A Paranormal Investigator Describes Her Journey from Believing in Ghosts to Accepting Science

In a TED talk that just went up on YouTube, Carrie Poppy, co-host of the excellent Oh No Ross and Carrie podcast, talks about how she approaches paranormal activities with a skeptical mind.

I know she doesn’t need to convince any of you, but it’s a really fantastic story about how she went from believing in ghosts to realizing there was likely a scientific explanation to whatever she was feeling.

I’ve done over 70 investigations like this with my co-host, Ross. I would love to tell you that nine times out of 10, science wins, saves the day, it’s all explained. That’s not true. The truth is, 10 times out of 10, science wins, it saves the day.

And that doesn’t mean there’s no such thing as a mystery. Of course there are mysteries, but a mystery is a mystery. It is not a ghost.

She does a really nice job of explaining her thought process to people who might be on the fence about believing in ghosts. Here’s hoping they hear this.
