Ralph attempts to explain that the fear is unfounded. He tries to explain that a Beast can't exist using rationality and logic. Still, Ralph has a strong sense of self-doubt. He is not immune to fear, which he admits to the boys, and he even feels it necessary to ask Piggy whether there might actually be a ghost on the island.
