are real doesn't mean it's true.

The mind sees what is wants to see.
