The fact that The Bible says it is a sin to communicate with the dead would seem to suggest that it is indeed possible(?). There certainly are far too many unexplained sightings and strange paranormal occurances witnessed by a great many individuals to just dismiss the possibility. Many books and videos are sold, and "ghost tours" are extremely popular in a lot of places reputed to be "haunted", so in that respect it might be said that ghosts are good for some local economies(?). I've never seen one, or a UFO either for that matter, but that is not to say they don't exist.

there are basically two types of ghosts, which are normally known as spirits and poltergeists.
spirits are the souls of dead people,
poltergeists are evil entities.
what people think as ghost are actually all poltergeists.
poltergeists have levels from one to ten, smaller the number, more powerful they are, and they pretend to be human spirits very often.
most of the spirits that psychics think as spirits are actually all poltergeist.
some can show images, videos. some can talk like human.
there are millions of poltergeist in this universe and many types of them, we just cannot count.

Ghost Hunters is the best ghost show on tv. I actually do believe it is legit. But Most Haunted, as Volke said, is pathetically fake. It's just a bunch of British people in a dark room going "Ahhh!" "Oooh!" all night. If you didn't see the picture, you could swear it's porn.

Anyway, I also believe in ghosts/spirits. As with things like Bigfoot, aliens, and the Lock Ness Monster, there is simply too much evidence for there not to be some grain of truth to it.

I won't get into the debate about what ghosts are, as we clearly don't know for sure. They could be anything from energy to actual souls of humans trapped on earth. However, there is plenty enough video, audio, and photographic evidence to prove that ghosts exists. They can't all be hoaxes, there are too many claims for that. Not everybody is a liar.

My personal take on it is this:

There are several different types of paranormal entities. Psychic imprints that are reflections of past trauma or signifigance (i.e. "residual hauntings") which I believe make up the bulk of paranormal phenomenon. Then you have actual spirits that can interact with people & objects, and manifest themselves. Intelligent hauntings. Then you get into the way out there stuff like poltergeists (more than likely mischievous or evil spirits), demons, angels, etc. which require no explanation.

I've personally had a few paranormal experiences in my lifetime, nothing monumental by any stretch of the imagination, but enough to believe that there could be ghosts & spirits.

Remains of energy, vibrations, something like that. Even every thought sends out a wave pulse that can be detected. Possible sounds and light go on almost forever just diminishing so why not brain activity that's no longer in the brain but still detectable.
Alpha waves in the brain are supposed to put it into a 'psychically' receptive mode and so these 'ghosts' could be giving out on that 'frequency' too. It's not so far fetched when you consider there are so many light frequencies and a lot of sound frequencies that do exist but aren't normally detected by humans. Who is to say they are not received in some way and detected on some level.

Ghosts are likely to be dispersed energy from a person who has died (or not). There are no studies that substantiate this and it is rightfully in the field of methphysics, because there is no measurable index to go by, so it is only fair to assume the possibility, because it is substantiated by several principles of nature and our very culture, but it should not be considered as fact by people who do not experience it.

This means that it is entirely possible and even logical phenomenon if we try to understand the impact a person's life has on her environment, how it shapes and influences it, from their smell, the imprints on the floor and the physical residue like dead skin flakes, etc. A person's house may ultimately become that person, to some fair degree, in a biological sense.

A person's ghostly image may be actually a telepathic projection as well. Consider a ghost as a cloud of energy containing data. The same data we use to write our genetic code as we live. Now imagine this electro-magnetic energy can tap into your brain. It may be able to show you who it belonged to and how that person looked.

There are several theories surrounding this, and personally I believe nothing is impossible, and there is a fair degree of speculation one can draw from existing scientifical knowledge to build a somewhat credible outlook on the matter. But without 100% reproducible experiments in this field, you'd have to say that ghosts do not exist. Only the possibilty of them existing.
