What does the word scientist really mean?
“A scientist, in the broadest sense, refers to any person that engages in a systematic activity to acquire knowledge or an individual that engages in such practices and traditions that are linked to schools of thought or philosophy. ...”
“A person who has studied science, especially one who is active in a particular field of investigation.”
A person who studies natural phenomena in a systematic manner.”
There are people, “scientists”, diligently at work to prove that not only the scientific mainstream opinion is wrong about UFOs, but also about the paranormal. The evidence is in and it can not be disputed. Something that is real in our natural world has been ignored. The mainstream scientific community has ignored evidence of the paranormal and UFOs because of prejudice reinforced by debunkers. The idea that the majority of scientists will not look at evidence because others say it is nonsense shows the hypocrisy and lack of courage we are dealing with.
It has been very difficult to get repeatable evidence on UFOs but that’s not the case with hauntings and psychical research. There is strong evidence of its existence and it has been verified by technology repeatedly.
I just watched another ghost hunting show on TV. Are these scientific endeavors? You bet they are. I know most scientists have nightmares of “religious dogma” when they think of hauntings, spirits, demons and such. The truth is these investigations have not proved any religion is right. Most of the research seems to indicate no one has the whole story. But, there is a real story.
Many Paranormal scientist research groups have proved, by repeated experiments, with scientific instruments, that something intelligent, not visible, which may, or may not identify themselves, actually exists . Some of these “intelligences” have the same memories as those that have died. Many times this research was done by different paranormal groups at the same place with very similar results. Is this NOT the same as repeated results in any other research of “natural phenomena"?
I know many scientists believe the debunkers opinions when it comes to these topics… but these skeptics do a very poor job of research. They do very little leg work and hardly any witness interviews. When they do interview people who experience these phenomenon, they try to steer them, or cherry pick ones that’sare easily explained. Research like that would be a laughing stock in any other scientific mainstream discipline.
As an example recently I watched a TV show where a skeptic was interviewing a haunting witness. Later on in the show the skeptic offered an easy explanation. The person he chose to interview had a very mundane experience, so it was easily explained. But, what is forgotten in this debunking presentation is, any well respectable paranormal investigator would have offered the same explanation. The real deal is what is so impressive. That real deal is the personal experiences back up by video, audio, inferred, full spectrum video, frequency detectors, temperature indicators, showing ghosts, hearing ghosts and measuring ghosts … yep ghosts.
It seems like the universe is not done surprising us.
I am sick of the non-interest by mainstream scientists in the important subjects of UFOs and the Paranormal, especially when they make comments in front of TV with no real background knowledge on the subject matter. Just because you’re an astronomer doesn’t mean you know about UFOs. Would you interview an astronomer on weather patterns or a meteorologist on distant galaxies? So, why in heavens name, do they have experts, with no real experience, sound off on a subject they know virtually nothing about? Well, someone might say they know a great deal about the cosmos. So, what are they, an expert on alien life or where our technology will be (God willing) in a thousand years…how about ten thousand years? Some scientist suggest we will never go to the stars so beings from other stars can’t come here. It is amazing how many times that has been attributed to other scientific theories only to be proven wrong.
I know for many scientists this stuff is hard to believe. I know the rational mind will dismiss these shows as staged by the TV show producers. The truth is some of what happens couldn’t be staged. The shows themselves have had program technicians quit because of their experiences in haunted locations. When interviewed, one said, “I never thought in an instant this was real.” How do we know this happened? It happened right on video. The scientists filmed and measured thousand of “unexplainables” at these locations. One that really had me sit up and gasping was when they filmed, with infrared, footprints appearing on a floor as they walked casually away.
I believe by all criteria these are Ghost and UFO Scientists (G&U) and they have a type of peer review. They can lose credibility through sloppy research or dishonesty. G&Us are grilled at every conference. There is always question and answer sessions and serious questions are asked…and answered. G&Us ask for independent opinions on video and audio evidence. Skeptic believers abound in the haunting field and they want proof real proof. A really important point I want to make here is: they get it. No matter who they are, they all say there is paranormal activity at certain areas or UFOs that can not, I repeat, can not be explained. That alone should case the antenna on any honest scientist go up.
Could humans have an energy that lives on after death…of course we could. Could we have some choice after we die…possibly? Could UFOs be from other worlds? I ask anyone, does our science even have the half the answers on the universe when 95% of it’s contents are unexplained? As for evil (demon) spirits, the reports show they are excised by different religious and belief systems according to the area where it has happening. This shows to me this has nothing to do with religion and yet everything to do with our power to affect this dimension or realm.
A courageous scientist would take notice when a hardened, no nonsense police detective has his or hers entire belief system turned around because his murder case is solved by a psychic. In all of these cases astounding evidence was produced by the psychic with no possibility of knowledge.
Detectives are the professional experts in their fields. One detective may be fooled by psychics, but all of them?
Because scientists have placed such a horrible stigma on anyone who pursues paranormal answers, including detectives, In almost every murder case the detectives were very skeptical to bring in a skeptic but when you are that desperate you go against the scientific grain. Detectives have stated over and over some murderers would have probably gotten away if it wasn’t for a psychics help. Some of those murders were serial killers.
Some of the attitudes of the populations at large as reflected by those detectives can be directly link to the campaign against the paranormal by scientist and debunkers alike. Scientist and debunkers will say we are doing this as a service to the public. How, by closing a door on a ongoing phenomenon that may have far reaching benifit?
Don’t get me wrong there are scientist who have taken the courage to test these theories. The DVD clip I present below is from the 27th conference held by the “Society For Scientific Exploration”, but once these get involved with testing these theories, the mainstream treats them as if they had leprosy.
Scientist have them self to blame for the resentment felt not only in our communities but around the country. When somebody has an experience like some of us have had and is dismissed by someone who wasn’t there and knows virtually nothing about the subject, it appears, to believers and non-believers alike, as the height of arrogance….hum….arrogance and scientist- who would have ever known?
