Well I have noticed a massive increase in the number of these groups setting up mainly on Facebook and on YouTube. My interest in the subject will never die and I feel myself being sucked into joining these groups just to watch what they do. It fascinates me no end. But can anyone give me a brutal answer to the question as to why I as a definite sceptic (I really do not believe in ghosts and I want evidence before I believe in anything) have suddenly become so interested in these somewhat amateur investigations.
There was one person who lets say was friends with a few of these 'investigators' but he wanted to do everything in a truely scientific manner. I found the man fascinating, but basically in the circles he (well and me now to an extent I guess) were moving in, he didn't last a couple of weeks. No one except me and around 10 other people could be bothered with him. Anyway he's gone!
Wanting to find proof of some sort of afterlife which I do and actually believing there could be are miles apart. I wonder if there are more people out there who don't believe but follow others out there who do believe and search for evidence. I must admit to being interested in psychology and sociology to some extent. I follow 'chats' with complete and utter sheep who believe all they hear and see. But what is in my own psychology, I would love to be a believer but I don't (fullstop)!! I'm hoping its just a stage I'm going through
Anyway, hope this is not too out of place here, but ages since there was a discussion on mindset of believers and non-believers and fools like me who watch with great interest but don't believe. Maybe its an age thing as I get older I get more sceptical but then since my mum died part of me definitely would love to believe and perhaps thats just it, and an example of how maybe grieving people are drawn to mediums and psychics (which by the way I am not, thank goodness!!) Really would love to hear other people think of this.
