Have You Seen a Ghost?

Research by leading psychologist and paranormal investigator Professor Richard Wiseman reveals that 25% of British adults – more than 11 million people – claim to have experienced a ghost.

In a similar survey in the 1950s, only 7% of people said they’d ever had an encounter with a ghost.  That was up to 14% in the 1990s and 19% in 2003.

A professor Wiseman at the University of Hertfordshire in England thinks the rise to 25% might be because of more paranormal and supernatural themes in TV shows and movies . . . more ghost stories make more people believe in ghosts.
