Paranormal television

12 June, 2010 // 1 Comment

For nearly as long as I can remember there have been television shows where people go to a haunted location with a night vision camcorder or two, turn off the lights and get scared and then call it a paranormal investigation. Bit of a misrepresentation, but there we go… These shows have always been very entertaining even though some people [...]

I don’t get it. I just don’t understand why the leaders of different religions think that I would be interested in what they have to say.
