Trojan Horse Websites
It is natural for people to automatically assume that others in the paranormalist community, such as parapsychologists, ITC practitioners and hauntings investigator, have the same point of view as the majority of others in the community. In fact, there are many "schools of thought" represented in our community so that some people accept the evidence of psi but do not accept that people survive bodily death. Others accept their work but believe the work of some others is unacceptably faulty. Some people who accept mental mediumship might not accept physical mediumship.
Having differences in opinion is important and healthy for the community; however, when such differences are expressed as personal attacks, baseless opinions and/or "holier than thou judgments," then everyone in the community suffers. It is important that all of us know what these skeptics masquerading as like-minded people, in effect "Trojan Horses," have to say so long as we know to be cautious of their misleading appearance.
I am reluctant to talk about such people, and on many occasions, have said nothing when I should have spoken out. But it is important that we police our own with measured terms that do not appear accusatory or strident; others need to know. To that end, I have begun including "Discernment Required" with links I believe you need to be extra cautious about.
Managing links can be time consuming, and ATransC has the policy of not exchange links. All links are for ATransC supporters, organizations similar to ATransC that are established as research organizations and/or organizations providing service to the paranormalist community. Hauntings investigation groups are not listed unless they have a functioning research department which has published well-considered research reports. An online journal, such as the one at atransc.org, or even on the group's website is acceptable as "published," as long as it is publicly accessible. ATransC will attempt to assist in publishing such reports.
