If I go into a witness box in a court room, and describe what I saw with my own eyes, or heard with my own ears, is that anecdote or evidence? How it that different from what people are posting here?Well as I said earlier on......the plural of anecdote is anecdotes, not evidence.
So in that case all "sightings" of the monster in Loch Ness are evidence? Or is it somebody seeing something they don't understand or misinterpret and attaching and explanation to it?If I go into a witness box in a court room, and describe what I saw with my own eyes, or heard with my own ears, is that anecdote or evidence?

All I can do is to repeat what a current occupant of my main 1950s childhood home asked me out of the blue: "Did we see the ghost when we lived there?"Truth is I cannot believe that people say they have seen in buildings. My poor old dad when he was alive used to tell me about seeing a "Will O The Wisp" in Ireland when he was walking back home. It would make the hair on your head stand seeing it . It does exist but is nothing more than Bog Gas floating around. He dropped dead in kitchen in my first house but I have never heard of any one saying there is a ghost or presence there. I spent many an hour walking around the derelict wards at Fair Mile where a lot of people committed suicide but I have never felt any presence there what so ever. Two doors down from our house one gut who lived there hung himself in the stairwell, I've known the people who lived there over the years and been it the place myself but no one had told me if there is a ghost or presence there.
It's all a load of tosh IMO people get jumpy when walking in an empty building on their own and if they hear or see something they let their imagination take over. In trough they really need to have a talk to themselves and grow up, they are not kids any more.
As I have said previously, no. Nor did I hear of anyone who did. But the wife of a couple living in the flat above the stables did commit suicide by putting her head in the gas oven in the flat's kitchen during the time when we lived in the main house, and rented out the flat. Where I used to walk with my maternal grandfather there was one tree's trunk touching that of another. When a wind was blowing, the trunks moved against each other, making sounds that led to us calling it, "the oogly oogly tree". We both knew there was 'nothing there', just a bit of fantasy. But that young woman did kill herself, and over half a century later I was asked about the ghost.SO did you see it??
In my experience paid Ghost hunts are a waste of time and often actors are used to make you fear what you can't see, but if anything like tv programs to go by then they are just for entertainment, its the same said by Christians who say they don't believe in ghosts but they go to church every Sunday to pray to the holy ghost, I guess you will just remain an un-believer in the paranormal or strange and unknown until you have an experience of your own you can't explain.Been thinking about all this mumbo jumbo.....sorry ghost stuff.
I have a question for all the believers in this.
I have been in a certain derp in Liverpool, in the dark (cus that's when ghosts appear) for several hours in a small group but nothing "spooky" happened.
In fact I know one chap who's been in the place dozens of times and never seen a ghost.....bear in mind this is "one of the most haunted places in the uk"
When people go on ghost hunts here (ya know....on a PAID ghost hunt)
They see and hear somethings "spooky"
My question is this
Is this pure chance or is the fact people pay money and the organiser's want to keep a reputation going directly related to the " SPOOKY" goings on?
Also why no ectoplasm? We've all seen ghostbusters .....why no ectoplasm?
Damn that was two questions
