Seeing Repeating Numbers: What Do They Mean?

Deutsch: Schild der Landesstraße 111 in Österreich

We here at TPB love to examine paranormal and spiritual phenomenon and we've been looking into the phenomenon of seeing repeating numbers. We were surprise to learn through our research just how many people seem to have this  occur in their daily lives. For instance one of our writers sees the number 44 or 444 randomly on any given day and in many cases multiple times a day. Usually preceding something of importance. It has often been noticed around certain events and actions that are worth paying attention to.

Many mediums that study numerology say repeating numbers are messages. For instances 44 or 444 seem to mean Angels are watching over you and are around you.  Other repeating numbers mean different things to different people.
So our question to our readers are, Do you see repeating numbers every day, everywhere you go and do they hold any meaning for you?



The key thing worth bearing in mind is this is a highly effective way to get your attention is it not?  Some people see many numbers that repeat, such as 555,333,111 etc. If you give it some thought, what better way to get you to start paying attention, learning and opening up to your spiritual side?

American Ghost Hunter Review

Paranormal State & AGH Tour
Paranormal State & AGH Tour (Photo credit: southerntabitha)
We are fortunate here at The Paranormal Blog to have readers submit a wide variety of personal stories and insights. Today we have a wonderful movie review from our reader Wendy. Enjoy!

I thought your blog readers would be interested in a review of Chad Calek's "American Ghost Hunter" documentary. As you know, Chad made several appearances on the reality show "Paranormal State." I always thought Chad was the comic relief of the group, but I also noticed more activity would happen around him, just as it would Ryan (Buell). This led me to believe Chad, as well as Ryan, had either had experiences before, or was a beacon or empath. I was on Twitter one day and noticed that Chad had a Tweet that related to the documentary "American Ghost Hunter", stating he directed it as well as starred in it along side Ryan as a guest appearing in the film. I did not know, however, that this was an auto biographical piece for Chad. I'm going to try not to spoil any of the film but it will be hard because you learn so much about what Chad went through. Ryan also finally discloses the events of his experience as a child and how it affected his relationship with his mother.
There are two ways to watch the documentary; you can purchase the DVDs, or watch it PPV by subscribing to the film for 24 hours. To do either, you go to the link at the bottom of this review, create an account, and continue with your purchase choice. Myself, I am very much without patience so I decided to go for the PPV option. Within a couple of minutes, I was watching the film on my iPad.
I was mesmerized the entire time. Chad really shows raw emotion in this film; he lets the viewer see how affected he was by his experiences. His experiences did lead him to becoming a ghost hunter, perhaps to get more answers, but even if he had decided to become a chef, nothing could take away from the brilliance of his direction. The close ups, the unusual camera angles as you hear voice over commentary, it's all done exceptionally well.
When the film is over, you feel like you went on a journey with Chad. You are spent and a little speechless. I remember saying "Wow" when it was over. I think I was asleep within the hour because I was exhausted. Chad is definitely a talented director and I can't wait to watch more of what he's done, and I'm looking forward to what he will do in the future. I think if anyone is going to crack the code of life after death, good versus evil, etc., it will be Chad.

UFO or ?

Ok it has been awhile since we've written anything regarding UFO's. However, it's a topic we love to read about and we certainly love personal stories whenever we can find them and that includes our own. In the Southeast US stormy skies were prevalent yesterday and so ever bearing my Fuji digital I decided to take a few pics of the ominous sky and the shots were quite lovely in color. However, once uploaded the last photograph contained an image that I did not see in my ten to fifteen minutes of staring at the sky taking photos. I am not sure what this image is, but I did submit to google images to see if there were any like images floating around and there were few so I decided to post the photos here and hope to get feedback from the smartest group of people I know, our readers. Here goes:

Letters from our Readers: Sleep Paralysis and Negative Entities

The Nightmare

This letter was recently received by a reader of That Paranormal Blog and they have allowed us to share it with the rest of you. They are hoping to gleam some insights, suggestions and advice from anyone out there that can give it.
We will not publish the name or email of the reader out of respect for their privacy, however if you have any messages or advice please leave it in the comment section of this post and we will make sure they get it. Here's the letter in its complete and unaltered form, along with their youtube video link.


