Ken Summers at Who Forted? recently published a thought-provoking article about the current state of paranormal investigation. He noted: "As the number of paranormal television shows increased, so did the number of viewers who – after a few episodes – suddenly became ghost [or demon...] hunters themselves... If you’re a devoted fan of (insert paranormal program here), that’s what you are: a fan, not an overnight expert..."

The internet is full of "experts" who "talk the talk" but as Greg Newkirk has pointed out, "They [usually] know nothing about the paranormal that you don’t, they’re just decent bulls**tters... [Many] are simply using the paranormal as a means to make up for the social status that they lack in everyday life. It’s easy to appear an important person in a field that requires no credentials..."

I am not an "expert." I am not a "demonologist." I am not an "exorcist." I am not a "demon hunter." I do not believe in demons/angels/gods/devils/magic. I am not a psychiatrist. I am skeptical of all paranormal claims without credible evidence. I do acknowledge that many things are "UNexplained."

Please be aware that if you make claims here about your expertise/demonologist powers/demon hunting prowess etc. you may be expected to provide evidence before your claims are accepted.

I would like to uphold what Jake posted.  But most importantly the following from his post:

I am skeptical of all paranormal claims without credible evidence. I do acknowledge that many things are "UNexplained."

Please be aware that if you make claims here about your expertise/demonologist powers/demon hunting prowess etc. you may be expected to provide evidence before your claims are accepted.
