Hi, just wanted to say thanks for compiling all this information about parapsych! It's a smaller world than expected (on the web). Most sites are emotionally involved trying to coerce either for or against "anomolous" experiences... this is a breath of fresh air, (even though sometimes parapsych is more of a cold wind.)

Just seconding the previous poster's thumbs up.

This is one of the few blogs I follow regularly.

Hope you're not discouraged by the paucity of comments - I suspect there are many like me who enjoy reading but just haven't all that much to contribute!

Thanks for the support, guys. As a fellow blogger once put it, "Science is a method, not a position." I've never promised to be totally objective with this blog, but being generally agnostic makes it easier for me to keep a neutral tone. I'm glad people can appreciate such a stance.
