    Where can you find the passage in the bible that talks about spirtism and when some guy( know) went to visit a spirt medium. I'm so drawing a blank and I'm at work. And someone's father claims there is no mention of ghost in the bible.

    You may be thinking of the which of Endor.

    1 Samuel 28:7-19 (New International Version)

    7 Saul then said to his attendants, "Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her."
    "There is one in Endor," they said.

    8 So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. "Consult a spirit for me," he said, "and bring up for me the one I name."

    9 But the woman said to him, "Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?"

    10 Saul swore to her by the LORD, "As surely as the LORD lives, you will not be punished for this."

    11 Then the woman asked, "Whom shall I bring up for you?"
    "Bring up Samuel," he said.

    12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, "Why have you deceived me? You are Saul!"

    13 The king said to her, "Don't be afraid. What do you see?"
    The woman said, "I see a spirit [ a ] coming up out of the ground."

    14 "What does he look like?" he asked.
    "An old man wearing a robe is coming up," she said.
    Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.

    15 Samuel said to Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?"
    "I am in great distress," Saul said. "The Philistines are fighting against me, and God has turned away from me. He no longer answers me, either by prophets or by dreams. So I have called on you to tell me what to do."

    16 Samuel said, "Why do you consult me, now that the LORD has turned away from you and become your enemy? 17 The LORD has done what he predicted through me. The LORD has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors?to David. 18 Because you did not obey the LORD or carry out his fierce wrath against the Amalekites, the LORD has done this to you today. 19 The LORD will hand over both Israel and you to the Philistines, and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The LORD will also hand over the army of Israel to the Philistines."

    There's also: Matt 17 with the ghosts of Moses and Elijah

    Matthew 17

    1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.

    4 Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters?one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."

    5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!"

    6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid." 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

    Are you thinking of 1 Samuel 28:4?

    How about this:

    1 Samuel 28 (New International Version)

    Saul and the Witch of Endor

    1 In those days the Philistines gathered their forces to fight against Israel. Achish said to David, "You must understand that you and your men will accompany me in the army."

    2 David said, "Then you will see for yourself what your servant can do."
    Achish replied, "Very well, I will make you my bodyguard for life."

    3 Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had mourned for him and buried him in his own town of Ramah. Saul had expelled the mediums and spiritists from the land.

    4 The Philistines assembled and came and set up camp at Shunem, while Saul gathered all the Israelites and set up camp at Gilboa. 5 When Saul saw the Philistine army, he was afraid; terror filled his heart. 6 He inquired of the LORD, but the LORD did not answer him by dreams or Urim or prophets. 7 Saul then said to his attendants, "Find me a woman who is a medium, so I may go and inquire of her." "There is one in Endor," they said.

    8 So Saul disguised himself, putting on other clothes, and at night he and two men went to the woman. "Consult a spirit for me," he said, "and bring up for me the one I name."

    9 But the woman said to him, "Surely you know what Saul has done. He has cut off the mediums and spiritists from the land. Why have you set a trap for my life to bring about my death?"

    10 Saul swore to her by the LORD, "As surely as the LORD lives, you will not be punished for this."

    11 Then the woman asked, "Whom shall I bring up for you?"
    "Bring up Samuel," he said.

    12 When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out at the top of her voice and said to Saul, "Why have you deceived me? You are Saul!"

    13 The king said to her, "Don't be afraid. What do you see?"
    The woman said, "I see a spirit [ a ] coming up out of the ground."

    14 "What does he look like?" he asked.
    "An old man wearing a robe is coming up," she said.
    Then Saul knew it was Samuel, and he bowed down and prostrated himself with his face to the ground.

    15 Samuel said to Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?"
    "I am in great distress," Saul said. "The Philistines are fighting against me, and God has turned away from me. He no longer answers me, either by prophets or by dreams. So I have called on you to tell me what to do."

    16 Samuel said, "Why do you consult me, now that the LORD has turned away from you and become your enemy? 17 The LORD has done what he predicted through me. The LORD has torn the kingdom out of your hands and given it to one of your neighbors?to David. 18 Because you did not obey the LORD or carry out his fierce wrath against the Amalekites, the LORD has done this to you today. 19 The LORD will hand over both Israel and you to the Philistines, and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The LORD will also hand over the army of Israel to the Philistines."
