Independent Investigators Group Meeting

We are trying to become an affiliate of the Independent Investigators Group. A group that provides a $50,000 prize for anyone who can give proof of extraordinary claims under reasonable experimental conditions. We are interested in becoming investigators for anyone applying for the prize money locally. First, however, IIG headquarters wants to see if there is enough local interest. If there are enough people who want to be involved in investigations, IIG will send a representative to give some training in the investigative method.

It is important to understand that the goal of the group is not to attack anyone personally or to humiliate believers of extra ordinary claims. If someone were to win the prize it would not conclusively prove that such an extra ordinary claim is real but would open up an interesting area for further investigation. Similarly, the fact that someone fails to pass the challenge doesn't completely prove that their claim is false, just that they have failed to demonstrate it adequately. What we want to showcase is the method, not the conclusions.

If you know anyone else who is not is not part of this group who might be interested please send them a link to this event.

    Is my photo sufficient evidence that I am a ghost? Am I eligible for the prize? Unmarked bills please.

    I would enjoy this very much but live in Apex and am having car issues that prevent me from making the trip to the library. Perhaps I can make the next meeting.
