What Is A Ghost
Ghosts are defined as the disembodied spirits of once living breathing human beings. It is said that ghosts haunt certain places particularly where there may have been great tragedy or a persons life has been cut short. Though there have been reports of ghost cars , trains and ships.
And there appears to be two distinct types of ghosts. Residual ghosts simply replay events from the past over and over. Usually in a residual haunting the ghost or spirit is not able to react to a live human or talk to them. Residual hauntings appear to simply be events from the past playing over and over in the same place and usually at the same time or under the same conditions.
And then there is the type of ghost or spirit that can interact and communicate with the people around it. This is usually the most frighting type of ghost.
The address of the Amityville House and its physical appearance have been changed to keep people from finding the house at its current location. Hint those distinctive windows are now different.
A haunted house is supposed to be a center for supernatural occurrences or paranormal phenomenon. People who have died and gone on to the other side are also said to haunt the locations of where they lived when they were alive. Spirits are often said to be present where accidental death, murder, or suicide have occurred. And the more tragedy that has occurred in any one location then the paranormal activity there may be extremely high.
And there are many locations where tragedy has occurred where ghosts are said to appear. This often happens at the scene of car wrecks, train wrecks, hit and run accidents and etc. Almost anywhere that a tragic death has occurred you can have a ghost.
In the USA approximately 37 percent of all people believe in ghosts and haunted houses. 32 percent of all the people in the USA believe that they have seen a ghost or had a real paranormal experience. How about you? Have you ever saw a ghost or had a paranormal experience. Why not tell us about it below.
The church and graves in the graveyard date back to 1738 and the church and the graveyard are said to be hotbeds of paranormal activity. The graveyard is said to have orbs all over it at night that can not be explained. A woman crying is also heard and the laughter of children is often heard when there are no children around.
Athens Ohio is said to be one of the most haunted cities in America.
Athens Lunatic Asylum was a mental hospital in Athens Ohio from 1874 to 1993 and the location is said to be one of if not the most haunted location in the United States.Many strange and unusual things have occurred in the Asylum. One woman patient was missing and she was later discovered dead in an unused ward six weeks after she had died.
Multiple personality, and rapist Billy Milligan was a prisoner and patient at the Asylum in the 1970s and 1980s. Milligan is now free and lives in California and he still claims to suffer from multiple personalities.
Over the years many ghost hunters and paranormal investigators have investigated the Asylum and they claim the Asylum is filled with spirits and demons. Some paranormal investigators have refused to ever go back into the Asylum again.

M. T. Dremer from United States on January 20, 2011:
Good information for people just starting to learn about ghosts. I didn't start to believe until I watched Ghost Hunters and they presented ghosts as more of a science than a religious connection. I have only had one noteworthy experience in my own life involving the crystal clear sound of a door opening, footsteps and then a knocking on a nearby door. Scared the crap out of me.