Hi there.

I recently had sleep paralysis for the first time and witnessed some kind of ominous dark shadow figure at the end of my bed. It just stood there watching me, and even though it was hard to make out exactly what it was, I could feel and sense with all of my being that it had nothing but evil intentions. it was the most terrifying experience of my life. All I wanted to do was get up and scream to get it away from me, but I couldn't say a word and I had no control over my muscles. My breathing was very shallow and tight. I was completely paralysed. I wasn't sure if I was dreaming or not, it seemed so real, but I was very confused and startled.
 I'm a rationalist and a very skeptical person with no previous interest in paranormal activity, but after doing some research it seemed like there was a possibility that this entity is real. So many other people from all over the world report seeing the same thing and have had very similar experiences.

So I decided to set up my video camera and leave it running whilst I slept. I really didn't expect to find anything. It was more for peace of mind as I was still very shaken up by the experience and was finding it difficult to get to sleep with the fear of having this experience again. After scanning through the footage it seemed like there was nothing out of the ordinary, but I decided to have a look at the audio signal. I noticed a little raise in the audio graph a few hours into the filming so I looked at that part of the video. My heart stopped when I observed what seemed to be some kind of ghost or entity evaporate above my bed.

I have watched the footage over and over trying to figure out some logical explanation for what could have caused the image of what seems to be a ghost, but I haven't been able to come up with a solution. I am really starting to believe that I captured the entity I saw during my paralysis on video. This terrifies me so much that I can no longer sleep in my room. I have slept in my friends room since it has happened as sleeping alone is just too scary for me to deal with right now.

Here is the video. You are welcome to use it if you like, and I'd be interested to hear your take on it.

Thanks!

Ok readers, this is the link to the video, feel free to comment and let us know what you think.

Loch Ness Monster, Alive or Dead or Never Existed?

Loch Ness from Fort Augustus  Scotland
Loch Ness from Fort Augustus Scotland (Photo credit: conner395)
Ok first and foremost, to ask this question, suggests you must believe that "Nessy" exists to begin with, but I feel its a valid question to all those that love anything odd/paranormal especially when it has been a mystery since the 1930's and beyond. I would go into the back story of the famous Loch Ness Monster but chances are many of you readers have a working knowledge of the story already. So we like to just dive right in and examine the questions around the existence instead.


Recently we watched a documentary on the ever elusive Loch Ness Monster and learned that the reported sightings have gone down significantly in recent years, prompting the title of this post. Some allege that "Nessy" is no more, while others insist that while the creature could have died, there is every reason to assume there are others lurking about in the depths of Loch Ness. Some reports indicate that there are not one but several, and a few witnesses claim to have seen 1 larger creature in the company or one or two smaller ones, thereby suggesting they have reproduced and had offspring. If this were the case, wouldn't the sightings have increased?


The bottom line is, aside from eye witness reports that have been around for a long long time and extremely grainy film footage that have no comparable objects to even ascertain size, there have been no conclusive reports, no definitive evidence, that this creature has ever existed, unless you accept the Plesiosaurus theory. The other pesky problem is food. A large creature needs it, a lot of it. Does the Loch have enough of a food source to sustain not only one creatures livelihood, but several?

Author and artist C. Keith Carpenter has recently published his new paranormal novel, “The Ghosts of Emily Gray.”

The story follows Erin, the surviving identical twin of Emily who was tragically killed exactly one year ago.

Multiple apparitions of the dead teen simultaneously haunt the family while Erin tries to cope with the guilt of Emily’s death, haunting visions, a jilted ex-boyfriend who taps into supernatural forces to enact revenge, and a family that is quickly disintegrating.

Having made a break with the occult underworld, Erin struggles with her own identity as a person while dating the high school football star who is very different from her.

