The Skeptic Challenge

Postby TheParanormalAnalyst » 08 Jan 2014, 09:36

I have a challenge for skeptics or anyone else interested.

Using the scientific method describe an experiment that could prove the existence of ghosts.

Notes:
For the purposes of this experiment we will assume ghosts are 100% real and they are the product of energy from the deceased manifesting in various ways...

You need to consider measurement (how to measure the phenomenon), control (eliminating variables like EMF) and repeat-ability. All of these are key components to the scientific method.

You must also be considerate of the phenomenon and current technology. You cannot drag a ghost into a lab and take a picture of it. It has to be feasible and respect the characteristics of the phenomenon.

Goal
To prove that ghosts are in fact not a hallucination but a genuine phenomenon that is not caused by any mechanism known to science i.e. it's paranormal.
Critical Thinking and Logic offer the only sure path to truth.

4 of the Best Kettlebell Exercises,air max pas cher
One leg deadlift
Hold the kettlebell in the left hand with an overhand grip with the arm straight. Stand with feet collectively. Lift leg a bit so foot is just off floor. Lower the kettlebell toward the floor while raising right leg back behind. Keep the back straight and the knee of the left leg somewhat bent. Keep hip and knee of lifted leg extended throughout movement. Once you feel the stretch or the kettlebell contacts floor,air max pas cher, return to original position by raising torso while lowering lifted leg. Straighten knee of supporting leg as torso becomes upright. Repeat with kettlebell in right hand,air max pas cher, raising the left leg behind
Stand in front of a bench at a distance of between 3-4 feet,air max pas cher, holding kettlebells in each hand. Place the instep of your left foot on the bench behind you. Keeping your back straight,air max pas cher, lower your body until your right knee becomes bent 90 degrees and your left knee comes near to touching the floor. Your body should never bend whilst doing this exercise,air max pas cher, and the lower part of your right leg should become perpendicular with the floor. Now push yourself back up to the position in which you started. Now repeat the exercise,air max pas cher, but this time beginning with your right foot on the bench.
Kettlebell Swing
Place one kettlebell/kettlebell between your feet. Push back with your butt and bend the knees to get into the starting position (just like a deadlift starting position). Make sure that your spine/back is flat and look straight ahead. Swing the kettlebell between your legs as if you are passing a football to somebody behind you. Quickly turn back direction and drive though with your hips explosively taking the kettlebell straight out and up to extension above the head. The arms don't need to bend,air max pas cher, the back should stay straight,air max pas cher, and midsections must be kept tight. Let the kettlebell swing down and back between your legs and repeat. The power for the swing is primarily from the hamstring muscle.
Get into position by squatting with your feet a little wider than hip width apart while grasping the KB with a wide overhand grip. Keep your back flat and chest up,air max pas cher, and your midsection tight. Start the movement by picking up the KB off the floor with an extended arm. To begin the lift,air max pas cher, drive your hips as you would in a KB swing.
