    I think you're muddying the waters mixing paranormal with UFO sightings, these are two different things...

    paranormal, means that its something that isn't normal, giving it an anti-scientific air, forteana doesn't have that

    My take on the term "fortean" is that it implies either unexplained or even just anomalous (meaning unusual or unexpected). It does not suggest that the phenomenon in question is either supernatural or definitely inexplicable by science. It may not have already been explained, but even if it has been, if it is strange enough, the term fortean could still be applicable.

    everthing that exists is science, even, ironically, magic

    Someone once said, everything is material and can be weighted and measured once known and understood...

    What's normal, really, what would be considered the criteria for something to be normal?...I think because something seems out of place, not 'normal' or paranormal it does not necessarily imply anti-science, science can still explain it and still be paranormal...Kind of in the same way the word supernatural, what would be the criteria for something to be natural, only after having that affirmation could (super)natural be defined...

    Actually, Paranormal means, Science has no explanation for said event or phenomenon, It's an event that science can't explain, Right now, At this moment, Dark matter is a very paranormal thing because we can't explain it scientifically.
    I don't know why I said all of this, You guys know this, I think I'm just bored.

    Either way, Science ironically is about the most paranormal thing that exists. It literally sets the bar for what is and what isn't paranormal.

    The Voronezh case is a very fascinating event, multiple types of aliens using various types of technology, I don't recall descriptions of aliens with any resemblance, these guys seem to be new visitors to our planet back in 1989...I was in the US Navy in 1989 lol...

    This morning I read a comment on twitter that 'maybe paranormal events are because an advanced AI got bored so it decided to start messing with us'...This is such a ridiculous notion I'm sorry to say, just as bad as the cosmic tricker theory...

    I think the Cosmic Trickster is just a mirror
