On my latest contribution for the Intrepid blog, I give my opinion on what the Fortean community should focus on, in order to try to move the discussion forward, past the tiresome quarrels with the skeptoids & debunkers.
" past the tiresome quarrels with the skeptoids & debunkers."
Yeah. The staunch believers in materialism aren't going to give up their faith, so apart from some fun here and there, I just leave them to practice their beliefs as they choose.
I often times favor & agree with that approach. But sometimes I wish there were ways we could help nudge the evolution of our culture --and maybe our species-- the right way.
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

I now favor the direct experiential approach - immerse the Big S-holes in actual experience - take them all out to Gilliland Ranch to see some incomprehensible aerial performances or bring them to a night's tramp through a seriously haunted structure. The armchairing gets one nowhere. Shock and awe are required. True, the more calcified of them will still not admit they have been persuaded, but at least they will have been penetrated.
