What is Paranormal?

August 5, 2013 in Blog, Clayton's Blog


What exactly is “Paranormal…” that’s what I thought to myself when I was first asked to join the Oddity Files crew.

The actual definition of paranormal is “of or pertaining to the claimed occurrence of an event or perception without scientific
explanation.” So in some sense, we, as paranormal investigators, are explorers, set out to find something that scientists haven’t yet
discovered. I was beyond excited to begin going on these investigations, one because I thought it would be interesting to visit these
historic places, such as the prison that John Dillinger escaped from, second and most importantly because I’m a skeptic… yes I don’t
really believe in whatever it is we are looking for.

I find it very hard to believe that I am going to round a corner and one of Casper’s friends will be taking a leisurely stroll down the
corridor of an old sanatorium. However after a few investigations I am getting a lot more intrigued with EVP’s. There’s just something
about reviewing footage and sound recordings and hearing “something” in the midst of you asking it questions. I’m not quite ready to say
that I believe in it, but let’s just say I’m warming up to the idea.
