Nobody asked me, but…

Although many people believe me to be an expert on paranormal phenomena, my explanations of what “is” and “isn’t” are subject to a myriad of opinions and opposing views. My principal drive in this blog is to provide a rational explanation for things that apparently have no explanation: Such things as ghosts, hauntings, UFOs, non-medical healing of “impossible to cure” medical situations, etc. Perhaps because I firmly believe that everything is explainable, I search and probe until a rational explanation appears. But, sometimes, things will happen that contradict the most rational explanations.

The photograph below was a picture taken in the moors of Yorkshire, England last week. When it comes to photos, I’m always suspicious of pictures that focus on a ghost or on a UFO because most ghosts and UFOs do not pose for the camera. But I can understand how someone driving through the moors of Yorkshire might want to stop and take photos of the beautiful scenery with a new, digital, camera. He would have no particular reason for having an image appear in his photo. He’s not associated with any paranormal groups…and the photo actually frightened him and his girlfriend who was with him when the photo was snapped. The image wasn’t there when he took the photo, but it appeared on his finished photo. Clearly it is a human form and the photo appears genuine.

Similarly, there have been an inordinately large number of photos taken of UFOs recently. There has been a significant upswing in the numbers of UFO reports identifying the UFOs as “lights in the sky”, “lights flying in formation” and even several “daylight” photos. Most of the photos were taken with camcorders or cell phones and are not particularly clear, but they are certainly indicative of something.

The problem with the UFO pictures is that with today’s software, it is possible to create almost any images you choose to create, and with Computer Generated Graphics, even videos can be made to show whatever the film editor wants it to show.

Notwithstanding the possibility or even probability that the above UFO photos are faked, the fact is that there has been such a spate of reports coming from around the world (UFO reports are not just from Roseville) that it seems strongly indicative that there is something out there. There have been more than two thousand UFO sightings in January and February 2009. Most of them over sparsely populated areas, but some of them over major cities.

As I said…nobody asked me.
