Why am I drawn to the unexplained and paranormal?!

I find it so strange that almost my entire life I have been interested in everything paranormal and spiritual yet I have NEVER experienced anything paranormal NOR do I have a psychic bone in my body! I have never even seen a ghost or a UFO! I wonder why I have always been so intrigued by anything unexplained? I certainly was not raised that way. However, I have always been interested since I was a young boy. Strange indeed! Anyone else? Thoughts?

Hi Renn, this is Ray(crazer)how refreshing to hear a non experiencer express such interest in the paranormal rather than disdain. I've had paranormal experiences all my life some of them quite harrowing others more wonderful then I can describe, so I know where my interest comes from. I'm surprized you even care about something you've never went through, I'm impressed and grateful for your openess. Skeptism is so easy when you've never touched the unknown but you're not taking the easy road, that is very fair minded of you. Ray

Thanks Ray! You are my first reply ever! I can only attribute my interest as something in itself paranormal. I imagine it was a former life or things I had experienced in other spiritual existences. Whatever the reason, I am really glad because I absolutely love reading about it all! See you on the forums... :)

There are a few reasons I can think of, some mundane, some not.
Mundanely, there is the fact that there is a great deal of interest in the subject in tv shows and movies nowadays, so something you saw could have sparked an interest.
Also, perhaps you heard a paranormal urban legend or saw a 'true' ghost story on the Net, and that at least subconsciously inspired more research.

Not so mundane explanations include:
Alien abductees are said to often develop paranormal interest, perhaps in response to try and understand.
Past life experiences of such etc

I hear that skeptic's lives can be interesting concerning "the paranormal", or whatever the officialy accepted science may be at the moment. I mean, look at the legendary city of Troy, space travel, cloning, nanotechnology, biotech, Tesla's ideas... All considered lunatic rants, now publicly known as fact or the truth as we're merely told. For the most part, skeptics and 'beleivers' are both pretty darn smart. The difference is quite slight.

And welcome to ParaNormal News.

????????? Marble organic Ale? All ale is organic, at least it should be. Or are we speaking in government alien code today salsh? I think a nice full bodied ale made out of big foot scat might be more appealing.

Just remember only use free range hops in your beer making. Only happy hops make the best beer.

How did we get on this topic?

YOU are drawn to it? Imagine how uncomfortable it is for me. Science and data are my religion, my life. Its how I earn money. Yet despite this...I still believe. Something is out there. And I can't just...explain away my own experiences using science either. Its really awkward.

Gary we have chatted before , you know that beer is like a sacred blessed sacrament to me LOL. It grants me divine wisdom.

And being mostly Irish I know that the American version of Saint Patricks Day is really for non Irish Amateurs to pretend that they are Irish, and they do not hold their liquor very well.

St. Patrick brought the orthodox Christian Church to Ireland, he died on March 17th, that is why the Irish celebrate that day. They are saying: "I'll drink to that."

See but in Ireland , well things may be changing some there know days it was more of a religious holiday, kind of like Good Friday, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday ect... They don't have too many people jumping up and down drunk off their asses wearing leprechaun shirts making idiots out of themselves on that day.
That took us Americans to do that.

well OK but even though I am mostly Irish I was born here so my identity is more American then anything else.

I am Irish and i work in the hospitality industry.I dread march 17th every year.It is without doubt both the busiest and messiest day of the year.The hospitals,emergency staff and the police are pushed to breaking point every year.Religion is more or less non existent in Ireland these days apart from the older generation.That i think is a good thing.
