give credit where it's due
The fact that this web site is oriented around controversial and, for the most part, unexplainable or things that have not been able to be fully or satisfactorily explained, it would seem to naturally follow that this type of material, as a whole, raises more questions than gives answers. The questions that arise are those that could be fundamental to each person's existence including the whys, hows, whats and all the other questions that, if true, strange and unexplainable events, experiences, things, etc. could help to shed light on. The questions may not have answers. They may have answers that are more wild (yet truthful) than we could ever imagine or the answers may be relatively simple or more simpler and less extraordinary than we might have imagined. Perhaps, even, in time, science will be able to explain all or most of this stuff or perhaps there will be, at least, a time when things of this nature are studied without worrying about tradition and (near religious) adherence to accepted theories.
On this page, we wish to show you some things that are real, to our knowledge, yet are still anomalous and unexplained. Some will probably be things you just never heard of before or imagined was true, but may not seem that paranormal. The things on this page are varied in their respective classifications. Like most of the things on the paranormal page, they are not limited to any one type of phenomena. The things on this page include things that can be studied, like the Star Child skull, the handprint in cell 17, and the Coral Castle, and/or things that have been researched extensively, and/or things with scientific analysis or are in relation to science.

Most likely, unless you research any of this type of stuff, you will not have heard of most of the things on this page before. This page exists to show you that things do exist that seem paranormal. As we've stated, to the best of our knowledge, the things on this page are real and/or true (factual), but we can not make any personal claims as to such. The things on this page are presented for you to learn about and perhaps to show you something that you were not aware of before. Even if you don't take them seriously, hopefully, you will find them interesting or entertaining. If you wish to express an opinion, no matter what it is, please  
interact   and let us know. Also, if you have something that you may wish to add, please tell us of that as well.

scientists' transcendent
("spiritual," "mystical," "psychic") experiences


web site: The Archive of Scientists' Transcendent Experiences (TASTE)
http://www.issc-taste.org/index.shtml

from the TASTE site: 
"The TASTE project is an attempt to work toward rectifying this strange, scientistic situation where too many people are forced to deny or repress parts of their own human experience. These Archives are an online journal performing the essential scientific function of full and honest communication of data in this badly neglected area." (taken from "
Introduction to TASTE" - /main/introduction.shtml)

"It (the web site) lets scientists express these experiences in a safe space, collects and shares them to debunk the stereotype that "real" scientists don't have "spiritual" or "mystical" or "psychic" experiences, builds a database of these experiences for future research, and helps us understand the full range of the human mind." (taken from the main page -
/index.shtml)

Mexican military (Air Force) records UFOs on tape and radar (w/ eyewitness pilot testimony)
**by mentioning this, this site is not endorsing one specific idea regarding the nature of these things, whether they are alien / extra-terrestrial in origin or are some kind of light phenomena or something else**

In March of 2004, the Mexican military had an encounter with some unidentified flying objects. Air Force pilots caught '11 bright, rapidly moving objects in the skies' over southern Campeche state. "The tape was filmed March 5 by air force pilots using a video camera equipped with an infrared lens."

the handprint in cell 17

a handprint, supposedly left by Alexander Campbell who was (as he claims) falsely accused of murder, remains in cell 17 and has never been successfully removed from the wall despite attempts to do so by bieng washed, dug out, plastered over, painted over or by completely destroying that wall and building a new one. the building is the Old Jail Museum in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania (PA) (used to be Mauch Chunk and East Mauch Chunk) in Carbon County in the Pocono Mountains.

Coral Castle (Rock Gate Park)

C
oral Castle is located in Homestead, Florida (FL). this "monument to unrequited love" contains many blocks of coral, many of which weigh over 5 tons. the whole "castle," as far as is known, was built by one man, Ed Leedskalnin, in a time period of around 20 years, who weighed about 100 pounds and was just a little over 5 feet in height.

the entrance is a gate made from a single coral block which weighs 9 tons. this huge gate is approximately 80 inches wide, 92 inches tall, and 21 inches thick. it fits within a quarter of an inch of the walls on either side and pivots through an iron rod resting on an automobile gear. the enormous block balances so perfectly on its center of gravity that a visitor can easily push it open with one finger. another gate, a triangle, at the opposite wall, weighs three tons.

the Star Child skull
**by mentioning this, this site is not necessarily endorsing any of the ideas that following people and/or web sites are proposing, mainly that of it having any alien / extra-terrestrial origin**


AN ANALYSIS OF A UNIQUE SKULL OF UNCERTAIN ORIGIN

this skull is interesting in and of itself. It would, if the data collected is accepted to be real, evidence of a non-human, yet humanoid biological being.
further it could, more speculatively, show succesful reproduction between a human and a non-human,
yet humanoid being which resulted in a hybrid offspring of the two.


what is anomalous and hence, paranormal (unexplained) about this is that:

           it seems not to be fully human, yet it obviously shares many traits enough with humans for us to know that it is, at least, partly human          


  the data and information thus far suggests:

>>>  the traits which make this thing anomalous could not have come from:
        a genetic defect (inherited), a congenital deformation (birth defect), inflicted deformity (cranial binding)

the web site is filled with data pertaining to this skull and another (human female) found along side it.  to learn more, click the web site link above.
