In her relentless quest for the truth, alien abductee Dana Redfield breaks new ground in The ET-Human Link, a book that probes new depths of personal experience as well as forbidden knowledge and history. From Atlantis, to biblical and American Native legends, to “other world” memories, Redfield shows a picture of alien abduction like no other. She explores the formidable terrain of human origins, DNA, consciousness, reincarnation, and theories about evolution of the soul, daring to propose a profound purpose behind the UFO presence. Presenting her theories with the verve, wit, and often lyrical tone of her writing, Redfield draws us into the metaphorical channel between life and right hemispheres, between mind links and “metafractals” – connections between metaphors, events, and experiences – to share her vision of the “golden children” we are becoming. From the author of "Summoned: Encounters with Alien Intelligence"Redfield’s in-depth knowledge of the alien abduction phenomenon blended with personal experience, startling insight, and characteristic humorOpens the door to new theories about the purpose and duration of extraterrestrial interventionA compelling work on a topic that may redefine humankind’s perception of ourselves, our history, and the universe we live in

In Beyond Belief: Skepticism, Science and the Paranormal Martin Bridgstock provides an integrated understanding of what an evidence-based approach to the paranormal - a skeptical approach - involves, and why it is necessary.
Author: Martin Bridgstock
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Whether ghosts, astrology or ESP, up to 80 per cent of the population believes in one or more aspects of the paranormal. Such beliefs are entertaining, and it is tempting to think of them as harmless. However, there is mounting evidence that paranormal beliefs can be dangerous - cases of children dying because parents rejected orthodox medicine in favour of alternative remedies, and 'psychics' who trade on the grief of the bereaved for personal profit and gain. Expenditure on the paranormal runs into billions of dollars each year. In Beyond Belief: Skepticism, Science and the Paranormal Martin Bridgstock provides an integrated understanding of what an evidence-based approach to the paranormal - a skeptical approach - involves, and why it is necessary. Bridgstock does not set out to show that all paranormal claims are necessarily false, but he does suggest that we all need the analytical ability and critical thinking skills to seek and assess the evidence for paranormal claims.
