OK. As a paranormal investigator of many years I'll do your debunking for you.
Ghosts/spirits/demons/angels/etc... Unknown composition. No controlled study that established a baseline reading on any instrument for anything
K2/Ghost box/White Noise/Anything of the sort-----Millions of radio, tv, cell, cb, shortwave signals bouncing around the atmosphere. Picking up those
signals, those signals leave imprints on magnetic tape. White noise gen, audio matrixing.
ACCEPTABLE AUDIO EVIDENCE- Controlled environment, actual disembodied voices verified by the controlled environment and supplemented by audio
recordings(multiple). Without all sorts of audio manipulation. Kind of like DrJay is in an enclosed an inspected room by himself. He hears, "Hey
Jay". It's recorded on multiple devices and heard by the monitoring station.
FLIR/THERMAL/TEMP GUAGES---Since you can't quantify the composition of a ghost, how can you determine what type of readings it will give off? You
can't. Complete waste unless you have a repeating pattern with apparittions or a particular form of activity.
EMF/Trifield- Well, everything gives off an electromagnetic field. A ghost in theory should, but what reading? Again, unless you get a similar
reading under repeating circumstances it's useless.
Geiger Counter-One of my theories. I think that abrupt changes in a radiation in a thoroughly inspected, controlled area could be a good indicator of
activity. We have some corrollations with spikes and apparittions and poltergeist type activity. But again i takes time to develop enough contolled
tests to develop a plausible theory.
What are ghosts? If they are energy(pure) they wouldn't glide across the floor. They would just fall. If they were matter they couldn't pass
through solid objects. If we're seeing something behind a veil, a rift between dimensions then they shouldn't be able to effect the matter around
them. So different entities have different compositions and some, especially the demonic can phase betweeen matter and energy.
Unless done in a properly controlled environement all evidence is trash. For scientiffic purposes. It you see a full body apparition on 100
occasions and it sonstantly gives a similar spike on the emf and geiger then you have something.
We do a thorough inspection of every property we investigate. We look like the secret service going through a home. Why? We want to make sure that
the house isn't rigged. About 75% of the homes we visit we catch them trying to perpetuate a hoax. Why? They want to sell their story and be the
next amityville horror.
Trust your senses. To an extent. I see an apparition. I caught it on video. Multiple witnesses. It's supplemented by a disembodied voice.
Something grabs me and snatches me off a chair. I'm in a room by myself and an object on the floor hits me in the head and its on video.
Paranormal Investigators don't thoroughly investigate homes because they want to catch evidence. They want to make their name on something like
The shows on tv knowingly allow rigged houses to air. All knowingly fake or allow faked evidence on tv without a disclaimer. They speak in a
scientiffic manner but it's barely peudoscience.
Did you know an unplugged disconnected home stereo speaker can speak to you without a power source? When I was a kid my dad had a CB radio with a 500
watt amp and a firestick on his pickup. I was rolling around in bed not wanting to get up. He squeezed the mic and said "Get up Jay". And the
wattage was so high it blew through all my stereo speakers. How many of you pseudo investigators would label that paranormal if you were the one in
bed and this distorted voice bellows through your bedroom telling you to get up? How many houses do you investigate that has anything with a speaker
in it, that's within a 1/4 mile of a road that truckers or hunters use?
I may sound uppity in how we investigate and the things we've investigated. I am. I've accompanied numerous other teams and consulted for several
others and even the church and other churches. And all of the investigators I've worked with I've seen nothing but garbage. The best I've seen is
the paranormal debunking show on the National Geographic channel. They do damn good work.
I apologize if I offended any investigators out there. But I've never accompanied another team who did it right.
