Debunking: Meaning-to prove untrue.

The September and October Ghost Walks at the library were a huge success.  As always, some Walks were quieter and some were amazing. One can never tell what you might find during one of the events.

For anyone that does not know about our Ghost Walks, they are in fact a paranormal investigation.  By purchasing a ticket you may join one of the tours you are allowed to partake.  No one under the age of 15 is allowed to attend. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own ghost hunting equipment as well as use the libraries ghost hunting gadgets.  These include KIIs, EMF detectors, digital recorders, camcorders, laser grid pens, and digital thermometers.  Our hope is we or the patrons touring with us will be able to catch evidence of spirits in the building.

After each event we ask anyone that is lucky enough to catch EVPs, photographs, or video to share with us.  By recording this information and combining all evidence, a better view of what we have is known. Evidence is our key to help tell the story of the spirits in our midsts.

Not long after the last Ghost Walk tours, one of friends contacted me stating she might have caught a “green man” and would I review the photo and other evidence she emailed to me. I was excited but I know to always be a bit skeptical when it comes to evidence.  Once I viewed the photo I did indeed see something green and it seemed to be hovering above where a regular person would be walking.  I enlarged the photo but this was of no help.  I then enlarged and printed the photo.  This was also inconclusive.  Next I physically walked and stood where the woman had stood while taking photographs.

Debunked!  I was disappointed to find what seemed to be the “green man” was actually a green plant.  It seems a very tall thin plant stands just behind the Events Billboard.  When the photo was taken light filtered through and made the large leaves seem to be transparent and they took on the shape of a possible human figure.

As disappointing as it is at times to find the evidence debunked, we still press on.  Once the woman was told she understood and was glad to know the truth one way or the other.  I appreciate her understanding.  I have in the past received photos of shadows and unknown shapes.  The person that took them was not understanding when told of how the evidence had been debunked.  It is never our intent to upset the person submitting proof, it is quite the opposite.  We will now and forever continue to search for truth and hard facts whenever possible.

Special thanks to Corrie Probst for sharing her photos and evidence.

Thank you to all of those that have taken the time to share evidence proven or debunked. Your efforts are always appreciated.
