Proof Posi+ive:

The Sci-Fi Channel Series Villisca Episode

The new Sci-Fi Channel series Proof Positive premieres on Wednesday, October 6, 2004.  It appears to be a one-hour show that will examine "evidence of the paranormal."

In the spring of 2004, we were contacted by a producer of the show and invited to participate with an episode related to the Villisca axe murders.  We declined based on our previous experience with the Fox Family Channel.  The producer we spoke with did not produce the Villisca episode for Fox in 2000, but he indicated he did work on the "Scariest Places on Earth" series in some capacity.

The Villisca episode is now scheduled to air on November 3, 2004.

They appear to have assembled a credible list of experts from a variety of scientific and academic fields who, they say, will declare one of three weekly segments to be "proof positive" of paranormal phenomena.  We always hope for the best with these national broadcasts, but historical fact is often a victim of a need to entertain rather than inform.

We will post our reaction to the new series and the Villisca episode here:

We just viewed the Proof Positive episode containing the segment on the "haunted" Villisca axe murder house.  We were pleased to see that the scientific analysis of the so-called orbs was declared "proof negative."  According to the Sci-Fi Channel, the images captured on videotape do not constitute proof of ghosts or a "haunting" at the Villisca Axe Murder House.  These findings support what we and everyone who has lived in the house between 1936 and 1993 have been saying all along.
