The Ghost Hunters Time Forgot

With a rise in popularity, ghost hunting has become more mainstream. Every year we have waves of new teams forming after watching paranormal T.V. A large part of this is due to the television show Ghost Hunters. This rise, however, has caused a huge stigma in metaphysical usage in investigating.

While I myself am not a fan of these methods, say for trusting my senses and instincts, so while I understand the bias toward it I am able to see that the field at large and their bias is unfounded. Why do I say that? Because I’ve heard it multiple times… and read it on numerous websites and forums.

I’ve also heard many times of the TAPS team being revered as “THE TEAM” when they’re no different than any other team that truly takes their work seriously. It’s these same people who have a huge unfounded bias toward the metaphysical, citing Ghost Hunters and TAPS as their inspiration.

I’m here today to burst a few bubbles. Haunting Review proudly presents… The Ghost Hunters Time Forgot.
Here we will show off some of the members of TAPS who employ the metaphysical to meet their ends. That’s right, folks, even TAPS uses psychics, reiki, demonologist, and other various people/tools in their investigations.

Meet Amy. Amy Andrews was at one time used for her reiki abilities by the team. According to IMDB she only appeared in one episode.

Now meet Heather Drolet, a pagan. According to IMDB she made one appearance a year between 2004 and 2008.

Surely everyone remembers Carl Johnson, demonologist extraordinaire!  He hasn’t been seen since 2006.

Could this be a coincidence? Of course.. I don’t know the inner-workings of the show, network, or production company but one thing I do know is that you don’t see people like this on their series when it seems like they were an integral part of the show in the early days.

Look it up and judge for yourself! and try to be a little more open-minded toward teams that use the metaphysical and those who believe in it.

  • I think they dont use them often because, if you have ever read the book “Ghost Hunting”, then you would know that they are more interested as a team in PROVING with scientific FACTS to the client. They cant prove if a psychic is telling the truth, so as they are a good aide, it just doesn’t make credible evidence. I like that about Ghost Hunters actually, or else I would watch Most Haunted with that really annoying British chick that says “do you hear that?!!” every 2 seconds.

    • I see where you are coming from and I would agree with you except that book was written some time after they slowly but surely started featuring these types of members less and less. If their original goal, even from the beginning, was that then they wouldn’t have ever allowed them to use their alternative methods of investigating in the first place, right? Great look at it though!

  • How is using an EMF meter, or an infra-red camera, or an “EVP” recorder any different than using Reiki, crystals, Ouija boards or goat entrails for finding “ghosts”?

    When you look beneath the hood there’s no *real* science here, just an attempt to legitimize bunk by using technology.

    Giving a man an EMF meter doesn’t make him a scientist any more than giving a monkey a violin makes it a musician.

  • I agree, but it’s a lot harder to disprove well documented and electronically gathered/observed data.

    Give any pimply teen a pair of bent copper sticks and they could talk about feelings and point in directions but there isn’t any way to verify that.

    At least with a hand held camera pointed on a digital recorder in any empty room any unexplained noises or movement will take much more effort to disprove.

    The underlying problem is there isn’t any rhyme or reason to what happens. You can’t with any certainty reproduce any paranormal event. Methods have been developed that allow you greater odds of getting the desired results, but honestly you’d have better luck working with kids or animals.
