Do Ghosts Exist? Exploring the Paranormal

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

According to some studies, a whopping third of Americans believe in ghosts. So Laci Green decided it’s time to look at the shaky science behind the paranormal. And what she finds might just explain away that bump in the night.

Are Ghosts Real? Science Says No-o-o-o

“If you believe in ghosts, you’re not alone: A 2005 Gallup poll found that 37 percent of Americans believe in haunted houses, and about one-third believe in ghosts.”

Ghosts are all in your mind

“When scientists wrote in a recent issue of the journal Nature that they could induce phantom effects — the sensation of being haunted by a shadowy figure — by stimulating the brain with electricity, it made perfect neurological sense.”

Electrodes trigger out-of-body experience

“Stimulating brain region elicits illusion often attributed to the paranormal.”

Is the brain hardwired for religion?

“As we learn more about what happens in the brain during a religious experience, is it possible that we’ll ever be able to create them ourselves?”

Brain Chemicals That Cause Sleep Paralysis Discovered

“During the most dream-filled phase of sleep, our muscles become paralyzed, preventing the body from acting out what’s going on in the brain.”

Ask the Brains: What Is Sleep Paralysis?

“Attacks by demons, ghostly visitations and alien abductions: some people are certain they have experienced such paranormal events. In reality, many of these victims probably had an episode of sleep paralysis.”

Sometimes we use science because we’re afraid of the unknown sometimes we use to give us comfort even though it might not be right

I know i'm super late on this topic, but what if these "ghosts" have something to do with a dimension we can barely perceive? They could possibly be 4th dimensional objects after death. It's not just human formed ghost but other animals as well. We can't observe things like that very well in our perceived 3 dimensional world. It's just like particles popping in and out of existence. Please somebody tell me i'm wrong. I personally witness multiple paranormal events, and they have been consistent, and although i'm a sceptic to a lot of things outside the laws of physics, I can't help but wonder do we truly understand everything.

The question to ask if any of us have experienced anything.
Until you have it will change your perspective.

Materialist science can't even proof consciousness so i believe that ghosts most be possible maybe they exist out of exotic energies on in the shape of quantum physics (and) or they are from higher dimensions i believe science should be open about it for the paranormal

Are ghosts not real if they are figments of your imagination? What is real to you could be unreal to someone else

The truth is science proves nothing how do we know that matter or particals are what science thinks they are how u know the electrodes are what they are u dont science knows nothing its the ultimate con science is just hopes an fantasy void is all science can prove that theres something in the void we cant see or explain.

I know I'm just a random YouTube commenter… but if you read this. I promise you. I know for a fact that "ghosts" if thats what you want to call them.. are real.. I don't know exactly what they are.. or how they work.. but they are undeniably a real thing.

Connor Kingston January 4, 2021 - 12:20 AM

Well ask yourself why would people in the 12th century say anything like ghosts people in the 1900's said "pictures in a box impossible" 1200 ghosts are real I mean ghosts are even above TVs but believed that. No reason to lie to a village either you got nothing from it.

Ghosts are not real.. they were invented by "someone" to inject fear in our brains , this "ghost" project is very well made.. they made it because if a human being has fear implanted in the brain it is much easier to control that human being with fake information that is being spread on the TV , and lots and lots of tactics made by "someone" to control the human mass on the earth ! DON'T BELIEVE IN GHOSTS , this fake subject was made just to control your mind in a way that you wouldn't realise ! Be very careful !

i would say the helmet doesn't fully discount ghost because it could just activate a part of our brain that sees ghost
