Are ghosts real?

I believe that our distant ancestors, prehistoric humans, would have faced the same enigmatic question that continues to haunt us this very day: "Do ghosts truly exist? Furthermore, I am convinced that these early humans would have been totally awestruck at the mysterious life-force that not only animated them and their fellow humans, but also breathed energy into the many animals that roamed within their world.

Through extensive archaeological excavations, numerous grave sites have been discovered in various locations around the world, such as Iraq, Croatia, and Israel. These findings have been estimated to date back at least 60,000 years, with some potentially dating as far back as 100,000 years. In my view, it is unlikely that our primitive ancestors would have gone through the effort of burying their clan and family members with personal possessions, trinkets, and talismans unless they had a strong belief in the continuation of the life-force and the notion of an afterlife. Furthermore, if one of their tribal members or loved ones died, I am certain they would have paused for a moment to reflect on the whereabouts of that life-force.

A former skeptic

Back in October 2009, I initially developed and launched this website under a completely different domain name. Before that time, I had always maintained a somewhat skeptical and doubtful attitude towards the existence of ghosts, hauntings, or anything related to the supernatural or paranormal. Prior to my personal experiences, my belief in ghosts was solely based on their depiction in Hollywood movies and TV shows, or as a coping mechanism for those who fear death and dying and seek solace in the notion of an afterlife. Despite my initial disbelief, I cannot deny the strange and unexplainable events that took place in my own home. After much contemplation, I felt a strong sense of obligation to expand my perspective and thoroughly reconsider the existence of ghosts and the paranormal. Including the idea of ghosts and hauntings. Throughout that period, I had not yet fully embraced my belief, and instead continued to hold onto certain reservations and harbored a sense of skepticism. After thoroughly examining and thoughtfully taking into account all incidents and occurrences, it is my firm belief that most of these events can be attributed to natural phenomena. However, there is a significant portion of it that I have to say is unexplainable and could be related to ghosts and/or other entities.

Regarding the existence of ghosts and hauntings, I found myself indecisively perched on the middle of the proverbial fence, unable to fully commit to either believer or skeptic. It wasn't until I began to cultivate a fascination with EVP, also known as, electronic voice phenomenon, that my beliefs began to shift, and I became more of a believer in the existence of ghosts and the supernatural. After watching numerous television programs centered on ghost hunting, I was left feeling unconvinced by the supposed evidence of ghosts, particularly by the use of electronic voice phenomena (EVP) as evidence. While I did not overtly challenge the credibility of these programs, I did maintain a healthy level of skepticism towards their EVP recordings. Upon initial observation, my belief was that a significant portion of the audio consisted of seemingly random sounds or noises that vaguely resembled words. I would attribute much of it to auditory pareidolia, a term used to describe the psychological phenomenon of perceiving familiar patterns or sounds in random or meaningless noise.

After discovering a fascination for Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP), I decided to invest in a digital voice recorder for myself to capture any potential unexplainable sounds. In addition to my previous actions, I also felt it was important to conduct a few EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) sessions within my own home. The ultimate goal of this experiment was to either dismiss the noise or static as insignificant background interference, or to present more tangible evidence of electronic voice phenomena to support the existence of ghosts, spirits, or other paranormal occurrences. Through conducting multiple electronic voice phenomena (EVP) sessions in the comfort of my own home, I have come to the conclusion that there is definitely an unexplainable presence of supernatural or paranormal activity within my home that I simply cannot make sense of. After conducting a mere fraction of the necessary research, I can confidently declare a handful of indisputable facts.

Based on this evidence, am I supposed to conclude that I now believe in the existence of ghosts? Not necessarily! As a mere mortal, I am unable to confidently assert that ghosts are indeed a concrete reality, as no one has been able to provide tangible proof of their existence. However, after being exposed to the concept of EVP, and other personal experiences, I have come to the realization that my previously close-minded skepticism was misguided and has since adopted a more open-minded perspective. In fact, I now believe that ghosts, spirits and other paranormal entities likely do exist.

Science and the paranormal

It is widely known that the majority of mainstream scientists hold a skeptical perspective when it comes to the existence of ghosts, hauntings, and other paranormal phenomena. The majority of these highly trained and knowledgeable scientists tend to dismiss any information or claims that cannot be proven through rigorous experimentation using the scientific method within controlled laboratory conditions. Based on their actions and statements, it seems that their perspective is that if something cannot be observed, accurately measured, or quantified in a controlled laboratory setting, then it is automatically considered non-existent or irrelevant. Despite the lack of quantifiable and verifiable evidence in a laboratory setting, I do not believe that the existence of ghosts, spirits, or other paranormal phenomena can be discredited. There are countless personal accounts and experiences that suggest otherwise, and the limitations of the scientific method should not be the only determining factor in such a complex and subjective topic. Despite vehemently rejecting the concept of ghosts, hauntings, and the supernatural, these same scientists grapple with the complexities of understanding consciousness and the very nature of reality itself.

The scientist Sir Roger Penrose and Dr. Stuart Hameroff have proposed a fascinating theory known as Quantum mind or Quantum consciousness. This theory explores the concept of consciousness and its connection to quantum mechanics, challenging traditional views on the nature of the mind and brain. This theory goes way beyond my ability to comprehend or understand, so if you would like more information, please click on the link.

In the past, I have spent many hours watching various educational programs featured on the "Discovery Science Channel," delving into the vast and mysterious topics of the universe, black holes, and other intriguing space phenomena. These informative programs showcase brilliant astrophysicists and scientists delving into the complex world of string theory, exploring the mind-boggling concept of 9 or possibly even 10 additional spatial dimensions. Additionally, there are certain scientists who believe in the concept of multiple universes, but also postulate the existence of an infinite number of universes, collectively known as the multiverse. In addition to their other discussions, they also delve into the complex theories of dark matter and dark energy, but unfortunately, they are unable to offer any solid proof or evidence to support their existence. It is truly astonishing to note that these supposedly rational and logical scientists, who have such strong belief in their unproven and peculiar theories, often completely disregard the possibility and potential existence of supernatural phenomena such as ghosts, hauntings, and other paranormal or supernatural occurrences.

The widely known quote "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence" was initially coined and popularized by the renowned astronomer, the late Carl Sagan. Despite the statement being made, I feel compelled to ask: where exactly is the tangible evidence or proof that can solidly back up the validity of some scientific theories, especially compared to the theories and beliefs of the paranormal? It is widely accepted and common practice among scientists to use mathematical methods to provide evidence and confirmation for their proposed hypotheses. However, the effectiveness and accuracy of the mathematical equations they use ultimately depend on the skill and expertise of the mathematicians responsible for their development. If their logic contains an error, then it can be concluded that there is also an error within the following equation. Furthermore, it should be noted that even the most renowned experts in this field openly acknowledge that their theories and beliefs can occasionally contradict one another. Additionally, despite their extensive research and progress in the field, scientists have not yet been able to fully develop and solidify their highly anticipated and much-discussed "theory of everything."


This site is dedicated to my late wife, Sally. Sally passed away on February 15th, 2023, the day following our 52nd wedding anniversary. Sally was the love of my life and I firmly believe that we are soul mates, destined to reunite in the afterlife. Sally passed to complications of Alzheimer's disease.
