If you believe in “ghost and demon”, you’re not alone. Cultures all around the world believe in spirits that survive death to live in another realm. In fact, ghosts are among the most widely believed of paranormal phenomena: Millions of people are interested in ghosts. Ghosts have been a popular subject for millennia, appearing in countless stories, from the Bible to “Macbeth,” and even spawning their own folklore genre: ghost stories. Part of the reason is that belief in ghosts is part of a larger web of related paranormal beliefs, including near-death experience, life after death and spirit communication.
If you don’t believe in ghosts here are 10 reasons you should read:
1.The Immutability of Energy
If you have some basic knowledge about physics, you must know this. If you don’t I’ll tell you. One of the most important physics fact about energy is that it cannot be destroyed or created. It can only be transferred from one form to another form. For example, energy from the sun is taken in as energy in plants which they transfer it into fruits. When we eat the fruits we get the energy. So enough science for now, hah let’s get back to the topic. Energy is only transferred from one form to another and since human body is also a storage box of a lot of energy, when the body dies the energy must transfer from the body to some other form. This form though is not seen by visible eyes but can be detected by various other means and does exist so as to balance the energy in the world.
2. Medium Contact
I recognize that the history of séances and medium contact with the dead,known as necromancy, has been rife with fraud for centuries, making it easy to dismiss the concept of ghosts out-of-hand for that reason alone. However, hoaxing does not proof that something isn’t true; it only demonstrates that people are very clever about tricking others. There have been studies made on the validity of those who claim to be able to contact the dead, with some interesting results—at least in a few cases.
Of course, because of the history of fraud so prevalent within the psychic community, it has been difficult to take any studies that try and scientifically validate such claims seriously. However, double blind testing done by Harvard trained psychologist Doctor Gary Schwartz at the University of Arizona, on a number of supposed mediums, suggested that at least some of them had an uncanny ability to acquire information that could only be known to the deceased. While his methodology has been virulently attacked by the orthodox science community, for those who approach his research with an open mind, his evidence is compelling and strongly suggestive of post-mortem existence.
3. Historical Precedence
If ghosts and demons were a recent phenomenon like UFO or Big Foot, it would have been easy to discharge them as a side-effect of our culture’s overactive imagination. But a huge repertoire of stories of ghosts and demons date back to around thousands of years ago. Reports of other worldly creatures can be seen in the writings of prehistoric Greeks and Romans, and pointing out of a ghost can also be found in the Old Testament Book of 1st Samuel, so the belief has been around a long time. That still doesn’t provide evidence, of course, but it does tell us that we are not the first generation to grapple with the proposal that the death might come back to haunt the living organisms, which suggests that the ancients encountered things every bit as bizarre way back then as their modern counterparts do today.
4. Animals can feel them
The presence of ghosts or paranormal spirits is felt by most of the animals if the spirits are in the nearby areas. There have been instances where tamed animals behave awkwardly in some strange places. They can feel the change in environment in a more enhance manner than us, they can sense the air. For example, dogs start barking at nothing and no one. These all indicate the presence of some spirit nearby.
5. Eyewitness Accounts
It’s astonishing how many people claim to have personally seen a “Ghost and Demon”. According to some polls, as many as 25% of Americans (with similar percentages elsewhere in the world) claim to have actually been in the presence of a ghost or “spirit.” That’s a monstrous 75 million people in this country alone. And that’s just those who are willing to admit it; the numbers may be even higher for people who repress their experiences for religious or personal reasons.
Even if we discount a large percentage of these as imagination, mistaken identity, or outright hoax, the fact that millions of people around the world claim to have seen a ghost with their own eyes has to be taken seriously. What’s especially undeniable is the fact that most people who claim to have seen a ghost either didn’t believe in them beforehand or were not expecting to see one, reducing the chances that their imaginations were playing tricks on them.