Carpenter writes a smart, riveting, and fantastic story with well-rounded characters and many twists and turns. He is a graphic designer and copywriter whose spare time is also devoted to creating a very popular fine art series titled Alterniverse: The Urth Chronicles.

Settle in for the night and immerse yourself into the nightmare. It is a book you won’t be able to put down until it is finished cover to cover. Sleeping afterwards, however, may be a difficult task.

The novel is available online and at other locations which are listed on the website www.GhostsOfEmilyGray.com

Rick Dyer: Did he really kill Bigfoot?

Breaking News Rick Dyers Tent Video Has Hit Th...
Breaking News Rick Dyers Tent Video Has Hit The NEWS!! (Photo credit: Racer X9)




Many of you may recall when the news hit the pipelines about San Antonio hunter Rick Dyer and his proclamation that he shot and killed a Bigfoot. Dyer stated that he killed the supposed creature between Loop 1604 and Highway 151 in September of 2012.

According to Dyer he is not remorseful in the least over the killing and is set to tour the US with the "stuffed" corpse of BigFoot. Dyer stated that Bigfoot is "real" and that extensive tests have been conducted on the corpse. Dyer also said the world would know he is the best Sasquatch tracker in the world. Dyer also said that the tests conducted were everything from DNA to 3D optical tests.

Dyer also provided a grainy cell phone video of "Bigfoot" outside of his tent showing interest in pork ribs that were nailed to a tree for bait. That being said, many experts in related fields of study have called into question not only Dyers claims but his legitimacy entire. Many reports state that in 2008 Dyer was involved with a Bigfoot hoax, and as such those who have commented on  his claims do not lend any real credence to his September 2012 story.

The sad part about this story is the fact that the hunter Dyer said that he had no regrets to shooting and killing this beast. If you assume he is telling the truth about killing Sasquatch, one has to wonder what kind of person is proud to have killed the elusive being? We would guess it is the same person that would be happy to take the corpse on tour to brag about it to the world. We at TPB hope this is all just another hoax by Dyer. It is far less bothersome than to believe someone could kill something so close to being human as to brag about it..

For those Bigfoot enthusiasts, you'll be interested to know there will be a new Bigfoot hunter-type show airing soon. This newest show claims to be different from other shows that are
The show, "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" is set to air on Spike TV January 10, 2014.

Maybe we're slow...but whats the deal with Bigfoots foot?

English: Footprint on earth... Photograph from Maldives (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Ok its been awhile since we've posted anything on the site, apologies, there are a lot of things going on elsewhere so hope you guys have stuck around. We've been thinking on the issue of Bigfoot's foot for sometime now and this has plagued our brains considerably. So with that being said, we thought we'd throw this out to the smartest people we know, our readers,, yeah you..and ask you what your thoughts are, so here it goes..



Why is it that there is only one foot print of Bigfoot? I know someone out there will say there are multiple casts of both the left and right foot but where are they so we can go look?
It seems every time a "print" is found it is only one, which begs the question, is Bigfoot really "bi-pedal" afterall? We're beginning to wonder. You can go where one man has been and if he is barefoot in that area, you will more than likely see more than one foot print..why isn't this the case where bigfoot prints are located?
Another thing we have noticed is how perfectly formed the foot is, the toes in most seem to be all perfectly lined up, there's usually no wonky shapes....don't some of you think the foot print is a little too perfect most of the time?  If we were to look at our own footprints in the mud, or sand, we'd surely see some wonky prints some of the time. Maybe a big gap between poppa bear toe and the second toe, maybe the second toe is longer than the big toe, or the little toe is weird..at any rate, we just can't seem to find one that is unique looking, and when one is produced, it is sooooo unique looking that it looks like it isnt a bigfoot print at all.
What say you all?

