The article is VERY interesting(thanks for sharing it!), but if you read it all, he explains that the mysterious occurrences were caused by bats, and the way our brains are wired to self explain what we "see" and "hear".
I believe not in ghosts, but in energies left behind and feel that we probably are not evolved enough to understand such phenomenon per se.
