Are people really communicating with the spirits of the dead?

This week’s feedback comes from Michael M. who asked:

On shows about the paranormal, is the equipment being used really detecting anything?

CMI-US CEO Gary Bates replies:

Dear Michael,

Thanks for your email. I am not too familiar with these ‘Ghost Hunters’ type shows, so I cannot comment on the exact type of equipment that they profess to use. To be honest, I don’t find the programs very enlightening or credible so I don’t waste my time with them. I note that there are similar shows called ‘Alien Hunters’ and ‘Ancient Aliens’ too.

Of course, the detection of a power field or surge in a room would be interpreted by those wanting it to be ghosts as exactly that. I noted comments from other Christian researchers in my book Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection that:….
