Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

but like Elizabeth, it depends on the definition of the word "ghost". Ghosts as white figures drifting around and through walls, occasionally wailing- no I don't believe that. But I have seen and heard too many things that I don't feel can be explained by rational scientific thinking (and I am a scientist by education)- well not as yet anyway. So yes- I do believe that there are phenomena which are "paranormal" ie they are outside of our current understanding and knowledge. Whether we will one day have an explanation for these things, I don't know. Science and human knowledge has made great strides, but I think it is arrogant to assume that we can explain everything.
