The Paranormal In My Life.I have been facinated by occult and supernatural subjects since a very young age. I first became interested in ghosts and haunted houses in childhood, but by the time I was a teenager, my main interest shifted to the UFO/flying saucer phenomenon. By the time I was in college, my interests included ancient astronauts, lost continents, hollow/inner-earth civilizations and historical mysteries in general. At the same time, I developed a curiousity about witchcraft and all varieties of paganism. Over the years, I have become knowledgeable concerning such subjects as Fortean phenomenon, cryptozoology, psychic powers & parapsychology, as well as all types of mythology and occult philosophy. I am also intrigued by UFO religions, Nazi occultism and the whole field of cults, conspiracies and secret societies. Needless to say, I have accumulated quite a collection of books on such things.
Now, I must make it clear that I am Agnostic in regard to all belief systems. I am neither a hard-headed debunker, nor a wide-eyed (or wild-eyed) true believer; I term myself an open-minded skeptic. Over the course of my life, I have had to tell people over and over that just because I own books on strange subjects, I do not accept everything I read as literal truth.
Any and all comments and opinions are welcome-- I will greatly appreciate your reply...
