In the pilot episode of Outlander, (1×01 Sassenach) Frank encounters a man who appears to be looking up at his wife’s window. Events get him thinking that perhaps he’s seen a ghost. (or that his wife cheated on him …what a conundrum)
Now, most of us are certain that what Frank saw was Jamie’s ghost (mainly because Diana SAYS it was, and promises an explanation in the last book, and since most of us don’t ever want this story to end, it’s an explanation we’re willing to wait for) and that has inspired this week’s question.
Do you believe in ghosts, spirits, angels, demons (I think you get my drift here) and if so why? Is it just something that you take on faith or have you had an experience that has convinced you of the existence of the other worldly?
If no, then why?
I do believe and it’s because I’ve seen the ghosts of my grandmother and my father. I wasn’t asleep or under the influence and I’m certain of who I saw. They spoke to me and still do. I’m certain that my grandmother (who got bored very easily ) isn’t finding whatever the afterlife is very entertaining because she keeps hiding my stuff.
Now, having said that, I will also say that I do not subscribe to the doctrines or tenets of any religion, but I do believe that there are things we cannot explain and that maybe, we shouldn’t try.
Okay, it’s your turn. GO!
