Where should questions about the paranormal or supernatural be placed?
We now have a subtopic for the Supernatural and the Occult, under Religion and Spirituality.
Metaphysics, which means beyond the physical would be appropriate since metaphysics describes how it all works.
I don't believe in a lot of things simply because I have not experienced for myself. For example, my sister, who is no longer a part of this world says she once saw a flying saucer. Well, we all thought she was ludricrous but she had a PH.D and was quite intelligent. I don't believe in anything supernatural unless I have experienced it myself and I think that would describe the majority of us. I don't believe in astrology. I believe when you are reading your horoscope it is so ambiguous and vague it could apply to just about anyone. And, according to the astrology books; all the signs I am supposed to be compatible with (that my sign should be compatible with); I am not and also vice versa!! Which gives me further reason not to read it. sometimes I read two a day just for the fun of it. One from an English paper and one from a spanish one, but by the time I have translated the latter one; it is already the next day. I believe in mental telepathy because I knew my daughter was in danger when she was in a car accident because I just had this "feeling'. I told a few people "something has just happened to my daughter' and most of them were saying, "Oh, I'm sure it's nothing." Yet, I knew although we were miles apart. Within 9 minutes after sharing with my friends my morbid thoughts emphatically; a call came in from the police station that my daughter had been transported to the hospital in an almost fatal car crash. One of the people in the vehicle had become paralyzed for life but my daughter recovered within 9 months. Now, my daughter who is, like my older sister, aiming for her PH.D, still to this day shares with people how her mother knew at the point of impact when the vehicle she was in crashed because all my friends had told her over and over. I also believe in prophetic dreams because that has happened to me twice. I believe we only believe what we know. And my elder sister, God rest her soul; probably did indeed see that flying saucer.These questions should be placed where our hearts feel they should be placed.
Anecdotal 'evidence' like this above, is not a reliable or credible form of evidence.
When people go through a traumatic experience, they think back to that time very frequently. Their memory, distorted by the extremity of the event, is clouded and the brain compensates for it much the same way your eyes compensate for things that it cant see in optical illusions. What results, is retrospective analysis, whereby everything that goes along with an idea is remembered and organised in the brain, and everything that goes against that idea is ignored and forgotten. This is scientific and logical fact.
So i put my answer to you to hold your supernatural and paranormal questions to science. The reason why you may not wish to do so is because the paranormal and supernatural crumble before the reliable and credible method of explanation that is called science.
Is there any legitimate inquiry being conducted into the paranormal or supernatural by someone around the globe not a TV show like Most Haunted lol?
A personal opinion is that Paranormal research is hokum, it has no basis in science. Therefore, it should not have any legitimate scientists wasting time on it. Most towns have a local branch of paranormal investigators, who do not get on TV and take it seriously. Check yellow pages or local spiritualist church.

A lot of people in the World are, not just Americans. People should have an enquiring mind, it keeps your life interesting and brain active.

What are the ratings and certificates for Supernatural - 2005 What Is and What Should Never Be 2-20?
Should ambiguous questions be put in a catch-all or should they be answered with the different interpretations?
Questions that do not contain enough information to answer (such as "When did he die?") should be placed into the "Not Enough Info" Catch-All. If a question's meaning is clear, please reword it to a suitable question. Please note that question's categories should not be used as an indicator as to the meaning of the question, as categories are often added using Suggested Categories.
Should juveniles be waived to adult court for serious crimes and be placed in the position of receiving adult mandatory sentencing?
People are often times afraid of things they don't understand - and few people have a firm grasping on the paranormal, leading to fear on the subject. One way to remove the fear is to educate and help those who are feeling victimized or frightened by paranormal activity. Professional paranormal research groups, like The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) exist solely to help educate folks on the paranormal, in the hopes that no one will ever…
It is a place where we keep questions that are inappropriate in a queue and then someone goes through them to see if they should be deleted permanently, or if they are likely to be asked again, instead placed in a holding area where only supervisors can see them, but people who ask the question again will get a message telling them the question is inappropriate.
Unanswered questions may be answered by any user. Answered questions may only be edited by registered users. Reversions may only be done by supervisors. When answering, please provide a brief and concise answer before elaborating. Opinions and comments may be placed on the Discussion page for each answer. Problems with disputed or subjective answers, vulgarity, or nonsense should be referred to a supervisor.
Tagalog questions are kept in the Mga tanong sa Tagalog category, which you can find here: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/FAQ/8742. (Tagalog questions should all go there, and not be placed in other categories. You could also visit the Tagalog site at http://tl.wiki.answers.com/, but that site is not being updated, so it will look a lot different.

This depends on who you ask and how you define 'paranormal'. Many people might tell you that 'para-celebrities' , namely anyone who has a television show or Internet presence is a paranormal expert. Others might claim that amateur ghost-hunters are experts. If you presume that credentials and experience dictate expertise, then the best answer is that parapsychologists are paranormal experts. Then again, 'paranormal' extends beyond the areas of Extrasensory Perception and Psychokinesis studied by Parapsychology…
Some people say that supernatural powers do or don't exist. In actuality supernatural powers do exist. People like ghost hunters and priests who perform exorcists encounter supernatural powers or beings such as ghosts, demons, and angels. If you are part of Christianity or almost any other religion they speak of some god. In my case I am a Christian so I believe in God. I also believe in angels which are supernatural beings, as well…
In truth there currently are no real requirements for paranormal investigation. Paranormal investigation is the casual practice of examining claims of apparitional and poltergeist activity in field settings. Paranormal investigators use various techniques to try to determine the reality of the claims. Many desire to document their findings using various technologies including photography, video and audio recording, and various environmental monitoring tools. Some paranormal investigators seek to debunk paranormal claims while others with a typically…
