Ghosts & Hauntings

Michigan couple capture 'ghost' on nanny cam

March 27, 2019 | Comment icon 113 comments



Heather Brough and Joshua Higgins believe that the alleged specter may also be harming their baby.
The couple, who live in Michigan's Highland Township, were left fearful for their young daughter's safety after filming a strange shape moving across the room next to her crib.

"It was chilling," said Higgins. "It was literally a chill down your spine."

To make matters worse, the couple are convinced that whatever is haunting their home is also responsible for scratching their child's face.
"It scares us that it could do something else," said Brough. "I mean, there was a morning I woke up and I felt like someone's hands were around my neck."

"It's not physically just going after her, it feels like it's going after myself too."

According to Higgins' father, the previous owner of the property committed suicide.

The family have since taken to sleeping together in the same room whie they wait to move out.

1. Assumption. The child isn't that old. You don't know how long the camera has been set up.  2. Assumption on both counts. You don't know how "smart" they are and have no reason to assume they tested anything to overrule their ghost theory. 3. Assumption. How do you know what they would and/or wouldn't consider without asking the parents themselves?  4. Bull. TV stations will run any story viewers may find interesting. If not for them, we probably wouldn't be discussing it. 5. So what? You're right. She supposedly felt hands on her neck. The baby got scratched. Something odd was on the video.... [More]

I’ll comment on that sentence as it gets to the heart of our difffering views. First I do not think the  ‘guilty until proven innocent’ attitude is justified. And expecting proof of the paranormal from something like this is not to be reasonably expected. i see no reason to take such a decidedly anti-paranormal attitude into the consideration. By now I have concluded before this case existed that paranormal things do happen sometimes beyond reasonable doubt. I believe the type of events claimed in this case are precedented and may be rare but then ‘not all THAT rare’. I consider all your norma... [More]

It's literally the opposite attitude. At this point, the paranormal is found innocent of existing as opposed to being guilty of existing.  This event is claimed to be paranormal. Therefore the video is supposed evidence. Under scrutiny, it seems it should be inadmissible due to a better, more reasonable explanation of what has occured. Seeing as how nothing so far has "proved" the paranormal and it's been claimed proof is difficult or impossible to procure, what do you recommend as something that should be considered "reasonable" in terms of such?

I consider all the phenomena in this case to already have precedence in the annals of the paranormal. I am just judging likeliness in this particular case at this point.

To definition of paranormal zigs and zags so much that it's impossible to prove or disprove for everyone. Since ghosts cannot be explained under any definition it's impossible to disprove them by those that support the idea that they exist at all. There's nothing scientific about them, they defy any rules of non-paranormal sense. They can be seen apparently, but cannot be photographed, they can be heard but never recorded clearly, they haunt locations over extended periods of time but seemingly no evidence is recorded that cannot be explained by reasonable, realistic, fair and completely prosa...

I am probably the last person you want to hear from but I believe the afterlife exists beyond reasonable doubt from just the so-called paranormal evidence: Afterlife Evidence Now on to ghosts  and such so-called paranormal phenomena, I believe there is quite a large bit explained in considerable detail in eastern and western esoteric traditions. The key being the existence of matter/energy in dimensions beyond the familiar three of our physical senses and instruments. Yes, we live in an age where materialist science is supposed to rule the roost and where all this superstitious stuff like ghos... [More]

It turns out that the latest generation has shown an increased interest in all sorts of long discredited pseudoscience such as astrology. I was not surprised to learn that the Dunning Kruger effect has led some uneducated people to believe that natural foods contain genes while GMOs do not contain genes. The new interest in that malarkey does not mean it is somehow being shown to be useful or correct or not a pseudoscience mumbo jumbo blather fest. It simply means people are back into the fad of talking about astrology. It comes and goes. The simple fact that people chat about such subjects as... [More]

Finally located the article I was looking for. It is from 2014 https://www.upi.com/Science_News/2014/02/11/Majority-of-young-adults-think-astrology-is-a-science/5201392135954/ Here is a 2011 study https://www.researchgate.net/publication/252610393_Astrology_Beliefs_among_Undergraduate_Students Here is a Pew Research study from 2015 https://www.pewresearch.org/science/2015/09/10/what-the-public-knows-and-does-not-know-about-science/ These articles should shed some light on the general public's knowledge of science.
