I was asked on Facebook what kind of proof I have that the doll is what I say it is. He went on to say that 95% of the paranormal claims made on Facebook are bullshit (his word).
I asked what he meant by “proof.” He not only didn’t respond, he disappeared from the the group! [I have a group dedicated to discussing Harold on Facebook. Harold the Haunted Doll – send a request if you’d like to join.]
Anyway, I private messaged him the following –
What happened to you? I asked what you constituted as proof, and you disappeared!
What’s up with that?
I have tons of “evidence.” Can I say conclusively that the evidence constitutes proof? No. Which is why I wanted to know what “proof “means” to you.
Again, gravity hasn’t been proven. I’m pretty sure EVERYONE on Facebook believes in it. So I guess they’re all full of shit? Is that your contention?
There are a lot of men and women in prison who are there because they were “proven” to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, only to be “proven” innocent later. Much of what scientists believed years ago has been proven to be wrong today. Much of what scientists believe today, will sooner or later be “proven” incorrect in the future.
So, in your opinion, what constitutes “proof” when it comes to the paranormal?
