Take Heart; ParaNexus is So Needed

It would seem that the the anomalous research field has comparatively few serious and grounded researchers and spokespersons. The field at large attracts some of the most far-out-on-the-fringe people imaginable--many with seemingly high credibility. Take this recent news story for example:


BAS official: Aliens are among us
http://sofiaecho.com/2009/11/23/819575_bas-official-aliens-are-among-us

Aliens live on Earth and are in constant communication and interaction with us, Bulgarian scientists told Novinar, quoted by Dnes on November 23 2009.

Responsible Research: “Experts” in the Paranormal Field?
Written on October 20, 2009, 01:55:17 PM by Doug Kelley

“There are no experts on the paranormal” is a common sentiment among those involved in paranormal research, most notably among prominent names in the ghost hunter segment of the field.

Responsible Research: Separating Paranormal Fact from Fiction
Written on September 28, 2009, 03:03:34 PM by Doug Kelley

 

MythsEven though I have been outspoken in my articles and on ParaNexus Universe Radio, I am not a paranormal debunker or a paranormal negativist (and no, I don’t play one on TV). I am a serious anomalous researcher who has observed a growing number of websites and media stories featuring photos and videos of so-called paranormal phenomena that is dubious at best, and fabricated at worst. I am perplexed at the sheer number of paranormal hobbyists who post misidentified natural phenomena as paranormal in nature, and worse yet, who promote fear in others—especially their clients—and end up doing more harm than good.

Whether we like it or not, Internet sites such as YouTube can exert a powerful force in shaping public opinion regarding paranormal phenomena, and serious researchers have a responsibility to mitigate...