Sylvia Browne Passes Away at 77

Sylvia Browne
DSC05070 (Photo credit: shazam791)
We decided not to rehash what can be easily found on the web about the details of where she passed and the like. What TPB has decided would be more interesting now is to discuss the medium and her legacy. Its about opening up and having a discussion.
Sylvia Browne perhaps was best known for her books and appearances on television, most notably the Montel Williams show. Montel seemed to place a great deal of faith into her gifts and you clearly got that sense of it when you watched her on his show. Browne was also quite controversial at times and did have quite a few well noted inaccuracies in her predictions. While no psychic can be completely right all the time, one does have to be very very careful when they reach great heights in fame to not let the ego cloud the vision, which may have been in part the problem with Sylvia Browne.
Her most wildly reported snafus were when she told the mother  of  kidnapping victim Amanda Berry that her daughter was not alive, when in fact the kidnapping victim was very much alive and found a decade later still with her captor. Additionally she told the parents of  young Shawn Hornbeck that their son was no longer alive and that his abductor was a dark male with dred locks. Shawn Hornbeck was in fact alive and his captor was caucasian.
While the public can accept that the gifts of psychics are not always accurate, one has to wonder at the same time, if it is a good idea to make sure "definitive" statements about death when speaking to desperate and pain ridden loved ones publicly or privately.  We have no actual data that can accurately predict Brownes true success rate, however many other well known mediums have been out spoken in her defense. What say you? Our readers, was she legit?

Alien Theories and Discussions

Alien
Alien (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
We've been studying Alien related topics for some time now and we love it when we all get in on the conversation. One thing we'd like to ponder today is a few Alien theories. We as humans tend to rationalize and explain everything we think, feel and believe in based on a certain set of human experiences and guidelines. We are completely handicapped by this in many ways. Its like trying to figure out the universe, based on an episode of the Brady Bunch isn't it? In short we only know what we know, the rest we can only look at based on educated guesses.

That being said, have you ever wondered why, if aliens do exist, why they don't just make their existence known world wide, all at once? Even remotely? From a safe distance? Could there be a viable reason? Most certainly there is...but what is it? Here's where theory comes into play, that is one thing we humans have no shortage of..Most of us agree, that alien intelligence would be superior to our own. This is why we have more theories than accessible evidence but that is ok, it's a start, right? Assuming they are far superior to us, can we then assume their reason for not blatantly making their existence known has to do with an understanding of human nature? Many believe they have been visiting our little blue marble for a long long time, and certainly they know we are not  a friendly species although we like to think we are. They may have actually fostered many ideas and inspirations man has had.

Man has repeatedly throughout history brutalized his own species, and most living entities on this planet. Has he evolved into a higher state of being, a less violent creature through out time? Honestly? No. We've managed to create weapons that can wipe out an entire country, we can manipulate bio chemicals to destroy life as we know it..so are we a kinder gentler species now? Far from it, if anything our growth and greed have made us more violent and more dangerous. We would like to believe we are different, we read history books and scoff at our own brutal past as if we've come so far but we've only made progress in our ability to deny our true nature.

So we can probably assume that aliens know we are violent and not to be trusted as a species, we likely appear quite primitive to them. We may be able to assume with some degree accurately that if they wanted to destroy us they would have done so by now. Mankind for them may simply be an experiment that they have been studying since the beginning. The randomness of their appearances world wide may also be very deliberate. Could they be simply leading us to them? Instead of them coming to us? Why lead us? That could take a long time at this pace, but perhaps that time is needed. We are far from knowing what is best for ourselves. We are but toddlers in a large play pen. Could this slow process between mankind and aliens meeting face to face, have to take this slow process simply because we just aren't ready yet?

Pyramids: Human Ingenuity or Alien Design?

All Giza Pyramids in one shot. Русский: Все пи...
All Giza Pyramids in one shot. Русский: Все пирамиды Гизы на изображении. Español: Las Pirámides de Guiza (Egipto). Français : Les Pyramides de Gizeh (Egypte). Català: Les Piràmides de Giza, a Egipte. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
You know we've done a lot of posts about ghosts, and other creatures but today we're going to talk about the pyramids around the globe. We  love interacting with our readers so we'd love to have anyone weigh in their thoughts with regards to pyramids.

