I would love for ghosts to be real. This would be so cool.
A proof that there is a life after death.
I would love to talk to them how it is to die and what happens after.

But I don't believe in them.

Here some thoughts:

Where is the most suffering and where do most people die?
Hospitals.
Not only sick people die there, also murder victims doctors tie to save, same the suicide. Not only one family who was murdered. Thousands. And they try to bring them back to live sometimes too.
Young people, old people.
Most deaths per square feet I would think.
But hospitals, unless they are old and empty are not scary. They are bright and busy.
How come?

Why when there are ghosts should they try to murder people?
There are enough death people already, they should be enough to be some kind of company for the ghosts.

Chemda is fully correct in the "white is the default" explanation.

Lets look at the Hunger games example:

Quote:
In the novel The Hunger Games, Katniss describes Rue as “a twelve-year-old girl from District 11. She has dark brown skin and eyes, but other than that, she’s very like Prim in size and demeanor.”
So this is not an example of changing a character from a book to a different race for a movie - its readers so hardcore defaulting to white that they ignore the actual description and take to twitter to write comments like
Quote:
“Awkward moment when Rue is some black girl and not the little blonde innocent girl you picture”

I'm agnostic af.

Logic and facts are cool or whatever. But they are party pooppers for entertainment.

I'm always open to the idea of supernatural things that can't be explained.

I feel like when I lose the ability to be whimsical is when I become a boring adult who has lost all their childhood wonder.

i'm a whimsical adult, but i know ghosts aren't real. all the things that are "me" are grey matter and electricity. grey matter rots and electricity changes form, but pretty sure it doesn't retain our personality or have the ability to think, contrive, or affect matter.

For me its "I want to believe" but I really can't make my logical brain agree to that.

But how cool would it be if there were ghosts and magic and Bermuda triangles and Alien abductions

i console my imagination by remembering the universe may not work the same way in all of the places in it. there's a place where the laws of physics are different or skewed b/c of, what, the density of some particles or a special dust or gas, and the biology of the people and how their physiology reacts with their environment makes ghosting possible, but again, nothing supernatural. just science.

When I was a kid I thought we were haunted by a baby ghost. For two nights I'd hear a baby crying in my room. Finally figured out that the noise was coming from under the trailer house. I crawled under the house and found a raccoon tangled in wires. A cornered coon is way scarier than any ghost. Also ghosts aren't real.

Did you know that a caterpillar completely liquefies before turning into a butterfly! This is a recent discovery. They used to think it just change what it had, but no it starts all the fuck over. That's pretty freaky.
Each butterfly lays eggs on a specific plant and the caterpillar will only eat that plant, how does it remember what plant that is? Butterflies themselves will eat from any plant not just the one it starts with but somehow knows which plant to lay it's eggs.
I guess in a very long winded way I'm saying there is more to it than grey matter. I'm not saying ghosts are real I'm just saying grey matter is just the result of something else that is even more powerful and meaningful. Something else that makes you you to start with, and can hold some really powerful information. Nature / Nurture theories just got bitch slapped hard!
