Why is it that many people who take a more skeptical view of the paranormal seem to think that people who believe in it or have experienced it first hand, do not understand psychological factors?

I know psychology does play a large part in a lot of experiences, but what I have a problem with is the smug 'people do think they have genuine experiences, but I know what really happened without bothering to look into it further attitude' that seems to be common in a lot of circles.

Dunno, that one gets me, As soon as I mention ghosts, I get that look, as if to say I have not considered the psychological side of things, But being a counsellor, makes sure you are considering Psychological aspects of everything.

I KNOW from personal experience, that I have SEEN, HEARD and FELT things, but I also know that, that is my opinion and there are certain psychological factors that could affect what i am getting, hence why I like to analyise what I get, try to logically explain it, before saying its a ghost/paranormal

It gets me too. I had someone enlighten me to the fact that 'Orbs' were just dust caught in the flash of digital cameras the other day!!!!! I think he was expecting to see my world crumble in front of him. :D

hehehehehehehehehehehehehhe!!!And did it???????????????

'science' is 'God' Mark, with mainstream sciences' mob mentality's interpretation of it providing us with all the 'facts' we ever need to know which are rigid and er.....fact - end off hehehehehe!
(despite this obviously being carefully engineered and put in place to do just this, despite this being the ultimate paradox of 'science', which constantly shows another picture if you look closer hehehe amongsnt many other things....)
Again though, its back to Jays 'cherry picking' and people seeking to support/prove/reinforce their belief system.
Its got fuck all to do with ghosts or anything else.As usual.

Nah. I just went on to say that it's not just dust but moisture particles too, and that the 'proper' term is 'backscatter', blah blah blah. He soon got bored.
