Why are people so easily fooled by the pseudoscience regarding ghost hutning and the paranormal? It just baffles me to no end.
I recently watched a film about the paranormal called, the Conjuring. It was a good film, quite a few scares, but some parts rubbed me the wrong way. It made it clear that they wanted to impress upon those who watch it that it's a fact that ghosts are real. Sadly, I think many people fall for this too easily. Especially with all of the ghost hunting reality TV nonsense out there. On th imdb message board for this film, I expressed my concern, which of course led to many replies of anger and attempts to show that ghosts were real. I'm not a scientist or a writer or anything, but I refuted the arguments to the best of my ability.
Here is a link to the messageboard: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1457767/board/thread/221253267?d=221294557#221294557
Does anyone have a link they could share showing strong evidence that the equipment used by paranormal investigators(pseudoscience peddlers), showing that it is unscientific. Anything that anyone can find debunking this whole ghost hunting thing would be helpful.
Normally as a policy I don't engage in this whole forum war thing, but I wanted to see if I could successfully raise the awareness of people who believe in ghosts.
