Most Haunted is an absolute scam. Derek Acorah, while he may have no departed due to these allegations, was exposed as a fraudster and the entire production was brought into disrepute. Most Haunted is a circus show, not anything to do with the paranormal.
Yup, just like Edwards talking to dead people, whose show was cancelled. I wonder why the shows in churches are not canceled, they sure spout tons of excreta delirium.

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

I think you meant to pose that as a question... But yeah, paranormal stuff is cool, I've seen a good share once, but when it comes to haunted houses, I can't stomach it. Could you?
Paranormal? Haunted houses? What is all this supposed to mean outside the cliched movie versions of things going bump in the night?

If you can accept the notion of ghosts and spirits as real, it doesn't seem like a great leap towards believing in dead god-men rising and ascending to a "mysterious" realm called heaven.

It is a Ghostley image.
Aww, the late actress Alice Ghostley, a.k.a Esmeralda of Bewitched fame. I would have gotten that if I'd checked into this thread sooner. Very clever, Kate.

For me, that would have nothing to do with it. The argument of ghosts aside; I would get creeped out in a spooky place through the atmosphere. The idea of being alone in a supposedly haunted house would make me, and I assume a lot more folk here than are letting on, pretty edgy and jumpy. I don't believe in ghosts, but that doesn't stop the dark, dusty furniture and creaky floorboards from getting me going.

Don't get me wrong.

I can understand being "creeped out" by a house with unpleasant aesthetics-- excessively creaking floor boards, musty-smelling furniture, too much paisley or green and gold shag carpeting from the 1970s. Personally, a house decorated entirely in French Provincial gives me the "wllies," as opposed to a "willy."

But what have cheap atmospherics borrowed from gothic novels and horror movies got to do with a house being haunted in real life? That's all I'm trying to understand.

Oh, right. Steve McQueen.

You crazy Brits and your colorful speech. And what is this obsession you guys have with blood, anyway? It seems to have affected the more vulgar aspects of Jamaican's speech, I noticed some time ago as a kid growing up around Jamaican immigrants. They used to call folks who pissed them off various "clots" of one kind or another: "Ass clots" and "boomba clots." And, like the Brits, their speech was liberally laced with bloody this and bloody that.

What's up with that?
