PROVING GHOSTS EXIST SCIENTIFICALLY! Was Your Experience Really Paranormal?

what’s up guys in a 2011 study 28.5 percent of surveyed people reported to have seen a ghost at some point in their lives and if you use those numbers on a larger scale then that means someone somewhere is experiencing the first ghost sighting every minute but those numbers also raise some questions mainly if ghosts really are that apparent and why is there no scientific evidence for ghosts yet the James Randi Educational Foundation has even offered 1 million dollars to anyone who can prove anything in the paranormal ghosts psychics mediums anything yet no one has claimed that million dollars yet so why has nobody claimed that money at why is there still no scientific evidence for ghosts if they really are as apparent as the numbers suggest we are going to talk about that as well as how we can go about proving that ghosts exist so first of all if goes to really do exist in the way that most people believe that they do and they really are that common than we should be able to prove it scientifically there is absolutely no reason why we should not be able to do that so since it hasn’t been proven that means we are doing something wrong right so let’s start by pointing out some of the problems with the way that people are going about it now both in trying to prove that ghosts exist and accepting ghost as a reality the first problem is that a lot of these paranormal experiences can be explained psychologically when our minds perceive something we try to make sense of it that’s what our minds do and depending on how much you believe in ghosts you will be more or less likely to explain some experience as a ghost activity but if you don’t stop thinking at “oh it’s probably a ghost” then chances are high that you will find a normal explanation for your experience another problem is that the results produced by ghost-hunting equipment can also often be explained through psychology the spirit box can be explained through pareidolia and confirmation bias the EMF meter can be triggered by a variety of outside interferences so also confirmation bias Ouija boards can be explained through the ideomotor phenomenon Kinect ghosts can be explained through flawed hardware and software and then we’ve got apps which generate random words and sounds and by the way that is how they are advertised as well they just blatantly say that it generates random words and sounds so nothing paranormal there that’s just simple code and if you do get a word that matches your situation confirmation bias and finally you’ve also got things like this (ITC photography) i mean guys come on really ok so i’m not saying that none of these things can be used to communicate with ghosts but what I am saying is that the evidence that these things produce is extremely unreliable and cannot be used to prove go scientifically because there are so many alternate explanations that make just as much or more sense right to prove ghost we need to eliminate those explanations so that we can know for certain that these are in fact ghost and that it’s not just our interpretation of data that’s actually completely unrelated so these tools needs to be improved otherwise chances are high that they are just telling you what you want to hear meanwhile anything that’s really paranormal just drift further and further into pseudo-scientific nonsense so yeah false evidence can undermine the credibility of the paranormal as a whole and unfortunately there’s a whole lot of it now I’ve got videos on most of these tools so if you want a more specific explanation of why they are not exactly credible you can click on my channel and check those videos out so don’t just say “oh you don’t know” I’ve had them done my research go watch the video and then get back to me okay so yeah whether ghosts exist or not these tools will produce false data more often than not that’s not just an opinion that is a fact maybe some tools are more accurate than others but all the tools that i just mentioned have a pretty high chance of producing false data now people often tell me that ghosts can’t be proven and you’re right not with these tools anyway because these tools can produce false data but that doesn’t mean ghosts can’t be proven at all if they exist it can be proven they are here on our planet and they apparently have the ability to influence objects and room temperatures and all that those are things that we can measure so ghosts are measurable if they exist so how do we measure them we get more accurate tools that don’t produce as much false data as these tools do because the thing with these tools is they give us more data a lot of it is going to be false data and that’s a great thing if you are interested in hunting ghosts for entertainment because you know you got more to work with but if you want to prove ghosts for realsies then know those tools are utterly useless but the fact is in science null results are still better than false results so yeah, get your sh*t together guys another misconception is that we don’t need evidence to know something is true but the problem with that is if we don’t use science then everything is paranormal if you go back in time to the 1800s with a smartphone then they’ll just call you a witch your a witch right or maybe a better example of this doll right here it’s it’s haunted it’s a ghost i believe that it’s true so why don’t you seriously why do you not believe that this doll is haunted is there any reason why you don’t believe it’s obviously floating on its own you’re haunted right yeah see he says he’s haunted and you know what the reason that you don’t believe that it’s haunted is because I didn’t dress it up nicely and manipulate you into believing that it is haunted that’s why faith is unreliable because you can easily be manipulated and if you’re not being manipulated then you are just looking at things that you want to be through and accepting those expect and then just defending it with faith if you don’t fly a certain amount of skepticism then you’re going to be prone to believe all sorts of crazy things because the world is full of liars who want to make money you’ll be vulnerable and you can be god damn sure that people will exploit that vulnerability faith is unreliable but through science we are able to accurately describe things of course it’s not always a hundred percent right but the reason that it’s more reliable than faith is because it has much higher criteria to accept something to be true if you use faith as your reasoning and you’re going to say “science isn’t right” at some point that argument is completely invalid because with faith there’s just no criteria that determines what is true and what isn’t so science shouldn’t simply be dismissed because you don’t like what it has to say chances are very high that science knows much more about the world than you or I do if science contradictory beliefs just adapt and move on and alternatively find some evidence and disprove the science that’s also a big part of science disproving existing theories that are what they are and if your beliefs contradict fact then maybe the problem doesn’t lie with the fact it’s very apparent