“The word “belief” is a difficult thing for me. I don’t believe. I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis. Either I know a thing, and then I know it – I don’t need to believe it.” — Carl Jung

Paranormal Portals was created for the curious in us all. It is a continually growing library of articles and resources, taken from different perspectives, to assist you in your personal journey to understanding the unexplained.

The paranormal field has been studied for all of history and, though the “experts” will tell you differently, we are really no closer to finding that ultimate truth than when we were still shaking our fists at the moon and painting animal gods on cave walls.

Beware those “experts” who give you all the answers, marching you down their path of certainty, creating doubt in your own conclusions. No one has all the answers, and most don’t even know all the questions, and if they tell you they do, smile and walk the other way. Many well-meaning enthusiasts become bogged down in ego or fantasy, and mistake patterns in evidence for reality of phenomenon.

Belief is not fact, and in order to see the contrast we must keep an open mind. We must listen to all sides, weigh the evidence, compare the differences, consider the sources, and come up with our own conclusions. If you are on the right path you will see that the more you know, the more you really don’t know.

I am not a skeptic, nor am I a believer. I am on a quest for the truth, whether that truth be normal or paranormal. To be honest, most of the time the solution resides in the realm of the normal, but it is that rare phenomenon that cannot be explained in normal terms that keeps me exploring and curious.

If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”  Albert Einstein
