I don’t particularly believe in ghosts, although I do fear them. My father says this too. ;-) In fact, the man fears everything that he doesn’t know completely or control. For instance, thousands of years ago the caveman feared thunders, because he didn’t know what it was. He thought: “The God of Thunder was angry, we need calm him down, kill the sheep and offer it to the God.”The man attributes to God what he doesn’t know. Have you heard about the Poltergeist Phenomenon?

A poltergeist (German for rumbling ghost) is widely believed to be an invisible ghost that interacts with others by moving and influencing inanimate objects. Stories featuring poltergeists typically focus heavily on raps, thumps, knocks, footsteps, and bed-shaking, all without a discernable point of origin.

When I was a child, my neighbor had this problem, stones flew from nowhere to a oldman’s head. My father told me that everything happens like in movie “The Exorcist”. I remember that night, I didn’t see anything, but my dad lit a candle, something that he had never done before. Nobody explained it to me, and it remains a mystery.

I already said it, I don’t believe it, but I fear…

Best wishes.
