Okay so to keep a long story short, I just read the biggest line of bullshit I have ever read about someone’s opinion about the paranormal.
Bonnie Vent has posted multiple times throughout the last few years that she believes that paranormal investigations are “Hollywood” and “Fake”, and that Paranormal Investigators are just a bunch of liars and use no science. She’s even got an entire staff that is dedicated to debunking the sciences of paranormal investigation.
Okay, so she sounds like just another skeptic, right? Wrong. She claims to be a “Spirit Advocate” that speaks to the dead.
What in the hell???
I kid you not . . . someone who claims she speaks to the dead saying that paranormal is a bunch of “bullshit” (her word, not mine). The last time i checked, being a medium is . . . well . . . part of the paranormal investigation world. Her web site – http://www.bonnievent.com/ – just screams paranormal. She states that, “it’s her job to help dead celebs like Michael Jackson, George Carlin and “Crocodile Hunter” star Steve Irwin by delivering messages to their loved ones from beyond the grave.”
Trust me, lady – Michael Jackson was beyond communication even when he was alive. However, Steve Irwin kicked ass – please give him my regards. Wait, never mind that. Don’t. It’s an insult to an awesome man of history and education to have someone like you bugging him in death.
In the meantime, until she comes up with forensic, scientific recorded evidence that validates her “gift”, she should not be critiquing those of us that actually Do use science to investigate the unexplained.
Exploring the paranormal as an investigator is actually mostly about debunking. A good investigator tries their best to explain the unexplainable using the natural environment around them. Rattling pipes, low frequency sound waves, high EMF emitting from power boxes in a room, ambient sound, pets, rodents – a LOT can prove that so-called “haunting” events are actually just a misinterpretation by the observer of something that is actually normal, not paranormal. When we cannot explain something, it is paranormal. Does that mean it is a ghost? No, it does not. It simply means it is unexplained and as yet has no answer.
Yet . . . our science is “bullshit” while she can sit around going “I see dead people” in Hollywood.
What I think is REALLY amusing is she states that TV reality series, such as Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, “scare” things up and create fluff to boost ratings . . . she says this as if she doesn’t have logos from every major network posted at the bottom of her web page. Pot? kettle? Anyone?
/////EDIT///// I wanted to add – before folks start harking on me about my references to Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures, I was using irony to point out the amusement of one fake calling everyone in a scientific field fake and using the names of a couple of reality TV shows as her examples. YES, GH and GA are BOTH fake shows. ALL reality TV shows are fake. There is NO SUCH THING as a real reality TV show. It’s all acting. I had to mention though because of how hard I was laughing hearing Ms. “I see . . . wait . . . sorry I TALK TO . . . dead people” saying that anyone in the paranormal field is a fake and using those as her only references.
What a laugh.
