Sorry, just couldn't bring myself to add another 'hello' to the list of subject lines.

Hello everyone. I'm here because I'm interested in the paranormal. The stories are usually better than anything on TV or in the movies. Problem is, no one has yet to my satisfaction been able to prove that they're anything more than stories. I'm pretty good at natural explanations but I'm sure I could be a lot better, which is why I'm here. If psychics, life after death, etc are real or fake I want to understand why.

Another reason is that, while I think it's bad to jump to any conclusion whether it's paranormal or natural, jumping to paranormal conclusions usually have more harmful effects. So it would be nice to be really good at finding natural explanations for things. You could convince someone to go see a doctor for that tingling sensation they keep feeling, rather than a psychic.

I recently came across this video about Quantum Theory. At the moment I'm trying to understand how this disproves many paranormal beliefs, but I guess that discussion's best left out of an intro thread.
