Strange things do happen as did at the Sandburg home. In December 1968 some friends and I were on a December camping trip to Mount LeConte. We were young and all had been drinking beer and had grown lazy, ignoring the cold and our dwindling campfire. Out of the woods appeared Daniel Boone and Chief Blackfish of the Shawnee. What was really strange was they had Old Yeller with them. We guessed that they must have hooked up with Old Yeller on the "other side". They brought wood and put on our campfire, probably saving us from freezing to death on that cold night.

Why are you writing twenty years later to a newspaper to ask him a question. He has a radio show you can call and talk to him.
I may be missing something but this letter to the editorial makes no sense to me.

With all due respect.

1) If you are religious od any denomination then ghosts can't happen. Christian, Jews, Islam all believe the soul ascends to some heaven type place. Some believe in purgatory or hell. In no case does the spirit, outside of books and movies, just hang around. Other religions believe in reincarnation and well that speaks for itself in the whole spirit hanging thing.

2) If you do not have religious faith then you believe the body has no spirit and you simply cease to exsist at death. No spirit, no spirit, get it? Some may alter their nonreligious belief system to allow for ghosts but lets be honest if you make it up does it really count?

In the end believe what you wish and enjoy your life. After all you don't know me and this is just my opinion. The opinion of someone with only my logic and no special knowledge. So you can feel free to just disreguard my insight as you see fit.

I am not religious at all, and don't really believe in god, but I do believe we all have a spirit. I also believe some can stay here after we die. I don't know what happens to us when we die except we don't exsist anymore. I think people that die with unfinished business sometimes stay to get a message across and then they move on to where ever. I didn't realize that "christians" didn't believe in ghosts. You have enlightened me. Thanks. That is very interesting.

Many Christians do believe in ghosts. Ghosts are simply those who have passed over but still have some unfinished business here. Once that business is complete, they move on. I've never seen a ghost, but I do think they do exist. Christianity is replete with stories of ghosts, the most obvious of which is Christ appearing to his apostles 3 days after His crucifiction. Ghosts abound in our western NC area.A spirit seeking to complete the work for which he/she was put here to do.

Well the fact - indisputable - is that it doesn't matter what you believe, the reality is what it is. That means that something - or nothing - will happen to you when you die, and no matter what you believed during the time you were alive, it's not going to be different. There are many things we don't understand, and there are many possible answers. The only really really dumb position is that some unprovable answer is therefore "impossible." If you don't actually know, then anything is possible.

With all due respect, Christians DO believe in ghosts or spirits. Ever hear of the Holy Ghost (or Holy Spirit)? And there are many mentions of evil spirits.

You're right, there are many references to ghosts in the bible, but I personally don't know of too many truly religious people that actually believe that ghosts exist. I've always been interested in the paranormal, but rarely do I bring it up unless I'm among other enthusiast. I've never understood why more people aren't facinated by the unknown. I WANT to know that my deceased loved ones are near me and at peace.

IMNSHO there are "many truly religious people" who aren't necessarily believers.

During one song at my grandmother's funeral, my Mom said she 'saw' her parents holding hands and said, "Mama smiled and Daddy winked at me." (I had never in my life heard her refer to her parents as 'Mama and Daddy,' only 'Mother' and 'my father.') All three of Mom's brothers said they "felt something" during that same song.

We will probably need a theology major in on this but as I understand it from a childhood of being dragged to church. Those are not examples of the woman in the white dress, poltergeist, resident spirits, spectral emminations, vaporous ghost, or any other collective myth that some have chosen to embrace for excitement or fear.

Again I was clear that believe as you will but there were simply a couple of points I needed to make. So far aside from people going well I picked and chose to believe my way without logic or fact to back it up. I don't see where anyone has disputed me.

Matthew 14:25-27 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear.

If they didnt believe why would they say that?



Matthew 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

A soul at unrest?

There is also a lot of talk of angels. ;)

I have read books detailing peoples' peaceful
encounters with angels. Some other posters are
right, both ghosts and angels are mentioned in the
Bible. There is also accounts recorded in the New
Testament several times where Jesus Christ drove
out demons from people.
