You're supposed to be arguing for the existence of ghosts.

It's expository how little that has become your focus - you appear to think that first you should attempt to tear down every edifice of knowledge then there might be room for your claim.

This is a characteristic of all peddlers of woo.

Here's an idea. Try reading the Forum User Agreement. That way you'll be able to work it out for yourself and avoid looking like a pudgy faced eight year old asking his Mum annoying questions every thirty seconds.

I don't know if there are spirits or not, but maybe one day, if there is empirical evidence, we can find out something. :thumbup:

The same statement would be true for Pink Unicorns, Fairies, Spiny Norman or the other eleventy billion things for which there is no evidence, so it's pretty much worthless.

So what you're saying is that there's no good reason to believe in ghosts now.
