    The Universal Ghost of Dark Matter:

    http://www.spacedaily.com/news/darkmatter-03n.html


    "The cosmic microwave background shows the early effects of dark matter clumping, and these clumps grow under gravitational attraction," she said. "But each of these clumps, the halo around galaxy clusters, was thought to be smooth. People were intrigued to find that high-resolution simulations show they are not smooth, but instead have intricate substructures. The dark world has a dynamic life of its own."

    Ghosts tap into the natural equilibrium of your body and use your strongest feelings and senses against you to imagine for themselves what they want you to see, feel, or hear.... Or your just paranoid delusional for a period and someone else's past catches up with you... Either way "FAKE"

    It’s an interesting question. I offered that question to Sciforum members a few years ago. And before all of you pigheaded folks go critical, the man in the video conditioned and prefaced his comments, “putting my skepticism aside”. Science is all about asking questions. The answer is that ghosts, if they exist, cannot be made from any known form of matter. And that answer is portentous news for believers in ghosts.

    With these douchbags, science is all about ratings.

    If people all thought like you guys, mankind would never have moved forward as all new ideas would of been rubbish.

    I will not watch the vid, as i have no interest, but what ever they say or preach about this subject, science does not know on our level what they are, so how do you?

    Like i said so many times, humans will only ever answer whats in there minds.

    When the ghost of Joseph Marley visits Scrooge,
    Scrooge says this:

    "You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato.
    There's more of gravy than of grave about you, whatever you are!"

    Since it's science that moved us forward, your criticism is stupid. Science has made judgements on what ghosts are, and it's psychological in nature. It's called confirmation bias. If you believe in ghosts, then you are more likely to interpret anomalous perceptions as ghosts, especially in places where you expect ghosts to be, like old houses. No one has captured valid evidence of ghosts which need any other explanation.

    As I've said before, it's almost amazing how small minds can be fascinated by the stupidest things. <shrug>

    Is that like how a career skeptic will deny the existence of ghosts because there is no evidence, and then turn around and deny the existence of evidence because there's no such thing as ghosts?

    Really? You do realize that the book is a work of fiction, don't you? Can you tell the difference between fact and fiction - it would seem that you cannot.

    In the story ghosts were real. That's what he was quoting: Scrooge's naive skepticism about what ghosts were. In the story, he was wrong. But then you knew that didn't ya?

    I would deny the evidence for other reasons.

    Ho-hum <yawn>

    Just a group of paid TV actors pandering to the beliefs of silly people for the money.

    It's amazing people really believe this stuff. Their methods are far from scientific. People should ask themselves why these shows don't use scientists to host their shows? If they were serious about the subject matter they would use scientists rather than actors.