to me that people in the paranormal community often don’t bother with fact since everyone seems to have a different theory on what ghosts are and they’ll often accept that fact and spread that as the truth be careful for demons or orbs they’re not dust they are angels angels or something right i don’t know it you get the point right people accept these theories as fact based on very little to no evidence it just sounds plausible and they start spreading it like it’s the truth that the thing is often times it’s not and this is how misconceptions are created and that in itself is also a very good example of why science overrides beliefs it just gives us more accurate answers to questions the thing is it’s just really sad to see that people dismiss science because it contradicts what they believe and it happens more often than you think you can help you might even do it yourself and a big part of that is because people have a hard time letting go of their belief we all have the illusion that our beliefs provide comfort but in reality that is often not the case and sometimes people forget that they don’t have all the answers just because something is plausible doesn’t mean that it’s true you’re basing yourself on limited information that’s why I can’t say that ghosts do or don’t exist I just do not have enough information to say either way so keep that in mind guys you’re not always right even if you are one hundred percent certain that you are you can still be wrong and again goes for me as well right I’m human you’re human well I’m a duck but whatever so how can we go about proving that ghosts exist first of all yeah improve the equipment and if you can’t just scrap it and replace it with the best alternative secondly evidence must be verifiable right so if you got a Tom Buckmaster type who is just running around like “oh I hear something I see something” really we don’t you’re not filming it so that’s not evidence ok he may very well have been in contact with ghosts but if there’s no evidence for it then there’s no reason to believe that there was a ghost there you can keep in mind that hey “maybe it’s possible” but as long as there is no evidence you shouldn’t go beyond that if you can’t verify or falsify it then it’s not evidence even if a lot of people think that it is so that’s the number-one rule so verifiable evidence this means have multiple cameras multiple recordings or if we’re going to take a temperature have a second thermometer make sure the evidence is well-documented verified that the equipment isn’t malfunctioning have multiple sessions in the same location if possible you know things like that secondly we need to eliminate other possible explanations you can just have a weird experience and say with certainty that it’s a ghost for instance maybe someone things they’re haunted like they feel like they’re being watched and you know things don’t seem quite right sometimes but in reality they’ve got CO poisoning this can happen and it’s dangerous so you can’t just say “oh it’s a ghost there’s nothing we can do” right that’s why it’s important to just don’t stop thinking at “oh it’s paranormal” because often times there is a very normal explanation otherwise again ghosts would have been proven by science by now and of course if you’re interested in real answers rather than just validating your beliefs then it’s also very important sometimes you can think that you’ve got some good evidence while really it’s just something that can be explained in a normal way so it’s very important to question evidence and try to debunk it so let’s look at some of the alternative explanations for our ghost sightings we are poor observers us humans I’ve pointed out countless times we are prone to see patterns in things objects that looked like faces background sounds that sound like voices it’s pareidolia that is going to be the explanation for a lot of paranormal experiences not only that we are also affected by a variety of different biases that change how we interpret information this constantly happens in our daily life so again why would the paranormal be any different and our memory isn’t that reliable either you may think you know what happened but chances are high that you actually don’t false memories many studies have been done that verify this humans do not store memories accurately i’ll give you an example let’s say that you had an experience where the door in your house simply slammed and you know you’re surprised what the hell is happening why did that door just slam and you know maybe you already believe in ghosts your first thought is maybe it’s a ghost so then you go tell that story to someone else and they ask you something to ask you well “was there any wind” and most likely your answer will be no because you just don’t remember any wind so now you have modified that memory of that experience but you were in the other room and that happened and when you want to open the door back up you didn’t remember any wind does that mean that there was no wind no chances are high that there really was wind that slammed the door maybe when you want to check you didn’t notice it or maybe there really was no wind at that time but because you didn’t feel wind or you didn’t pay attention to it you will now think that there was no wind and the next time you tell a story you’ll add to it and you’ll say “and there was no wind” maybe not the best example but you know I’m trying to make it relatable this happens every day to everybody memories get modified and it’s no different for a paranormal experience or something that has a big impact on your life or something just everyday right most of your memories are actually not real memories and we can prove that these are just some of the reasons that there are so many paranormal experiences while there’s just no proof whatsoever that we’ve also got environmental factors like CO infrasound moving sound from a distance mold that can induce hallucinations and you know the list goes on and on these are just some of the reasons that we can’t believe in ghosts based on faith or perceived experience it would be irrational i’m not saying dismiss ghosts entirely it’s always important to keep an open mind but I am saying be more skeptical when someone claims to have seen a ghost because there’s this whole culture starting up around paranormal and ghost but there’s just no evidence still it’s a rabbit hole once you start believing some of it you’ll start believing more and more and more and more of any claims that fit within your current world view that’s already not supported by evidence and that includes the tons of fake ghost videos here on YouTube as well and before you know it bam you’re at the point of no return you accept goes and conspiracies and whatever else that seems to fit with the way you think as reality meanwhile there is still no scientific evidence to verify it so the only way to prevent that is keep an open mind but think critically and be aware of these things may be ghosts exist and maybe they don’t but until there is scientific evidence there is no way to say for certain all we can say is that there’s a lot of misconceptions a lot of Lies and fakery a lot of false evidence
