    Gentle reminder: This thread is in the CDZ

    The human race has perhaps always had notions of the paranormal and/or supernatural. We find references in some of the earliest recorded histories in all known cultures. More recently, we have added notions of the extraterrestrial to those things we are curious about.

    Adding credibility to the notions is a growing body of people, many who seem to be quite intelligent, normal, and credible, who report encounters with paranormal or extraterrestial craft and/or beings.

    This could even qualify as a quasi-political thread as both the paranormal and the extraterrestrial could qualify as threats to human safety and/or national security and for various other reasons. Certainly the government has been operating radio telescopes for some time and continues to research reported UFO sightings, etc. Waste of time? Or are you happy with some of our resources being devoted to that?

    So what do you think? Yes? No? Maybe?

    Personal experiences, logic, reason, and credible recorded histories are appropriate here.

    I was not able to vote because one category is missing. "I believe there are some things that science has not explained yet."

    Like I've written previously, I'm still drawn on the paranormal i.e - ghosts and poltergeists. But I'm certain we aren't alone in the universe. And that at some point, before the dawn of man up until the present day, we've been either observed or visited by technologically advanced extraterrestrials. Nothing will sway me on that.

    Somehow religious people are exempt from criticism of their paranormal beliefs.

    This could be a great thread! Anyone listen to George Noory's Coast to Coast late night on the radio?

    You can still vote. There was no attempt to define WHAT a ghost or angel or exterrestial being, etc. is, so I don't imagine the names will change once science is able to explain them. :)

    Yes, when we were operating our business, I would be out and about keeping on site appointments during the day and then would do paper work or other activities into the wee hours of the morning many nights. Beginning at 11 p.m. mountain time, to keep me company (and awake), we used to get Art Bell that was a fascinating mix of the odd, strange, unexplained. And when Art handed the keys to Coast to Coast to George Noury and the weekend hosts, they brought a much different dimension but often just as interesting.

    It is one of those programs you have to take with a huge grain of salt and healthy skepticism--I'm sure the hosts do too--but some of the things they report are fascinating. And unexplainable.

    Somehow, you make less sense than the guy on the corner who is telling me that the government is controlling us through RADAR.
