The Occult - Occultopedia: The Occult and Unexplained Encyclopedia
Welcome to Occultopedia, the premier internet index of the paranormal, occult and inexplicable. In addition to being the foremost online destination for information about the supernatural, unusual phenomena and the occult, Occultopedia also features a variety of resources for the pagan community, new age buffs, unexplained phenomena enthusiasts, curious minds, and skeptics as well.Occultopedia is the genuine article, the original and the best internet index of the extraordinary and uncanny, shamelessly copied by many, but never equaled. Online since 1995 — at first in a free web space provider, and in 1997 finally with its own domain name and hosting — Occultopedia still is the principal online resource for those looking for the unexplained, the curious and the unusual. Occultopedia is a work in progress, and is not completed. There are so many aspects to the occult and the extraordinary, it would be next to impossible to actually finish such a project.

6 Legendary Lost Treasures That Are Still Up for Grabs Video games and old movies give us the impression that the whole world is filled with treasure chests, tombs full of bling, and random pockets of riches here and there just waiting to be picked up, but that's ridiculous -- only some parts of the world are like that. That's right -- lost treasures do exist. And plenty of them. However, if gold coins were as easy to get as Mario makes it look, someone would have done it already. Greek Gods Family Tree Doing homework? Your teacher has already seen this. See Theoi; it has properly-sourced information. Only the Creepiest Photos Ever Taken Mourning is a strange thing, and different cultures deal with it in vastly different ways.

From Stanley Burns' book Sleeping Beauty: Memorial Photography in America: These photographs were a common aspect of American culture, a part of the mourning and memorialization process.

Top 10 Unsolved Mysteries of Science Despite what cable news may tell you, scientists don’t really squabble over if evolution is real (it is) or if the climate is changing faster than can be explained by naturally-occurring phenomena (it is) or if vaccines are regarded as safe and recommended for most children (they are). Sure, there may be fine points within those categories that are debatable, but not to the extent that is commonly described by talking heads on TV. However, that’s not to say that scientists perfectly understand everything about the ways of the Universe. Physicist Brian Cox once said: “I'm comfortable with the unknown—that’s the point of science. There are places out there, billions of places out there, that we know nothing about.
