    Post Ghosts Don't Exist

    An expert is hoping to build the world's first 'haunted' house to prove ghosts do not exist.

    Psychologist Richard Wiseman and his team of researchers believe spooks are caused by a mixture of environmental factors which make people feel uneasy.

    The University of Hertfordshire academic wants to recreate those factors, such as unusual draughts, temperature variations, magnetic fields and infrasound vibrations in a £50,000 project. It follows research in which he found hundreds of volunteers were spooked by natural phenomena at Hampton Court and South Bridge Vaults in Edinburgh - two of the most notoriously haunted sites. He said: "The house would give important scientific results and go down in history."

    I REALLY like this idea. As Goya said, 'the sleep of reason produces monsters'! The 'will to demystification' is one of the noblest there is. When can (white) mankind finally, and collectively, put childish things away?

    Presumably, Loki, the money is not 'his' and is rather an academic grant! This seems a much better project for a psych department then, say, proving the great parenting capabilities of gay couples! Ah, the poverty of the academy...

    I agree. We have too much ideological and supernatural fantasies that still rule the human psyche and mind. Time to rid ourselves of this unnecessary baggage.

    Indeed, I think you are right.

    I consider this a very interesting project, although, even if successful, it would not prove that ghosts do not exist. It merely would prove that certain "ghost-like" feelings and impressions can be created by a certain environment.

    But who knows? Maybe real ghosts would find this house so comfortable that they themselves decide to settle in it and create the very impressions the scientists then ascribe to the house's design? ;P

    I have an 1895 historic mansion, and I can assure you, at least 3 times a day, we have "unexplained phenomenon".
    I do strongly believe in ghosts, as I see evidence for them every day in this Deep South Texas town.
    They are not "scary things", but rather impressions of people and times past that can express in the present.
    I like our house ghosts, they are both helpful, and a reminder of the spirit and energy of our ancestors and old kinfolk.
    And yes, we have eliminated all possible natural causes before we dared to call it "unexplained".
    I am not a nut case looking for Strange Stuff.
    The Strange Stuff finds me.
