Any of you who have been following this blog for any amount of time knows that we generally do not turn our attention very often to the investigative side of the paranormal. Each of us who is a contributor to this blog has a different view on investigations, but I thought this story was too good to pass up, considering the one thing non-believers (who are very different from skeptics) always want is a scientific explanation for that which we cannot explain. When one is offered, though, apparently it is the wrong one. I also note that the author of this article is not a physicist.
Every night, amateur ghost-hunting groups across the country head out into abandoned warehouses, old buildings and cemeteries to look for ghosts. They often bring along electronic equipment that they believe helps them locate ghostly energy.
Despite years of efforts by ghost hunters on TV and in real life, we still do not have good proof that ghosts are real. Many ghost hunters believe that strong support for the existence of ghosts can be found in modern physics. Specifically, that Albert Einstein, one of the greatest scientific minds of all time, offered a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts.
