Author and paranormal researcher Don Allison joins me again to discuss instances of paranormal activity at Gettysburg Battlefield. Get his books on Amazon.
Veteran journalist and historian Don Allison serves up a very personal exploration of the paranormal in "I Met More Ghosts at Gettysburg: A Journalist's Paranormal Journey Continues."Don relies on keen insight honed through decades of newspaper writing and editing as he shares his own encounters with the paranormal. In the down-to-earth style he employs in his award winning and long running newspaper column "On My Mind," he shares what he encountered, and his very human reactions.In layman's terms Don also takes a look at the forces of nature he believes are behind these unexplained occurrences, as well as some of the scientific theories that have been proposed.In short, this skeptic is convinced we have something to gain from studying those fascinating occurrences in this world we currently do not understand."A great read, very entertaining … I think you’ve created an ‘Everyman’s’ explanation of paranormal occurrences,” is how Mark Nesbitt, “Ghosts of Gettysburg” author and paranormal investigator, describes Don’s earlier work “I Met a Ghost at Gettysburg."As Don relates in the preface to "I Met More Ghosts at Gettysburg,""It’s a great enigma, really. Human cultures across time have expressed a belief in ghosts, yet there is no conclusive, generally accepted scientific proof that they exist. And what exactly is a ghost, anyway?"It seems if ghosts do exist, science would have found irrefutable evidence by now. Yet countless people throughout history – up to and including the present day – have experiences they cannot explain, and believe they have encountered what we commonly consider to be a ghost. "At some level most of us are afraid of our own mortality, and paranormal occurrences can be taken as a sign of encouragement, that perhaps death does not end our existence. We can see unexplained communication as evidence that our consciousness can indeed live on after our physical departure. Deep down we may want to believe, and this can alleviate at least some of that fear of taking our final breath."On the other hand, some people are terrorized at the possibility of encountering a spirit.
