Um, the thread... It's 10 years old. People probably won't get responses from posters who wrote back in 2002. Just sayin.

It is kind of interesting to read what they said 10 years ago... Back then it was just a suggestion that since some ghost stories report cold, would thermal imaging work? Today it's almost common to see thermal cameras in the TV shows, and a whole handful of other ghost hunting groups own one and use it. Also is a mention of equipment seeing past the visual spectrum. We do that now too with infrared night vision equipment. Imaging of magnetic fields was mentioned as a no go then, but now we have this... http://www.environme...re/1393?image=0

Ahhh.  Fair point.

I usually notice necrothreads but missed this that this one had just been revived from the dead before I responded.

I still don't believe for one second that so called 'orb' photographs show spirits. I think that they are light reflections from dust motes etc magnified by the lens of the digital camera or glitches in the way the digital camera works.

It would be cool to see some thermal images of ghosts instead of the usual dubious orb photos or the even more dubious e.v.p.s.

Not sure if Im doing this right, but for some time now I have looked for some type of explination to what I have experienced myself and a few others, before I continue, just want to make sure im doing this right

And why should we trust that they do?

'Orbs' in photos have been definitively explained.  It is incumbent to those claiming they are something other than what they obviously are to prove their position.

I tend not to trust people who assert that I should trust that they are right.  If they have a convincing case, let them present it.
