Not just for Anthropologists

For those of you who might not know what an anthropologist is or the study of anthropology, you should click here What is Anthropology?. First and foremost, I am an Anthropologist, amongst other things. In this blog however, I wish to bring attention to some interesting aspects behind the science. In the words of Nancy Banks Smith,

“Anthropology is the science which tells us that people are the same the whole world over – except when they are different.” 

What fascinates me about human nature is that it defies many ideologies. How is it that we can be spread to the ends of the earth but still have similar innate fears? Superstitions? In virtually every culture you will find some sort of paranormal entity or a belief in an otherworldly force. Even subjects regarding the zodiac, have dated back to ancient folklore. This blog is meant to unveil some of the paranormal glue that holds us all together as one. This blog is enacted to share knowledge, literature, art, facts, and all things spooky. Mainly, this is for pure entertainment for all of those who are also paranormal fanatics. If you have any interest in folklore, urban legends, or superstitions, look no further! You’ve come to the right place.
