How Ghost Evidence Is Rated And How People Get It Wrong

20 March, 2015 // 0 Comments

The plural of anecdote is not data.  It’s a rule that anyone involved in paranormal research, even casually, is familiar with. The things that we experience are open to our personal biases and the biases of those around us – not to mention the flawed memory that we have to contend with when trying to accurately recall something that [...]

GHOST CHILD SPOTTED IN ABANDONED ORPHANAGE ON GOOGLE STREET VIEW The Metro reports that the above photo ‘which came to light on yesterday Friday 13th [a/n: spooooky], is believed to show a child weeping inside the Victorian red-brick building.’ For those struggling to locate the ghost, look at the bottom left corner of the bottom [...]

Weakly Ghost Bulletin #6

13 February, 2015 // 0 Comments

GHOST CAUGHT IN PHOTO BEHIND MUSICIANS Many people are convinced that the photo above (as well as a series of other photos that can be seen by BELOW) show a ghostly figure in the window at the back of the room. The “figure” appears to move across the window in different shots but event though it does look quite odd it’s most [...]

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.

After my recent post about the ghost photo currently making the headlines after someone taking a tour of Alcatraz suggested they’d caught the apparition of a woman in a window, Bob Dezon, he who taught me how to ghost, has discovered additional photos online that bust open the idea that the ghost photo currently doing the rounds is [...]
