Is there a difference between a ghostologist and a ghost hunter?
Very good, your right. Ghostology is the study and research of spiritual paranormal phenomena. Ghost hunters are field investigators that search for evidence of para-spiritual activity. I read somewhere that some ghostologists don't like to be called ghost hunters. But they can be one in the same. Ghostologists can do ghost hunting and ghost hunters can study ghostology. They can be the same person. I think It depends on the individual investigator, on what they preferred to be called.Hmm, interesting question...
I suppose one could be called a ghost hunter by simply looking for and/or trying to communicate with ghosts, whereas the term "ology" by definition means "a subject of study; a branch of knowledge". So I would assume a ghostologist would be a person well-versed in the subject of ghosts.
