How's it going my gumdrops? How creepy was the theme song from The Amityville Horror Soundtrack, that I shared yesterday? If you ask yours truly, I feel haunted houses and paranormal activity are more terrifying than monsters, unless they are Gremlins.
We all know those cynics, who don't believe in ghosts or much of anything that can't be proven based on science. This may be difficult to believe, but science is NOT the answer to everything.
A few years ago, I started reminiscing about the Scooby-Doo franchise. In fact, I happened to be watching a Scooby-Doo TV series. As an adult, I realized just how incredibly cynical the overall franchise has been over the last 48 years.
Have you EVER noticed that every time the characters on Scooby-Doo had to solve supernatural and paranormal related mysteries, there were ALWAYS arguments to disprove that supernatural and paranormal phenomena existed?
Growing up as a little girl during the 1980's and '90s, I was annoyed by the cynicism. I understand, that CBS and Hanna-Barbera wanted to appease the parent watch groups, in order to prevent more protesting during the '60s, but they actually helped promote and validated cynicism.
I will even go as far as saying that CBS, Hanna-Barbera, and other companies caused the last 3-4 generations to grow up to be cynics, who have to disprove EVERYTHING, that doesn't fit their narrative about something being SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN.
Do you remember Charles Riborg Mann and George Ransom Twiss' book Physics? In the 1910 book, they asked: "When a tree falls in a lonely forest, and no animal is near by to hear it, does it make a sound? Why?"
The question was supposed to be about physical point of view. However, I believe it was a question made to validate and promote other people's denial of something OR someone's existence with more cynicism. This can ESPECIALLY be said about those, who refuse to acknowledge supernatural and paranormal phenomena.
Let's use the Scooby-Doo franchise as an example. In the original cartoon from 1969, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? Fred, Velma, and DAPHNE did NOT believe in ghosts and monsters. All 3 characters were ALWAYS validated by the end of each episode.
You may be saying, "Anna, you're overthinking this. It's only a cartoon." Scooby-Doo may be a cartoon, but it is a cartoon that has hidden messages in it. You really have to read between the lines so to say and pay close attention to the underlying messages.
You could argue that Hanna-Barbera did not want to scare children with supernatural and paranormal phenomena. At the same time, the characters and the writing in this cartoon appear as being cynical.
Anyone who believes in supernatural and paranormal phenomena are viewed as being crazy and delusional because cynics bought into George Berkeley's philosophical lies about "immaterialism."
Immaterialism in philosophy is basically the metaphysical denial of the existence of the material world. In other words, it's just your imagination; It's ALL in your head.
If some have not learned much of anything in today's blog, you should at least realize that just because you did not see or hear something or someone, does not mean that something or someone does NOT exist.
This next creepy story is another true pizza delivery story. It comes from YouTube's Mr. Nightmare. Mr. Nightmare's story was turned into an animation by Llama Arts.
In this paranormal story, Mr. Nightmare does his pizza delivery to a hidden house near the woods at night. Anyway, here is his true pizza delivery story for today's Cartoon Sunday. Let the cynicism begin!
