Random Word

As I sit here, blinking myself awake over my morning coffee, I remember there were a thousand things I thought to blog about, but now can't recall one. Lol. So, I'm going to open a random website from a google search on ghost, close my eyes, and point. Then I'm going to blog about whatever word my finger lands on. So, here goes:

I landed on The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) and my finger hit the word "evidence."

Interesting. What evidence would you need to believe in ghosts? I say I don't disbelieve in ghosts, but I don't believe in them fully either. The jury is out on that one. I'd probably have to experience one for myself. A full-on apparition appearing directly before my eyes. Do I believe that we live on, beyond our physical bodies? I do, though I have doubts. On this issue, though, I have more faith that we do exist beyond our mortal life.

What about you? What do you think?

Wow, good question! The problem is evidence of the paranormal is purely subjective. It's a personal thing and for me, I know the feeling I get when I get spooked. I know the feel of chills running up and down my spine. I know how it feels when my hair stands on end. But those are feelings. Being spooked is not evidence of anything and it's certainly not belief but in those moments, it feels pretty darn close. :)

Very cool explanation, Christy :) That's it in a nutshell. Then, when it's all over, you convince yourself you just imagined all of it--while at the same time, believing you didn't. Weird, hey?
