PIHA was created specifically for paranormal investigations of historic sites and museums that have a history of paranormal activity.
PIHA is made up of a small group of experienced, dedicated paranormal investigators who have a passion for history and an interest in the phenomena of possible existence of paranormal activity. Our approach, equipment and procedures for paranormal investigating is primarily based on the use of technologically advanced electronic equipment and scientific logic in obtaining evidence of possible paranormal activity.
We have found that networking with local community leaders, historical societies, museums and registered historical sites, encourage the public to visit these locations and learn more about our great American History and possibly see a ghost along the way. We also encourage 2 or 3 of our clients to actually join our team of investigators and to actually participate in our paranormal investigation.
Whenever possible we encourage the media to publish stories and articles featuring our investigations and the museums and historical sites that we investigate. This process allows these communities and historic sites additional public exposure which in turn increases public interest in visiting these locations. Along with increased visitations comes an additional donation, both public and private, which helps to financially support these historically important sites and the dedicated people who run them.
The objective of PIHA is to create additional public interest in our nations fascinating history by means of obtaining evidence of possible paranormal activity. Once PIHA has conducted its investigation, we then evaluate any empirical data that we were able to obtain and publish our findings. Discernment and scrutiny must always be implemented whenever examining any evidence obtained that suggest the presence of possible paranormal activity. PIHA is not out to prove or disprove the existence of possible paranormal activity, but to obtain and publish any significant evidence collected at an investigation and let each individual decided for himself what to believe or not to believe.
While the validity of the existence of paranormal phenomena is controversial and debated passionately by both proponents and by skeptics, surveys are useful in determining the beliefs of people in regards to paranormal phenomena. One such survey of the beliefs of the general United States population regarding paranormal topics was conducted by the Gallup Organization in 2005. This survey polled about one thousand people, and found that nearly 75 percent of them believed in some form of paranormal phenomena and 27 percent did not believe in any.
