Ghostsplaining: Men Explain Ghosts To Me

If there’s one thing any reader of this blog can be assured of, it’s that I have more than just a passing interest in ghosts. That’s why I love to discuss ghosts with anyone who will listen; I’m skeptical about the existence of ghosts, have had a fair few odd experiences which help me to remain open-minded about them, and have been investigating active hauntings since the age of 18 (over a decade ago), so… why do people feel the need to let me know ghosts aren’t real?

A conversation about Sasquatch

How can a person know a sound they hear is a Sasquatch if they cannot see the alleged Sasquatch, and if it isn’t on verifiable  record what a Sasquatch sounds like? That is the question I asked Matt Moneymaker on Twitter that led to him telling me I wasn’t old enough to understand and should go an ask my parents. His reasoning was that many adults had asked him the same and had no problem accepting the answer that he knew because he’d heard Sasquatch before.

Turning your back on nonsense

In reflecting my previous blog post called ‘When claims of authority fall flat on their face’ I realise I was too quick to judge the Bomber County Paranormal team. Since writing my criticism is has been brought to my attention that Kerry, who is the founder and organizer of the group, is attempting to turn the team into a rational one after splitting from what is described as a less rational former team. I applaud that attempt, however the original blog post was written based on my initial impression of their team website and that’s an impression that unfortunately no amount of good intent can change.

FAO: Don Philips, the ghost hunter.

After my blog post yesterday about how some ghost hunters were behaving irrationally over the recent discovery of a buried cottage at Pendle Hill I thought it only right to let those I mentioned by name know I had done so. I think it’s good blogging etiquette to do so. In response, Don Philip has posted on his Facebook wall that I am ‘A young lady trying to make a name for herself’.

I would like to point out that if there is anything I have made a name for myself through, it is being open-minded in my approach to paranormal research. I am willing to point out when I am wrong, and I learn new things all the time and change my beliefs and opinions as new facts become available. My main aim with my paranormal research is, and always has been, to learn more about the reality behind these experiences. This is something I have continued to achieve year after year.  Continue reading FAO: Don Philips, the ghost hunter.
