One of my favorite channels on TV is the Sci-Fi channel. I love all things science fiction, from the books to the movies to the TV shows that feature what our imaginations can create from the unknown. As far as books go, Orson Scott Card is my favorite author. Movies, pretty much all of them, since I cut on teeth on the original Star Wars. TV shows, my all time favorite is called “Ghost Hunters”.
Now, let me just preface by saying that when I first watched this, my thoughts were along the lines of can you believe what passes for entertainment these days? or something equally as snide. But I was soon hooked, not because of the whole ghost-thing, but because there is a huge element of we-are-not-alone-here, a kind of wake up to the fact that there is more than just what we see.
“Ghost Hunters” is a show featuring Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, two Roto-Rooter employees that start up a team of investigators called T.A.P.S., that stands for The Atlantic Paranormal Society. They are called into homes, buildings, different locations that are rumored as being “haunted” and investigate the claims using various devices like cameras, voice recordings and other uber-techno goodies. It’s a really fun show to watch. I’ve even got Lance flipping there when he’s in control of the remote.
Now, I personally, do not believe in ghosts. I am what you classify as a “skeptic” at least when it comes to ghosts. But I do read the Bible and there are places in the Bible that tell us there are different spirit-like beings that are here, sometimes seen, sometimes not.
Yesterday, Lance showed me a photograph from Fox News, our source for current events. Here’s the photo:
This was taken by a digital camera at a wedding in a castle in Scotland. You can read about it here.
Here’s what I really want you to see in this photo:
As you can see (by my really bad insert-photo-abilities), there’s a HAND.
Once again, I’m not saying there are ghosts, but there is some weird and unexplainable stuff.
What do you think?
