I receive a lot of questions via email pertaining to people sharing their paranormal experiences and looking for my interpretation on their situation. I would guesstimate that four out of 5 emails that I receive are related to orbs. I have discussed orbs in the past in various blog posts, but I thought that it would be beneficial to create a detailed blog entry on orbs that I can refer people to when they email me with photos and videos of orbs, believing that they may be paranormal in nature due to wide spread misinformation which is even propagated by many people involved with the paranormal community including but not limited to ghost hunters, paranormal investigators, paranormal enthusiasts, online video channels, theatrical movies, and televised paranormal programming.
When you watch paranormal investigation television shows you may have noticed that the extreme majority of investigations or ghost hunts are completed at night. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Today’s blog entry is part two of a two part series where we will discuss this phenomenon. On part one we discussed how many paranormal investigations, ghost hunts, ghost tours, and paranormal themed televisions shows are done at night simply for the spooky factor as not all groups use a level of science that would cause you to choose to engage in paranormal related activities at night for scientific purposes. We also discussed how sometimes it is due to scheduling necessities due to the investigators or clients working during the day. Today we will discuss the science component and reasons for conducting paranormal investigations in the evening. Some of what is explored here is pulled from previous blog posts and podcasts that I have authored so some of this you may have read or heard before if you follow my blog or podcast.
vercome stereotypes, an experience I had with paranormal television shows, and how to present your team on the internet in a professional way so that your team doesn’t get balled up and thrown into the box with paranormal stereotypes.

Today I will discuss some of these stereotypes and what you can do when they arise and to help prevent them from being associated with you, allowing you to rise above the stereotypes. This is part one of a two part series.
This is the second post in a series of posts regarding human behavioral tendencies that you will contend with during your paranormal investigative career. During a science based investigation it is imperative to be cognizant of human behavioral tendencies including yours as the investigator, your colleagues, and the clients. Today we discuss the Dunning-Kruger Effect In Paranormal Investigations.
