What You Sense Is Evidence

There are many theories how ghosts can exist, but none of them can be scientifically proven in a controlled environment. This makes sense. If you’ve ever had a paranormal experience there is nothing controlled about it. I think that’s what scares people the most, the fact that they are not in control. Something that cannot be proven to exist has made its presence known to you. You sense it, your body reacts to it, strong emotions run through you and instinct tells you that “something” is there. If you sense someone is behind you, it doesn’t mean they don’t exist until you turn around and see them. Your senses tell you they are there before you see them. That is your evidence. I’m not saying don’t look for logical explanations. I’m saying this is  a logical explanation.

There may be denial that the paranormal exists, but there is no denial that people believe they have experienced it. Scientists conclude that paranormal activity is unlikely possible because it violates current known laws of nature (physical and scientific law). When certain conditions are present, phenomena can be explained by repeated testing and analysis with predicted results. However, nature is often unpredictable and does not always conform to expected patterns and results.

Evidence that has not been produced in a laboratory has been produced by personal experiences for over a thousand years. Those who’ve had a paranormal experience personally know it. Those who’ve not, want evidence from an impersonal source (testing and analysis).

A paranormal experience is emotional and difficult to recreate using current technology. How do scientists recreate the people, emotions, environment, and events that take place during a specific moment in time? Is it ethical and moral to do so? How is the effect it has on the surrounding environment and people who come into contact with it tested? Until scientists can create the cause and effect of paranormal activity, many people will continue to rely on their senses and personal experience as evidence.
