Do you believe in spirits/ghosts?

Some backround for this question. The owner of my parents work died this last week and my dad has been very upset over it and cried most of the weekend. Ealier tonight, my youngest sister (4yrs old) told my dad that his boss was talking to her and didn't want him to cry anymore, that he was okay, and wanted my dad to stay safe. Now, on one hand, yeah she couldve made this up because she knew he was upset. But...my family doesn't doubt the presence of spirits.
My mom's best friend's son use to talk to his great-grandmother. She was dead long before he was born and had never even seen a picture of her.
My cousins use to see people when they were about 2 and 3 and would tell my aunt to tell the people to stop talking so loud.
They say children are so open-minded that it's easier for them to see spirits.
My sister just really got to my dad tonight and I was curious what others thought.

  • Yes I do believe in spirits and I think children can be more sensitive to these apparitions and often see things that adults don't.

  • I do.
    After my own personal experiences and testaments of friends and people I trust, I think there are far too many situations that can be considered coincidence.

    Children are definitely more susceptible to paranormal occurrences.

  • Yes I do but not as the spirits of those passed on. I know them as demons, I grew up seeing what I tought were my dead parents but now I know that when you die that's it. You don't go on living cause you're dead you "asleep" if you will you know nothing feel nothing :) So if I sense demons now I plead the blood of Jesus over me for protection :)
