Is Your Town Haunted?

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

A ghost is a supernatural being. I believe that there are no supernatural beings, from gods to demons to ghosts. I think it's fun to get wrapped up in the fantasy that maybe a place or thing is haunted, I don't really believe it to be true.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

I believe that a ghost is a memory or strong feeling wich gets "stuck" in a particular area when violent or intense event happens...

I'm in the same boat as you. My rational atheistic self says "bull twinkies" while the part of me that remembers the two times I really thought I saw . . . something . . . and has no idea what to make of it.

Well, we are pagan and believe that at times a life force will either linger or return. It just doesn't go out like a light at the end of your life, it continues on.

When we lived in Italy, there were places that just really really freaked me the hell out.

Obviously there are going to be lingering spirits at the coloseum and other spots where gladitorial sports were held, those didn't bother me, it was the overwhelming sense of malice that some places hold that just drove me out.

We visited a convent/monestary on a hill outside of Rome that I literally walked into, turned around and walked out of and refused to go back into. I sat outside for 4 hours while everyone else finished the tour. The other girls from my dorm had nightmares for weeks.

Pompeii isn't as "haunted" as Herculaneum is. Pompeii knew what was coming, Herculaneum was thriving one minute, buried in ash the next. So there are still those that don't quite understand what happened.

They missed the "chambers" in Putnam County New York.

Those are worth mentioning.
