There is a lot of debate surrounding paranormal activity. Some people believe that it is real, while others think it is nothing more than a hoax. However, there are several pieces of evidence that suggest that paranormal activity is in fact real. In this blog post, we will discuss six of the most compelling pieces of evidence that support this claim.
Reports of Paranormal Phenomena
Throughout history, people have reported experiencing paranormal phenomena such as ghosts, poltergeists, and hauntings. While some are more credible than others, there are enough consistent reports to suggest that something mysterious is going on.
Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP)
Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) have been subject to much debate over the years - people claim that voices on old recordings are those of ghosts, while skeptics say they understand the science behind it. What we do know is that millions of people around the world have reported hearing strange disembodied voices when listening to audio recordings, or having unusual noises or sound interference when there was seemingly nothing that should be in that space at the time. Some of these recordings – when slowed down and listened to carefully – are said to contain human-like speech patterns and sentences, making them all the more spooky. Whether or not you believe in EVP and what mysteries this phenomenon holds remains to be seen -- but for now it’s certainly something worthy of continued exploration!
Unexplainable photos and video footage
Sometimes when researching cryptids and other paranormal activity, you come across a photograph or video that just leaves you scratching your head. Are these strange sights created by hoaxers, natural phenomena, unknown creatures…or something else entirely? Whatever it is, there’s definitely something spooky going on in our world – you never know what you might come across during your own investigations. From the now infamous ‘Mothman’ photo to grainy Bigfoot footage, all of these evidence-based anomalies offer up more questions than answers. So while the truth remains elusive and the evidence incomplete, one thing is certain: unexplained photos and videos serve as a reminder that things aren’t always as they seem.
Unexplained Animal Behaviour
Animals have a sixth sense that humans don't possess. They are known to act oddly around sites of paranormal activity, such as cowering in fear or ceasing all vocalizations. This could be due to the presence of an “invisible” force. It is also believed that animals are able to sense ghosts and other supernatural entities — often times, they will react in fear or flee the area.
There have been many credible witness accounts of paranormal activity, ranging from ghostly apparitions to UFOs and other strange phenomena. While these reports may not be as hard and fast evidence as some would like, they are still worth considering — especially when multiple witnesses tell the same story.
Witness testimonies can be powerful evidence, as they provide a human element to the discussion and add weight to other forms of spiritual evidence.
It’s not just anecdotal evidence that suggests paranormal activity is real – there are also scientific studies that point toward the existence of the paranormal. For example, some scientists have conducted experiments that suggest that humans can sense when someone is staring at them from behind, even if they cannot see them. Others have studied the effects of electromagnetic fields on people and believe this could explain some hauntings and other supernatural occurrences.
What is ESP?
ESP, or extra-sensory perception, refers to the potential ability of a person to perceive information without the use of their regular senses. It's an exciting field that has been studied in parapsychology and has a lot of potential applications in scientific research. Many people are convinced ESP exists and is being increasingly documented, while skeptics remain unconvinced and want more evidence before they accept the phenomenon. Despite the divide among experts in the field, it’s still interesting to wonder just what possibilities could result from further exploration of this intriguing subject. For those who believe in its existence, ESP provides fascinating insight into how the world works around us, giving us a glimpse at things outside our five normal senses. The mystery may never be solved for sure, but we can enjoy exploring it nonetheless!
ESP: What can science say?
There's something curiously captivating about the idea of extrasensory perception (ESP). As a cryptid blogger, I'm often on the lookout for mysterious phenomena that science has yet to explain. Despite superficial similarities between ESP and other paranormal events, science appears far less apprehensive when it comes to exploring ESP - in fact, some scientific experiments focusing on psychic powers have been conducted since the late 19th century. Of course, results from such studies are still inconclusive - ESP is by no means an undisputed area of research yet. Nevertheless, I can't help but feel excited by recent advancements in this field. With a little luck and hard work, perhaps we'll finally gain reliable evidence that ESP indeed exists after all!
What is Ghost Hunting?
Ghost hunting has taken off in recent years as one of the most popular hobbies among people who want to make contact with the paranormal world. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, it’s an undeniably thrilling concept – using different tools and techniques to search for evidence of a spirit or entity in its physical environment. Some of the more common instruments used in ghost hunting include cameras, temperature gauges, audio recorders, EMF (electromagnetic field) detectors and divining rods. In addition to equipment, many practitioners also rely on their own perceptions to detect paranormal activity, such as experiencing cold spots or detecting the scent of fragrances associated with deceased loved ones. Regardless of your reasons for taking part in a ghost hunt, it’s certainly an unforgettable experience.
Paranormal Investigator Gear
Being a paranormal investigator isn't just about dressing up like Mulder and Scully from The X-Files and dreaming of finding the next undiscovered cryptid! It requires the right gear if you want to be assured you have the highest chances of success. Luckily, there is no lack of specialist tools to help fuel your investigations - there's thermography cameras to seek out evidence of temperature fluctuations, recorders to take note of any strange sounds, special night vision scopes for safe nighttime expeditions, and electromagnetic field monitors to measure potential spirits! By having the right equipment handy for whatever case you're working on, you can never be caught unprepared in your search for the unknown.
The paranormal is an incredibly fascinating field that continues to captivate people’s imaginations and get them thinking about the possibilities of unseen forces. Unfortunately, due to the mysterious nature of what lies beyond our physical reality, it can be difficult to truly prove or disprove its existence — but that doesn’t mean we should stop looking. Whether we believe in ghosts, UFOs, or other supernatural occurrences, it is important to remain open-minded and continue researching this fascinating subject. With the right tools and a lot of patience, anything is possible!

We are OBSESSED with our plushie. The only problem is now we need MORE. Super soft, excellent handmade quality. These “haunted pants” are the perfect adorably creepy addition to any collection. We can’t wait to get our hands on more! So glad to have found these!
I love my Mothman plushy! He’s so cute and fuzzy. The wings are the best part, so soft! The only problem is keeping them away from my pups! (And the catastrophic bad omen of having him nearby) 🤣
This Fresno Nightcrawler Stuffed Cryptid is the perfect companion for camping trips. It is cozy, charming, and adventurous. It looks like it belongs in the woods and blends in with nature. I took a photo of it on a tree and it looked amazing. It is a great gift for anyone who loves camping and cryptids. I adore it and recommend it.

I always loved cryptids growing up seeing YouTube videos and tv shows talking about them always fascinated me and then years later I stubbled to this site from Instagram and fell further in love with the merch! The plushies really have me in a chokehold I currently own the Fresno nightcrawler and plan on buying them all! Even plan on buy them as presents for family members! So damn adorable!
Love how furry and fluffy the stuffed cryptids are.
these are so well made, you can feel the quality as soon as you open the package. the eyes are beaded on very securely and despite how fluffy they look, they still have minimal shedding which is super convenient. obviously adorable, but also extremely worth the price. don’t hesitate to buy!
