Ghosts have been argued about for years. Some believe, some want to believe, and many just can’t. On October 29, 2005 CBS made a poll and the stats that they received are surprising. The first question that they asked was, do you believe in ghosts? 48% said yes, and 45% said no. It was seen that 56% of women believe in ghosts, and 38% of men believe in ghosts. From the polls it was said that ages 18 - 45 were more likely to believe in ghosts, while people older than that were less likely to believe. When they asked have you ever seen or felt the presence of a ghost 22% said yes and 77% said no. CBS says “The most religiously observant Americans are most likely to say there is an afterlife” This means that people who believe in religion, such as being Christian or Jew, believed in ghosts, while others who weren’t religious were less likely to believe. But really though, do you believe in ghosts? Another entity in your house, invisible to the eye. How could something you can’t see be taking over others’ consciousnesses. This is referred to as possession. Possession is when a ghost, or demon, take over one’s consciousness. There have been many people who have been “possessed”. One case of possession was when a man who, out of the blue, started acting strange, the wife thought he was having an affair. After that, they got divorced. Even after this though, he still acted strange. One night he brutally killed his wife and walked out onto the street proclaiming that the blood that had he was drenched in, was that of Satan’s. After that he was sentenced to a life in prison, and he has no recollection, memory, of the night.At the time this murder was one of England's most famous.
You are going out to work. You put your clothes on, slowly put on your socks, and make sure everything is clean before you leave. You get in your car when you notice your house door is open. You didn’t leave it open, of course, but maybe it just slid open at the last second. You get out of your car to close the door when you notice that inside your house everything had been thrown around. The vase containing the ashes of your grandmother has been shattered into a million pieces. No one could have gone into your house, rummaged through your things, and stolen them in the short amount of time you gave them. Well that's not true. Someone didn't go through your stuff, something did.
You might have experienced a poltergeist. A poltergeist is a ghost that makes physical contact such as, throwing around objects, loud bangs, or screams. A poltergeist would have been the one that threw around all of the items in your house. An example is a doll. If your doll moves its head or body without any forces acting on it that would normally move it, it’s probably possessed.
There have been many recorded cases of poltergeists acting on people. One instance of this was in South Shields. Two people named Marc and Marianne and their 3 year old son were unlucky enough to haunted by a poltergeist. One night the parents heard their baby crying so like any parent they went to put him to bed again. But what they saw that night wasn’t what they were expecting. Most of everything had been thrown against the floor . Also, a message had been written on the baby’s whiteboard and it was apparently a sign of the poltergeist trying to talk to the parents. Also, there was a text message from the ghost that couldn't be tracked to any phone
