Would you sleep/ live in a haunted house?

Would you sleep/ live in a haunted house?
What is it that people are afraid of “haunted” houses?

Would you dare to sleep in a house that everyone in the village claims it is haunted?

Would you sleep or even live in a house in which the whole family was murdered? But then again, people die all over the place, like in hospitals, and yet people are not afraid to sleep in hospital rooms where many people died and I bet it is even hard to find a bed in a hospital where no one died.

Would you sleep in a house that was built upon a graveyard? But then again people are buried everywhere and there are probably corpses underneath your own house/ building.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

I wouldn't be afraid of ghosts, but I would do some due diligence to make sure the murderer is in jail (or dead.)

No such thing as a haunted house.

I will say this though, I am not going to take a sucker bet where someone says, "sleep here" and nobody will try to scare you. If I get scared it will be a human trying to pull a con  on me. 

I moved onto the trailer lot I live on now in 2007. I found out a couple years later that a brother murdered her mother and father and almost his sister who escaped in the house to the right facing mine, 10 years prior to my moving onto my own lot.  I haven't seen shit or heard shit, and the family that lives there now is Hispanic and no relationship to the original family.

RE: Would you sleep/ live in a haunted house?
My youngest two kids were convinced the house we lived in when we were in SC was haunted. At different times they had the bedroom on the back left side of the house. Both were convinced they saw people at night and my son slept with a blanket or pillow over his head for a while. We were in an area that was quite possibly where Native Americans had been plentiful and the land was only recently developed so was heavily wooded. I bought a dream catcher and hung it in the window and told my son that it would help...and it did...hey, as a parent you do what you have to do to get them to sleep. They both reported the same things at different times so who knows...not that I believe in hauntings.

There was a picture I took of the front of our house that clearly showed a cat in the dormer window on that same side of the house. We didn't own a cat and didn't have one that visited, that I'm aware of. Never did solve that mystery.

Our TV in the living room turns itself back on some nights and we joke that the ghosts moved to TX with us.

Don’t be daft. Of COURSE there are haunted houses. You can even take tours of them.

I've slept in a graveyard.

Dead people are never the problem.

If it moves with you, its not a ghost, its a demon. Big Grin

AHAHAH, humans, like you and me, make excuses for misfortune with the most incredible stuff. The life that I had, the choices I made were entirely my responsability. My heroin addiction? Yes, It was my choice, so was my idea of stopping it, as were all other good/bad things that I done. Good or bad, whatever that means, it seems some people live in regret. I can't dare to regret, as it brought me to where I am now and for the moment, I am what one could call... Happy, even amidst a pneumonic outbreak.
