Question Everything Coalition Button
When you go above and beyond with your evidence, whilst highlighting the obvious and accepting actual proven explanations based in science and research...
With so many paranormal teams out there, how do you know which ones are taking the extra step to provide honesty, blanketed in innovation and peer review, to display that extra level of intelligence by not being afraid to question everything. Your team is under a microscope. With social platforms and massive amounts of garbage evidence being posted every day, now is the time to take a stand. We are looking for paranormal teams who are taking the field seriously by not using debunked gadgets (as seen on television), not using metaphysical objects like Ouija boards, and not centering their investigations around "feelings" from psychics and frauds. RCPS is looking to start a revolution in the paranormal field, calling for more reality and less stupidity.
It isn't "Paranormal Unity". It is solid peer review of evidence and collaboration. To educate and be educated based on actual data. We are not going to pat each other on the back for another "orb" photograph or an obvious camera strap vortex. We are going to discuss equipment and advanced gear, technology, methodology, and realistc ways to debunk and help the clients.
If your paranormal team is setting a standard by questioning everything, apply for the coalition. The terms are as follows
Your paranormal team should go in to disprove a haunting using science and common sense. Exhaust all resources to find a solution to activity. Don't assume it is a ghost or spirit.
Know the Equipment
Knowing that certain types of equipment is a waste of time in the field. KII meters, Frank's Box, dowsing rods, and many other devices are just not suitable for a reasonable investigation. Educating your team on how to use the gear and the technology behind it is key before having them use a poor device in the field. What we mean by knowing the device, we mean EVERYTHING about it.
Not having a stampede running through a location without any procedures in place. Have a game plan enforced and stick to it. Otherwise, your evidence will be highly contaminated. Audio, video, etc, will be a complete waste if you have too many people in your location or making noise during the investigation. It shouldn't be thrill seeking or an evening of shenanigans. Ever wonder why the mainstream scientific community does not take the field of paranormal research seriously? Just watch paranormal television...
Your team should be free from violent criminals and sex offenders. Common sense. If you need to question this one, and the team you are on is full of them, time to find a new team to join.
Being open to criticism is paramount to finding real answers to the paranormal. In most cases, you WILL be shot down with evidence presented. It's probably something very explainable and not a ghost. Being open to peer review by others without being defensive is something you need to be prepared for.
Being in the field costs money. This includes how you present your team to the areas you investigate and community. By using a free website hosting service, or a simple facebook page, you are not taking it to that "extra" level to setting the bar. Keeping your website clean and professional in appearance is important. Try to avoid creepy background music and cheesy animated ghost .gifs from littering your website. Also, avoiding things such as GAC (Ghost Adventure Crew) buttons and other similar associations will bring your credibility way up. Remember, it is about keeping it real.
If you and your team are coalition material and you are ready to set the bar to the highest level, follow the steps below...
