Three Other Paranormal Activity Blogs
There are so many blogs out there and even using search engines like Google or Bing won’t necessarily bring the best of them to the front page. There are other ways to search the net, such as using WeFollow http://wefollow.com but still the task can be onerous (unless you enjoy surfing for sufing’s sake that is). Below is a short list of blogs that I enjoy following.
1. Dean Radin
Dr. Dean Radin is one of the parapsychologists to check out. He knows his stuff and he is well credentialed. Dean has a background in music and has degrees in electrical engineering and psychology. He has worked in advanced telecommunications and on a classified program for the US Government. He is one of the most respected parapscychologists around. See what you think at http://deanradin.blogspot.com
2. Julie Beischel
Julie also has a scientific background. She has a degree in pharmacology and toxicology, with minors in microbiology and immunology. Julie now specialises in the study of human consciousness, and in particular the continuation of consciousness after death. Julie has established the Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential in America and her work is highly regarded by othe parapsychologists. Visit Dr. Beischel’s blog at: http://drjuliebeischel.blogspot.com
3. Joseph McMoneagle
Joseph and his wife Mary (where have I heard those two names together before?) write a blog on intuitive intelligence. Nancy McMoneagle is an intuitive astrologer while John’s earlier career focused on intelligence – counter-terrorist, counter-intelligence operations, and remote intelligence-collection including repsonsibility for the research and development side of the STARGATE Project.

What are your Favourite Paranormal Blogs?
There are loads of blogs out there but they tend to be sensational. How do you like your paranormal blogs – serious and authoritative or irreverent and fun? Lets build a list below and see.
I’m not partial to the word “paranormal.” I think when people hear it they think of TV shows like Ghosthunters where things go bump in the night. I honestly don’t think there is such a thing as the paranormal. I believe everything is very normal, it’s more that we can’t explain it yet with what we currently know scientifically.
I couldn’t agree more. Semantics was such an issue in my dissertation and even more so in my proposal writing for it (where I managed to avoid every word that had any spooky connotation – quite a feat).
I prefer the term paranormal to supernatural but I also realize that parapsychology and parapsychological are more accurate for my purposes. But, typing those 2 words all the time gets a bit much for me.
So, I’ve settled on the word paranormal.
I’m not sure where I stand with the media hype on the paranormal, as I feel that while it does a disservice in some ways it also maintains the profile of the subject area. Also, (like trying to get kids hooked on maths, or history or any other topic) I’m hoping that the masses, thru the media will bring pressure to bear for further academic research and funding of parapsychological research.
Maybe I’m just being naive Angela?
You must read a book called ” TALKING TO SPIRITS“.
It’s by Pumpi Moore-I think its about £7-Its on AMAZON. An amazing read.
Thank you for this reference Poja.
In scientific or academic discussion, the term apparitional experience is to be preferred to the term ghost in respect of the following points:
The term ghost implies that some element of the human being survives death and, at least under certain circumstances, can make itself perceptible to living human beings. There are other competing explanations of apparitional experiences.
Firsthand accounts of apparitional experiences differ in many respects from their fictional counterparts in literary or traditional ghost stories (see below).
The content of apparitional experiences includes living beings, both human and animal, and even inanimate objects.
Thank you for this.
There has been discussion elsewhere on the blog about the distinction between ghosts and spirits.
However, regarding your comment about competing explanations, I dont want to second guess what you mean so would like to know are you referring to the idea of death by degrees? That is, the physical body dies but other bodies may linger longer?
I think most people here would agree with your second point about the distinction between ‘real life’ experiences and fictional good-reads>
