Many of those who have claimed to have found evidence have been proven to be fake or based on other phenomenon which was then mistaken for the existence of ghosts. Physical evidence would include actual photographs which prove not to be doctored or caused by other events which could cause similar results; rather in many cases ghosts prove to be the human imagination, (Frood 2003). Therefore, this lack of proven evidence can lead the logical mind to dismiss the existence of the unreal. These images of ghosts have come from years of folklore and imagination, (Tafoya 2008).
