Don't ghosts have better things to do other than try to "communicate" with superstitious fools in old houses at night with all the lights out?

I was raised in a manor house built in 1819 in Madison County. There were rumors that it housed "spirits", evidenced by the fact that you could hear what was supposedly a spirit, open the door to the walk-up attic when you ascended the staircase from the 1st floor. When we renovated the house, we found that the "spirit" was actually worn timbers in the stair casing that caused the attic door to shift just enough for the latch to open. I surmise that these "spirits" at Swannanoa can be similarly explained.

I find that the world is a much more interesting place if we believe in the unexplained. Don't be too quick to dismiss the possibility of such paranormal events.

Amy:
A little skepticism is in order here. You might say "What's the harm in believing in ghosts?" Have a look here: http://whatstheharm.net/ghosts.html and see for yourself. There is plenty harm in believing superstitious nonsense.

I can not say if spirits are real or not, I will not pretend I know it all like the other post seem to say. I will not ignore any evidence that is out there. I don't think any of us are as smart as we think we are so lets sweep around our own door before using our genius broom at strangers doors!

The Atlantic Paranormal Society ( TAPS)

TAPS already disproved all that stuff was complete bunk! When you are tired and up all night you can attempt to make any sound become what you want to interpret it to be. Also TAPS showed that car head lights play into what you may be viewing from reflecting surfaces, such as windows, shadows appearing from moonlight. TAPS already proved that all you are seeing are natural phenomena and attempting to make something appear that isn't there. Large houses creak from the expansion of heat and contract at night when it cools down. Mice scurry about inside the walls. Air conditioning when it comes on expands the air inside a room and can make doors "move" on their own. Opening a door can also cause a small vacuum in a room and pull another door shut if it's slightly ajar. Also a lot of photos of "ghosts" have been faked to show an apparition. If a time exposure is made, the casting of reflected light from other sources and the movement of time can make an apparition appear. People walking in and out of a timed photo will even show up as a "ghostly" image.

I also forgot to mention I went on one of these expeditions just out of curiosity about three years ago. In addition to the findings I mentioned in the last post, dust particles reflect light as well as insect wings from flying moths. Insects make streaks on camera as does dust. Also heard a lot of insect activity such as crickets, and beetles scurrying about. Recording equipment can amplify sounds from distances. Natural phenomena!!

Hey Buzz, How about having TAPS Director Jason Hawes give me a call and we can discuss how they disproved our evidence. I have investigated with both Tango and Steve before and they have a little more tact in how they approach things. We are very careful to screen the evidence that we use, that is why it took a month to get things up. Everyone has there own opinions about the Paranormal and we don't look down upon anyone. We also don't look to personally attack any other teams that enjoy this field that we love and devote many hours to. There are a lot of experts in this field and we don't classify ourselves as that. Its the field of the unknown. I would love to meet the person that knows everything about it.
