Rules of the Paranormal

What are the rules when it comes to the paranormal? There seems to be many --for investigators, the ghosts and even haunted places-- but who made them?

What are the rules when it comes to the paranormal? There seems to be many --for investigators, the ghosts and even haunted places-- but who made them? And are they all necessary, useful, or just plain silly?

You can tell by the length of this episode that Deedee, Sara, and Courtney had a lot to discuss about this topic, including:

  • Who says if three consecutive photos all show a ghost, it can't be a ghost then?
  • Why do some investigators and haunted places have a rule against using Ouija boards?
  • Do crosses/crucifixes and Holy Water dispel a demon or a haunting you if you're not a Christian or don't believe in God? 
  • Are only Christians haunted/hunted by demons? 
  • Could a person's religious belief call forth energies? Or does it just stir up their imaginations based on the teachings they've learned?
  • Unexpected things that allegedly protect people from ghosts, like bells, tattoos and piercings.
  • Should haunted places be required to post warnings about their alleged ghosts? (And how some, like Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary, do.)
  • Rules of fashion --for both paranormal investigators and ghosts.
