Are Ghosts Real? Here's What Science Has To Say About It
Ghosts. They're the content of almost every horror show and novel ever created, ranging from lost souls who did not know they were dead or did not know how to cross over to the next life. Or they could be vengeful spirits of those who have died a horrible death and wishes for justice.
According to a poll, more than 40% of American believe in ghosts.
Do You Believe in Ghosts?
There are tons of stories about them, with many saying they have seen or felt ghosts. But until now, the debate is still going on: are ghosts real?
In a poll by LiveScience, the result shows that 43% of Americans believe that ghosts exist.
Perhaps one of the "proofs" that ghosts exist in real life is the numerous photos of these spirits caught on camera.
In a BBC report, one example was a 12-year-old girl's photo taken from an iPhone. Based on the report, the image was captured in February 2015 at the Hampton Court Palace in London, showing a photo of the girl's cousin and a figure of a tall, grey, and cloaked lady that apparently was not present when the photo was taken.
Countless "Images" of the Dead
Before the image was taken, numerous images have been taken that were seemingly capturing the unseen, even before cameras were accessible to everyone.
For example, the infamous photo of Mary Todd Lincoln is apparently photobombed by the "ghost" of her husband, the former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, which was taken by American amateur photographer William Mumler.
Mumler became quite famous for his knack of capturing ghostly apparitions.
Now, this was taken during the early days of camera technology in the 19th century. Nevertheless, you also have to remember that this was the time when photographers were experimenting with new effects and that soon enough, they knew it could be of profit.
Apparently, Mumler was using the double exposure technique, allowing him to "take photos" of his dead relatives and of old Abe.
Among the first ones to investigate these spirits in photos was an English priest and medium named William Stainton Moses.
"By 1875, he had examined over 600 alleged spirit photographs. His view was that there were probably no more than a dozen that might pass muster as something [supernatural]," Alan Murdie said, the chairman of Ghost Club, which is believed to be the first paranormal investigation and research group in the world that was founded in 1862.
