6 posts in this topic

They say they’ve been scolded, picked on, welcomed and even hit on — by spirits.

It comes along with the job for a ghost investigator.

“Ninety-nine percent of the time they just want validation or they want to know that nothing is going on. They want someone to come in and they say, ‘give me alternative explanations,’ ” team member Shawn Bechtel said.

Okay which one is it?

He just wanted to use the fancy word Validation and the made up % to make him sound hip, cool and etc etc.

Why don't these people ever try to claim the JREF Challenge? If they are constantly confirming the paranormal, that million dollar prize should be easy to win. Of course, there is the possibility they are wrong or just making $#1t up.

Oh good, they are presenting that crap as fact in the local library.

Now, now. It would be extraordinarily difficult to use a haunting to prove the JREF Challenge, no matter how legitimate the phenomena. Hauntings are generally location-specific, and it would be hard to setup controlled conditions in a residence or workplace; and it says in the challenge rules that the Final Test has to occur at JREF offices or a location of their choosing. Hauntings are also not very predictable; ghost investigators are willing to sit around for hours waiting for an unspecified random event to occur that the can catch in recording, but in the JREF Challenge you have to predict the precise nature of the paranormal happening and a time frame in which to produce it, and only events of the predicted nature will "count."

Given the ways the rules are set up, only phenomena that can be done repeatedly on command are good candidates for a challenge, and hauntings--no matter how active--are just not going to cut it.
