    Default Are poltergeists real?

    After looking at these vids:

    What are your reactions? Do you think this is real? What would you do if you were in the above situations?

    No, they are hoaxes, usually perpetrated by adolescent children.

    There is no supernatural, and ghosts don't exist.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Hoax or not, what you say does not make what was happening in the above vids less scary and creepy. Especially if you were alone.

    And how do you know exactly if the vids are fake or not?

    I would say it all goes by really what you see and think. When you watch such videos always look for the possibility that this is an act or a hoax and how they might be pulling it off. That is the 1st thing I always try for.

    But do I believe something like this might be real; I believe something is out their that has not been explained, I don't believe everyone is pulling ones leg for attention. Heck, Even Once I had an experience I can't explain that Freaked me out. I take everything with Heavy Buckets of Salt, but something is in the world. But NEVER go out searching for it.

    Extrodinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
    Easily created video fx on Youtube do not meet that burden of proof.

    Seen hoaxes too many times.

    And we can all still be scared by seeing something that isn't real. I mean, edhopper, how would you react if you were alone in your own house and you see stuff like this happening in front of you in unpredictable places?

    It's kind of a "you'd only know if/when it happened."

    Nope. Ghosts aren't real. Neither are Poltergeists. The dead will not be coming back to us, much as we'd love them to.

    They are when I fart and there's no one else in the room to blame.

    We don't often react to new "threatening" experiences in predictable ways.

    None of these phenomena ever have credible outside witnesses, proof caught on video that can't be duplicated via cheap effects or clever editing, and are not reproducable. The first video starts out with RADIO INTERFERENCE! No, that can't be a natural, that must be supernatural in origin. It couldn't be a product of scientifically documented forces, like everything that causes radio interference, from vibrations to sunspot activity, to electrical storms to any other cause, down to a badly manufactured radio.

    Cold spot in the house? Must be ghosts; couldn't be bad insulation. Doors pop open? Couldn't be due to vibration or a badly mounted hinge.

    It is nothing more than sad, pathetic individuals in search of attention.

    There are no ghosts or goblins or demons. Mankind creates this nonsense to give name to his irrational terrors. It's psychological, not supernatural.

    While I'm usually an "While I haven't seen anything that would make me believe it, that doesn't mean I'll completely rule it out..." guy, that first video looks a whole lot like both dogs are looking at an owner/familiar human just off frame.

    That would seem to run counter to the description.
