hi, ive been a reader of the forteantimes for around twenty years now and always thought Charles fort just listed odd things that happened and didn't try to judge if these things were real or not, he had theories about things and resisted sciences attempt to define, divide and separate.
i find more and more on this site people who think they know everything about all subjects and poo poo others,
if someone has seen, experienced or felt something its not for others to try and explain it away as nothing.
i think some people should read the "Why Fortean?" section in the mag.

Wouldn't have put it in quite those terms, but certainly a less than gracious post.

Hi again,
To start let me explain that im in the middle of cancer treatment for AML(cancer) and have what the docs call chemo brain, it affects all aspects of my thinking.

Now as far as i know spelling, grammar or intelligence should not be a reason to pick on people, if on this site it is then you should warn people.

Could someone please explain to what ive done wrong and who if anyone is taking the piss. Sad

In which case I apologise unreservedly for my sarcastic comment.

Sounds like everyone has misinterpreted everyone else!

Apologies to anyone I've offended or upset - normal service will now be resumed.

This is quite an odd thread to read after I've had very little time to browse the forum lately. Clearly, much has happened that is now deleted. For my part, I'm a sod for appearing sceptical about things. However, while I often doubt common interpretations of phenomena, I always regard experiences as important. We should be sceptical, but we must not dismiss, because there is no more important study to us than the human condition, and all human experience can inform about it.

I wish you the very best with your treatment, Catthing. Cancer has cast a constant shadow over my life in the last ten years. In that time there hasn't been a point at least one person close to me hasn't fought this illness.
