I've interviewed a lot of astrophysics and experts on the paranormal, here's what I think.
I'm going to tell it as it is: ghosts are not real. Sorry to disappoint.
I want you to first think about how much paranormal documentaries, stories, and shows gross. They make a lot of money because it's one, scary and two; highly interesting. Now I want you to do this tonight. Forget all you know about the paranormal, for 10 minutes don't think about ghosts. You've unlearned and have never heard about them. Now walk through a graveyard at night. You should have no problem, I didn't. Had no experiences.. nothing. Now watch a scary ghost movie and do it again, things should get really creepy. Why? Your mind. It's a hard task to forget about ghosts, it will take practice.
Explanation: Think about the universe, the laws of physics. There is no evidence pointing to a physical being of a ghost that can be present as a entity on the Earth. Ghosts are meant to be made of absolute nothing (If it were "ectoplasm" we would've discovered it and classified it.) How can something like that be able to act open objects that are actually matter? There's no way for something not to be matter other than light, but light doesn't effect objects, it's the heat in them. Ghosts are meant to be cold, so that's outta the picture.
Think about death and living. We're made up of carbon and hydrogen atoms that have evolved over billions of years into a mass structure of them. All of those atoms would have to be doubled for us to turn into "ghosts." There's no way that's possible. Of all the people who have died on Earth to be turned into Ghosts, they're be over 100 billion ghosts. The world would be pretty messed up with all those ghosts running around, wouldn't it?
Ghosts are usually present with kids, children have vivd imagination so that's not surprising they would see things like this. For older folks, it's usually when someone had died who they were close to. This is usually known as PTSD but in a very, very small case. You start to see them because you think too much of them. Happened to me when I was devastated when my dog died, would wake up half asleep and there she was!
Final note: There's no God, religion is fake. Sorry, but it's true. If you don't think so, you're likely not educated to the point of understanding that it's BS. How can religion, that isn't even real, have an effect on ghosts? How can there be demons? Religion completely competes against the basics of Science and the whole definition of the Universe.
My explanation/theory to "paranormal activities"
Possibly could be displaced energy, extra terrestrial is also more believable. But I've had very few experiences with ghosts. Mainly when I was young and deathly afraid of them and scary movies. But now that I'm older and stopped believing it I've never once had another experience. Walked through graveyards, abandon houses, places dubbed as "haunted"... never had another experience.
