Ghost of my big fat greek wedding[edit]

Caldecott's book is fiction. The link suggests it has authority; is this then a good or weak citation? Manytexts (talk) 12:57, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Good point. Why is a work of fiction being cited as evidence of claims to an actual experience?

Details not provided for tenuous statement[edit]

"Similar concepts have been observed in Indonesia and in the Solomon Islands, possibly transferred by travellers in the ancient world.[3]" This has a reference but doesn't cite the details as to why this similarity in concepts might be transmitted knowledge. Without any evidence being cited it's just conjecture of a very loose nature. Any details as to the evidence or reasoning given in the referenced publication should be added to the article or this line should be stripped out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.31.40.244 (talk) 03:10, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

I agree with the idea that this article should be merged with the article 'Egyptian soul'. That article covers everything that this one does more completely and more clearly. Egyptian cultural concepts of ghosts only have meaning within an understanding of the ancient Egyptians concepts of the soul, so this article need not exist separately. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.31.40.244 (talk) 03:30, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
