The Self-Isolating Atheist

Over on FreeThoughtBlogs P Z Myers has written a piece titled Dogma comes in many flavours and talks about how many atheists are not worried about challenging dogmatic religious beliefs, but when it comes to other deep-rooted beliefs such as gender stereotypes, atheists are often quick to shy away from challenging this. ‘We wouldn’t hesitate to be iconoclastic if the issue is one of faith. Break it down, we’d say, shatter those chains and think for yourself,’ Myers writes. ‘Other topics, though, are suddenly taboo. Try to go to most atheist meetings and question, for instance, conventional notions of masculinity. A significant number of those radical superstition-breakers will be appalled and start whispering about you, and divisions will form and some will cast you out.’ Continue reading

Mark Mcilroy: When Ghost Hunting Goes Bad

Mark Mcilroy only considers the paranormal when logic doesn’t cut it. ‘We are sceptics first — we will do everything we can to prove that it’s not paranormal,’ he says while posing for a photo with a night-vision camcorder and what appears to be a MEL meter, (a ghost hunting favourite thanks to its use on ghost hunting television shows.) “In a new case we’ll get one of our mediums to do a remote reading, it gives us a bit of idea on what sort of home we’re walking into, whether it’s something dark or a past family member — like a spiritual heads-up.” Continue reading

Neil DeGrasse Tyson on Human Senses and Ghosts

When asked if the church has a position on ghosts during the 2016 Christmas episode of The Infinite Monkey Cage, the Bishop of Leeds replied that ‘Christian theology says reality goes beyond what you can simply measure and see and what is – which is why we’ve talked before about how science can address the questions of how and what but not the meaning questions such as why. So, reality has to go beyond simply what you can measure and what you can see … I think theology takes seriously that there’s a huge dimension beyond what is simply physical.’ Continue reading

Biased Ghost Research: Is Seeing Really Believing?

When ghost hunters attempt to research ghosts in a scientific way one of the first mistakes that they will make is insisting that although their methodology might look unscientific to the outside observer, this simply isn’t the case. Ghost hunters often conduct their investigations in the dark, use pieces of equipment that have no real use in ghost research (such as EMF meters, REM pods, Dictaphones and similar), may employ the use of psychics and mediums, and use spirit communication techniques because they claim that they are attempting to experience the occurence reported to them by the eye-witness.
