“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

When a Child Feels Haunted

When a child first enters into this world, they are far more sensitive to the five senses, for them everything is heightened, everything is new, and everything is experienced. Their undeveloped brains do not fully mature until they reach their late teens. Their eyes are so much more sensitive to light, that researchers believe they […]

The Lincoln Kennedy Connection

For many decades now there have been eerie similarities noted between Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. Certainly both men are regarded as two of our most beloved and most famous presidents, but the similarities go far beyond that. Though we are all familiar with the more popular similarities between these two, what you […]

Halloween Origins

Since Halloween is fast approaching and I just realized this site has no Halloween pages, and what is a paranormal site without at least one Halloween article? www.novareinna.com supplied the information, thanks to them! It is believed that the origins of Halloween may probably be found in an ancient pre-Christian festival which honored the dead. […]

Apocalypse Not: Why You Shouldn’t Worry About End Times

When the sun rises on December 22, as it surely will, do not expect apologies or even a rethink. No matter how often apocalyptic predictions fail to come true, another one soon arrives. And the prophets of apocalypse always draw a following—from the 100,000 Millerites who took to the hills in 1843, awaiting the end […]

When Are Men In Black Not MIB?

Written by Nick Redfern for www.mysteriousuniverse.com While I am absolutely convinced that many – indeed the vast majority – of all Men in Black incidents have a basis in reality (although what kind of reality is most certainly very much open to question!), certainly not all MIB can be considered to have bizarre, mysterious, conspiratorial, […]

The Bigfoot/UFO Connection

In Wisconsin, eleven witnesses in two cars clearly saw a UFO in a field. When it shot into the air, they all saw a giant ape-like creature retreating into the nearby woods. In the summer of 1981, a family in Ohio discovered a 20″ long footprint in their woods. Afterwards, they began having a series […]
