I have seen the wide vast range of paranormal reality shows coming out and catching quite the evidence. With all this technology now, is it showing that spirits and ghost do exist?
It is quite silly to me - but that is just my personal opinion.
All I see if people running around with video camera catching pictures of themselves running around with video cameras and blathering about drafty abandoned buildings having cold spots.
No, it's showing that ghosts and spirits get good ratings, which shows how many gullible people there are in the world.
Ghost hunting shows exist because they make good money for their advertisers, the same as reality shows. There is one more connection between ghost hunting shows and reality shows; very few people believe them, but with the hype that writers add to them to make them interesting also makes advertisers flock to them.
I have never seen a reality show or ghost hunting show that I can relate to.
I have, however, witnessed ghosts, apparitions or whatever words you want to use that I can relate to. None of these encounters have been violent, and I am thankful for that. There have been people report violent encounters which I cannot disbelieve nor discredit. People have experiences in their lives that, to others, seem unreal. To people who have had the experience, it is very real, whether others choose to believe or not. We cannot judge or evaluate experiences that we have not had, and not all people will have these experiences. We know actually nothing of life after death unless we have eperienced it. Trust me, that is an experience we will all have.
Well it's been a long time since I've seen ah-paranormal spirits.
Maybe if you don't believe it - it doesn't exist.
Maybe if you do believe it - it does exist.
Things can only be objectively true, with empirical evidence to back them up. Simply believing something to be true, doesn't make it so. Whilst I enjoy those ghost hunting shows, I recognise them to be entertainment only. They usually involve people sitting around a table, with their hands touching, saying something along the lines of "If there is anyone there, please give us a sign." No sign is ever forthcoming. No spirits are ever seen, or heard. All we have are TV presenters saying that they felt cold spots, or saying, "Did you feel that?" It is always very silly, but enjoyable nonetheless. But if people are watching these shows in the hope of finding evidence for an afterlife, they will be disappointed.
That's just designed for entertainment and ratings though. Although few and far between, I have been in the company of, I guess you'd call them a spiritualist, on a couple of occasions, that not only told me about my past, but gave me a very accurate description of my future. And no, it was not a vague account. The rational side of myself has always had a problem with this, looking for the loop holes or 'the con'. But, to this day, I cannot work out how their depiction of my future was so frighteningly accurate.
I too have had some extraordinary "psychic" experiences, which I still cannot explain. However, they did not involve mediums, but were things that happened to myself. I tend not to repeat them in detail, because I know that if someone were to tell me that the same experience had happened to them, I simply would not believe them.
I don't watch them. It's for entertainment only. If anyone had proof positive, it wouldn't be on those shows. It would splashed across the news and on the front page of 50 magazines
My wife watches those shows, and I always get a giggle out of them. When one or two girls (it's always the female members of the "investigators") are huddled in a dark corner and frightened half to death from being alone I always wonder "what about the lighting and camera crew"? What about the guy watching the monitor a room away? Where's the director? WHERE'S THE GUY SAYING "TAKE ONE!" and snapping the board?
Watching one such popular show, where the medium had gone into trance and was supposed to be taken over by his spirit guide. He was being very dramatic, with all the other presenters listening with eager attention. Someone then said "Cut!" The medium then amazingly was immediately out of his trance and he and the presenters then burst out laughing and were making fun of the medium's performance. They obviously didn't realise the cameras were still filming, and this is now popular viewing on Youtube.
Just as good is the Harry Hill's TV Burp clip that appears in the "related videos" section. Watch the same "psychic" trying loads of names on a bemused family without success, until one of them eventually goes "Paul. Yeah, I used to go to school with a guy named Paul."
the shows are definitely not real ... I think i watched 1 show and it looked totally fake to me ... even though i do believe in the unseen.
The word 'spirit' is a synonym for 'breath', 'wind' or 'moving air'. It has the same original meaning in most other languages as well, such as Greek and Hebrew.
So whenever you read the word "spirit" in the Bible, just remember that what it's talking about is actually just air and nothing else.
As for these 'paranormal' shows, they are complete garbage.
So I guess you're saying we don't really need air at all?
That reminds me of a study I heard about once from a physicist I knew. He said some researchers had concluded that air is actually harmful to life. They had learned that if you put a living creature in a vacuum and then introduce air in varying increments, then even the minutest amounts of air would cause the experimental subject to die!
I know some won't catch on right away, but there should be an Aha Moment for most people at some point.
I live with "spooky crap" every day, in fact, I grew up with "spooky crap" insofar as my mother spent her whole life talking to spirits. Of course, from my perspective she was most probably mentally ill, but now my youngest daughter also speaks to spirits, and finds things that are lost, and seems to know when something especially bad is going to happen to a family member. She's been in therapy and put on medications, but none of that has put a stop to her particular gifts. Both my girls tell me we live in a house that is occupied by a friendly female spirit that talks to them and watches over and protects us and they have been aware of her almost since the day we moved into the place. So, if there is such a thing as a "haunted house" then according to my daughters, we live in one and we seem to have just the opposite experiences from what is shown on these ghost hunter type shows. In fact, everyone that comes into the house always comments on the peaceful atmosphere and the sense of comfort and wellbeing they have while there.
Well I have seen those type of shows before but I cant really say ghosts and stuff like that really exist since I have not experienced it myself before but if i did i would have to say that it is true but other than that I dont.
I'm a firm believer in paranormal events!I see orbs every now and then and my dogs are my proof.
I enjoy some of the paranormal shows. But, I don't think that the technology that is used for the shows are a proof positive for paranormal activity. Nothing aside from personal experience is.
I've experienced many paranormal/ supernatural things in my life. Yet, it is impossible and fruitless to convince anyone of my experiences.
Yes I believe on this that ghost exists but they are not making trouble for everyone. One who they likes they grab inside the body and then they remain there. This is I have seen personally and when they show their signs it clearly change the voice of the person and you will have no doubt that there is someone under the body of the person.
