    you know your scientific career has hit the ground when your debunking ghosts. People are always goin to argue that they are real, others will say no, and try to explain it.

    just how we are hardwired.

    get over it.

    believe what you want. ignore the trolls and people who wanna challange your belief

    I don`t know if I believe in Ghosts exactly, but it`s sure fun finding out if they exist or not.

    As for these pictures.most of them looked fake. One photo looked like a double exposure, a couple looked like a trick of lights, and shadows, one looked like it could have been photoshopped or something was wrong with the film.

    But I am willing to give them the possibility that they were authentic ghost photographs.

    1. Fake. An urban legend photo that everyone has claimed their friend photographed.
    2. Yes, a double exposure.
    3. Could very easily be a piece of cobweb or debris from the ceiling. Pareidolia is taking an indistinct blob and making you believe that you`re seeing a figure.
    4. Interesting, but could be a bird. Doesn`t help that the photo is such a poor resolution. Pareidolia could be in effect here again.
    5. The reflection of a lightsource on a painting. Say there`s a woman in the reflection and you`ll immediately see one. Pareidolia in effect.
    6. Long exposure time causing the woman`s hair to blue in the vague shape of a face. Once again, pareidolia is taking effect here.

    Read up on Pareidolia - it explains a LOT of `ghost` photos.

    Although I don`t believe most of this ghost garb, I rather enjoy pretending that the ghosts are there. It makes it more tolerable to look at these.

    The last one is someone leaning down, and someone taking a picture from above. She`s moved though so its all faded sortof thing and caught the woman in the back. The first one was on pooBrix.

    I`m open to the existence of ghosts. But no, we`ve not caught them on camera there!

    ap·pa·ri·tion: appearance of something ghostly; an appearance of a supposed ghost or something ghostly.

    Bone up on your vocabulary before your fire off a comment that makes you look like a dumbsh*t. Stay in school, pay attention in class and study harder.

    Oh look (1) fog or smoke in a vaguely human shape (2) tree branches that make a slight shape (3) refraction of light or chemical burn on photo paper (4) thing that wasn`t there when I took the photo, I swear. They MUST be ghosts!

    And the average IQ of the human race drops enough few points

    The first one looks the best, but is a fake, look above her head in the full frame, not the blow-up.You can see the triangle of shadow not fully fitting inbetween the girls legs, an beginners photoshop mistake, hey forgot to carry the color onto the object instead of next to it.

    "Its ABBERATION.....dumbpoo"

    TommyG, I love how you made yourself look like a moron. Oh wait... You have a very weak vocabulary and need to brush up on your punctuation skills as well. I think you meant "It`s" ("Its" is a possessive as opposed to "It`s" which is a contraction of "It is" as in, "It`s TommyG who is a dumbsh*t.")

    Isn`t there something called matrixing where you see what you want to see? Or like your eyes just search for familiar shapes in something, which can cause some people to believe they are seeing a ghostly face when they are not?

    Just putting out a theory.
