Why is there so much competition in the paranormal community? In a community that is so scrutinized by so many outsiders, you would think that we, as a community would pull together and stand behind each other. Instead we have paranormal investigators bad mouthing each other and their evidence. We have groups out there claiming that they want to help people, but at the same time they are charging them to come out and do an investigation. This is not a field where you should be trying to make money.
We have groups out there that think just because they saw an episode of “Ghost Hunters”, they can do this too. They do not know what they are doing. They think because they watched it done on TV that they can do it too. Do some research first. We have people out their vandalizing properties, and trespassing. This makes it much more difficult for the real investigators who are actually trying to research something.
We are supposed to be here for answers. We are supposed to be here to help people understand the paranormal. We need to be embracing the thoughts and advice of others. Are we not able to take a little constructive criticism without freaking out? We are criticised by many people on a daily basis. We need to take some of the more seasoned investigators words and think about what they say. Some people are truely there to help. Myabe they might see something in our evidence that we do not. Let’s not totally dismiss another persons’ evidence. We should be working together to try and figure out what it is.
Get off your high horses and help others out! Do not put them down and totally tear apart somthing they believe to be evidence. Remember the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. It’s simple people, grow up! I have been in a room full of elementary students that were more mature than some of the paranormal groups I have come across.
These people know who they are. They are the same ones who feel it necessary to bad mouth a group over Facebook. I am amazed that some of us have really stooped th this level.
Let the scientists and non-believers be the ones who call us crazy and feel the need to bad-mouth us. Stop the insanity within our community. Let there be unity in the paranormal community.
