Earthquake Lights – Strange But True??
A new study provides more evidence that Earthquakes can cause strange lights to appear along faults. Scientists are unsure as to the precise cause of these lights but hypothesize it may be due to electrical current generated from the shifting plates.
There have long been eyewitness accounts of this phenomenon, some of them possibly attributed to UFO’s. There are two lessons here:
1. Believers need to stop claiming every strange occurrence is related to alien visitation or ghosts, there may be a science-based explanation. We must with-hold judgement and investigate the claim.
2. Critics need to start recognizing the value of eyewitnesses and the study of the paranormal. If scientists actually investigated these claims we could have developed an understanding of this phenomenon sooner. Who knows what else could be discovered by actually investigating claims of the paranormal.
