Hi everyone!
I just wanted to share a link with you guys! It is an entry from the 'Sights Unseen Paranormal Blog'! They are speaking about a very valid topic, the "human propensity to anthropormorphize". This is an act in which we as humans attribute human like qualities/actions to things that are in fact not human. This is a very common problem in the world of paranormal research and study. Investigators will get it so set in their minds that something is a spirit or is definitely paranormal that they do not even try to debunk the phenomena as something explainable and not paranormal. This is how groups and investigators come up with invalid "evidence", that will/would soon be discredited by others. On that note, it is very important to always, first and foremost try to debunk any phenomena that you encounter as being not of the paranormal universe, before you claim that you 'found something'. Only publish evidence for which you have no logical sound explanation for, and cannot debunk as anything outside of the evidence being truly paranormal or unexplainable.

Here is the link to the blog entry, I hope you all enjoy!!

This is why we try to debunk first, but it is always important to have an open mind.
