I will tell you what makes it hard
for paranormal investigators to seek
out the truth, is the fact that there
are many hoaxers in the world. With
this, there is a battle between the
believers and the skeptics. This becomes
Skeptics scoff at paranormal investigators
and claim we are performing pseudoscience
investigations. Everytime I hold up
a temperature gauge looking for cold
spots, I feel like Carl Sagan, one
of the leading skeptics is frowning
and shaking his head at me. Carl Sagan
has every right to frown. The hoaxers
of the world have ruined true scientific
investigation of UFOs, ghosts and
even the Loch Ness Monster. Cryptozoology
almost went out the door, when they
found out the most famous Loch Ness
Monster photo was a fraud. There are
tons of fake UFO photos, such as the
infamous John T. Scopes UFO photo.
Yeah, throw a Wok in the air, snap
some photos and claim the ship came
from Venus. We've all seen it all
and hoaxers keep on hoaxing us.
Who were those two crazy old men
in England stepping on sticks, walking
around in circles creating their own
crop circles? I just wonder how they
create over a thousand elaborate mathematically
in-tuned crop circles around the world?
They're almost like Santa Claus, they
can be anywhere at once, creating
crop circles. But, of course the media
ignores that. Just because these two
old guys took the glory of creating
crop circles, we now believe that
all crop circles were made by them.
I know, another great skeptic Barry
L. Beyerstein is probably shoulder-to-shoulder
with Carl Sagan in heaven, looking
down at me and saying..."we told
you that crop circles were fake!"
I look back up at Carl and Barry and
say..."I bet you are saying that
heaven is fake too!" But, it's
good we have our skeptics, because
some believers believe too hard. That
is why I salute The Committee for
Skeptical Inquiry, that takes a critical
look at the paranormal and any fringe
science and disseminates the factual
information for release to the public.
How many people remember how attorney
William Weber confessed to the Amityville
Horror hoax? With Weber, the motivation
was money. How many people went and
saw the Blair Witch Project movie,
believing that the story was true?
Yeah, they got you good. You spent
your hard earned dollars to watch
a crummy home made video movie and
you bought into it. You were gullible
and you were taken. My dad always
said, there was a fool born every
day and there are a lot of fools out
Sure, many skeptics scoff at ghost
hunters, but they must realize that
there are many ghost hunting groups
made up of skeptics. When all reasonable
explanations are dispelled, you are
left with one thing, the abnormal,
the paranormal. I have been through
many investigations and sure I heard
the EVPs, I saw the videos/pictures
of orbs, white mist and so on. But,
I wanted more. I wanted to hear something
with my own ears, I wanted to be touched,
I wanted to see something with my
own eyes. After so many investigations,
it happened, I was touched, I have
seen a full body apparition. Am I
a believer? Yes, I am and I still
seek out the truth. If humans on the
Quantum level are made of atoms, then
we are true energy beings. So why
can't ghosts exist, aren't they pure
energy entities too? If we can maintain
knowledge in our matter bodies, why
can't we retain that knowledge in
a more spiritual form? An aura surrounds
our body at all times. Could that
aura be our soul? When we die, could
that aura be seen by others? Would
they think that aura is a ghost? Seems
pretty logical enough to me.
Paranormal Politics is more than
Skeptics vs. Believers. It's also
Religion vs. Believers. Most Christians
don't believe in 'ghosts', but yet
they believe we will be resurrected
and face Judgment Day. They believe
in the holy ghost, they believe in
God. Isn't God an entity of pure energy?
When Jesus was resurrected, his eyes
glowed red and you couldn't look upon
him, because his light was so bright.
Sounds like energy to me. Don't worry
everyone...yes, I believe in God,
so don't start sending me hate mail.
I am just trying to make a point here.
Then finally we have Believers vs.
Believers. Who is the better ghost
hunting group? Before I joined H.P.I.
(Haunted and Paranormal Investigations)
of Northern California, I belonged
to another group, that is now defunct.
Thank goodness. The leaders were a
husband and wife team, they fought
like cats and dogs. If you missed
a meeting, they would talk about you
in a derogatory sarcastic way. They
were jealous of H.P.I. At the meetings,
they would talk negatively about H.P.I.
and claim they were the #1 group.
Hmmm...well, where are they now? H.P.I.
is still investigating and has a slew
of members. Instead of working together,
they would rather alienate another
group. For shame, no wonder they are
My observations of H.P.I. is that
our group assists newer groups to
get on their feet and give other groups
helpful tips on how they can obtain
their own investigations. H.P.I. throws
the Paranormal Politics out the window,
because they actually seek the truth.
The philosophy is, that if there are
many people seeking the truth, maybe
the truth will be found.
