Paranormal Forums Pt. 2
I do like writing on the forums. But, sometimes you get an added surprise that you don't expect. Like for example: Why is it that you can never say that you are a sensitive? Or, you maybe be "psychic". OMG! That word. You can never ever say. Because of mostly because of Ghost Hunters there is a pride to say your a skeptic. Almost an air of being above the "low life" believers. You can never ever say "occult" either. Which to me, this is all part of the paranormal field. Even religion. It always makes me laugh when people talk about "demons". Good Grief! Don't they get it? That's a religious belief. But, No, we are skeptics, religion has nothing to do with the paranormal. It doesn't make sense?
Because of this I believe that the paranormal field went two step backwards. True, it's not like it use to be like it was during it's height in the 19th century. A lot of fakes. But, isn't there fakery now? Sometimes you find people writing about "equipment". Please, don't get me started. In the real world of electronics. People that have worked many years, scientist, engineers, etc. These people know that the equipment is not a 100% accurate. And, the equipment goes through rigourous testing. Sometimes using a "clean room". Where radio waves cannot penetrate. So the bottom line is: Do you think you can put a toy together from Radio Shack. You can run off and use it and say your getting an accurate reading? Come on! To be scienticfic. You have to go the whole 9 yards. So this gives you a taste of what kind of discussions that go on in a forum. Part 3 tomorrow.
