About: Fact or Faked - Paranormal Files

Written by: The Overlord

Have you seen Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files? If not, you should. This documentary/reality program has been on the air since 2010 and originates on the American channel Syfy.

fact-or-faked-titleIt has a simple premise. In each episode, the investigation team reviews several video clips claiming supernatural activity, decide which two cases are to be investigated that week. The team then breaks into two groups and we follow each as they investigate their stories. The team is led by Ben Hansen, a former FBI agent and consists of a noted paranormal researcher, a photographer, a journalist, a stuntman/special effects expert and a technology expert.

Part of their criteria for an investigation are as follows: is the footage compelling, are the witnesses credible and is it something they can attempt to reproduce or test.

As described on the Syfy website - Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files revolutionizes paranormal programming by uncovering the truth behind supernatural and unexplained occurrences that have been caught on camera. In each episode, the team searches for the most intriguing images, videos and unnatural phenomenon found online and around the world. After selecting the most compelling cases, they head into the field, attempting to recreate the video, carrying out key experiments and questioning eyewitnesses. The team investigates all the clues and evidence with the most advanced techniques and tools at their disposal, and their objective is to answer the question, "Is this real?"

In their investigations they manage to prove reasonable explanations for most events. They are able to show what is hoaxed, how it was likely accomplished and will often show how or why something was misidentified. They're professional, and take what they do seriously.

If they cannot explain how something was done, it's after significant effort has been made to do so. They've done numerous nighttime investigations and played several recording of electronic voice phenomena (EVP) that are fascinating.

We highly recommend this show to people who are interested in the paranormal, and especially if you're interested in doing investigations yourself.

Is This Photo Proof That Bigfoot & Humans Share A Common Ancestor?

Bigfoot researchers have long supposed that the legendary cryptid is a primate, and therefore related to modern humans.

Recently discovered photo examinations which originate from Shawnee, Oklahoma may hold an important clue.

William Bradley has long held an interest in Sasquatch. Himself a native of Shawnee, Bradley states that Oklahoma has long been a hot bed of Bigfoot activity.

Bradley claims to have multiple talents which have helped him discover the truth.

When Hunting For Bigfoot, Look Up.
Way up.

Regular readers to ParaNorthern on Facebook or our website know that I am officially a Bigfoot skeptic. Even though I want to believe that a large primate inhabits the considerable wilderness of the North American continent, most of the so called evidence falls into the category of Bollocks. (Ask someone British.)

So when I read recently that some Sasquatch hunters are suggesting that we look to the tree tops for sleeping Bigfoot I laughed out loud. I could not picture something of the supposed mass of of this bipedal cryptid climbing a tree to get a good night's rest.

But then I saw this video.
