I'm gonna take a stance similar to that seen on TAPs, which is trying to see if something could be explained by something other than paranormal
activity. I only watched the first video but it was enough for me to say that all those things could be explained by something else.
The radio interference: The radio is off-screen, so somebody could be manipulating it in time with the other events. Alternatively, the sound could
even have been added in post-production, after the fact. It's sound that we can't see eminating from a stereo or speaker system so it could be
explained a number of ways. I wasn't there, so I only have the visual evidence, which isn't conclusive.
The kitchen towel moving: Could easily be done by someone hiding behind the chair and pulling it via a string.
The dogs reacting to something at the end of the video: They are reacting to and looking at something behind the camera off-screen. Because it's
off-screen, it could be anyone, we can't see, so it can't be claimed as paranormal, someone could be standing there
The closet door opening and closing: The weirdest thing to me about this is that it happens in clear stages, not one smooth movement. First the handle
jiggles. Well someone could have been behind the door jiggling it. Then it opens a bit and stops, then opens further and stops, and then closes. This
reminds me of Ghost Hunters episode where they were on the QE2 and the bed apparently unfurled itself before they realized someone had tampered with
the camera. The camera was locked off, and someone hid behind the bed, pulled it a bit, then someone paused recording, then started it again whilst
someone hid behind the bed and pulled the bed clothes down further.
The same thing here. The camera is locked off so someone could have been behind the door, jiggling the handle. Then the recording was paused and
re-started once someone got into the new position and the door was opened either using some string pully system, or someone could've been on the top
shelf of the closet out of sight and just pushed the door open (my closet has a top shelf that sits above the door frame and a kid could easily get in
there and hide from view). The recording is paused again, and a string pully system is reset to open it further (hence the non-smooth motion we see
int he footage, because it's a two stage process), then the camera is paused again to reset a string pully system to close the door shut.
Is this what happened? I don't know. Do I think I could produce a similar result using the above techniques outlined? Yeah, I think I could. So on
that basis, and as accepted by TAPs, you have to say that it is not conclusive evidence of paranormal activity.
