Why Do People Believe in Ghosts?
A Harris poll from last year found that 42 percent of Americans say they believe in ghosts. The percentage is similar in the U.K., where 52 percent of respondents indicated that they believed in ghosts in a recent poll.
I've never seen a ghost, but my sister claims she did when she was little. This is one of those "I have to see it myself" type of situations. I'm leaning towards them being real because hundreds of millions of people have seen ghosts according to various surveys and I do place some value on anecdotal evidence.
