Unwrapping the past, one presence at a time. On Facebook: The P.A.S.T. is Present

The P.A.S.T. is Present Paranormal Team

Mission Statement

The P.A.S.T. is Present seeks the truth in paranormal along with spirit claims by using commonly practiced scientific means to find or eliminate possible evidence of the paranormal and spirit realms of existence.  The findings of our paranormal investigations are analyzed to the extent of trying to disprove any findings prior to classifying activity as unknown or paranormal.  We do so by ruling out all naturally ocuring phenomenon, human influence, environmental factors and scientific based processes so any remaining explanation is scientifically inexplicable or paranormal in nature.

What we do...

The P.A.S.T. is Present is an acronym for Paranormal and Spirit Team.  We provide free and confidential investigations and community presentations upon request.  We are based in Yakima, Washington, but we deal with paranormal related cases and educational forums across the northwest.  We have both teen and adult memberships. Our team is comprised of individuals who volunteer and dedicate their time to the research, study, investigation and analysis of the paranormal.  Our team members are very diverse in nature, allowing our team to pull from a very wide spectrum of knowledge and technical aspects, as well as investigations and theories surrounding the paranormal.  We dedicate our time to helping those experiencing potential paranormal activity and helping educate the public about the paranormal.  Our team takes great pride in communicating and working with other professional paranormal investigation teams across the United States.  It is only through such communication and work that the standards, understanding and knowledge of the paranormal can be adequatly analyzed, shared and accepted.

We are a Non-Profit Organization

All of the services we provide are FREE and our source of funding is based upon our members' yearly dues and donations received from special community events.  All monies collected are used to purchase new paranormal equipment, batteries and accesories.  All of our cases are considered confidential.
