That got me thinking about how paranormal research seems to have taken off in the past few years. How every new show on Syfy seems to be about hauntings, cryptozoology, and other seemingly paranormal programs! To be honest, even though I loved the show, I was surprised at the following Ghost Hunters had received!
Then I delved into the thought even further. The séance in Paranormal Witness had triggered even more critical thinking on this subject.
We have always been interested in the other side, and not in the religious sense!
There are countless stories of séances in the past put on by wealthy people in an attempt to get in contact with the spirits of the dead. Sometimes the Mediums were placed in faraday cages to show that there wasn’t any funny business going on. The hunt for ghosts has been around for centuries!
There of course were frauds, like there is today. Have you seen some of the videos on YouTube? I feel that these are the people that had given the bad name to paranormal researchers that is slowly gaining more and more credibility as the publicity again increases.
I obviously don’t have any facts or figures to give you right now, as this is my initial thought process on this subject. I obviously need to gather them a bit better to post a more complete article, but as of right now, this is the best I can offer. The ramblings of a Mad Blogger.
What are your thoughts on the past and present methods on paranormal search?
Do you think that it is a good thing that there are so many shows on television publicly portraying the investigative process?
What about all of the amateur groups popping up everyday, will they help or hinder the process?
