Why do ghosts exist?
The world is full of phenomena which are not comprehensible to a common person and are also not very well backed by the scientific reasoning of the current time.Some of these phenomena include the random sightings of UFOs, psychokinesis, predicting future, traveling in time, talking with the dead and many more. Most of such phenomena that are not very well explained by science are collectively known as paranormal phenomenon.One of the paranormal phenomena that has been around for thousands of year isthe belief in Ghosts. Ghosts have existed in several cultures over many periods of timeand even in this modern day and age; they still seem to have a permanent place invirtually every culture, region or a country. The concept of ghost offers a good old clash between science and religion. So far in time, although with few exceptions, ghosts have been seen, heard, felt or even smelled but have not been validated using any scientificreasoning. Even though science has not backed the existence of ghosts, it’s stillfascinating to see how the concept of ghosts manages to stick around in literally everyaspect of people’s lives such as TV shows/movies, media, religion, culture and education.1
