in which believers simply hear whatever they want to hear. However you may interpret it 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.

i think evp and ghost making sounds through a electrical object is cheezy but i still believe it is real cuz most people get attached to the objects they cant let go near death and the souls dont go to the light so they stay with their posetion and how evp work... i dont know. lol

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.
