Blog Post on the Paranormal

    I am not the most superstitious person, and I don't actively believe in things that are considered paranormal, but I am not closed-minded or a skeptic. I have always been intrigued by the paranormal due to the mystery surrounding things like aliens and ghosts. There isn't much evidence out there to suggest that aliens are real and abduct people, or that ghosts are real and can haunt you, yet there are countless stories claiming both. Regarding the paranormal, the Jersey Devil was a great topic to cover in class, in fact, growing up in Galloway and being near Leeds Point I heard about the Jersey Devil at a young age. I'd say I knew what the Jersey Devil was before I knew what biology was. My brother and my dad even said they saw something in the woods one night, standing on two legs with light reflecting off of yellow eyes. They didn't instantly assume it was the Jersey Devil, but what animals around Galloway walk on two legs and have yellow eyes? "It must be the Jersey Devil, or something." The "or something" is important, because that is the paranormal - the beyond normal, the "it can't be normal so it must be something unexplainable". Space isn't our normal, so anything we see in the sky that doesn't appear as being normal (helicopter, plane, or shooting star) is likely going to be called aliens. Our eyes are usually very reliable, so when we see something that is unexplainable, something not normal, it will likely be called a ghost or spirit. As I mentioned, I am not one to actively go looking for paranormal things to prove they exist, but there are times when I find things online that make me wonder. I have seen plenty of authentic videos that science wouldn't be able to explain. Does that mean they are aliens or ghosts? Not necessarily, however, I do think that there are things out there we have yet to discover and things we still need to learn so we can explain some of the phenomena we experience. The US military has a surprising amount of UFO's (Unidentified Flying Objects) on camera, although they are admittedly hard to find and not all of them have been released to the public. I will post a popular one below. It might not be aliens, but it is something paranormal, something science has not explained.
