What about the skeptics?

23 April, 2011 // 13 Comments

As a paranormal researcher who uses science and skepticism in her research I often find myself wedged between people who believe in ghosts or use pseudo-scientific techniques to research them, and those who identify as skeptics or non-believers.

The Other Side & The End

20 April, 2011 // 7 Comments

Many people are fine to live their whole lives treating death as a catalyst to a potential next step for their existence, some people decide early on that when you die that’s it. All done. No encore.
