    Imagine it like this, you go looking for olden day Pirates (for this hypothetical to work , they are known for saying "Yarrrr"). The geo-coordinates of a ghost ship is known to you, you sail there to the middle of the sea, you press record on the EVP device, you are all alone, and then, you hear an Authentic Pirate Ghost say "Yarrrrrrrr"

    1. A "known ghost ship". So for you, it is a foregone conclusion that ghosts is what you will experience. In other words, you are not expecting - or looking for - fraud. If you see/hear something that could be ghosts, you'll assume it is.
    2. You're not in the middle of nowhere; you're not even in a "cowboy ship"; you're in a populated area, which means other people can easily get there too. Hoaxsters and pranksters, for example
    3. You are not all alone. There are others on your team. Others that, like you, really really want to get good publicity.
    4. Everyone knows how to say "Yarrrr". There's nothing authentic about that.


    For a sincere ghost hunter, the job is to rule out all possible mundane explanations, leaving nothing but a paranormal explanation. Otherwise, it is an exercise in wishful thinking.

    Look, I get it. You want to believe, and this will confirm your beliefs if you let it. But that's a bar set way too low in a world where a lot of people are happy to sell you snake oil. This is science forum. There are plenty of fora out there for believers who will be only too happy to support your beliefs.

    The "Yarrrrrrrr" is not authentic. It was pretty much invented by Robert Newton who played Long John Silver in the 1950 version of Treasure Island.

    That would be HARD PROOF that Robert Newton's ghost is haunting an invisible ghost ship in the middle of the sea!

    Warning points currently expire 6 months from the date of issue.

    MR is well aware of this, and plays the system to ensure that he can continue to break the rules while avoiding a permanent ban. Apparently, the temporary bans are not too much of an inconvenience for him.

    While these are the rules, he is entitled to work within them, of course. Mind you, as a repeat offender over the course of many years now, really MR only remains a member here because we choose to tolerate him. We would be well within our rights to ban him as a member who requires constant moderator attention.

    5 months is shorter than 6 months.
    Can you explain the difference in behaviour between Mark Turner ( just permanently banned) and Magical Realist's behaviour over the years?

    Subject Magical Realist: Not permanently banned for this behaviour over years.
    Compared to Mark Turner just permanently banned.
    Ps. JamesR, you and Magical should get a room.

    Mark Turner was banned as a sock.

    Can you take this up in a thread in the Feedback Forum?

    This thread is struggling enough as it is.

    This from someone who's never observed a paranormal investigation in his whole life.

    God is not a matter of "common knowledge" so much as a matter of common belief. I'm not going to let you derail this thread with offtopic God talk. If you wanna discuss belief in God go to the Religion forum and start a new thread there on it.

    Yes it is. When you have multiple eyewitness accounts and repeated instances of the same phenomena, then that is data supporting the phenomena as real.

    Wrong. I said from the very beginning I wasn't going to give you evidence. I even told you why I wasn't--- because skeptics always mock and ridicule and reject the evidence. Then I told you where you can see evidence on Youtube, which you ofcourse refuse to look at. I never misled you or lied about anything. Don't make up things about posts that can be easily checked.

    This is a non sequitur.
    James R refuting your false claim has nothing to do with whether he's watched more TV shows than you.

    And so it is with ghosts.

    Paranormal is paranormal.
    If you can show that belief in ghosts is different from belief in God, knock yourself out.

    Well, I guess you grant the existence of God then.


    If you want to not talk about God, then you'll have to stop invoking multiple eyewitness accounts and repeated instances of the same phenomena being data that supports a phenomenon.

    If you want to talk about only ghosts, show how they're distinct, in terms of popularity and anecdotal accounts.

    You can't have your cake and eat it too.

    Hardly. First-hand account? That'll still be more evidence than MR has come up with.

    A ghost holding a selfie stick lol

    That would be irrefutable proof, though. Oh wait...the skeptics here would retort "Those are strings holding up the selfie stick!"

    I'd say the selfie stick was holding up the ghost.

    If we're ever in the same building, I will be happy to turn down the air conditioning and talk like a cowboy! Can't get more proofy than that.

    I just posted this in another thread but it seems to fit here too:

    I once lived with a cat (one never owns a cat) and one day I noticed that the cat was watching something. I looked where the cat was looking and 'saw' what appeared to be a small circular area of optical distortion, about the size of a baseball. (It was transparent, but whatever was behind it was distorted.) It was moving in the air and in a few seconds it was gone.

    I'm inclined to write it off to my eyes playing tricks on me. Except... the cat apparently saw it too and drew my attention to it. So arguably, it was out there in the objective world that the cat and I shared.

    I've never thought of it as a 'ghost', in the 'spirits of the departed' sense. It was just an anomaly (a glitch in the matrix). I don't have a clue what it was.
