Types of paranormal beliefs and why people believe in it

There is always a part of us who believes in something that is outside the field of science even though it has been proven scientifically by some to be untrue. This is because nobody has ever given any conclusive evidence that paranormal beliefs such as ghost and aliens exists. While many sightings have been reported throughout the years, there is still no solid proof that these sightings were real. Why are paranormal beliefs still so popular when it lacks solid evidence? One reason is that countless photographs and videos of these so called ‘sightings’ have been recorded and with the help of the internet, spreads like wildfire. The media also plays an important role in why people believe in the…

Canterville Ghost Chapter 1 Summary

When Mr. Hiram B. Otis, the American Minister, bought Canterville Chase, every one told him he was doing a very foolish thing, as there was no doubt at all that the place was haunted. Indeed, Lord Canterville himself, who was a man of the most punctilious honour, had felt it his duty to mention the fact to Mr. Otis when they came to discuss terms. ‘We have not cared to live in the place ourselves,’ said Lord Canterville, ‘since my grand-aunt, the Dowager Duchess of Bolton, was frightened into a fit, from which she never really recovered, by two skeleton hands being placed on her shoulders as she was dressing for dinner, and I feel bound to tell you, Mr….

Scary places

Over the course of my life, I have encountered many eerie locations that have given me the chills. Despite all those fearful situations, only three places have ever successfully handicapped my lungs from providing oxygen to my heart. I could not begin to predict the events that would occur when I decided to visit a jail hostel, a cemetery, or a cellar. Until these visits, I have never been frozen from head to toe, unable to conduct a move. My previous hair raising experiences are practically nonexistent compared to my journey to The Ottawa Jail Hostel, the Garden Cemetery, or a friend’s basement cellar. To begin, the first place that is soon going to put goose bumps on my skin…
