You'd think a random burst of imagination would produce something more age appropriate, such as Teletubbies at the mall instead of creepy people at a funeral home. Still no proof of course, just an interesting thing to ponder.
Like all paranormal stuff the stories are anecdotal and lack any real proof. They aren't repeatable. There are also so many hoaxers that its hard to trust anyone's story. Whether ghosts are real or not, the experiences are, so for the individual they are real events. Without a common frame of reference, it's just creepy stuff that's fun to talk about.
Why do you think ghost hunters was so successful? The ghosts weren't the stars the people with RI accents running around looking for ghosts were. I liked the first few seasons before they started to take themselves too seriously.
So, to my kid the ghosts were a real event. To me, it's just as creepy as if he was looking at a fuzzy tv screen and then said "they're here.".
Anyone else have any creepy experiences?
