Ed & Lorraine Warren-50 Years Paranormal Research-Real Deal? Or Fake's?

  Author:  15070  Category:(Debate) Created:(8/30/2002 12:19:00 PM)

I first read THE DEMONOLOGIST, about 20 years ago. I was going through my "scary-book-Stephen-King-phase." This book scared the snot out of me! No kidding. I found the Warren's honest, open, and completely credible. Of, course, at that time, I was very, very young, and knew NOTHING of demology, or "hauntings".

I knew about "ghosts", having seen some, but the whole "inhuman" spirit thing, got to me. I became an avid reader of any, and all, stories by the Warren's. I found no contradiction between their strong Catholic Faith, and their work.

The Warren's have come under attack from many angles, including other "paranormal researchers".

The Warren's have been Paranormal Researchers for over 50 years. Lorraine is a Psychic, and Ed, at one time, was the only lay-demonologist recongnized by the Catholic Church.

Now, my position is this: even with my tiny experience in paranormal research (less than 5 years), I have seen, and felt things, that exceed what we captured on film, and recordings.I know the unseen world is filled with activity.

I also have a friend, who met the Warren's, when they came to USF, and spoke. He was completely impressed.

The Warren's offical web site is:(http://www.warrens.net/main.htm)

the biggest controversy, was their "investigation" of the Amityville Horror/Hoax. ( I do not know that it is a hoax-but it is looking bad)

Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 8/30/2002 12:46:00 PM  From Authorid: 53836    I heard that the Warren's admitted to the Amityville Hoax, but stand by their other investigations...I don't know much about either, so thank you for sharing the link...I was looking for something to read Great post, I am interested in reading how others feel ~SpaceCase  
Date: 8/30/2002 12:47:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    thank you Space-Case. Be sure to read the story "Annabelle". That is a very, scary story.  
Date: 8/30/2002 12:54:00 PM  From Authorid: 15997    I say they are the real deal...they've dedicated 50 years to helping people with hauntings...and dont they do lectures for free?? have you seen the movie "The Haunting"?? the true story of a women dealing with the spirits in her house and how she asked ed and lorraine to help her?? I thought it was good and thats how I first heard about them.  
Date: 8/30/2002 12:56:00 PM  From Authorid: 15997    opps my mistake I meant "The Haunted" not "The Haunting"  
Date: 8/30/2002 1:05:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    yes, THE HAUNTED is a true story, of Jack & Janet Smurl. I remember when it happened. They do not charge for their "investigations", except for "travel" expenses, and food & lodging. They do charge for their lectures, in fact, they are having one Sunday - October 20, 2002 <see http://pub24.ezboard.com/fparanormalresearch32456frm31> for futher information, and the cost for the dinner alone is $79.00 each. Ed Warren might not even be there, (he has heart problems). But Dave Juliano, from THE SHADOWLANDS web site, and a man a respect in the paranormal field, knows the Warren's & speaks to their nephew. That is a good ref'nce for me, since I have faith in Dave.  
Date: 8/30/2002 1:17:00 PM  From Authorid: 54987    I'm sure they started off with good intentions and if their investigations were properly documented, then yeah fine. However, you mentioned the Amytiville Horror hoax and suddenly they just lost all credibility for me. They can just pack up their ectoplasm catchers and ghost bum thermometers and go take a hike. I'm not condemning real investigators... I think there is something we cannot explain about the world as yet, but they showed their true colors there. - Coolade  
Date: 8/30/2002 1:21:00 PM  From Authorid: 10722    Whether they are real or not, I've no idea, but I still hold great respect for them. I consider them the elder gods of ghost hunting and paranormal investigation..lol   
Date: 8/30/2002 1:41:00 PM  From Authorid: 25183    I have no idea if they are real or fake, but their experiences are very interesting. Thanks for posting this! I checked out their website, and spent an hour there.  
Date: 8/30/2002 2:13:00 PM  From Authorid: 15997    Thanks for the info LSG.  
Date: 8/30/2002 5:16:00 PM  From Authorid: 16671    Hey I liked this post so much that I also made one on these people, with alot of information they give us that will help. Good post, lsg.  
Date: 8/30/2002 8:41:00 PM  From Authorid: 60162    I think it is all fake. They have no real evidence on any of this stuff yet, so how can they make such claims? I dont believe it myself.  
Date: 8/30/2002 8:43:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    actually, they have a TON of evidence, from different investigations.  
Date: 8/31/2002 4:01:00 PM  From Authorid: 50435    Who am I to say either? I prefer to take the safe road and say 'real-deal'. I'm a big fan of the Lou Gentile Show and he appears to be their biggest fan. They don't charge a fee for their services, save for room/board and transportation, so I feel that they are legit. They are in big demand so obviously they are doing something right. The Demonologists gave me nightmares for a couple of years after reading it...  
Date: 8/31/2002 4:02:00 PM  From Authorid: 50435    60162, they have more evidence than you have fingers and toes...  
Date: 8/31/2002 6:13:00 PM  From Authorid: 60162    If they have so much evidence then why isnt "Ghosts" a fact then? Its still myth in so many peoples minds. There is no real, hard core, evidence. It is just evidence that could still be the cause of something else that they are yet to prove. dont get me wrong, I am sure some of it is quite possibly real but until they actually say "Ghosts are fact and not fiction because we caught one...looky... here it is!" then I am still going to be a boring old sceptic. I love reading about this stuff and I am sure some of you are right, but I am a little hesitant to believe.  
Date: 8/31/2002 6:20:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    ACTUALLY-Ed & Lorraine DID prove the existance of Ghosts, in a court of law, in 1989. The trial was in Conn, I believe, and they proved (testifed) that spirits, ghosts, and possesion were REAL. The court found their testamony "fully credible". I will have to find the link, for that case.  
Date: 9/2/2002 3:25:00 PM  From Authorid: 60162    that would be great... I would love to read it.   
Date: 9/2/2002 6:56:00 PM  ( From Author ) From Authorid: 15070    I believe the book, based on the haunting & the court apperence was called "The Devil In Conn.", or "A Haunting In Conn.", something like that. They bad news, is most of Ed & Lorraines books are out-of-print now. I had all their books, now gone, and I regret that.
