when I was 24 I worked as a night watchmen in a newspaper bldngit is one of the oldest ones in town, when I first started the night crew that usually left around 1 or so always tried to convince me there were ghosts in the bulding and it was haunted.
I was a stern disbeliever and never fell for their crazy spooky antics .
then one night I was patroling the lower parking lot when i looked up and saw a light on in the 3rd story , I knew that since the crew left and cleared out at 1ish they could not be in there at that time,( and the only person in the building was me) .
I went up to investigate and saw that the room was empty and I turned out the light then i thought nothing of it and moved on, i then went back to the parking lot to finish my patrol.
as I walkd back to the the front doors I noticed once again that the light was on and went to check it out one more time, same thing , so I figurd someone came in without me seeing them and needed the room so to see who it was I went to the front desk and looked at the electronic log ( all employees have an electronic key and whenever someone enters or exits it prints out a name on that log no matter what door you go through).
the only log enties after 1 oclock were mine for my patrols and since I had done 4 previous rounds I knew I was the only one in the building I really thought nothing of it until that went on for 4 days and I really thought that the night crew figured a way to screw with me.
so on the fourth night I locked the doors to that room and did my patrols as normal the lights came on as I looked at the window and I saw a shadow move inside so I ran as fast as I could to the 3rd floor and found the door locked and the light was on, i the flipped it off and shut the door , I the stood at the door in the dark hall way and looke down to see a light come on from the bottom of the door so I unlocked the door as fast as I could and I opened it and nothing....... just a light that was on and no noises dead silence the entire time.
the following monday I said screw it I wont even bother with it I left it on and in my 6 patrol of the night thats when I saw him, as I walked into the library near the out of the corner of my eye less than 4 feet away, I saw a man dressed in a grey/brown suit in his mid 60's wearing a hat ,as I turned to face him he was just gone, i didnt even blink he disappeared as I turned to ask him for his i.d. at first I thought it was my mind playing tricks on me.
I told one of the night workers about it and they responded with, oh yeah weve all seen him, I said who is he (thinking I am being screwed with) and she said "come here I will show you" so she took me to the editors office(which I had never been before) and she showed be a picture in the wall....I damn near lost it when I saw the painting, it was the man I saw in the library I was dumbfounded!!!
so ever since I have had a whole new perspective on ghosts, spiriits ect..

A friend and I used to go ghost hunting. One night, around 3am, he took me to this old graveyard just off Hwy 74 between Gastonia, NC and Kings Mountain, NC (Those of you familiar with that area and it's ghost-lore would know that area as Crowders Mountain, near the legendary Lincoln Academy). We went off the road and down an access path. We got as far as we could go in the car, so we continued on foot. As we got close to the entrance of the graveyard, I heard faint whispers. The whispers got louder and louder until we were both completely freaked out. A bank of fog rolled out of the cemetary and literally surrounded us. My friend, who had done much more of this than I had, said something to the effect of, "We aren't here to disturb you, we'll leave in peace." The fog opened up as to tell us which direction to leave in, and we quickly made our way back to the car. On the way out, we saw an older model Pick-Up truck in the path blocking our way. My thoughts were, "Great. Now that I've nearly crapped my pants, someone is going to call the cops on us for trespassing... or worse." We pulled up to the truck, and inside it was an old man and two children. My friend asked him if he knew anything about the graveyard. He didn't respond. My friend asked again, and the only answer he got was a chilling, yet defined, "No." As we were leaving, I looked back to see if they had turned around to follow us. No one was there.
So to answer the question: Yes, I believe in ghosts.

I believe in ghost simply because I have a "haunting" here in my home. I recently purchased this home few months ago (1st time homeowner as well). Shortly after I move in, the door would slam every once in a while and there are no window open that would allow outdoor air to push the door close. I would have some toys in my display case or on the shelf in the garage. I'm normally the last person to leave the garage and turn off the lights. When I wake up I would be startled to see some of the toys that was in the display case on top of the display case, toys from one shelf was moved to another shelf, the lights on, and some of my tools that normally would be in my tool bags would be out and scattered around the floor. Also at night like around midnight to 3 am, if I'm up or my stepson who is 11 is up with me. He remotoe would be on the tv stand and we would be watching tv, all of a sudden would change or turn on and off. Not only that but the lving room lamp would be going on and off as well. This happens for like 5 to 10 min, maybe less. The garage thing and tv/lamp thing doesn't happen often tho. I'm deaf myself and can't hear anything but oftenly my stepson who is 11 and my daughters who is 2 and 5 would come to the living room where me and their mother are at and say what. We would be like huh, what are you talking about. They then would say I heard someone calling my name. We're like we aren't calling your name so we asked the brother/sisters if anyone called for anyone and they all said no. I think all this is strange but its cool to see those things happening. Sometimes I or my wife and children would get scared at times and sometime we would laugh. That is the only experiences we have right now and we ave only been living here for 8 months now! Oh yea, one time out of the blue in the garage, the lawnmower suddendly started and no one was in the garage. It was a pull start mower.

Someone keeps withdrawing money out of our account and leaving new shoes in my wifes closet, and she knows nothing about it! The same thing with my Joe room new toys keep appearing but I don't know anything either! Major case of a ghost if I ever heard one!

To be honest with you I have never had any experience supernatural. So I would say I am skeptical. But no one really knows.
Please...I do not want this to be turned into a Religious debate. Just stating my opinion.
Religiously speaking, I know my Bible says that when i am absent of body I am present with the Lord. So therefore I draw the conclusion that what we may see as spirits or ghosts may therefore be demons or something evil.
But then again, I have never had a supernatural experience so I really can not judge it.
Non the less though, I love to hear stories and hope to have a experience someday.

I do not believe. I think people see what they want to see or their minds fill in the gaps of events they cannot explain.
Ultimately, and this goes for most things, when someone gets their minds set to something, little to nothing will change it.
Ghosts, spirits and the like do not exist but believe what you will.

a couple years back, i was in bed with my girlfriend, laying awake i couldnt sleep that night. we always left the door open so the dog could come and go as she pleased. well about ten minutes i was still lying there with my eyes open thinking, when i heard the door open (but it was already open), as i looked over my body felt completely frozen. like one of those dreams where you are awake but cant move...but there was a shape in the doorway a dark, glistening thing that seemed to have total control of my mind and body. i never closed my eyes, but it took all my mind power to sit up where i was and i continued to stare at this creatures glowing eyes. it seemed like a very telepathic experience. when i finally was completely mobile again my whole body felt drained and weak and the door was open like it should be. i dont know what the hell it was but it felt very real.

I had a similar experience. it was 2am, was playing on my computer. I heard a female voice from the entrance of my door say "Todd". I turned around thinking it was my wife; she was in bed. I searched all over the house, Then got freaked out so i went straight to bed.
