Let your work speak for itself.

Why is it that people report when using a new technique, piece of equipment or conducting a new experiment is that it seems to work initially and results later drop off. Is it a case of experimenter enthusiasm?

Are your experiences investigating the paranormal different as your research path changes?
2nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 375 views. 2 comments. General.
I am often asked by people, do you believe in ghosts? For me that is actually a really complicated question and the answer is not straight forward.

When you compare this to the actual scientific method, are we really being that scientific just because we have a gadget?
