Poltergeist or physics ?

So this happened and I am so confused. Put mug next to sink. Ran to store. Come back 20 mins later and find this, scattered from end to end, wall to wall in my kitchen. 3 ppl home and awake and no one heard anything. 3x as much water on everything than was in there to start. Wasn't thrown cuz it wouldn't be that shattered and scattered. Looks like it exploded but how?? Why? What could cause this ?

It was literally turned to dust and rubble all across the kitchen - it wasn't hot/cold by the stove/a.c not an animal/human wasn't wet and slid I have pics if anyone wants.

I personally do not feel anything in my home. It's in a little town in NEPA that my sister owned and her husband's family had owned for 40 years before that. It is a half double opened into one, my sister had bought the other side about 15 yrs back. Nothing was reported by them.
My estranged husband hated this house, calling it an energy vampire. Saying something was wrong with it. During the time my sons gf lived here, things would move after they were set down, drinks moved across room, keys and object put in odd places. At that time you heard bumps and bangs and footsteps that I always attributed to the house being large, open and old. My husband would always say he saw a woman but I never saw anything. The strangest thing I've encountered was someone whistling at me when I was home alone.

Recently my roommates claimed to have taken a photo of a 'demonic figure' in the attic bedroom but are unable to produce the pic.

My roommates are getting freaked out and after the mug incident, I don't know what to tell them. I don't think it's paranormal but it's not out of the realm of possibilities. This house is odd, but has no feelings of being 'occupied'

As I finished writing the toilet seat slammed in an empty bathroom. Now I'm not sure what to think. Can anyone shed some light?

That would have been a possibility I would have considered had the mug been broken just near the counter. There is an island in the center of my kitchen that would have stopped the pieces from sliding into the places they were found

Ok. I will post a few pics and show where the mug was left and where debris was found

But it was not even glass. Can ceramic mugs explode like that?? I don't even know. I searched the internet a bit, and found nothing but I am not going to make a career out of it. But I can say I have never had or even heard of a ceramic mug exploding in all my born days and I'm a heavy coffee/tea drinker.

I’m not sure either. They can have similar molecular structure. I assumed it was a glass mug. Are you just going by the photo? It does look pretty ceramicish. Hey @Dawnd713, what was the mug made of?

Tim, I doubt it is a coincidence but the old Papameter spontaneously flew across the room and left a gouge in the drywall at the opposite end of the room. And upon further thought I believe it occurred just about the same time that shattered mug photo got officially posted.

Strange. I’ve heard my whole kitchen sound as if everything in there hit the floor with a force I’ve never heard, just to go in there and nothing be out of place. As in the whole family jumped up to run and see the mess that was NOT being made. As to the “Mug” I’m going to give a little info 1st. I have a mirror over my mantle in the living room, I have a few crystals (geodes) that sit in front of it, the paint on my mantle is a sticky type of paint that requires you to have to pick it up even to slide it. I’m on my porch, my husband is asleep, I hear an awful crash (even though we... [More]

its not paranormal, well its paranormal in the minds of some, of course zero proof, science can find the answers too bad science is too boring for some,

It's always paranormal. No matter what, it's something spooky. Never changes. *sigh*

There is always a scientific answer for everything...just not all scientific answers are discovered as of yet!
