09:14 pm - Things that go bump in the night..
I have always been a skeptic of the occult, of paranormal experiences. I don't know why but the normal fear induced by thing like Exorcist, Amittyville, etc. (movies) never really scared me. I mean, yes they had their shock value, there is no denying that the body does go through a fright/flight reaction when thing happen on screen.

But I never really believed it. This coming from a former Catholic, I mean my god it should have been instilled in me after all those years of schooling and indoctrination. So I set out to do some research. I visited sited like: (http://theshadowlands.net/ghost/) a site with over 7400 ghost encounters documented by people. I started reading excerpts from the Warrens book (noted demonologists who dealt with the real life exorcist and Amittyville cases).

What was my response you might ask? Total and complete fear. My spine literally tingled, hair stood up on my neck, I actually found myself saying prayers at night to myself, asking Jesus to watch over and protect our home from wayward spirits.

Had I, by simply reading of others experiences been sucked into a group hallucination and belief in the paranormal? The biggest thing I found myself questioning was this - if it is not real, how can so many otherwise normal people have so many odd occurences? Logic would dictate that they are either have some sort of brain disease/affliction, are making it up, or that it was real. If it is real it flies in the face of everything I have come to not believe, or should I say not believe.
