I once fell asleep at the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom, does that count?

Come on, if it actually was haunted that would be the coolest thing ever.

Since ghosts (if they exist) could not have the ability to affect the material world at all, such a house would be perfectly safe, as long as humans haven't played around with it. I'd love to give it a shot, as long a Criss Angel hasn't been anywhere near it.

If they have no effect on the material world, how would one even know it's haunted?

I am a strong atheist, not believing in soul or God. I think I may survive (my hallucinations). Way back in my school days, way back home from private tuition passed by a grave-yard, and the time was after dark.

I suppose it would depend on what kind of spirits were haunting the house.

Although being atheist does make me a skeptic first and foremost, I have followed the stories from Lorraine Warren on the hauntings she's encountered.

The creepy thing is how she and her husband Ed kept from many cases objects that are meant to contain supernatural presences, including the infamous annabelle doll, and she has a priest come by and bless the place she keeps all the objects.

This is one of these things where I fall into the catagory of more agnostic, in that I don't know what truth there is to all this, but maybe there might be something.

The conjuring was a good movie at least.

I lived in a house in which a husband and wife died (separately and of natural causes), with no incident. A very nice house. I've also slept in the room in which my grandmother died.

If I was in a house in which someone was tortured and cruelly murdered, it would bother me because entering the room where it happened would make me think of that horrific suffering that took place there. I would also consider resale value.

Before me and my brother were born, our brother (seems strange saying that considering) who developed terminal cancer and died age 12 also died in my mothers home. Theres never been anything to suggest his presence is there, which makes me glad, just the idea of a presence lingering around because maybe they died in pain would be horrible.
