Ghosts are said to be unsatisfied soul. When man evolved, he was not aware of soul this is proved from ancient civilizations like Egyptians, Sumerians, Babylonians etc., whose religions are well documented. At a place called Catal Huyuk in Turkey an ancient civilization of 6000 BC antiquity was discovered in Nineteen Sixties. Here archeologists have discovered skeletons buried with grave goods inside the main room of their homes. So it can be concluded that neither they had any idea about ghosts and nor they were bothered by ghosts. More over from ancient times, all over the world, people believed in after-life i.e. life after death. Same belief existed in Indus Valley civilization, as they buried their dead with grave goods for comfortable living in the next life. So long man believed in after-life, he had no idea about soul. But ghost and soul are the two sides of the same coin.

There are some who believe they have had an encounter with a ghost. I'll be honest, the possibility that ghosts exist FREAKS ME OUT, but I'm not convinced...yet.

There are others who think it's silly to believe in ghosts. Seriously--believing in something you've never seen and can't be proven is a tall order.

A ghost is said to be the apparition of a dead person. They are usually seen to be similar in appearance to that person, and are often encountered in places he or she frequented, or in association with the person's former belongings.[citation needed] The word "ghost" may also refer to the spirit or soul of a deceased person, or any spirit or demon.[1][2][3] Ghosts are often associated with hauntings, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "the more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of footsteps and voices, and various odors."[2]

Ghosts are a controversial anomalous phenomenon. According to a poll conducted in 2005 by the Gallup Organization, about 32% of Americans believe in the existence of ghosts.[4] The term ghost has been replaced by a ...more

Ghost is Spirit, which never dies. Its the truth that there are spirits-both good and bad--ever tried planchettes--i have and the spirits come. but its bad for health on a regular basis.
i have seen images, not directly, but from my side vision, like some breeze or silhoutte wafting away. You can feel their presence but they have never harmed me.
