If You’re Angry At The Paranormal Community & You Know It…

31 August, 2014 // 4 Comments

Clap your hands! Or don’t! It’s your choice! As is the way you vent your anger at the “paranormal community”. Believe me when I say that I’ve been there… I have scrutinised other ghost researchers through judgemental eyes, felt anger rise within at their pseudo-scientific and/or unethical behaviour, written [...]

Am I Wasting My Time?

24 August, 2014 // 6 Comments

Sometimes I’ll encounter skeptics and non-believers who think that I waste my time when trying to engage people via my blog and providing insight into paranormal subjects where others would simply state “there’s no such thing as ghosts” and be done with it. Perhaps, it has been suggested in the past, I should just move on [...]

Why Huff Paranormal Didn’t Contact The Ghost Of Robin Williams

24 August, 2014 // 44 Comments

The tagline on the Huff Paranormal website states ‘Pushing The Boundaries Of Spirit Communication’ so that you know from the start that they’re completely biased in their research which mainly involves the use of ghost box and similar pseudo-scientific ghost “communication” devices. I visited their website [...]

Most Haunted Is Scary And Here’s Why

23 August, 2014 // 4 Comments

On Thursday evening at 10pm I sat down to watch the return of Most Haunted. My intention was to tweet along with the show and counter any pseudo-scientific claims that they made during the broadcast, and yet I need not have bothered. There was no use of EMF Meters, laser grid pens, thermal imaging equipment, dictaphones or thermometers throughout [...]

Live-tweeting Most Haunted

21 August, 2014 // 2 Comments

Most Haunted is back. Tonight. At 10pm on Really (Freeview 17 Sky 248 Virgin 267). As much as I moan about paranormal reality television I have a secret love for Most Haunted because it is the show that prompted me to become a naive but hopeful ghost hunter when I was Eighteen. I get frustrated at the bullshit they spout as factual, but it also [...]

I’m Giving Away Books To Help A Friend!

10 August, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’m a bit excited but you can’t tell. Above is a photo of me at the tomb of the McKenzie Poltergeist in Greyfriars, Edinburgh. I’ve always wanted to knock on the door of the tomb to see what would happen ever since I heard about the McKenzie Poltergeist when I was a little girl. Secretly I wanted to be punched just so I knew [...]

Comment Policy: Clarified

7 August, 2014 // 1 Comment

I try really hard to encourage good debate and discussion in the comment section of my blog and, about 9 times out of 10, the comments left by my readers (you, you lovely people) actually add to the topic being discussed. I sometimes learn things from people who leave comments and I think that’s fantasic! Yay comments! …but with all [...]

The Dawkins Problem

2 August, 2014 // 9 Comments

Richard Dawkins was right when he recently said that ‘Nothing should be off limits to discussion.’ It was a point he made in a recent blog post following the fallout that happened after he tweeted comments comparing different types of rape and paedophilia. Date rape is bad. Stranger rape at knifepoint is worse. If you think that's [...]

Is This The Beast Of Bodmin?

28 July, 2014 // 3 Comments

According to ITV West Country, Henry Warren was taking photos of Bodmin Moor when this “mystery creature” pictured above jumped out in front of him and ran off. Could it be the legendary Beast of Bodmin? Probably not.  In my opinion this is a fox – one without a bushy tail which is no uncommon among foxes (particularly if they [...]

Are Calls To The Police About Ghosts Wasting Police Time?

27 July, 2014 // 1 Comment

In 1977 when single mother Peggy Hodgson first witnessed strange noises and furniture seeming to move on its own she called the police. One of the constables that responded to her call witnessed a chair slide across the floor but ‘could not determine the cause of the movement.’[1] The incident would later become part of the Enfield [...]
