Why does Chris French deny the existence of everything he investigates.?


Isn't his investigations all just a crock relying on tired old excuses to disprove the existence of anything that he considers attacks his reputation upholding the scientific method. I give you an example of what I mean. In one location people over the years have reported sighting of a ghostly phenomena in a certain part of a building. What does he do. he sets up a camera and microphone for ONE night and picks up nothing on the camera but does pick up some sounds. 

Update 2:

He then claims that the sounds that were picked up are  most likely are coming from road  traffic  passing by outside and not anything related to the matter under investigation. My question is, although he claims to be a scientist of sorts, how serious is he at really coming to the truth of the matter. I mean, what good is it setting up a camera and microphone for one night when people living there say there experience is just a few times a year. Also, if you wanted to eliminate the possibility

Update 3:

that the noise was cause by traffic then you need to have someone posted outside to corroborate that fact. What I am saying is that all Chris French's research seems designed to fail to come to any conclusion and just maintain his reputation of , "knocking down"  any stories by using a means that in no way represents a serious investigation. He should set up his system over a year giving a fare chance of getting something on camera or sound and cover all the bases to eliminate false positives.

Update 4:

For example, if I did not know that supernova existed and where looking for a supernova event  in the sky I would be very unlikely to record such an  event if I just  set up my  camera for one night! If I did,  and were stupid enough, I could say that no such events occur. In truth I may need to wait a long time depending on what facilities I had available to me.

    Well, with so called "Paranormal" events the activity is usually wide spaced and very random---That is why it is so hard to study.     Of course we are really dealing with NATURAL events (There is no supernatural as such) that are either very obscure or perhaps not explainable yet in terms of present day Science .-----That superstitious people take for and only CALL "Ghosts".   A true Scientist would love to solve such mysteries and possibly discover something new.

    The chances of encountering the phenomenon  in ONE isolated investigation are practical nil, and prove nothing.--- I do Not imply "Ghosts" may exist however, but There are likely enough natural and non mythical, real phenomena going on, we may not understand, to both inspire the myth to begin with and keep it going.----Finding the true answers could be quite rewarding and be used as another argument against so called "Ghosts".

    Those who do NOT really want to find answers, do not take it seriously.

