    I do....

    Place I used to live at I had a couple of weird experiences. My Mother was visiting right after the birth of my daughter and used to come in and wake me up asking if I heard the baby crying....except well the baby wasn't crying...It was something I'd heard from time to time also around the house.

    Also the home my Grandparents owned was rather strange. My Great Grandmother lived there with my Grandparents for a long time, they had a section of the house set up just for her. It had a bedroom and it's own sitting room. After she died though that portion of the house went cold...summer or winter it was just always cold. Living in North Carolina summer days would quite often get anywhere from 95 to 105 degree's but those two rooms always stayed cold enough for you to see your breath condensate. The house was built in the 1930's or 40's and had never had air conditioning installed....

    shunnn, shunnn the unbeliever

    In Physics the law of energy conservation states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another or transferred from one body to another, but the total amount of energy remains constant.

    What happens to the energy in our bodies when we expire? It has to switch to another form...I say that's from a driving force for our bodies to and astral form of energy that represents the spirit or ghost. This stance would also give credibility to the theories on Reincarnation being a transfer of energy from one body to another...

    I don't buy into a lot of what's on the shows myself it's too easy to stage things or rig things with hollywood hocus pocus. I'm not saying there are all fake, but I will say TV is about ratings.

    You are right, it does switch to another form. Dust, ash, fertilizer, trees, fruit, animal feed, animal meat, another human being. Why abandon the obvious and reasonable answer for the "more mysterious" answer?

    Because those aren't the answers, Dust, Ash, Fertilizer, Trees, Fruit, Animal Feed, Animal Meat, Another Human Being only accounts for the material portions of our body? What about the immaterial you know the portion that can't be identfied that gives us logic reasoning and ego?

    If something is immaterial that would indicate to me that it is not energy (since energy/matter is/are "material") therefore your law of energy conservation is not applicable. Additionally it is the brain gives us the potential for logic, reasoning and ego. The brain IS converted to base elements so once again, don't really see any issues.

    Peace,
