You will get "flamed" for what you've said because it's by far the stupidest thing I've ever had the displeasure of reading. First and foremost I will have to admit one thing, ghosts are real in a sense. It is possible for a person or creature (a cat or a dog) that has lived with you or around you for an extensive period of time to trick your mind for a few seconds and make you think that they're there but in fact they're not.
I myself have experienced this as when I was younger my mother owned a cat, a cat that had lived in my house since before I was born and when she finally passed at the age of twenty three I was so used to seeing her running around the house my brain would often get confused and make me believe that I'd see a small catlike creature run across the living room or kitchen when in actuality it was just my mind not yet ready to accept her death.
To this day I have issues like that when I'm in that house, I suppose it's the same as when you get lost for a short while when you're younger, you look all around for your parents and your almost certain that half the people you see are them but upon closer inspection it turns out that they aren't. It's the mind's subconsciousness not adapting as quickly as the rest of the person, momentarily fooling them into seeing something that isn't there.
The same rule can be applied to places feeling strange or what have you, I was told by my uncle (an Atheist) that when he visited Jerusalem it felt like there was a presence of God there. I can quite easily see why he would feel it, a good analogy to use in this situation would be to picture yourself doing something so incredibly stupid, you'd anger literally everyone around you. In a situation like that you can sort of feel the hate emanating from the people who dislike you, almost like a sixth sense and it works the same way in a religious location. If nearly every waking thought that people are having revolves around God or religion it's not too outlandish of a theory to claim that those thoughts are impacting and for lack of a better word infecting the world around them.
Anyway I digress, the fact that you've no proof to back up your supposed conversation with a dead being makes me think that you've made this up purely to garner attention. If you have indeed spoken to something or someone beyond the realm of death please tell me, what exactly was it that you talked with them about. From what I've seen of you around here (and yes I do realise that it's rather foolish to judge someone simply from their activity here but since it's all I know of you my assumption will be based solely off of that) you're not exactly the most interesting person, so it boggles the mind to think that of all the people this "exception that proves the rule" decided to speak with you.
In short you're not an idiot if you don't believe in ghosts and especially souls (considering that there's not a single ounce of proof that they exist, so to believe in them so strongly that you would ridicule someone is in fact a much more idiotic thing to do) and if you really want people to take you seriously, bring some proof to back up this supposed conversation with an ethereal being.