First let us say, no doubt mankind has created some impressive architectural wonders throughout our existence, but we've few to compare our work to. We might in  some cases be giving the creatures of our planet a less than favorable/fair review? Ants, termites, and birds come up with amazing structures of their own and when we consider they work with a far less advanced brain...well you get where we're coming from..
This leads us to the pyramids which have been found all over the world. They've been quite a mystery to modern day man, and seem to hold more questions than answered. Some are more sophisticated than others but they all seem to have structural purposes that leave man scratching his head.

Spirit Contact: Are we intruding and bothering the spirit world?


We've heard from time to time from mediums that some ghosts are tired of the constant attempts to communicate with them and we have to wonder if this may be true in some cases? In some instances the spirit world may be happy to know that someone is acknowledging them and may have messages of value to impart, but how about others? For instance, the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast in Fall River Massachusetts has been deluged with investigators, psychics, and every quija board carrying ghost enthusiast imaginable.
Lizzie Borden House (Bed/Breakfast)

No doubt hundreds have come to that place to find evidence of spirit activity and existence. So whatever happened to "Rest in Peace" and does it irritate the spirits in this B&B? Psychic Amy Allen alleged so in an episode of the Dead Files, and it is worth considering. So what say our readers? Do you think the spirits are bothered with the constant investigations, the constant demands to "touch someone" or "make a sound" or ? Please weigh in..

Paranormal States Ryan Buell Latest Tweet Update

For those that love Ryan Buell as much as TPB does, we saw this via facebook and knew we had to share this with all of you. There has been tremendous interest, love and concern for the Paranormal State Star and many of you have not only expressed love and support but concern and interest in his life and how he is doing, and what he is doing. We  hope you take the time to read:

Announcement:
Paranormal State & AGH Tour
Hey guys, I posted this via Twitter but thought I'd share here... You know, it's been two years since our last "new" episode of PS. And as you also know, I've had to take quite a lot of time off the past year-and-a-half. I haven't been in a place, health-wise, where I could even consider returning to TV or doing any major projects until now. I spent some time this summer taking meetings in LA and in NYC to see if there was any interest in me returning to TV, and to my surprise, there was/is a ton of interest. Most of them said the same thing, "we're ready to work with you, just keep focusing on your health and getting better, we are here, ready when you are." I asked you guys, back in May and July, how you felt about me/PRS returning to TV, and literally HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of you responded. Some of you may say, "well duh, what did u expect us to say? No?" To he honest, I didn't know what to expect. I've had to drop the things I was most passionate about in order to focus on my health. And two years is a long time. Perhaps there wouldn't be any interest. But I've been told by many, from old producers to agents, that our show, "Paranormal State," continues to do well in reruns. And our fan numbers keep growing. You want to know how I feel? I feel blessed. And sometimes, I feel I don't deserve it. You guys have been so supportive, through the ups and downs. And health-wise, it's true that I still have a long battle ahead, despite the battles I've won against this disease. But what's the point of living & fighting if you have nothing to LIVE for? Whether I ultimately like it or not, paranormal investigation is my life's work. I was doing it before a show and I'll keep doing it, with or without a show. PS is genuine because we really care about the work. And so, when it comes to returning to TV, I also wanted to make sure I had a good reason for doing so. And it needs to be the right time. Right now is that time. It's as good as it will ever be. And I want to do it again, because I'm older, (arguably) wiser and have more to offer, hopefully. We changed the world once already, and we can do it again. To come back with something different & once again groundbreaking! Other things are different also. We're building a new team, we have new goals and resources that I've kept very close to the chest, that only Serg, Eilfie and Chris know about, because we wanted to wait for the right time. So, I am ready to return and I've made the decision to once again be open to having a TV crew document our/my lives and our search for the unknown. So, where are we with that? Well, I've been dropping some hints here and there. If you're attentive, you'll be able to piece the clues together. Bottom line is, we're about to make a come back. And I have faith that you all will love what we are developing. B/C that's just as important to me. So there you have it. Yes, we are making the jump to return to TV. And soon I'll finally be able to reveal more than just a tease! My suggestion? Dust off those DVD's, keep watching our Twitters, website & Facebooks for info and most of all: get ready!

