A decade ago, most scholars claimed that about 50% of Americans believed in ghosts or related paranormal phenomena.
Since then, those numbers may have increased. Here’s the news story:
“Studies indicate that 75% of Americans believe in at least one of the supernatural phenomenon surveyed, and while scholars over the last century have been predicting that believes in things such as ghosts and hauntings would dissipate as a result of the increasing efficacy of science, technology, and education. That’s just not proven true at all,” said Sociology Professor, Dennis Waskul.
I wonder if the recent focus on “fake news” makes people less confident about supposedly reliable resources.
Left to trust their own instincts, perhaps some people realize that ghosts might be real, after all.
One intense encounter — or even an eerie experience — may be all it takes to tilt the scales from “skeptic” to “believer.”
Also in the news: Syfy may have cancelled Ghost Hunters, but other ghost-related shows continue to feature lesser-known haunts.
It’s smart to know what will be featured on TV, if you want to investigate a site before the energy is diluted by a fresh stream of eager, aspiring ghost hunters.
Here’s a former Ohio school that sounds interesting.
