Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
My provocative question today is a follow up to my Friday Flashback post from this past week. I featured a nine-year-old post from an old, now defunct blog of mine, that referenced a survey claiming that 37% of Americans believed in the existence of ghosts. Curious about that stat, I wanted to find out, nine years later, if more than one-third of Americans still believe in ghosts.
I was surprised to come across this chart, which suggests that today, 45% of Americans believe in ghosts.So that is what precipitated this week’s provocative question. I am asking you, my readers, who are not just Americans, but who come from all around the world, to answer this question:
Do you believe in ghosts? If so, how would you define or describe these beings and what makes you believe they exist? Have you had any personal experiences with ghosts?
If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.
The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.