    Gov't is killing you with highfrequencyelectricity. Theotokos Virgin Mary gave prayers to "Schema-nun Antonia" on how to save aborted babies from hell. If you pray these prayers diligently, aborted babies are released from hell. On each painted nail there are forty demons. Smoking is censer to the devil.Using foul language calls upon Pagan deities (aka demons); Holy Spirit departs on seven meters. People who use drugs see demons who cleverly disguise themselves as ghosts and aliens.America will be last country to switch to Euro (antichrist's world currency). Contraceptives = abortion;using contraceptives for one year = five aborted kids.Miscarriages happen because of high heels; cesarean because of pants (second generation cesarean will be infertile).Unbaptized aborted/miscarried/unborn babies burn in hell until Final Judgement; if pregnant, keep the kid and deliver at home because kids are chippedusing IVs and vaccines in hospitals. Dentists and doctors chip patients secretly. Ultrasound leads to mark of the beast; don't do ultrasound, please. Abortion leads to breast cancer; a demon is released from hell for each aborted kid. Dogs can become possessed; don't keep dogs inside your home [Pelageya of Ryazan]. Walmart has technology to administer mark of the beast to those who have cat bacteria in their stomachs/brains; stay away from cats [Athanasius 3rd of Constantinople]. Next false flag is the Statue of Liberty. Above earth there is ice (dome); when rockets go up they bring ice down from upper sky to lower sky; ice stuck in lower sky will fall on us during Apocalypse. Earth is flat; earth stands on three stalactite pillars (The Most Holy Trinity); pillars stand on water at zero Kelvin; underneath this ice there is a bubble; and then the abyss. Zodiac is planetary prison of demons; don't believe in horoscopes or you'll exhibit the traits of the trapped demons. Most thoughts and dreamsare from demons; demons never do good. Sleep fully clothed; pray the Jesus prayer. Pray to your guardian angel to have normal sleep. Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov was the last prophet before Apostle John (who wrote the Book of Revelation), Enoch, Elijah, resurrected Seraphim of Sarov, and resurrected Sergius of Radonezh will preach against the antichrist. Humans were created about 7530 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It's a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level; they will get out through sinkholes and lakes; to kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Scientists don't see dinosaurs under our level because of radiation. Sinkholes happen because people dig for resources underground and because earth is heating up. Demons grow human skin (from a sample taken during abduction) and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite people to be healed inside their UFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov't provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you're being abducted, slowly pray the Jesus prayer. Don't panic. Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)moon 2)inside fake mountain Kailash (Tibet) 3)in lake Baikal in Russia 4)in Atlantis which is underneath double ocean floor of Mariana Trench (Pacific Ocean). There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. He's possessed by Satan since he's 12 years old [Lavrentiy Chernigovskiy]. He flies super fast; deceived people will say: "Christ is here; Christ is there" when he's flying from one city to the next very fast. He wears gloves to hide long nails. He'ssurrounded by demons who appear as angels of light. Antichrist will trick people that he can do mountain moving and resurrection using holograms/hypnosis; fire from the sky is real because of pollution gases in the atmosphere. Antichrist will have food only for 6 months; then he will feed his 666ed people flourfrom mashed up turtles (Tavrion Batozskiy), but this won't be enough because 666ed people are 10 times as angry and 7 times as hungry as normal people even though 666ed people became shorter (3-4 feet tall = 80 - 120 cm)because nanochips do function of organs (organs diminish) [Nilus Myrrhgusher]. If you have a lot of nanochips in your forearm, then you will not be able to make proper Orthodox sign ofthe cross (last mercy for you will be to cut yourforearm off). Nanochips are sprayed by the gov't usingchemtrails; they're also in gov't food andmedicine; so, eat food from your own garden. In case garden is destroyed by ice from the sky, have chickens for eggs and goats for milk (Paisios). Lipstick contains cells of abortedfetuses, dog fat, and placenta; human fleshis in McDonalds, Pepsi, toothpaste, antiaging,anticancer, vaccines, perfume, etc.; that's why you should not be using anything that modern society has to offer. You're better off hiding within a 10-15 people group in order to escape Apocalypse. During Apocalypse,Christians will eat dirt from under pussywillowtree as it's filled with tears of Theotokos VirginMary; this water will flee if a 666ed person tries to get it. Barcode is Druid black magic curse; QRcode is Mayan curse; when food is scanned, it becomes dead because laser is a substance from demons. Don't go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Unforgivablegreen666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card with no name on it (WorldPassport). It doesn't just have to be during this procedure (could be anything you sign up for or anywhere where there is a secret scanner); biometrics (fingerprints, eyescan) or getting picture for passport are very dangerous because they could mark you secretly. GabrielUrgebadze said thattheydoitonindexfingerwhenthey scan your finger. Basically, trytoavoidnewdocuments at all cost. Policewill microchip and isotope ray people on highways. Chipped people will be influenced by computers to take grey plastic card; but when they do, greenmark by isotope rays is given on forehead/wrist. Food stores will isotoperaypeopletoo. Antichrist will also release prisoners/insaneasylumpeople tomarkpeople. Reject 666 at all cost because it leads to permanent hell. If you're about to be marked, pray the Jesus prayer. Hide with OrthodoxChristians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can'ttrack you; burn documents because they're fromSatan. TheMostHolyTrinity gives you a name during baptism; devil gives an antiname during antibaptism (ex. SocialSecurityNumber). People who die with these Satanicdocuments go to concentrationcamp in hell to await FinalJudgement; once the BEASTComputer is burned down, souls will be released for FinalJudgement. That's why you should give back documents of your deceasedrelatives back to the gov't so that the gov't cancels these digital antichristiannames given during antibaptism by the beastsystem; or just burn thesedocumentsbecause gov't could get upset and could send demons to mark you because of this outright act of defiance. Prophecy from halfamillennium ago describes FinalJudgement like this: Jesus was very upset with people who had littleboards (plasticcards) in their hands because they wanted discount from the antichrist. Givetocharity in the name of ArchangelMichael; he rescues people from temporaryhell twice a year [at midnight September18-19 and similarly on November20-21; pray at these times on your knees remembering the deceased by names (adding "and relatives by flesh up to Adam") so that they arerescued if they're in hell] (or brings them up alevel, that is, to a level with lesspunishment;eventually, people arefreed). Feed thepigeons;when pigeons bowdown, people are savedfrom temporaryhell. It's a big sin to rememberthe deadwithwreaths (because demons put these wreaths on their necks if they're inhellwith theirwrists tied up behind their back while hanging by their wrists), meat,alcohol,sweets,andworldlymusic. Demons print icons of saints/crosses/8sidedstarofTheotokosVirginMary in newspapers/products so that you throw these newspapers/products in the trashblasphemingthesesaints. Crosses on solesofshoes and backofpants are blasphemy. Demons makecarpets with crosses and put them on sidewalks so that people walk on crosses. Playingcards mockhow Jesus sufferedonthecross: clubs(cross on which Jesus wascrucified), diamonds (fournails Jesus was crucified with), hearts (sponge with vinegar that Jesuswas given to drink),spades (spear with whichJesus waspierced).Cremationisdevilworship; only blasphemers such as Lenin should be burned; if Lenin is buried, earth will be polluted, and China will attack Russia because of this. AfterChinaattacksRussia, RuskiOrthodoxTsar (shown by resurrected SeraphimofSarov) willcome topowerinRussia;this Tsar will slay traitors inside church and gov't; asaresult, Russia will be the only country not under the antichrist.Ecumenism=263heresies;each heresy leads to hell. In 2006 in Moscow (that's why Moscow will sink),representatives from most religions signed a document where it says that all religions worship the same SupremeBeing [aka thedevil]. Priests who participate in ecumenism will have Pagans walking on theirheads in hell. ArkhimandriteAntoninKapustin left a prophecy that Church of All Russian Saints in Gorny Monastery, EinKarem, Israel will be blessed by forerunner of antichrist; pseudoPatriarchKirillofRussia and MarkofBerlin blessed thischurchin2007.

