In my last article I mentioned that ghosts and not as cut and dried and plain and simple as you might think, there are many variations to a ghost, I’d like to continue with this so let’s look at some other explanations that may explain ‘some’ ghostly sightings.

While the Stone Tape theory seems valid i'm still old school. Ghosts do exist, i've experienced them, and no rocks were involved.

The problem are those facts, they wont show up for cameras,are always fleeting and usually there is no evidence at all. I inclined to believe that people are haunted rather then places. Also what with the ghost loving to make footstep noises and open and close doors. Its fun entertainment though.

Stone Tape was an interesting theory. As a EE I don't get how it could have retained energy then released it into 20,000 volt each paddles. At 20,000 volts each in a humid environment the paddles could easily arc.Perhaps they intended to use that in some way. I have no idea how such could be an input. The 18 century would be the 17nn's. Did recorders exist then? Maybe he meant the 19 century. (The first gramophone records were made in 1889.)

The main problem with this line of discussion is that it is all make believe and pretend based conjecture. In lieu of actual facts to discuss, we are left to just make theories up. That is why science largely ignores reports of this type of phenomena. Because there is nothing tangible to actually study. Smash rocks apart all you want, there is no recognizable recording device or system inside. That in itself should be the end of such conjecture, but obviously it isn't.

Ghosts do exist, I saw one.  Its one of those things you have to experience yourself to believe they are real.

I am not saying ghosts don't exist. I am saying that trying to concoct or dissect any mechanics behind the phenomenon, as this article is attempting to do, is impossible and nothing but a huge session of make believe based on fanciful imagination and nothing more.

Some ghosts appear to be luminescent, they generate light like a glow-worm. One fellow I know who saw one, and I have no doubt he was being truthful, said it lit up a darkened room till it glided through the wall.

Where can we listen to this "stone tape pub recording"? How was this configured with the electrodes?

People make these amazing claims, but rarely follow up with anything that would make a person believe the incredible story. Everyone has heard EVP's(which this sounds like a variation of one) so let's hear the recording.

If I had a nickel for every person who showed up to this site who made incredible claims about ghosts, or UFO's or anything paranormal who claimed to have incredible pictures or mind blowing recordings...that created an incredible claim, then slinked away when asked about the film or audio...

If I was going to be writing a story about the pub, I would already have the audio uploaded and linked before getting to the third paragraph.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

I was skeptical myself until an incident with my daughter. She had seen my step brother, whom passed away when she was less than a year old, at my dad's home. My daughter (she was 2 1/2 by this time) wanted to go to the room upstairs (which was my step brothers room before being converted into an office). I told her no and my daughter replied "but he does" and I asked her "who does?" and she said, "the boy that lives upstairs" ......and that just freaked me out.

I do not care what anyone says, 2 yr. old children do not make up stories about such things. Especially since she never met him, did not know that "the boy upstairs" was deceased and they just simply can't comprehend making up untrue stories about ghosts. Hell, my daughter didn't even ever use the word ghost.

So I am convinced to this day that spirits (or ghosts) do in fact, exist.

The American dream................never got a proper burial.

My friend lived across the street from me and one day she came over like she always did and told me "I could'nt sleep over because her house was haunted". I used to be so bummed that she would always want to sleep over at my house and I could'nt at hers and she continued to tell me that there was a man who always used to watch her sleep and it freaked her out. Now I lived in this house for 26years and I can honestly say that NO One ever spent more than 1-2 years in that house as a matter of fact it is for sale right now!
