So I was watching some series on discovery science the other day and one thing kind of baffled me.
The Scole Experiment. It was actually just a séance, but under scientific conditions and lots of rules so the medium couldn't do any tricks.
If you don't know anything about it, I found this website with more info about it (haven't found any pages on wikipedia, strangely):
The S-Files category basically shows you everything about it.
Now, a sceptical already showed that it's really easy to fake a séance. As it has always been a trick, actually.
Still, I'm not sure whether it's fake or not.
The statement I'm making now will come over quite stupid to some people, but: Why would scientists joke on us? Of course, the medium could have done some tricks. But under the conditions that the scole experiment has been performed, this would be very hard to do if not impossible.
What do you think about this? Fake or real?
EDIT: It seems a lot of people didn't understand the website so I'll add a bit of info.
So it's a normal séance, just with scientists and under strict rules.
For example, a table where nothing could be done below it to prevent people doing tricks under it.
Glowstick armbands so others can see what the others are doing, so no one sneaking out to do tricks.
The basement was locked internally, so they were sure no one could get in from the outside.
Then the results were like a normal séance. They started to see lights, voices and objects falling from the sky.
But now the interesting bit:
What's so special about this?
You should recognize a woman's face in it. I know you'll say now: "I recognized it because you told me". That might be true, but think beyond that. How did the pictures get there?
The roll where they found these pictures on was in a locked box so no one could play with it (and the roll was new as well).
They claim that these pictures are from the spirit world, a ghost left them behind there.
The scientists that did this experiment claim that this is solid proof to proof the existence of ghosts. What do you think?
