For investigator Joshua P. Warren the scientific method is the preferred choice for understanding ghostly phenomenon. As the main guest on Monday night, he laid out a set of tools and procedures for capturing evidence of ghosts.
Curiously, he said that ghosts are more likely to be found in a social environment such as a shopping mall, rather than a graveyard. One of the simplest and most effective devices, he advised, is a compass. Because it detects magnetic fields, it can readily serve as an alert to anomalous activity, where the magnetism may suddenly change. Warren also had praise for digital cameras, which provide immediate feedback and have some sensitivity to the infrared spectrum.
Setting up a strobe light during an investigation can be useful in being able to see things that are normally moving too fast for the eyes to register, he said. Video cameras, Warren continued, "allow you to see how entities are moving." One noteworthy video he described showed an orb coming out of a drawer, momentarily brightening and then flying into someone's stomach.
First hour guest, Joseph Farah, the founder of WorldNetDaily, discussed the possibility of a terrorist/al-Qaeda connection to the current wildfires in Southern California. "This series of fires seems very different," said Farah, who noted that the FBI had been previously given information that al-Qaeda was planning to torch forest land in the western U.S. "It's important to consider these things so we don't have our head in the sand," he stated.
