Shadow Ghosts and Creepy Pictures of Them

If you hang out on ghost photography sites, then you probably have seen shadow ghosts, or "shadow people". There seems to be quite a rash of them nowadays. Some say they are spirits of dead people, others say they are demons, and some even go so far as to call them aliens, but they are creepy-looking regardless. The following pictures are from, which is the best ghost picture site in all of cyberspace. I'd like to thank Jim Eaton of Ghoststudy for granting me permission to link to his pictures, and I'd like to thank everybody who submitted these pictures.

Cause of SIDS Could Be Supernatural

I know this sounds far-fetched in a postmodern, scientific world we live in today, but the true cause of SIDS, often known as "crib death", cannot be explained by science and medicine. Every year, many thousands of perfectly healthy babies die in their sleep every year for no apparent or explainable reason. Many thousands of autopsies done on these little victims fail to reveal a true cause of death; for example, an underlying disease. As open-minded individuals, if we can't find any explanation in the natural realm, then the answer may lie in the supernatural realm.

This article I found on a Christian site about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome states that the cause of SIDS may be demonic, given the aforementioned facts. According to Jewish texts, there is a demon named Lilith who is said to be Adam's first wife before Eve (full description of her here). She hates children and therefore kills them. When you read the article, don't stop reading in the middle because the creepiest part is at the end! Also, you might want to turn your speakers off because the site is a singing website. In other words, it has midi music playing continuously.

Crows, Ravens, and Other Death Omens

Your parents and grandparents may have told you that if a crow or raven should peck on your window, or if you should see an owl in broad daylight, then there would be a death in your house. These and other old wives' tales about death omens have been propagated down through the generations for centuries. I would conclude that the probability of a death occurring after such a sighting is no more than mere chance; however, it does happen often enough for coincidence to be ruled out. I had a crow peck on my window, but nobody close to me died. About eleven years ago, my dad's cousin, who was about to go into the hospital for major surgery, also had a crow fly into her house. She was scared out of her gourd that she was going to die. When she had her surgery, she sailed through it with flying colors, and guess what? Nobody died.

On the other hand, there are others who have been visited by crows and other "death omen" animals, and they did die. If you happen to be a fan of the reality show Deadliest Catch on the Discovery Channel, you probably are aware that Phil Harris, one of the star captains on the show, had a stroke and succumbed to an embolism during the last snow crab season. In the episode where he had the stroke and was taken away in an ambulance, they showed a close-up of a raven perched on his boat, cawing. I did not notice it when I first saw the episode, but when I went to the Deadliest Catch message board the next day, I found this discussion about the raven and its alleged connection to Capt. Phil's stroke and impending death:

Of course, ravens and crows are not the only death omens. In Irish/Celtic folklore, a ghostly wailing woman called a Banshee is said to portend death. Other people around the world have reported seeing their own ghosts, called doppelgangers, before they died. In November, 1864, President Abraham Lincoln looked into his mirror and saw two faces on his reflection, one of which was deathly pale. Five months later, he was assassinated. Countless other death omens have come true, but time and space does not allow me to post everything. However, I will leave you with some more interesting links about death omens.
