Why are people terrified of ghosts?

Why? I feel that we shouldn't be afraid of them as if (I mean IF ghosts are souls of the dead and not anything else) as they were once like us, like you or me. Still, I couldn't stop fearing them as if the fear is hard-wired into my brain. Share your views.

Re: Why are people terrified of ghosts?

Because they cannot be explained in a logical explanation thru Science.

Mankind has always been afraid of the unknowns. Even until today, Scientist can't explain it. They neither denied or admits that ghosts/spirits exsist.

People have good imagination. I have yet to see a ghost yet, even at haunted place.

Re: Why are people terrified of ghosts?

primarily cos little to nothing about them is known for sure..you dun usually see them
then people scared they will be harmed or killed by the ghosts in whatever ways 'as advertised' on the screen..

kinda same as say..you feel that some werido is hiding very nearby you and you think that fella got intention to harm or kill you..but you dunno where that fella is hiding although you know you're within 'reach'..will be terrified also mah..

Thread starter. Please do not start a thread with just one word. Try to put in your own thoughts as well so others can discuss on that topic.

Re: Why are people terrified of ghosts?

ghosts are not scary the only thing that causes humans to be sacary is because they dont have a solid form like humans,imagine wont u be terrified if you see a person walks tru the walls?

due to this nature of being able to do things which human cant do thats why humans are afraid of them,
if they can do wat humans do,why will humans be afraid of them?

just like,are u afraid of another human being?no right?

also ghosts do die horrible deaths dont look good and a lot of pple who have seen it dont like it hence terrified of it.
but humans who are ugly looking will only turn heads away but not make pple terrified of them...

Re: Why are people terrified of ghosts?

It is the fear of the unknown. Try walking with your eyes closed. You will be fearful to go the next step confidently. Same example for the fear of ghosts.

And don't forget, whenever you close your eyes there will be a half rotten corpse of a ghost following you around...

Could be a headless corpse too. HAHA.

I think it is also the mind.. Wondering too much. Watching too much TV too.

Re: Why are people terrified of ghosts?

because it's an Other. Something different from humans and unexplainable by scientific logic. Humans think in a logical manner and anything that surpasses their ability to explain will end up in us being afraid of them. It all boils down to normal vs. abnormal, monster vs. human.

Also, there is very little facts about ghosts. Most of what we "know" are based on what we have read, not experienced. thus, the lack of knowledge makes us feel insecure. Even the thought of ghosts makes my hair stand now..

Re: Why are people terrified of ghosts?

in my view.. ppl are generally afraid of things tat they dun encounter or dun intend to,....i mean.. simply say if a person dun know how to swim.. most likely he's afraid of the water or the wide open ocean.. even u ask tat person to just take a dip he rather die then to do tat...

furthermore we are sort of been told since young tat ghost are like this or tat.. and since we dun get to see one everyday( think noone also wan...) of course u wld like to stay away from such things....
