    Reliable does not mean infallible. Vision is reliable for 99% of what we do. But it's not infallible. Neither is memory. And you still deny the very fact of pareidolia.

    You cannot possibly be sincerely in denial about so many critical aspects of paranormal research.
    Anyway, there's no point in going over this again.

    The difference between you and me is that I invoke established, well-documented science, whereas you regurgitate YouTube and GhostHunters TV.

    Right. A car is reliable but not infallible. A doctor is reliable but not infallible. And perception is reliable but not infallible. I never claimed otherwise. Its reliability is well established by it being relied on by billions of people everyday. Case closed.

    When have I denied that? I take that into account with every sighting of an apparition or figure.

    I'm surprised that it's legal to build a road over a cemetery. Seems unethical, at the very least. I'd be interested in the accident stats on that road. lol

    Precisely.
    And cars still kill people in unusual circumstances; doctors still kill people in unusual circumstances, and people still see unreal things in unusual circumstances.
    We agree - most of normal life proceeds apace, but unusual things still fall afoul of our perceptions.

    It been around for yonks. It may be a spin-off from the belief in a god thing. Or vice versa.
