Paranormal events

Have you ever had a paranormal event?

I have heard a lot of different stories, but I've never seen or heard something "unusual". I have to say that I'm really skeptic and maybe that's the reason why I haven't had any paranormal experience. I personally believe that all the different paranormal situations are "the result of the mind"*.

*: I don't know if it exists this expression. I just translated "resultado o consecuencia de la mente"

I will use this piece of writing to ask you if the words: weird, strange, extraordinary, bizarre are interchangeable.

Regards!

The result of the mind. Is correct. I agree with Ruthi regarding the words that you are asking about.

 

Examples.

1.He is a strange/weird guy. Strange + weird have the same meaning.

 

2. He is an extraordinary man. This has a positive meaning.

 

3. It is quite bizarre the way that he behaves. It has the same meaning as ''strange/weird'' but you cant say ''He is a bizarre man'' Or for me it would sound strange to say it.

 

Regarding a paranormal event. I am not sure what to think regarding the subject. Maybe there is a scientific explanation for everything but you never know. Things such as this really to make my hair stand on end. Lets put it this way, I would not spend the night alone in a haunted house/castle etc. 

 

I have lived in a house where a couple of strange things happened.

Ruthi and Plsdeluno asnsweted your questions on the usage of words. 

 

Am I a skeptic?  No.  I have seen people, heard voices and loud screams.  I even have seen the black shadow that hovered over me one night when I was laying in bed awake.  The first time I ever heard distinct voices was when I was 5 years old.  They were coming from a electric fan that was unplugged.  I always thought it was imagined until later in my years I experienced more paranormal events.  Object appearing in front of my eyes was the most usual that was hard to comprehend.

 

I was told by a well respected religious figure overseas and locally that the demon of death followed me most of my life which explains alot......I believe paranormal and Evil does exist.

I am also a sceptic.I don't believe in paranormal events.I think that they are just events we have not yet found a scientific explanation for.The words you mentioned are close in meaning,there are very slight differences in usage between them.

For what reason spirits would appear only in front to a few people? ._.
