Why do people believe in ghosts?

Researchers who study the paranormal (or phenomena beyond the boundaries of science) believe that people leave behind energy when they die – especially when they die a traumatic death – and that energy shows itself as “spectral” activity.

Creepy moans, creaky stairs, flickering lights, sudden chills, shadowy figures, and even human-shaped forms dressed in old-fashioned getups. Using high-tech gadgets, pursuers of the paranormal skulk through old houses, graveyards, and other allegedly haunted spots hoping to document ghostly goings-on. They’ve yet to uncover any conclusive evidence, but that hardly seems to matter: A third of all Americans claim they believe in ghosts.