Fairies: Real or Insects?

Fairy image
Fairy?

It has come to our attention that there are a lot of people in society today that actually believe in fairies, and many claim to have either seen them or have photographs of them. We've seen some of the photos, and of those photos there are some that are pretty interesting while others look like insects and/or flying grasshoppers-moths. If you ask the photographer "How do you know this isn't a flying insect?" you usually will get this reply or some derivative of it, such as "You just know.." which speaks more to an intuitive knowledge over any factual one. TPB does give individual "intuition" credence as well.
However, that is hard for the average "Joe" to swallow. Fairies do have some history behind them to support their existence. There were, in fact a small race of people known as the Thuathe de Danaan in Ireland. Such small framed people were known to exist in Europe, the British Isles and in the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
Some believe fairies are nature spirits that live in wooded areas, near lakes and  streams etc. Fairies are believed to be Pagan and also are touted to have advanced psychic senses but are shy and reclusive in nature.
Like most things that man is intrigued by, some say no such existence can be accepted until indisputable evidence can be offered.
The problem with this is that there is no such thing as indisputable evidence, as all evidence can be disputed.  With that being said, still, great photos are always elusive and finding someone brave enough to authenticate them even more challenging. After all, with all of todays digital advancements, one can create almost anything, and say this is proof. For those that belief no evidence is needed, for those that don't no evidence is enough.TPB says, what harm is there in believing? What say you?

Astrology, Astronomy and Horoscopes Oh My...

Ok today we had a question posted on facebook that just begged for debate. Now truth be told if you believe in the paranormal, and you're reading this, we're likely preaching to the choir but at the same time, it was an interesting thread. Some religions believe Astrology, is evil, and goes against the wishes of God.

Now depending where you go and what you read you will get varying answers that are supposedly in the bible..however those that tell us what the bible says regarding astrology are putting a certain spin on things that most may not even know of.

For instance, I never  thought of astrology as being a tool of divination. In simpler terms I never believed its purpose was to be used to predict any future events. However, aside from that I do wonder, if it isn't a tool of understanding of ourselves, our true nature before the world gets its hands on us and changes what was meant to be.

According to gotquestions.org God placed stars in the sky for man to use to navigate and keep track of time. Here's where it gets interesting, according to this site, and I quote:

    The Bible says that stars, along with the sun and moon, were given for “signs” and “seasons” (Genesis 1:14); that is, they were meant to mark time for us. They are also “signs” in the sense of navigational “indicators,” and all through history men have used the stars to chart their courses around the globe.

 Ok, now here is what is actually in the Bible:

    And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so.

Now if you see there is a difference between the two, one is actually from the bible and the other is the authors interpretation of what it meant. See the difference?
"that is, they were meant to mark time for us."

 Here is the problem, this happens a lot with man..he decides to make what is, fit with what isn't..and vice versa. The truth is, this is the authors "spin" on what the actual Bible says. For the reader, lets say  someone who is reading the Bible and not relying on someones interpretations ie: priest, preacher...what do you think they would gleam from this sentence? For me, when I read it, what I see is it says the Heavenly bodies are there to help man, that he may look to them to help with time and signs. Since it is not clear what is truly meant by the word 'signs' are we not left to interpret that for ourselves?

Again on this same site, you will see where  the author of the post writes:

    "Astrology is the “interpretation” of an assumed influence the stars (and planets) exert on human destiny."

Now the most common definition we found :


    The study of the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the course of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs.

