Shadow people

What is a shadow person or shadow figure in the paranormal field? An unexplained black mass seen floating or moving along a certain path? An out of body expeirence? A ghost and nothing more special than that? A demon? An alien?

In my research I have come across all of these explainations as to what a shadow figure is. I had always thought a shadow figure was nothing more than a ghost that was in a black form. Perhaps not enough energy to manifest the greater details that an apparition is known to have. Perhaps the stage between the beginning manifestation stages and the later full bodied apparition manisfestation stage. This latter theory was another one recently suggested to me.

During my research I began thinking of another possiblity. Perhaps it is the imprint of an energy stock in this field known as Earth. Perhaps, much like a residual haunting, where a noise is repeated at the same time, in the same place, doing the same thing. Perhaps these shadow figures are remnants of someone's energy left on the Earth. Without spirit, without soul it is nothing more than a burned image on a computer screen.

With all of that being said a question that pops in my head as a PTR host would be, would shadow figures exist without an afterlife. If it is the mere energy imprint then we would not need afterlife for this energy. Most definitions I show seemed to steer clear of saying it was a human spirit. As an inhuman spirit would that make it a demon? I tend to think not. From my expierence, demonic is rare, very rare and shadow figures are not rare at all. So the question remains....does a shadow figure have spirit? Is it a left spirit seeking to complete unfinished business?

PTR will be discussing shadow people on Saturday, Feb 27 at 11pm. We want to hear some of your opinions, thoughts, and views to help us better formulate questions. This can be your theory of what a shadow figure is, to what afterlife has to do with them being here. Then tune in and hear the answers from Thomas Durant!

Coming up on Feb. 20th

Febraury 20th we will be talking to atheist and founder of RagingRev.com, Matt Oxley on ParaTrinity Rado. This discussion is sure to be full of debates and "heavy" subjects. With this show in my mind and a few things we hope to discuss here is what I ask you.

Can an athiest beleive in ghosts? A ghost by definition (one of many) is The spirit of a dead person, especially one believed to appear in bodily likeness to living persons or to haunt former habitats (thefreedictionary.com). My understanding is most atheists do not beleive in an afterlife. In order for this said spirit to remain and walk the earth after death there needs to be some sort of afterlife.

Can a person beleive they/have a spirit without beleiving in God? From a Catholic view the spirit was given to us as we were made in God's likeness - Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. This is what has given us/me a spirit; therefore without God, without religion is their a spirit?

Perhaps these questions have no REAL answer, and definately no right or wrong answer, but we want to hear your view or opinion. We will be delving deep into this with an atheist on Saturday, but this will give you some time to think about it and formulate your opinion and questions. Then come join us at asprn.com and chat and ask your questions!

Welcome to ParaTrinity Radio blog....a brief introduction

ParaTrinity Radio has been on the air now for about a month and a half. Every show delves into how paranormal and religion relate (or don't). Some may think this can be a very touchy, controversial subject, however, we feel it is something that needs to be said. It is something we all need to consider when going out into the field searching for those entities. If there is a God, which I fully believe there is, then what does that mean we communicate with every time we go out there? When you sit and think about this, it is really kind of terrifying, yet beautiful, to consider what we are communicating with in this field.

This blog is created in hopes to bring some of these matters to the forefront and help you better understand the dangers and miracles of this field. We are speaking from opinion and basing some facts on what we have learned on our radio show from talking to "professionals". We are not demonologists, priests, or self-proclaimed experts. We are just two Christians who find the paranormal fascinating. And much like in religion, we have a great deal of questions to find answers too in the paranormal. Is God who to find these answers through? Perhaps, but we are not writing this as a preach to God, a "Go now and worship" blog. This is something for informative, educational and entertainment only. We would like to hear your comments, views, opinions, and any other input you may have. If you don't want to post publicly on this forum email us at info@paratrinityradio.com.

This blog is an open floor discussion/debate. We only ask two things: keep it clean for all ages (no cussing), and be respectful to anyone that posts. Disagreement is allowed, slandering and degrading is not. We will happily delete your post if we feel you are out of line.

ParaTrinity Radio is a live radio show airing every Saturday night at 11pm EST in Studio B of the www.asprn.com network. Come over and listening and hear more abut these subjects. And enjoy this blog!