    erp.  If he investigated real stuff, nobody would watch would they?  I mean if you say two policemen in Missouri believe they witnessed a cow in the road, they maybe did.   If you say two hicks think they drove into a flying saucer, that is a parapsychology TV program for other hicks to watch.  So it makes sense for him to investigate the stuff he knows isn't there.

    You can't deny the existence of something not shown to exist. I'm guessing you are misrepresenting French.  Please provide a link or reference to whatever you are talking about.

    For a professional skeptic, saying that you might be wrong about a paranormal claim is very gutsy. It's like a grocer putting up a sign that says, "Nearly all the food sold here is perfectly safe. Just one person died from the botulism of a product sold here." I know of one professional skeptic who has done this - psychologist Richard Wiseman, who says that he does not find fault with the statistical analysis of paranormal investigator Jessica Utts of the Univ. of Calif, although he wants to see more evidence. Hats off to Dr. Wiseman!

    If Prof. French's research is designed to fail it would imply that it could have succeeded had he done a proper job. In paranormal investigations, there are many more led by believers than skeptics. A simple count of TV shows and books proves it. That would lead me to assume French's work has itself been debunked by a Ciarán O'Keeffe, a UK paranormal society, or the like.

    I do get your frustration but for the opposite reason. Watching Ghost Hunter or Cryptozoology shows how many times, in the end, they'd say something like "we're positive there's something here but must move on." Why did that always happen? Could you imagine a scientist saying "we're positive a T-Rex is in that jungle but we must move on to the Himalayas."  Ciarán O'Keeffe

    Because everything that he investigates is imaginary?

    I've read some of his interviews. He is wasting his life time. He will die ignorant. Well, there are more than this guy going the same way.

  • 4 months ago

    Because he is a professional skeptic.  That does not mean he dismisses everything outright, but instead conducts research to prove it validity.  Chris would probably be overjoyed to find quantifiable evidence of the paranormal, but until he does, he's not going to latch onto lies.
