Oh wow. This is the time of year that my news alerts for "paranormal" are bloated with links to media stories about local ghost hunter/paranormal investigation groups giving presentations at local libraries and community centers, running evening ghost tours around town or historical locations, and generally promoting their services.

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

Great article.  These points describing most paranormal investigative teams deserve repeating:
  • Poor knowledge of the history of paranormal research;
  • Misunderstanding and misuse of scientific words such as "energy", "quantum", and "scientific method";
  • Use of equipment for purposes which it not designed to serve or equipment that spits out random data interpreted as meaningful;
  • A research team consisting of people with no scientific background;
  • Heavy reliance on anecdotes and personal feelings;
  • Over-confidence in personal perception and interpretation;
  • Inability to recognize how easily people can be and ARE fooled or mistaken;
  • Lack of understanding about coincidence and probability;
  • Proneness to magical thinking (religion, occult, psychics, divination);
  • A preexisting belief in the paranormal as genuine with only lip service, if that, to finding "normal" explanations for anomalies.

I'm sorry but I have to disagree, when I 'twinkle' those really high notes on my piano, I know that a spirit somewhere is cringing because they really hate that. :whistle:
