I don't believe it, the orb thing, many people don't know that it is a normal light anomaly under the right conditions.
I've always thought it's pretty obvious that orbs are 'flaws' rather than spirits and suchlike. A lot of ghosthunters seem so eager to accept orbs
as proof that they forget that orbs NEVER appeared in ghost photography prior to the digital camera becoming commonplace.
Show me 1000 ghost photos taken in the last 20 years, you'll find less than a handful of objects that could be classed as 'orbs' without being
obvious tricks of the light. Show me 100 ghost photographs taken over the last 12 months and you'll find a 1000 of the things.
It makes my heart sink when I see Ghost websites with huge galleries, only to discover every picture is nothing but orbs take in some forest or field
in the middle of the night.
As for Sargel 18....I dunno what to make of him. He talks a good talk, but then again, the manner in which he talks is sometimes a little too much in
the manner of "now listen, everyones gonna tell you I'm fake, but I'm not, they're lying to you, end of story". He kind of over-eggs the pudding
in that respect.
His modern day knife in a lump of rock was intersting, I was fascinated by the story....until I saw the photos. The rock didn't look too much like
rock-solid rock, it looked more like a dark brown sandstoney type material, and the knife wasn't fully fused into the 'rock', there was a small gap
along the edges.
He also claims to be a good friend of Al Bielek of Montauk Project infamy. However after reading this
I wouldn't really say that's a good thing to admit if you're using the connection to bolster your own
Some of his photos of the vortex mist 'pictures' are interesting, but the first thing that leapt to my mind upon seeing them, was old victorian
faked ghost photos of ectoplasm. Maybe IF Sargel is faking, he IS being totally honest about not Photoshopping the images because he's using
techniques which date back to photographys early days, techniques which though incredibly basic, modern computer picture analysts wouldn't even
think to look for?
I dunno. Check out his website and make your own minds up, that's all I can say!
