Recently, I was interviewed by Seth and Molly for “Skeptical Sunday” at Radio.Seti.org on the topic of ghosts, particularly the one(s) at Toys R Us in Sunnyvale, CA.
They had a number of other guests on this edition too. The spin, of course, is that of the skeptic, and it seems that none of the other guests/experts were at all open to even the possibility of the existence of ghosts, or possibly of God. (In this edition, it seemed as though all religion and faith were at times dismissed as psychological weakness.) That part was a suprise to me!
I would agree that skepticism around the topic of ghosts is a very good practice, and that natural explanations should be sought first, always, when something unusual or seemingly inexplicable occurs. Sometimes, though, there appear to be no natural explanations and perhaps what we’re bumping into is something that cannot be explained logically or scientifically.
Have a listen ~ I’d be interested in hearing your feedback!
