    YES we're ghosts now, just attached to bodies. You don't cease to be a ghost just because you get released from the body.

    No, ghosts are not real. Ghosts do not exist. We do not become ghosts when we die!

    No, there's no solid proof that ghosts are real. They don't exist. No, we don't become ghosts when we die.

    Ghosts, Well, the oldest known ghost is the spirit of a Roman Soldier, which strikes us as very ancient...... But, to ANYONE with even the slightest sense of history and the past,,,, THAT IS RIDICULOUSLY YOUNG!!!!!!!!! If these things are immortal & permanent, why don't we see more, and a lot more that are MUCH older, from very far back in antiquity. Why don't we see ghosts of Phoenicians, Carthagians, Ancient Chinese, Egyptians, Sumerians?? Why don't we go back to the point of prehistory and before? Why isn't Africa CRAMMED with the ghosts of cavemen? Furthermore, why do they wear clothes? Think about that. Wouldn't the spirit go naked, even if it did not want to, simply because clothing is not live, therefore cannot have a spirit to exist in that realm. Since animals are said to have spirits, why don't we see the ghosts of dinosaurs? Ah, you should know Harry Houdini went to mediums to contact his mother, and well, the good news is, the voices/mediums spoke plainly to him, called him "Harry", said "it is I your mother",,, now the bad news,,, HARRY HOUDINI'S MOMMA DIDN'T SPEAK NO ENGLISH!!!!!!!!!! SHE NEVER CALLED HIM HARRY EITHER!!!!!! He was outraged, and spent the rest of his life mocking and trying to debunk such people.

    Ghosts are not real. Ghosts do not exist. Jinn, however, do exist. They are invisible beings who play tricks on humans and incite evil behavior. Some are good and don't do these things. You wouldn't even know that the good ones are around. Jinn are made of fire like humans are made of earth. You can say we become ghosts when we die. We are just our consciousness without a body. A soul.

    Not everyone becomes a ghost when they die. There's a difference between moving on and staying behind as a disembodied spirit.

    When the body dies the spirit is released and may travel to the astral plain, but occasionally it will remain behind. Without a body to inhabit  their interaction with the physical world is rather limited.

    Most move on to another plain of existence after this life, they follow the tunnel and reach the light on the other side. However, for some, something important or some type of "unfinished business" binds a spirit to this realm and their ghost will remain behind until that task is complete. Sometimes it's something personal they need to come to terms with within themselves, sometimes it was a wrongful death and they want justice. Most of the time it's a task that was left unfinished but very important that someone else must complete as vindication.
