Hi Guys,

Now before you say I have gone nuts take time to consider this. You probably know I am hacked off with 'ghostbuster' groups especially in my home town, with blatant cognitive bias towards the belief Ghosts exist, before they even ask the first question!

So I created a paranormal forum where people can discuss events they cannot explain and I can interject at points and explain some of the biology/psychology as well as cultural and historical aspects of why this may happen.

This is taking me down a more activist avenue which I was not really wanting to do and the whole lot may blow up in my face but my pet hate is 'ghostbusters' spreading pseudoscience around the scientifically illiterate, just as some people's pet hate is conspiracy theorists'. Wink

Anyway heres a couple of links, feel free to leave your comments, I shall see how this pans out.

My main focus is with this forum to promote science and critical thinking to those that seek it! Smile

Regards,

Den.

Yep, that's cool idea Den.

It's probably the best way to open peoples minds - gently. Smile And just showing them that there may be (or is) other answers out there.
