To start off I consider myself a well-educated person and a firm believer in the Bible. I am Finishing up my bachelors degree in business and then going for my Masters from UTK. I also like to think I have an open mind when it comes to things such as mysterious creatures (Bigfoot, Loch Ness, etc) as well as visions of ghosts/demons. Thing is a story I heard from some fishing partners has set me back a little bit. I am just not sure what to believe. I will give the account of their story to the best of my ability and then add my opinions on the possibilities, however if all cases they have mentioned are true I would be very freaked out. To set the background they are all High School dropouts, only one got a GED (this hurts some credibility even if they are my friends). 2 of them I always fish with and they are very open to the possibility of hauntings, ghosts and the like, and there girlfriend who also believes. One of those 2 has a learning disability and sometimes when fishing they are very on edge for reasons I do not know. They moved out from there moms for the first time and into a house that was once occupied by there aunt and uncle. After moving in they had there friend and his wife move in as well. Apparently strange things have been happening, most after what they referred to as dead hour (after 3am they say). Apparently they have all seen visions of a girl, or the figure of a girl and shadows in the house. The one who is mentally impaired saw black clouds floating over the ceiling and in an all black room they claim there are 2 visions of a girl, one with a man beside her. All of this started after they removed an inverted black cross from the door of the black bedroom. They have tried to take photos but he says his camera mysteriously loses charge and then gains it back in another room. He managed 2 pictures of the black wall said to contain the pictures. They can only be made out on the digital if you tilt the screen then invert it. The scariest part is the next little bit. I am not sure in which order the events took place, they just told me all of them so I will just share as well. They left the black room towards the kitchen when the knife drawer flew open, they went back to the room opened the door and found 2 knives stuck in the bed. Another occurrence involved the friend who moved in with his wife. He woke up one night unable to move and felt himself thrown back to the bed from a levitated state and could barely breath. He decided to film it happening but as he set up the film a slap was heard and he emerged with a handprint across his face and was scared more than he had ever been. He was the only one in the room. Later they decided to "speak" to what was in the room. They used a candle and asked that yes be two flickers or blows of the candle and no be one. They asked if the "spirit" spirit would talk and got the yes response. Asked if it was a girl and another yes. Asked if it meant harm and it said no. Then they asked what happened. The candle flickered twice for yes then they claim a deep evil voice yelled no from behind them. The wife of the person levitated became possessed shortly after (she was the one doing the questions). They claimed things have been thrown and other odd things happening. They burnt sage in the house and it angered whatever was there they said. The oldest person there, the eldest brother and one of the only 2 remaining said that the demon was "Kane" he believed. The woman was exorcised and will not allow her husband to fish with the others anymore due to the "spirit" going through them to get to her. She literally parked 100yards away and had him collect his fishing stuff, she was really scared. Now the oldest/owner is considering bringing a "witches" bible a cousin owns to the place to do who knows what. He "claims" it is bound with part of human skin, never saw it and don't want to. Also want a Black?? Ouija board to take to the house. Here is my opinion. As far as the walls and the face goes, when a person is born the first see faces, mom, dad, and doctor. We are predisposed to see faces in things (trees, Mary in toast, walls, ink blots). Her possession, well the mind is powerful. If she thought it was possible maybe she made it happen. The knives, no answer, and the levitation maybe he woke up from a bad dream. The slap, no answer. I never saw any of it but they want me to come over after dead hour to experience it. They will call it out, or else it does not show they say. I am concerned with the whole Ouija board and witches bible, if something was there how can it be good. What can repel such a thing, what could it be. Should I believe, should I go over and get mixed up in what they may do. I think it would be ill advised. I have goose bumps as I type this.
