Suspected Paranormal Events Captured on Camera
The paranormal has become quite a popular subject these days and while science overall doesn't recognize the paranormal, many people do. The belief in spirits of the dead is nothing new, it has been around for thousands of years now. Many people believe that spirits are either people that were once alive and are now dead or they are some form of demons.
While skeptics claim there is no evidence that the dead continue in another form, people who have had a paranormal experience claim that it is hard not to believe once you experience such an event.
Science in some ways is actually blind to certain things, it is unfortunate but science as a whole has a closed mind. The problem with science is the foundation is based on what is known, but science has a long way to go before it can explain many things in our world. It has more questions than answers.
Not too long ago the world was considered flat and our Earth was the center of the universe. To say otherwise could mean your death. For most people, seeing is believing. The following footage is paranormal events that have been captured on camera and shown on mainstream media.
Incredible Ghost Baffles Experts in Tantallon Castle in Fife
was captured in a castle in Scotland. Experts are Baffled by it. The
scary shot was unearthed during the biggest ever investigation into
photographic evidence of ghosts.
The picture, taken in May last
year, shows a spectral figure in fifteenth century dress peering out of a
barred window at Tantallon Castle in Fife. The figure appears
to be in period costume, but we know 100 per cent that Tantallon Castle
is not the sort of place that has dummies or costumed guides; they just
dont go in for that sort of thing.
I suppose it could be a
visitor looking a little bit strange. Perhaps someone will come forward.
Another possibility is an odd reflection of sunlight, but it does look
very like a person. The explanation is not obvious?
Castle, a ruined fortress dating back to the 14th century, stands on a
remote rocky headland near North Berwick on the East coast of Scotland.
It was badly damaged in an attack by Oliver Cromwells forces in 1651.
Christopher Aitchison, who took the photo, said: "I was not aware of anyone, or anything, being present in my picture." Psychologist

studies of the supernatural, launched the investigation a month ago.

Spooky! Haunting Photo Baffles Ghost Busters

We think it's interesting; we don't think Asheville High school is haunted and we don't want parents or students to be alarmed.

"You can definitely rule out lighting there because you can see the movement and the shadow and the mist and it definitely came to form."
