there are few buildings apparently haunted

in one of them (key point) a colleague mentioned she felt it strongly ... I mean the presence ...

and likewise when a female friend's unwashed undies and bras were going missing when she went to police first thing she was told is 'it is the seventh month, maybe you are just imagining a ghost as they come out on the 7th month' ....

as some of you guys know, i served NS in singapore. i was posted to the island of pulau tekong for basic military training, and i returned there on a few other occasions during my officer cadet phase.

i've had unexplained events happen on the island that, because it defies logical and natural laws, i can only accept as supernatural...

I have a science degree and right off the bat I'm not a believer in the supernatural by any stretch. Yet I've seen a couple of things in my life, two of which in Singapore, that truly defied logic, common sense and every single measure of rationality I can think of. And I was sober as a judge at the time.

So my answer: Maybe.

Science is perfectly ok with the ghosts. Moreover, IMHO it would be damn arrogant for a scientist to arbitrary say something exists or not. A proof is needed, that's all.

Science never says something doesn't exist, rather it says, the evidence suggests a/b/c exists.

It is zealots and self-interested nutters who claim that science 'claims' anything. Claiming anything (without substantiation), itself, is anti-science.

Yep, and the point is having a scientific degree you still may believe in ghosts. You may say you feel it in your bones and this is also perfectly ok because, unless proven differently, this feeling could be perfectly real and correct.
