We don’t believe in no ghosts! (do we?)

30 Oct

On this eve of Halloween 2013, we at Light in the Dark Paranormal would like to acknowledge both the believers and the skeptics.  There are still more who don’t believe in the reality of paranormal phenomena than those who do, but we suspect that most of the non-believers have never had a convincing supernatural experience.  Many who have don’t like to admit it.  But for those who have come out of the dark closet, bully for you!  Here are some interesting stats from one who has studied the issue…

Claude Fischer, a professor of sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, explored Americans’ persisting beliefs in some supernatural phenomena in a recent blog post.

“As we approach Halloween, note that most American adults in the 21st Century say that they believe in life after death and in the devil,” Fischer wrote, citing data from Gallup and other sources. “Over one-third say that they believe in the spirits of the dead coming back; about that many also say they believe in haunted houses.”

      Thanks for the comment. Yours also shows a degree of literacy not often found in this realm. Paranormal investigation is still more of an art than science, in spite of all the technology.
