Let’s hear your ghost stories...

13...One night in the MTC I got up to use the bathroom...right before I got into bed, I felt a very strange feeling...the distinct perception of some kind of evil presence...

Past midnight, we all awoke to loud banging on the door. The fire department was herding everyone out of our building. The power had gone out, so the gas-powered generators had kicked in. The room housing the generators was normally well-ventilated, but...the vents were shut, so exhaust fumes were filling our dorm.

As the missionaries...sat around the cafeteria at 1am...one...asked, “Did anyone else feel an evil presence when we went to bed?”

SNIP

29...one night at the MTC, I had gone to bed as usual. After a while, I woke up when it felt like someone had grabbed my shoulders and was shaking them. On the wall by my bed, I saw a black hole type thing, about eight inches across, that slowly closed.

“Okay,” I thought, “That was a weird dream” it took me a while, but I managed to fall back to sleep.

Then, it happened again. Exactly the same way, with the shaking and the waking up and the hole…

I was terrified, and spent probably a good hour praying after that. Eventually, I felt like I was protected enough to fall back to sleep. When I told my companion and roommates about it...my companion reported that she knew I was shaking, it had rattled the bunk beds enough to wake her up too.

SNIP

40...A few years ago, I participated in a “paranormal study” in a hospital in Salt Lake City. I’m incredibly skeptical by nature which made what we saw all the more bizarre and weird.

...We DID find a ghost, and have pictures of it. http://wbcruise.blogspot.com/2010/09/earning-your-scooby-snack.html...

For other threads about Occult Mormonism...see..

* Priesthood of Joseph Smith [In this one, you can see Mormon leader quotations showing how they concede the devil was confusing them with "revelations." How they encourage visitations from the dead & spirit entities -- while ncouraging "personal revelations" from them...See how Mormons define some deceased men as "angels" -- despite the Bible communicating just the opposite. And see what Lds "apostle" Parley Pratt said about communicating with the dead -- and how Joseph Smith was a "medium" in interacting with the dead.]

How about just EYES that are dead?

In the article at the link, the writer claims to believe some thing because he sees a dented brass hand rail on a spiral stair supposedly marked by a person’s skull as the head impacted the handrail in a suicide jump. If the brass hand rail was malable enough to be dented by a head passing by then it wouldn’t be much of a safety rail.
