Ghosts in an Atheist World
Okay, so recently I found out that the building that I used to work in has paranormal activity. I find myself at a cross roads. Of course, as this blog suggests, I am an atheist and do not believe in god, therefore no afterlife, and thus-ly no ghosts. But...I still think it is super fun to "believe" in them. Sure there is something going on in there that we can not explain but that doesn't mean that it is unexplainable by logical means. I watch Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State as often as I can because they are really cool shows with interesting ongoings. But I think that "ghost" are more for the people seeing them. Is it power of suggestion? Do we get chills in a particular room because there is something chilling or is it because someone told us they had gotten chills there before. Or does it happen because we want it to (in my case.) I am the queen at giving myself the heebiejeebies because I think it is fun. So I guess my question is is it okay to "believe" in something?
