Natural background noise or messages from the other side?Williamson, a 47-year-old former cleaner, is a dedicated collector of "electronic voice phenomena", commonly known as EVP - the mysterious voices or voice-like sounds, often distorted amid other extraneous noise, which can crop up on tape recordings, broadcasts, even telephone answering machines.

  • We should respect a person not because who they are, but what they do with their life, is the way they earn our respect.

Of course! It's just really noise, and some people will "hear" people talking and stuff. I find it interesting but a little creepy.

Though I believe in the potential of EVP, I would imagine that in this day and age of household computers and easily obtained audio software, that 80 % or more are simple fakes and hoaxes.

EVP is never going to get scientific validation because to screen out the ambient noise for a clearer signal you block out the lower frequencies that the voices are in. But I have heard some fair samples on the different sights and do not rule out the possibility for future successful communications.

Mostly its just peoples brains telling them they are hearing something because they are trying to hear anything so very much!
But not always...................
