Ghosts in The Attic

…or bats in the belfry.

I've always wondered why most people view supernatural events, ghosts or horrific sightings with such a negative eye. Some people sensitive to the supernatural have been accused of taking mind-altering substances or being wonky in the head.


Is it fear? Are skeptics so afraid of what might exist that they endow themselves with the arrogant right to declare infallibly that ghosts, spirits and monsters do not exist?

If so, what causes this fear? Is it that it opens an entire realm that they cannot control? Or is it more personal…if there are spirits there is life after death and perhaps our actions or inaction here do play a role in our final destiny?

Or are they really that arrogant to believe that their view of reality is the true view of reality and nothing else exists?

Points to ponder.

Me, I'll stick with admitting my ignorance thanks.

I can say ghosts exist because I've seen and felt them. Spirits too. I've had supernatural experiences too and you can call me batty if you want -- I think they're cute.

As for the rest…I've never seen anything out of cryptozoology (such an intriguing field by the way) but I don’t see why such strange and interesting animals couldn't exist.

In the end I think the question is more -- why wouldn't they exist and who are we to place limits on this world and this universe when really…we know so very little about it.
