The untold account of the countless Americans who believe in, or personally experience, paranormal phenomena such as ghosts, Bigfoot, UFOs and psychics Given the popularity of television shows such as Finding Bigfoot, Ghost Hunters, Supernatural, and American Horror Story, there seems to be an insatiable public hunger for mystical happenings. But who believes in the paranormal? Based on extensive research and their own unique personal experiences, Christopher Bader, Joseph Baker and Carson Mencken reveal that a significant number of Americans hold these beliefs, and that for better or worse, we undoubtedly live in a paranormal America. Readers will join the authors as they participate in psychic and palm readings, and have their auras photographed, join a Bigfoot hunt, follow a group of celebrity ghost hunters as they investigate claims of a haunted classroom, and visit a support group for alien abductees. The second edition includes new and updated research based on findings from the Baylor Religion survey regarding America’s relationship with the paranormal. Drawing on these diverse and compelling sources of data, the book offers an engaging account of the social, personal, and statistical stories of American paranormal beliefs and experiences. It examines topics such as the popularity of paranormal beliefs in the United States, the ways in which these beliefs relate to each other, whether paranormal beliefs will give rise to a new religion, and how believers in the paranormal differ from “average” Americans. Brimming with fascinating anecdotes and provocative new findings, Paranormal America offers an entertaining yet authoritative examination of a growing segment of American religious culture.

Home to numerous tribal reservations that survived the land run that swept around them, Shawnee stands at an intersection of worlds. For travelers of the Wild West, crossing over into Oklahoma Territory meant more than crossing a state line. "Stop for twenty minutes and see a man killed," stagecoach drivers warned visitors to Shawnee's treacherous saloons. The oil boom of the 1920s brought a wave of wealth that only encouraged nefarious activity. Shawnee's quiet present may belie its fevered past, but the spirits of former gunslingers, prostitutes and everyday folk still live on. From strange sounds at the old Sacred Heart Mission to specters roaming the halls of the luxurious Aldridge Hotel, Tanya McCoy and Jeff Provine provide an introduction to Shawnee's haunted past.

Real Life X Files

Real-Life X-Files: Investigating the Paranormal examines the cases of over forty paranormal mysteries.

Author: Joe Nickell

Publisher: University Press of Kentucky

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

Page: 336

View: 745

As a former private investigator and forensic writer, Joe Nickell has spent much of his career identifying forged documents, working undercover to infiltrate theft rings, and investigating questioned deaths. Now he turns his considerable investigative skill toward the paranormal, researching the most well-known and mysterious phenomena all over the world -- spontaneous human combustion, UFO visitations, auras, electronic poltergeists, and many, many more -- with an eye toward solving these mysteries rather than promoting or dismissing them. Real-Life X-Files: Investigating the Paranormal examines the cases of over forty paranormal mysteries. Using a hands-on approach, Nickell visits the scene of the so-called unexplainable activity whenever possible and attempts to physically duplicate the miraculous. Whether he's inflicting stigmata on himself or recreating the liquefying blood of Saint Januarius, Nickell does whatever necessary to eliminate the probable before considering the supernatural. What is left is that much more fascinating. Nickell reports on familiar legends from American history such as the supernatural events surrounding Abraham Lincoln's death and the supposed crash landing of an alien spacecraft near Roswell, New Mexico. He closely examines claims of the miraculous, from rose petals bearing the likeness of Jesus to photographs of a "golden door" to heaven. Controversial mysteries such as clairvoyance and "spirit painting," haunted places, and freaks of nature are just a few of the many topics covered. Suspenseful, engrossing, funny, and grounded in scientific methodology, Real-Life X-Files provides real explanations for the "paranormal" activities that have intrigued human beings for centuries.

Centered in New York's Hudson River Valley are a series of mysterious stone chambers and carved standing megaliths that have perplexed researchers of the paranormal and archaeologist for decades. What are the strange carvings and language written on the chambers walls? Why are these structures built over areas of negative magnetic anomalies? Scientists and historians tend to write off these structures as colonial root cellars, but authors Philip Imbrogno and Marianne Horrigan, who have researched and studied the chambers for more than ten years, believe they are evidence that the East Coast of North America was explored by people from Europe centuries before Columbus. The ancient people who constructed these chambers may have been Druids who came to the new world in search of a gateway to the world of the gods. The paranormal and UFO phenomena associated with these stone chambers suggest they may indeed be windows to another reality. "The book is a must read for anyone who is interested in the paranormal, UFOs, and ancient archeology. If you like a real life mystery, then this book will keep you enthralled from cover to cover." -- Greenwich Time Philip Imbrogno has been investigating and researching paranormal phenomena for more than thirty years. He has a BS degree in astronomy from the University of Texas, a BS degree in Earth Science from Northeastern/ Boston College, and a Masters degree in chemistry from M.I.T. He is has been a science educator for the past 25 years and has authored countless magazine articles, numerous newspaper columns, and several books on science and the paranormal. Marianne Horrigan is a paranormal researcher whose articles have appeared in Fate and UFO Universe. She has been involved in research projects at the Bowman Observatory in Greenwich, Connecticut, and has co-authored several books with Philip Imbrogno.
