As you may know, I don’t believe in religion, but I DO believe in a non-material reality, and I do believe in ghosts.

If you are a materialist, and don’t believe in such things, would YOU spend the night in a haunted house?

If I had adequate incentive ... absolutely.

And unless the place was just too noisy and/or drafty, I’d get a good night’s sleep too.

That’s a trick question, seeing as there are no such things as “haunted house”.

Only if the haunted house was in a cemetary. Lets make it really interesting!

There is no such thing as ghosts, just people’s delusionary propensity to want there to be.

OK, but I would stay in a house Airy Spirit believed was haunted so long as there was cable TV, WiFi, a minibar and a good bed.

I’ll sleep anywhere as long as I get access to Cinemax after dark.

Just to prove a point? Probably not.  I wouldn’t be worried about ghosts as so much sleeping in a strange house on a bed that’s not mine.  It’s hard for me to sleep in any bed other than my own.

If there was a money incentive, sure.  But I would want to be comfortable.  Tell me all the ghost stories you want, I just need to be able to sleep.
