The latest edition of true paranormal experiences... ghost hauntings, poltergeist activity, incredible premonitions, terrifying creatures, angels and demons, including:
To provide an objective investigation of paranormal activity using various scientific and non-scientific means. We will apply skepticism and balance, in an attempt, to be open minded to all evidence, which helps us to insure that we accurately record, and document, any paranormal activity present during our investigations (whether it be real or perceived). Our desire is to help people understand the things that go bump in the night, and help them find answers. To those who deal with these things, the problem is very real, and that's why we are here. To help people understand and cope with the situation.
We do not charge for our services, we are here to help.
We are seeking the truth about the things that people do not fully understand. There is no exact science yet, nor is there an abundance of training or learning techniques, we acquire knowledge as we perform more investigations and compile more evidence. There is much we know, but there is much more that we do not yet understand, but, working together WE WILL UNCOVER THE TRUTH.
We are located in Southeast Alabama about 90 miles southeast of Montgomery, in Eufaula Alabama.
To investigate the reality of the existence of paranormal phenomena, to try to ascertain the characteristic properties of such phenomena by a scientifically acceptable means, and to attempt to find scientific explanations for such phenomena.
To promote research into paranormal phenomena by fostering cooperation between ourselves, the community and interested individuals, or other research institutions dealing with paranormal phenomena.
To render assistance to members of the public with problems arising out of perceived paranormal experiences.

Hope For The Community
Our hope for the future, is to be able to host community events dealing with educating the public to paranormal phenomena, in conjunction with raising money to help with the preservation of the very rich history of our old southern towns and communities, and to aid in the restoration and clean up of some of our old historic sites and cemeteries, and other attractions. We hope that our events will bring people out and generate some much needed revenue to these locations.
Paranormal news and views for May 31, 2014:
Paranormal is a general term that designates experiences that lie outside "the range of normal experience or scientific explanation" or that indicates phenomena understood to be outside of science's current ability to explain or measure. Paranormal phenomena are distinct from certain hypothetical entities, such as dark matter and dark energy, only insofar as paranormal phenomena are inconsistent with the world as already understood through empirical observation coupled with scientific methodology.
Thousands of stories relating to paranormal phenomena are found in popular culture, folklore, and the recollections of individual subjects. In contrast, the scientific community, as referenced in statements made by organizations such as the United States National Science Foundation, maintains that scientific evidence does not support a variety of beliefs that have been characterized as paranormal.
“Paranormal” has been in the English language since at least 1920. It consists of two parts: para, which means “Beyond” and normal (which is that which we already understand). In most definitions of the word paranormal, it is described as anything that is beyond or contrary to what is deemed scientifically possible. The definition implies that the scientific explanation of the world around us is the 'normal' part of the word and 'para' makes up the above, beyond, beside, contrary, or against part of the meaning.
I prefer to say it this way,
“ Paranormal - that, which is beyond what we already know and understand.”
