.. or ... staying stil in your view on ghosts or the paranormal in general?

I've said before, when I first started this I thought I'd have blown the gaff wide open within a couple of months because of the things I experienced at the very beginning.

Today, I'm drifting more towards the "its all twaddle". Though I'm still convinced that the things I've experienced happened as they happened, I'm becoming less convinced by the supernatural explanations.

I used to say 60/40 in favour of the ghosts and ghoulies explanation, but now thats probably reversed .. so, how about you?

I'm more suspicious of paranormal claims than ever now due to all the twaddle that's been talked and misreporting that has gone on during my time investigation this field.

After saying that, I'm still convinced that there is something left to investigate, and I still believe that I have experienced some genuine paranormal activity in my time.

I just wish there wasn't as much bullshit.

I still remain unconvinced.
Yes strange things do happen, but are they really paranormal?

I'm drifting more towards believing that yes there is stuff happening, but its often exaggerated and we as humans fill in the blanks with exciting 'facts' to perpetuate the view that we carry on living in some form after death. We all read ghost stories and / or watched films a youngsters, so all that early framing of our outlook must have had some influence on our opinions or instincts now.

I've experienced things like most of us, but I'm just not so sure that in the cold light of hard fact any of it stands up as proof of intelligence in another world or afterlife.

Things certainly happen, but what it is for me, looks likely to remain a mystery, perhaps until as a world, we can accept mortality as a finality?

Think its pretty obvious where I stand....rational and logical unless it can't be explained...or unless I feel something firmly is around..how can a sensitive not be a believer?
Well I'm a sensitive but not a born again everything has to be paranormal true believer...think you all would support me when I say that in many cases I have said I have felt nothing..and on the occasions when I have...well lets leave it there.

I'm going to turn this on it's head

I've had far too much experience with the paranormal to ever deny that it exists..it is around me wherever I go and so I Know it exists..

however my time in the field and researching have led me to seriously doubt that there is such a thing as an expert on the paranormal.

I have also become so very disillusioned regarding paranormal investigation groups - especially those who claim to have some expert knowledge...or those who say that it doesn't exist, we can't disprove it and so you must be lying..

and conversely there are also the wooly headed investigative groups who believe that everything is paranormally derived - the ORB brigade (sigh)

and as for the paranormal politics that some groups play - makes you sick to be associated in any way with them.


perhaps I believe in the paranormal but am becoming very unsure about paranormal investigators
