Are You Serious?

Are You Serious?

Now that’s a question I get quite a bit. Thrown from a distance, and usually from the safety and anonymity of the computer screen. Well, yes actually, we are quite serious. Because ghosts have very little definitive evidence for their actual existence, it might be easy for some to just

Paranormal New Zealand is the home of Haunted Auckland, a Paranormal Investigation and Research group.

paranormal (păr′ə-nôr′məl) adjective.
Paranormal events are purported phenomena described in popular culture, folk, and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described as beyond normal experience or scientific explanation. The term ‘paranormal’ has existed in the English language since at least 1920. The word consists of two parts: ‘para’ and ‘normal’. The definition implies that the scientific explanation of the world around us is ‘normal’ and anything that is above, beyond, or contrary to that is ‘para’.  

We are a dedicated group of paranormal enthusiasts, all having one thing in common – a passion and drive to find out as much as humanly possible about the mysterious and unknown field that is the Paranormal, as well as documenting New Zealand’s historical buildings and landmarks in their current state.
