Introduction

This website, as well as that of the Tampa Bay Skeptics, was started largely to help satisfy the media's demand for skeptical sources of information on paranormal and fringe-science topics.

I actually grew up believing in all sorts of paranormal phenomena, especially UFOs. It wasn't until I was in my 20s that I was introduced to the concept of "critical thinking" and began to realize that perhaps I had been misled in my youth. The story of this process of discovery is the subject of my chapter in Skeptical Odysseys.

My mind remains open to the unlikely possibility that paranormal phenomena are real after all. All I seek are the true facts, which, as I have learned, can often be disillusioning. But I have found that the thrill of discovering the genuine wonders of the universe, as revealed by science, more than compensates.

I realize that most people hold supernatural beliefs of their own and may not be interested in opening their minds, as I did, to the possibility that they also may have been misled. I mean no offense to anyone or their beliefs.
