Ghosts?

A post by eponine119 reminded me I've been wanting to do this poll. I'm a bit in the same conundrum as Dean Winchester: I believe in ghosts, but not necessarily the whole "heaven and hell" thing. How, then, can I reconcile that? How do you? What do you believe? Feel free to leave a comment if I've left out some obvious angle!

Do you believe in ghosts?

Yes
23(76.7%)
No
7(23.3%)

Ever seen or "felt" a ghost?

Yes
7(23.3%)
No
6(20.0%)
Maybe, I'm not sure
9(30.0%)
No, but a good friend/relative/neighbor has...
4(13.3%)

What all do you believe in?

God
0(0.0%)
angels
0(0.0%)
demons
0(0.0%)
heaven
0(0.0%)
hell
0(0.0%)
psychics who can talk to the dead
0(0.0%)
other mental powers
1(3.7%)
possession
0(0.0%)
ghosts
2(7.4%)
aliens
1(3.7%)

What's more plausible?

Ghosts
14(48.3%)
Aliens
15(51.7%)

What *are* ghosts?

Trapped spirits of the dead who can't move on
5(17.2%)
A bizarre accumulation of energy from the living or dead
5(17.2%)
Hallucinations or dreams
1(3.4%)
Hoaxes of some kind
0(0.0%)
I don't know but there's bound to be a logical, scientific explanation
1(3.4%)
Some other entity, but not human
2(6.9%)

How do you explain ghosts if you don't believe in Heaven or Hell?

There is an afterlife, just not the one described in the Bible
16(69.6%)
Ghosts exist but once exorcised, cease to exist
0(0.0%)
I can't: Ghosts eventually either go to heaven or hell
3(13.0%)
I can't explain ghosts, they don't exist!
1(4.3%)

Okay, what do you wish *did* exist?

Vampires
6(27.3%)
Werewolves
1(4.5%)
Zombies
0(0.0%)
Frankenstein
0(0.0%)
Resurrected mummies
0(0.0%)
Chupacabres
2(9.1%)

Best ghost movie you've ever seen?