One says it is a study based on positions and aspects of celestial bodies  and how they may influence the course of natural earthy occurrences (which is a fact) and human affairs,  the other says it is an interpretation based on an assumption that stars and planets can influence human destiny. Whats the differences, the first description sounds a lot more like "divination." Why ? Because it fits with the authors overall assertion that it is against God's wishes.

However if we look at the actual definition, it doesn't sound like a tool for divination but an actual study based on what we do know. We do know that the position of the moon, and sun affect all of life on the planet. It is natural to assume these bodies also have an impact on man as well.

While some may want to believe or use astrology for a tool of divination, its up to the individual. However to assume anyone studying or believing in the logic behind the definition is somehow anti-God is ridiculous. Those planets were placed in the sky for a reason. Since there is not a lot of mention of other planets besides the sun, moon and stars, we have to assume that astrology is not fairly covered nor represented fully.

Let us remember that only a short time ago did man even know the earth was round, much less that there were other planets in the sky, and yet, they did have access to the bible. Since there is a great area that is not specifically addressed with reference to Astrology in its truest definition, why does man feel so compelled to try and explain what the bible says? At the same time God created them all. When the bible was written man was not aware of most of them that we today know of.

So what is your thoughts? Our brilliant readers? Is there some evil associated with studying planets and stars and how they may impact man and his life, his characteristics? What say you?

Oh for those that think there is a huge difference between Astrology and Astronomy, here's the definition and  I do say there is only a slight difference..
as·tron·o·my  (-strn-m)n. pl. as·tron·o·mies
1. The scientific study of matter in outer space, especially the positions, dimensions, distribution, motion, composition, energy, and evolution of celestial bodies and phenomena.  See Astronomy via: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/

Destination America's new show Mountain Monsters


If there is one paranormal show that is disturbing these days it is Destination America's 'Mountain Monsters'. The show documents Appalachian mountaineers that “investigate” various reports of creatures throughout the Appalachian mountain region. Recently the mountaineers were hunting down a creature called the “Wampus Beast” but have also gone after other creatures well. The name of the group of mountain monster investigators is called Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings, or AIMS.

At first glance, it seemed an amusing idea. Mountain men investigating sightings in the mountains may offer some comic relief, since many seem to be a colorful bunch of grand story tellers. What became bothersome about the show was how potentially dangerous and haphazard the men seemed to be. Every noise in the dark seemed to prompt the men to take aim with loaded rifles in whatever direction. With the use of traps and live bait the men attempt to lure these “creatures” but are also appear eager to shoot one if they think they are threatened.

It seems a reckless venture from all sides. None of the creatures they are investigating have ever harmed a human being, yet you hear “if it's big enough to kill a hog, it could kill a man...” and “if they are killing our livestock who's to say they won't kill a human or a small child.” Supposedly using that sort of logic is how they would justify killing one of these creatures. They could also argue their lives were threatened, however when you use bait and you seek them out from hiding you're assuming a certain risk. If these creatures are real, there is certainly no evidence to suggest they are any threat to humans.

Investigating these creatures, or obtaining evidence of their existence is a worthy endeavor under certain conditions, but to track them down with guns drawn in the dark seems an experiment in idiocy. Why do five or six men all need rifles just to investigate a creature? Personally they all look like idiots when any noise has them aiming blindly in the dark. God forbid someone walk up on these hillbillies in the dark. One thing I am impressed with and thankful for, these creatures all seem to be far wiser than their aggressors, they have to be, and so should we.

Dead Files: Hey Amy stop droppping the "F" bomb?

Time and time again we write about these shows on television and time and time again, we see psychics and investigators alike showing disrespect for the spirits. After all some of these spirits are children, some are from time long past etc. It is not necessary to use foul language in their presence and shows not only a lack of respect but a lack of professionalism. A psychic like Amy should know better than to be disrespectful of the dead. We've seen her all but scold homeowners that disrespect the dead, and then routinely use expletives around them with out any regard for their sensibilities. In short, you should not use or act any differently in the home of the dead than you would in the home of the living. Point blank.
