8 Eminent Scientists Who Believe(d) In the Paranormal. There is a long history of scientific inquiry into the paranormal. Most scientists won’t openly profess to a belief in the paranormal or supernatural for fear of professional ridicule. But that’s not always the case. Philosopher and psychologist William James was one of the first psychical researchers who worked on a variety of paranormal and mesmerist cases. Respected in his field, and still studied today, James remained deeply skeptical with regards to psychic powers and paranormal realities. Like Thomas Edison and Freeman Dyson, James can’t really be said to have been a paranormal believer, but all three of these men did devote considerable energy and resources into researching it….others followed up on their work and came to widely varied and controversial conclusions.Source: Oddee

10 Terrifying Monsters That (We Hope!) Don’t Exist. Nature is replete with wonder and terror in equal measure. Our planet is a veritable Eden of biodiversity, with huge tracts of its surface only now being explored for the first time… As more and more of these last, heretofore undiscovered, havens are unearthed, charted and catalogued, before being relentlessly laid bare at the feet of Human curiosity, we have to imagine what wonders might still be unearthed. …Equally, however, we should also worry about the terrors. The creatures that appear on this list, though fantastical and extremely unlikely to actually exist by all accounts, are all considered by significant numbers of people to be living, breathing animals. If these poor, fright-stricken souls are so certain that the monsters listed here actually do exist, how can you be so sure that they don’t? …And how genuinely terrifying would it be if they were really out there?Source: What Culture

Crowdfunding Sought for ‘Ghost-Detecting’ Computer Program.A man who believes he has developed a scientific way to detect ghosts and other paranormal entities in everyday photos and videos has launched a crowdfunding program to raise money for further development.According to a press release by ghost hunter Joe DiMare,“Many people believe in ghosts, but not many people have evidence to support their belief. Now with Hidden Intelligence Tracking (HIT), anyone can shoot a 30-second video and submit it to have minor changes in light and motion amplified to reveal evidence of the paranormal.
