Default Ghosts caught on tape (the souls in purgatory????)

Here is some evidence of ghostly activity. I personally think that ghosts are either the Souls from Purgatory or demonic. What do you think?????

More likely demonic in my opinion, unless for some people part of their purification is to go back to make peace with something in their life or someone they haven't forgiven. I think it's unlikely though.

I've been fascinated by ghosts for decades and I from what I've heard, there are a few different types. There is of course the most common type which is the earthbound spirit of someone deceased who for whatever reason has decided to "haunt" a place that they were familiar with when they were alive.

Then there are the evil spirits that attack people and actually cause physical injury in the form of bites or scratches, the most famous case being the one which was made into a bestselling book and a movie called "The Entity". Those can be either mischeivous spirits of deceased people or they can be actual demons.

The rarest type is the helpful or warning ghosts who actually help people or warn them of things and the people don't realize it was a ghost until after the fact. In South Carolina there is a famous ghost of a fisherman called the Grey Man ghost who walks the beach and legend has it that whenever he is seen it means a hurricane is coming within a few days and that whoever sees him will have their house spared. I saw an interview with a couple who saw the ghost and thought he was just a gentleman walking on the beach in a fisherman's outfit. A hurricane came in a few days and this couple's house was unharmed while the homes next to them suffered severe damage. The most interesting part is that they videotaped these towels that they had hanging on the railing of their porch and the towels barely moved even though you could tell that the wind was blowing fiercely.

My belief and by the way, I saw this already, is that God doesn't play games. For unknown reason He does show a person who passed on from earth for whatever reason but I don't believe in them. However, I do believe in one and don't think I'm contradicting myself and that is the Holy Ghost.

i think it depends what the "ghost" is doing...are they acting in a threatening or scary manner..if they was then it wouldnt sound like they were from god, more likely from purgatory (many saints including padre po saw souls from purgatory who were sentenced by god to serve their purgatory on earth usually at an area where they sinned...e.g someone who may have been carless in their faith may have to spend their purgatory literally in a church until either someone prays for them and they get released or their purgatory sentence is fully served and they get released...) so many of these "ghosts" may be souls from purgatory

I think it is all nonsense, like that alledged recording of the souls in hell screaming into a microphone dropped down a REALLY deep hole.

I think it is time to ask you a question.

WHY do you want to believe in this sort of stuff?

What psychological need drives you to hanker after this sort of pseudo-spirituality?

When you see something you know is there but the camera can't capture it, then you have something to think about
