Five Stupid Things About Ghost Hunting
#1
If you study paranormal with an open mind and use critical thinking so many paranormal claims have non paranormal causes. Now when we look at ghost hunters we see confirmation bias before they even set foot in a home as we see them announce investigation tonight and we expect to capture great evidence or even something demonic. See a problem?
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.

Prove paranormal even exists besides in the human mind before claiming anything works.

Perhaps you could explain how any tool ghost hunters use actually work that would prove the existence.

EMF meter?

EVP? again prove its communicating with the dead.

Camera? poor photography and pareidolia?

Video? Once again not understanding how a video camera works, from focus to how IR and reflections cause tv inspired ghost hunters.

So prove paranormal even exists, oh wait it hasn't advanced in over 200 years. Just thousands more doing it wrong.
