    My wife and I call ourselves "paranormal tourists." That is, we make a pastime of travelling to famous haunts and investigating/staying/visiting. We take tons of photos (Search my name on this forum to see some of them, including at least two apparitions we captured) but we NEVER attempt contact or communication.

    We have also exorcised a number of locations with the knowledge/request of the occupants of owners.

    In the interest of perspective, I grew up in a "shi ite" Catholic home, went to Catholic school, was an altar boy, under the iron fist of a strict Italian Catholic mother who, contradictions of contradictions, was also a "medium" and very prolific "automatic writer," who held seances in our house with her group of spiritualists, and drug all manner of spiritual garbage into that house, which, was haunted as hell with some very hair-raising and terrifying experiences for my brother and my childhoods.
    I used to believe the same as most here, thinking of "ghosts" as the dead, (Basically spiritualist beliefs) could become trapped due to suicide or sudden, violent death, or not knowing they were dead, all of that business, and I became an agnostic at one point, began searching for the truth, and became a born-again Christian at age 24
    I now know that all "ghosts" are demons.
    Think of it this way: demon OPPRESSION is far more common that POSSESSION. Demons are masters of deception and impersonation, and their boss is said to be the "father of all lies," who can "even appear as an angel of light." (Part of the "protection prayer a lot of spiritualists say before a seance in many cases) They've been at the game of deceiving man for thousands of years, have perfected their craft, and any time they can shake our faith in God or his Word,(Or convince non-believers or agnostics that the Word is flawed or inaccurate) its a "win" for them.
    Therefore, a demon who oppressed an individual in life can perfectly mimic them after death, and would even know things only they or those close to them would know.

    the scriptures tell us we live and die once, then face judgement. (Ecclesiastes 12:7, Psalm 146:4, Ecclesiastes Verse 6, Hebrews 9:27) Further, there is a great void between the living and the dead, and they can neither see nor contact us, nor vice versa. (Luke 16:26)
    Further, there is a great void between the living and the dead, and they can neither see nor contact us, nor vice versa. (Luke 16:26)
    All that said, I would never ridicule anyone for their beliefs, nor disrespect their right to their prerogatives. All have free will and a right to their opinions. We can always be friends.

    "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was; and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it." Ecclesiastes 12:7

    "His breath goeth forth , he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish." Psalm 146:4.

    "Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more of a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun." Ecclesiastes Verse 6.

    "it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgement" Hebrews 9:27

    “And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, in order that those who wish to come over from here to you many not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.” Luke 16:26

    “The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him” (Ezekiel 18:20)

Trying to change my avatar; the pic I'm trying to upload from my computer is a jpeg, under 90x90 pixels, and under 50 KB, but it won't take.  What's the deal?

Hmm, not sure why you're having issues.  I just went and tried it, and it worked fine for me.

This may be silly, but are you clicking "Save Changes" at the bottom after you've chosen the file?

Did it give you a specific error?
I fully believe that not everyone is meant to see things; some things you just aren't meant to know.
