Dr. Barry Taff On Coast To Coast: Poltergeists, The Entity, & UFOs

Submitted by on March 9, 2013 – 7:46 AM5 Comments | 3,440 views


My good friend Dr. Barry Taff  (doctorate in Psychophysiology with a minor in Biomedical Engineering) was on Coast To Coast with George Noory last night. If you missed the interview, you gotta listen to it here.

Most of us in the paranormal realm have either heard or read of Dr. Taff’s work. His work and dedication has put Parapsychology on the map. Especially on the subjects of Poltergeist, Cognitive, and Psychokinetic energy. Over the years our friendship has grown and I’m grateful to have learned so much from Dr. Taff. However, all of his recognition came with a heavy price that he had to pay.

Marginalized by mainstream science, Dr. Taff’s work has been heavily scrutinized by many and given very little scientific recognition. Just when they were in the brink of a major breakthrough in the 1970s, UCLA pulled the rugged under his feet (and the feet of his team) and decided to suspend all funding for research.  Cases like the San Pedro Haunting and Doris Bither’s case fell by the wayside. Read more about that here.

Dr. Taff has participated in a plethora of projects both civilian and government operated.On C2C with Noory, Dr. Taff talks about Poltergeist, hauntings, UFOs, and government conspiracies.

Listen carefully starting at the 26:00 minute mark as he gives GhostTheory.com a shout out!

If you haven’t read his book ‘Aliens above, Ghosts below‘ I highly recommend it.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

    “Marginalized by mainstream science” . . .

    reminds me of Harley Rutledge (d. 2006), physics professor at Southeast Missouri State University.

    He wrote “Project Identification: The first Scientific Study of UFO Phenomena”
    – a work worth reading on the topic of UFO’s.

    Never fun being on the cutting edge of knowledge.

    Has Dr. Taff gotten his eye surgery yet? I haven’t seen any follow ups on that.

  • ghosttheory

    I should have posted one. My bad.

    Dr. Taff was able to raise enough for the surgery. His vision is back on both eyes. Thanks to all who contributed.

    Never heard of it. I’ll look for the book. Sounds interesting.

  • David Eggleston

    Good news! I’m happy for him.
