I'm definitely a skeptic. I also don't trust people enough to really believe their stories. It just so happens that all my friends and family members who claim to have had some paranormal experience are the ones who are quite emotional and are often irrational in their thinking or already superstitious like your friend.
I have 5 friends in mind that if they came to me and said they experienced something inexplainable and thought paranormal activity was an option first I'd be shocked but I would actually give their account a little more credence.
yep, I hear ya. I think his religious upbringing definitely made him sensitive to things he can't explain and the fact that he was young at the time could have played a role as well. All that can lead to exaggeration.
However, he's less religious now and maintains a consistent story. The fact that I can trust him more than anyone else, I'm more apt to believe it. But this all happened before we became friends and I've never been inside that house before. If I don't see it or experience it personally, there's no way I can claim it as fact.
But I thought it was a cool story from someone I trust immensely since I got nothing on my end.
