I often read from certain members of the uber-sceptic community that they used to be paranormal investigators, but that after years of looking and observing how other investigators misinterpret 'experiences', they have come to the conclusion that there is nothing really to find and that paranormal events just don't happen.

That is all well and good, and there is some truth in it, but what I don't like is when they imply that the rest of us poor schmucks doing investigations have some how all 'missed the point' and that with any luck we will eventually 'see the light' like they did.

Just because one person researches for years and fails to find any compelling evidence for the paranormal doesn't mean that the rest of those who have are all somehow deluded.

I must admit that during my years of active research, possible paranormal events have been few and far between, but it is my experiences years before that have convinced me that there is indeed something in the paranormal and that it still is an area very worthy of study.

I agree, in that it is my own experiences that have given me 'food for thought' regarding the existence of anything paranormal.

I still maintain that these uber sceptics are not open minded, have taken their stance, and cannot be considered as objective in their views.

For me, to be open minded, is to consider all possibilities before reaching a reasonable conclusion. And even then, being open minded means considering any new evidence in the future, not simply reaching a conclusion and doing anything to justify said conclusion, like some people seem to do.

Its always intrigued me as to how far opinions get considered before something is considered as fact.
