I would like this forum to be an exploration of the delicate divide between the physical world and the spiritual world, skepticism and faith, natural and supernatural and science and religion.

Timeless questions continue to challenge contemporary society and Topix was intended to be an interactive learning experience.

Everyone is welcome and I only ask that everyone who comes here act civil and no name calling. Name calling is counter-productive and accomplishes nothing. Although it may hurt someone's feelings I always think less of the name caller.

Hey! That's why I invited you!

But OK.

I have a friend who is kind of religious. She does not drink or take drugs, but she insists that she has a ghost in her home. She even says according to her religion there are no such things as ghosts."

Has anyone had any experience seeing ghosts?
What does your religion say about ghosts?
If you are atheist what is your stand on ghosts?

I don't know about ghosts for certain (the Bible says that when you die you face judgement and your soul goes to one of two places) but the house I grew up in certainly had something in it and it was NOT nice by any means. I remember waking up in the middle of the night with my brother screaming in the bathroom, the bathroom window was broken and he claimed that a large fist had burst through the window from the outside (being that all the glass fragments were all on the inside it does lend some credibility to it)

I have seen things myself, one of them was a entity which materialized in chair adjacent to my desk, a shadowy figure with a single glowing red eye. I could have been half asleep and imaging it but it certainly scared me half to death. There was another time when I had a dream that I was being choked and when I woke up there was something standing over me choking me, a woman with a hideous face and white hair, my therapist and I believes that I may have been interpretation of a time in which my mother assaulted me in my sleep and I may have created the creature as a way to protect myself (basically to rationalize that it was a monster and not my mother because mothers don't choke their children, it would shatter my parental model)

Both cases there are reasons to dismiss my experiences as not of the supernatural however if it were to be supernatural I would have to say demon, not ghost.

God is called loving and even CS Lewis had a problem with pain. Especially interesting was the chapter on Animal Pain.

http://www.catholiceducation.org/articles/apo...

What are your thoughts on a God who allows animal abuse? Just last week a Springfield, Utah cop picked up a lady's beloved Golden Retriever and locked the dog in a fenced area with no water, food or shade for 4 days. He said he forgot. When he remembered the dog was dead. Then the cop tried to hide the fact he did this inhumane act. That dog did not deserve to die that way.

So if God supposedly even cares about the sparrow what are your thoughts on this?

Scary! So do you believe there are demons among us?

IMO, God does care, but God allows life to take place, the good and the bad.
I just don't believe God uses life/people/events as some sort of board game, if you will, moving pieces here and there causing things to happen or preventing things from happening.

You may be right and it reminds me of Stephen King's novel Under The Dome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_the_Dome

TRUE STORY

.. myself, my brother and my sister experienced something bizarre. After the death of our grandmother, my brother, who is a very logical, sane individual started to brush someone off his arms. He kept saying, "get it off of me, get it off of me," with his eyes rolling backwards. He did this for about 15-minutes. He came out of it but I went unconscious for about 1/2 hour. I can't remember much except I saw foul creatures. My brother even slapped me hard but I didn't feel it. The minute I came out of it, my sister went into. After two hours, we went to the church my grandparents attended. My sister went from hot to cold. My brother and myself just held her, released her. Then the police came.

.. they brought us to the station and called the minister of my grandmother's church. He came, spoke to my sister, and gave us the address of a Catholic Rectory about 50-miles away. Meanwhile, my sister is still gone. Five hours later, we arrived at the rectory and my sister went in. She came about 1/2 hour later but will never discuss what happened. About one month later, she converted from Mormon to Catholic and will never take the cross off that she purchased. She still refuses to discuss it and it's been 12-years ..

Wow! It would be interesting to know. At least she did not end up like this:

The physical world is real, and the spiritual world is real in the sense that it is a psychological phenomenon in the minds of those who believe in it.
