  • op- (sorry didn't read the other replies, there are too many right now, lol)
    Yes an atheist can believe in Ghosts.. but not in the sence of a soul.. there are a lot of different theories about what a Ghost is.. it could be energy left behind (not talking about a soul, but actual particles of them that are left behind, which in a way can act like a recorder), it could be a different demention that we occationally glipse, it could be hallucinations (caused by high EMF's in the home, mold, chemicals, carbon monoxide poisioning, etc), they could be spirits. etc..

    Since there is so much we don't know about them, and how they came to be, etc.. anyone can believe in them.. as I said, I'm an atheist, but believe in the Paranormal (ghosts).. however I believe scientifically their are explainations for them.. be it hallucinations caused by certain things, or energy left behind..

  • LOL I have never thought about that.

    But I do absolutely believe in God. Not so sure about the ghost thing, but I do believe we dont understand or know all there is. So who knows?

  • Could it be that ghost can be seen at times as well as object moving and recordable voices as well?

  • Sorry about the bad grammar.

    Answer by pnwmom at 9:11 PM on Mar. 15, 2009

  • pnwmom: That can be VERY debated. Most things like sightings or recorded things have a simple logical reason or solution. no one that I know of has ever proven ghosts beyond a shadow of a doubt.

  • Well people ask me all the time how can I believe in something i don't see.
    The same question could be used in this situation.
    Unless people see things...which would question their sanity.

  • You got a point and the same could be said for when people say they hear God. Some would question their sanity, as well as people who see ghost.

  • It is a good question that could be asked to the haunted realm on here just in case you don't find the answers you are searching for don't help you.

  • Well, noone has ever seen God... But many people have seen ghosts. Just because there is no scientific "proof", and even then it just depends on who you talk to, doesn't mean there isn't proof. I have seen spirits, to me there is TONS of proof. But then I can't understand how someone couldn't believe in the gods either...

  • I write ghosts off like Santa clause and the Easter bunny.
