Do You Believe In Ghosts?! (in Off-topic)

Hyrule Castle October 29 2006 2:43 AM EST

Very simple, OpVines and I are talking about ghosts, he believes them to be real, and I say that they are not. Let CB decide this once and for all... are ghosts real?

Flamey October 29 2006 2:43 AM EST

No, stupid, stupid. :)

Juzza October 29 2006 2:44 AM EST

i believe that ghosts don't exist but just the brain have electrical malfunctions causing yours eyes to see things that arent really there

Hyrule Castle October 29 2006 2:47 AM EST

according to me, thats 2 votes for no ghosts... and 0 for ghosts are real

PirateKing October 29 2006 2:51 AM EST

There are no such things as ghosts. They are figments of the imagination. Anyone who believes in ghosts is crazy.

Now if you'll excuse me, Elvis and I are going sasquatch hunting. :P

QBJohnnywas October 29 2006 2:58 AM EST

Spirits are real. My house is haunted by spirits. Whisky, Gin, Vodka...

Juzza October 29 2006 3:02 AM EST

i'm coming to your house

CoolWater [Superheros] October 29 2006 3:03 AM EST

ghosts are real. They're there and I have seen them doing stuffs. As much as you don't want to believe it but they are there.

bartjan October 29 2006 3:04 AM EST

The really interesting question is: "Do Ghosts Believe In You?"

Silatt October 29 2006 3:04 AM EST

I'd believe in ghosts, but I'm too scared of them.

WindMaster October 29 2006 3:13 AM EST

One more vote for no ghost =).

chuck1234 October 29 2006 4:55 AM EST

sorry OpVines, no ghosts, we even stalked a haunted house once, scary eerie place, but no real ghost anyplace.

Flamey October 29 2006 5:09 AM EST

"There are no such things as ghosts. They are figments of the imagination. Anyone who believes in ghosts is crazy."

now, replace "ghosts" with "honest lawyers"


PirateKing October 29 2006 5:11 AM EST

Or "Honest Politician". :P

AdminG Beee October 29 2006 5:12 AM EST

I have friend who got really drunk a while back and went home with a Monster. Frightened

Does that count?

bartjan October 29 2006 5:14 AM EST

"I see dead people"

Hyrule Castle October 29 2006 5:28 AM EST

sorry G bee but ghosts only

New totals are now 6 no ghost believers and 2 ghost believers... if i counted leo as a believer

MissingNo October 29 2006 7:22 AM EST

I don't see the point of you counting people. Since when did numbers equal facts? It could be 300 billion people who don't believe in ghosts versus 3 people that do and that hardly makes the majority right.
Unless you're into that mindset, which would mean if you lived in Germany in the World War II era you'd believe that the Holocaust was good. Was the Holocaust good? I don't know, Hyrule, why don't you go ask the people of that time? I'm sure they'd agree with it. I guess that makes them right?
And you should explain why you don't think they exist. Your intellectual depth of the argument peaked at "I've never seen them. No one of the other 4 people who are active in this channel has seen them, therefore, they must not exist."

AdminShade October 29 2006 7:25 AM EST

Of course there are 'ghosts' but not the way people usually think.

There are far more things in existence than we can just see or hear.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] October 29 2006 8:38 AM EST

Shade is right. I believe in germs.

QBJohnnywas October 29 2006 8:41 AM EST

I'm really going to go out on a limb here and proclaim that I believe that the other players in CB are real...

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] October 29 2006 9:10 AM EST

That kind of thinking will get you thrown in the loonie bin Johnny!

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] October 29 2006 9:14 AM EST

Are CBers real? It isn't just a dream?I can see my navel but do I just believe it to be real? No I couldn't dream up taxes or mirkens .Does that mean that ghosts ARE real? Hum I should take up drinking, pink ladies anyone??

QBJohnnywas October 29 2006 9:53 AM EST

You see pink ladies when you're drunk? I only ever see pink elephants...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] October 29 2006 1:42 PM EST

My cat is sure ghosts are real. Me, I'll reserve judgement until I meet one.

Agnosticism FTW!

