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

31 August, 2014 // 1 Comment

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 // 0 Comments

According to the info-graphic below the peak in US UFO sightings happens between 5pm and 11pm, or “during drinking hours” if you go by the wording on the graphic itself as well as the Economist article based on the reported stats.  … the National UFO Reporting Centre, a non-profit, has catalogued almost 90,000 reported sightings [...]

My journey into non-belief

22 June, 2014 // 9 Comments

I recently wrote on my social media accounts that I no longer identified with the skeptic movement and followed this up with a blog post explaining what I meant.
