Default Have you ever seen a ghost?

I have, it was at Frocester Tower, a Church Steeple standing alone in the middle of the Gloucestershire countryside. It is written that the tower is so haunted that they moved the rest of the church 30 miles away leaving the tower alone in a the church grounds among the graves, some of which are opened and empty.

We witnessed the figure of a man peeking from behind the church, we waiting outside the ground of the church in our cars (there was about 4 cars full of our mates) and after waiting patiently for sometime the figure emerged and approched the gates where we were parked. We all shat ourselves and sped off into the night.

I've never been back since....very scary, I have goos pimples just typing this.

No you didn't...they do not exist except in the imagination...try another explanation of what you think you perceived.

So 4 cars full of people and all the other sightings over the years were all imagined?

It was clearly a ghost, you could see through his whiteness...

People have also see the headless horseman that patrols the Gloucester to Swindon Bypass on a number of occassions.

I have never seen one, that's not to say I don't believe that they don't exist though. Why would people make it up?

Well if one accepts the existence of ghosts then gods, angels, devils, fairies, flying spaghetti monsters etc should all exist as well...using simplistic logic.

How about UFO's? More plausible, perhaps?
