The Million Ghost March to Protest TAM8.

Yes you read the title right, something called “The Million Ghost March” will be protesting The Amazing Meeting 8 in Las Vegas, Nevada this year. There has been a bit of discussion on whether this is a spoof or something serious. The director, Dr. Paranormal (no real name is ever mentioned) claims to be the head of a school called the “Edgar Allen Poe Community College.” This “school” supposedly grants their graduates with an associate’s degree in Applied Psychic Arts. Just don’t get to excited you paranormal enthusiasts, don’t even bother Googling it, no such degree or college exists. So I tend to agree with my fellow skeptics that this is just a spoof. However if this is the real thing, many big names (all of which are deceased) are said to make an appearance!

“Many celebrity spirits are expected to join the march, including Michael Jackson, Ronnie James Dio and Brittany Murphy,“ states Doc Paranormal. “At the first Million Ghost March, celebrity ghosts included such Las Vegas legends as gangster Bugsy Seigel, entertainers George Raft, Liberace and George Jessel, the Rat Pack and journalist Hunter S. Thompson, author of the book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. We expect that this year’s march will feature an international cast of contemporary spirits.”

 This cannot be real; it is to funny be to taken seriously. I am sure the JREF are shaking in their boots at these claims. Better yet, maybe Dr. Paranormal and his band of Woo Woo’s can take their amazing roster of 923,985 spirits and prove the existence of the afterlife, win that million dollar challenge live at TAM8. I can see the headlines now; “The Million Ghost March Wins The Million Dollar Challenge.” It would be amazing (no pun intended). Sadly no such thing will happen, because Dr. Paranormal unknowingly confirms the belief of many skeptics, that the paranormal is just the product of one’s imagination:

“It’s a celebration of:

*The human imagination.

*Creativity.

*Diversity. In thought. And action.

*The mystery of our existence. Life is much more than a card trick.”

 Well one thing I do agree with, life is indeed much more than a card trick. Yet in sharing that same sentiment, one doesn’t have to share belief that there are 923,985 spirits signed up and ready to protest a skeptical conference. I will follow up on this “Million Ghost March” and if it turns out to be a sham, I will be having some words with Jeff Belanger over at http://www.GhostVillage.com for producing such rubbish on a site he claims is full of valuable information.

About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic
Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at www.porkrhine.com At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.