It's possible Ghosts can exists, it's possible they don't. Until one tells me in person, I'll sit on the fence. ;)

QBJohnnywas October 29 2006 1:44 PM EST

Man who sits on fence gets splinter in bottom.

QBBarzooMonkey October 29 2006 1:47 PM EST

I used to work in a photo studio that was in an old, haunted church building...

They used to chase me out if I worked too late at night :P

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] October 29 2006 1:53 PM EST

I believe in them only when i'm drunk. Then I believe in lots of things.

Thraklight Resonance October 29 2006 2:27 PM EST

If Bast ever passes from this plane of existance, she is going to haunt some poor cb player by whispering the correct spelling for all words into his ear when he is typing a paper, using chat, and so forth.

She'll probably also giggle in his ear when he is in the shower, but that is a completely separate issue. :-)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] October 29 2006 2:29 PM EST

It's not giggling, Thrak, it's a Dove recommendation. Clean out your ears.

TBH never enough gabber October 29 2006 4:08 PM EST

put me down for a HELL YES i believe in ghosts. I just don't believe in teams bigger than two minions

Hyrule Castle October 29 2006 6:12 PM EST

ok op, about the 300 billion people believing in ghosts, only like 6.3 billion people in the world, unless u counting dead people now... which would mean im right, cause dead people can become "ghosts" so called... which means if dead people think theres no such thing as ghosts, and they are the only thing that can become ghosts i win again...

and for the record, the ... germany thing hallo cast... or whatever... (know what it is cant spell) im pretty sure more poeple in the world, thought that it was bad... (germany doesnt get a vote)

Stephen October 29 2006 6:32 PM EST

Why do ghosts wear clothes? Do the clothes die too?

That's a 'No' from me.

AdminG Beee October 29 2006 6:40 PM EST

Can't be 300 billion believers because if there's only ~6.5 billion alive now then that's more than have died in total so even doubling it we arrive at a total a lot less than 300 billion.
Of course, as many people will argue that there's not more people alive now than have died as will argue whether ghosts exist or not.

I can safely announce that when I looked in the mirror on Saturday morning I definitely thought I was looking at a ghost... After a good breakfast and another hour or two in bed though and I just looked really rough next time I checked.

Ghosts only exist in the cupboard under my stairs according to my children...

Stephen October 29 2006 7:11 PM EST

Off topic, but the general consensus is that the number of people who have ever lived is estimated at 100 billion +/- 10 billion.

All depends on at what point you want to consider an individual human. Same goes for most discussions on CB of course.

AvoidCXT October 30 2006 9:10 AM EST

One day, I was watching some reality TV show covering people moving, or something like that. This family had moved into a new house, and the five year old son saw a ghost in the middle of the night. As any rational person would do, they opened the yellow pages and found the cheapest ghost-removal service in town. This guy showed up with a funny-looking hat, a funnier-looking assistant, and a pineapple. He walked around the house, shaking the pineapple and chanting.

Ever since that day, I've been a believer.

QBJohnnywas October 30 2006 9:13 AM EST

Who you gonna call?

Halcyon October 30 2006 9:32 AM EST

Yes, they exsist. I've had all types of encounters, all of which happened with other people around, so I have an alliby. They range from watching my brother being chased after he was messing with a grave site, to ones that litteraly appeared as a huge ball of light/fire. As well as being touched, lights being turned on and off (The switch moved too, so it wasen't an electrical issue). Though, I don't believe "just anyone" can see them in form directly. I believe seeing them is a gift of sorts. Perhaps just a matter of believing is seeing.

Say what you want, I know it's there.

BootyGod October 30 2006 10:31 AM EST

I believe in cheese. Cheese tastes good with pretty much everything. I may die earlier for cheese, but still I believe in cheese.

Hmmm, but ghosts? Kinda with GL on this, though I differ in one respect.

Cheese FTW!!!

QBBarzooMonkey October 30 2006 10:37 AM EST

I like cheese! And a grilled ghost sandwich with bacon just doesn't sound very appetizing, so I agree that it is much better to believe in cheese, than ghosts.. .
