Evening with John Tenney

Saturday night I was privileged to meet and spend some time with John Tenney, a paranormal researcher and lecturer. He has appeared on such shows as Paranormal State, and spent the last twenty years or so researching anything thought to be out of the norm. Over 45,000 people have attended his lectures over the past two decades. He was a researcher for the long running television series Unsolved Mysteries and has extensive knowledge concerning conspiracy theories, cryptozoology, and UFO phenomenon.

What fun!! John Tenney met all of my expectations, and more. Not one of those guys that hangs out in his room until the lecture, he loves to meet people and talk, sharing his thoughts and observations. After the lecture, John sat around in the restaurant/bar area for hours just tossing around ideas to those who had questions.

I love his answer when asked does he believe in ghosts. Despite the fact that he has had experiences that would make even the biggest skeptic a believer, John Tenney maintains that he doesn't believe in anything. Believing in something causes any other possibility to be out of the question. When you believe beyond the shadow of a doubt that you are right about something, then you cease to question. You cease to seek for answers. You cease to look for other possibilities. Question everything, he suggests.

There is always someone out there who has an idea or a philosophy that they are trying to get you to latch onto. There is always someone who is changing facts so that they can manipulate your feelings or beliefs. The truth is, nothing is black and white. For centuries we have believed philosophies just because we did not know that there was any other way to think. The most important thing we can do is educate ourselves, ask questions. Don't believe something just because I say it is so or someone who has some clout says it is so or every generation for the past thousand years says it is so.

Is an orb a camera flare or is it a spirit? Are there UFO's? Are ouija boards evil? These are some of the subjects John touched on in his lecture. If you would like to hear his take on these or some of the other subjects regarding paranormal activities, you can purchase his books or check out his website, or even find him at different events around the country.
