What would you say to those who say there is no scientific proof of paranormal (ghosts)?


*If you believe in them in the first place.

To believe you must have evidence...if there is nothing evident..belief becomes irrational..
Which it is anyway...

What can you say? If the evidence is clear. If it is repeated over and over. If they still refuse to believe, there will be nothing you can do or say to convince them. People used to say that a curveball thrown by a pitcher doesn't change direction it is just an optical illusion. This is the same as people who say an EVP is just static noise on a recorder. I know what I heard or captured on camera is really there.

Maybe people won't accept the evidence because they are afraid of it. It is nice, cozy thought that if you live a good life, you will be rewarded in an afterlife. The evidence that is being captured is showing that not everyone is benefiting from living a good life. They are still here. Why, maybe we will find out, but for now it is scaring a lot of people. I think that this is stopping them from believing in the overwhelming amount of scientific evidence that is out there. We don't know what it is or especially why it is, but we do know IT IS.

I believe there is some evidence of ghosts/paranormal. There are some non scientific folks, who in the course of their investigations obtain some unidentified anomalies, both visual and auditory. (don't get me wrong, most of it is bunk) What I would really like to see is a valid scientific team going to a known "hotspot" and setting up a long term observation of the site, with multiple and varied types of cameras and the best audio equipment available; as well as other gadgets for measuring all the other things that we have come to believe accompany a paranormal event. Once these are in place the site needs to be closed and treated like a laboratory and carefully monitored for outside interference. IMO this should be a months long investigation rather than just a few days as are most.

The problem is that most real scientists are so afraid of losing their credibility that they won't touch this kind of project. I can't help but to think though that if one did, then submitted their documentation for peer review and it was accepted as valid...their name would go down in history.

I agree, if a real and serious investigation was done we would probably find real proof. I think they need to set up equipment though and seal the house off. Then see what happens.
