There’s several arguments floating around about this and I’m not going to pick a side, where is the fun in that anyway? It’s for other people to decide what they believe after all.
So what is EVP? Some believe that they are the voices of the dead talking back in a format where we cannot always hear it in the natural scope. Some feel that it is a way to communicate with lost/angry spirits.
Others feel that it is simply a case of Apophenia, our brains fill in the noises to sound like something, we want to make something from a series of noises and random patterns. Pareidolia is one of the most cited arguments about this being the case.
Photography and sound have been part of the study of the afterlife for seemingly as long as they have existed. Human beings are desperate to hear and see proof that this is not the end, religion is not the way to sate the mind, for so many now scientific proof over faith is the only way forwards.
Electronic Voice Phenomena may be the brain filling in the bits we want to hear, but how is it then some people use this by asking questions and seemingly getting relevant answers, names, facts or findings they can later go on to verify? Was it a big set up from the start or proof that a spirit is genuinely able to communicate?
Scepticism seems high on the scale with the voices of some being just too clear for it to seem like the voice of the dead coming back. But how does a deadman sound to know the reality? With floods of supposed EVP on youtube and other simple engine searches can it really be something that is proven or not? Also it would appear that attempts to recreate these recordings do not seem to produce anything under scientific controlled conditions.
Allow me to present some of the ones I have found and you can make up your mind.
