New research in to paranormal sounds recorded during the Enfield Poltergeist case have found the audio "non-human".
The research published in the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research has concluded that the audio recorded at the time of the haunting could not have been caused by normal human activity.
New scientific research which uses evidence from the world famous Enfield Poltergeist case has come a step closer to proving conclusively the existence of paranormal activity.

Listen. honestly i dont think the audio proves much because its easy for alot of people to talk in a forced deep voice

Totally agree, thats why i posted the footage, and new 'science' is saying that this does carry evidence of being NOT from a human throat? But how does science know the difference between reality and the dead talking?

Is there anything written explaining why the scientific researches think that the voice could come from non-human origins? I mean, it's all very well saying "we believe there is evidence that this recording isn't from a humans voice box" but there must be reasons for them thinking this. I assume the "evidence" is the sound waves recorded not matching up to the waves recorded by human voice or something along those lines.

The Enfield case is my favourite and well as the most interesting cases I have heard of. I'm sure that some of the evidence may have been faked as there was a lot of pressure placed on the children/ghost to perform, that said most of the witness statements seem very credible. Without a frame of reference to compare any evidence too, main stream thinking will always shoot it down, much like the flat earth believers used to. Sometimes I do feel that the (s)sceptic and ®esearcher conversations go a bit like this. ®I have just come in from the rain and my hair is wet. (s)People's hair gets wet in ... [More]

Maurice Grosse spoke to speech therapists who suspected that the voice was not coming from Janet's usual vocal chord equipment but by the second set of vocal chords all people have. Actors can be trained to speak using these 'false chords' to produce a deep gravely voice, however it can be a painful process. This theory was soon backed up by a recording of "the voice" on a laryngograph (registers patterns made by frequency waves as they pass through the larynx). However to keep up this 'gravely' voice for hours on end would naturally have consequences on Janet's normal voice. But Janet's voice... [More]

Ah, that makes sense, although there is clearly still the possibility that it is hoaxed. I've always been very skeptical of 'demonic possession' (being an atheist/agnostic (I'm aware this is contradictory but I see myself more as an 'open atheist') I have never really believed in the Catholic church's 'exorcism' cases) but if there was indeed scientific evidence to show otherwise that would be mind blowing. You’re right that this and most evidence can be hoaxed. I am hugely sceptical myself and believe that the vast majority of possessions are nothing more than schizophrenia or similar illness...
