Professional paranormal investigator and feature columnist for Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, Joe Nickell, provided his skeptic's take on the paranormal. Nickell has investigated many so-called ghost sightings and experiences, and often is able to explain the anomalies in scientific terms. "What I'm trying to do with my work with ghosts [or bigfoot]... is to actually go and actually investigate... and provide the simplest and best scientific explanation for it," he said.
There is no escaping the double-edged sword we know as technology. Despite the progress of fantastic life-altering innovation, technology has and likely will always be used for good and bad intentions, despite the original purpose. The Prospective Americana series by artist Kevin Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) paints the picture and poses the rapidly expanding scenarios we as individuals, families, society, and our nation may face someday or are already experiencing. Who really decides what is good for you and what is not? Do we really have free will? How can we best protect our family from all the "baddies" out there? It is important to know we each have the power to shape the world around us. How will you use technology and your talents to make the world a better place?
