Question of the Week #2

QuestionDo you believe in ghosts or evil spirits? Would you be willing to spend a night alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted?*

Ghosts? No. Evil spirits? Yes. I don’t believe that the human soul lingers after it leaves the body. I believe that once your body dies, your spirit goes to one of two places. However, I do believe that evil spirits exist and that their purpose is to deceive and confuse. That said, I think it’s entirely possible that, what people perceive as “ghosts” are actually some of those evil spirits taking on the form of lost loved ones or people connected to certain places in the past.

No, I would not spend the night alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted. Just because I don’t believe in ghosts doesn’t mean my mind can’t play tricks on me, causing me to become scared out of my wits. I’m skeptical, not stupid.

What would you do? Would you stay the night in that creepy old house on the hill? What about the one in the neighborhood that was overgrown with weeds and shrubs that you would cross the street so you wouldn’t have to walk directly in front of it? Do you believe in ghosts? Let me know in the comments!
