Considering the Holy Spirit is supposed to be there, I'd say all of them

None, as ghosts only exist in the imagination of the weak minded.

No really. And not for the juvenile 'creepy ghosts' aspect. I just love the old architecture and design of many of the buildings.

Bartonville, IL. State Mental Hospital was turned into an industrial park.
Some of the old buildings are still available, I believe.

I'd have just left it as "in the imagination" without the weak minded part, but yeah, pretty much this.

Zero are haunted because there are no such things as ghosts.

Come on, man. People who don't even allow for the possibility of there being ghosts are the same kind of people who don't like hair bands. You know.... people with no sense of humor.

I allow for the possibility, but until I see any evidence they're in the same realm as fairies, elves and god.

It depresses me that none of these likely exist. The world would be more interesting if at least some of them did...

I think it might be rental only, but you're in luck! Of course from all reports the place is already falling apart, but hey it's basically Arkham Asylum!

I recently blew through both seasons of Ghost Lab. That was a farking great show, way better than Ghost Hunters. Kinda sucks they cancelled it after 2 seasons.

Growing up a couple of my friends lived by that St. Johns church in Oak Park. I never knew it was haunted, if we knew that we would have been trying to get into that place every chance we could, but the neighborhood around the church was a little weird. There were more than a few women that didn't mind flashing us their boobies.

If you were really intellectually and scientifically minded, you would understand that as it cannot be directly disproven, there will always be the possibility of its existence. Science rarely talks in absolutes.

Nice copout, but garbage otherwise. There's a huge difference between "I don't know what dark matter is made out of" on the one hand and "Yeah, I'm pretty sure that when grandpa said there is a magic invisible dragon in our livingroom he was full of shiat."

Ghosts fall in to the latter. Nice fairytale and all, but ultimately some grandpa's BS from a few thousand years ago when our greatest scientific achievement was a pointy stick.

Not a cop out. That's why while many scientists are 99.9% sure there's not a god..they'll never say 100% for sure. Even to the magic invisible dragon. Or alien abductions. Or anything of that matter. There's always a slim possibility of it being real because we can never disprove it. Your belief that it's absolutely 100% not true is based no more on reality than someone's belief than it is 100% true. That is because there is no definitive test for it.

/Scientist and 99.9% atheist, because I'm thoughtful enough to realize that I don't know. I can't ever know for sure.

Think about Q from Star Trek TNG. There might be entities out there with powers that make them indistinguishable from God, but we know the worshiping doesn't get you anywhere. And observation plus evidence gets better results than faith in anything.

/Q really exemplified "Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic"
//and "What does God need with a starship?"

Well, that goes beyond the point of saying whether or not a phenomenon exists..that gets into 'what you do with the knowledge that it exists.'
