The Case Against “Paranormal Unity”; or why Ghost Hunters have become meaningless.

Ghosts, God and the Trouble With Ghosthunters.

So as Martin Gardner said, I think the decline of traditional religious belief may actually underlie, rather than be the opposite of, this explosion of popular ghosthunting. Still a great article by Hayley, and got me thinking as normal. Now I really must go do some work! Continue reading

Poltergeists

Yesterday (Halloween) Becky and I attended the SPR Study Day on Poltergeists. I won’t be writing a review for my blog as I have been asked to write a review for the SPR magazine The Paranormal Review but obviously the subject is one of considerable interest. I have been fascinated for nearly twenty years with Poltergeist/RSPK cases, and have participated in a number of investigations (one minor one is reported elsewhere in an earlier post on this blog). I have a very real interest in following up any case – those who feel they may be experiencing something of this nature are welcome to drop me an email at christianjennsenromer@hotmail.com and if nothing else I can put you in touch with the SPR Spontaneous Cases committee, or perhaps offer some advice and support.

How to Investigate a Haunting – Part Three

Hints for Ghosthunters! It often sounds rather glamorous to work in psychical research. Imagine the scene: a rainy day in downtown Bury St Edmunds. An office, neon light flashing behind the Venetian blinds, the whirr of an overhead fan. The … Continue reading
